The Timber Tuff CS-BWM is an electric chainsaw sharpener weighing 17.1 pounds and standing at 14.8 x 11.3 x 10.2 inches. The kit arrives with three grinding wheels with 1/8-inch, 3/16-inch, and ¼-inch diameters that provide crisp and quick sharpening.

Unlike some of the others, this chainsaw sharpener is easy to install and use by mounting it on a secure bench. It can also be mounted on a wall or other strong and flat surface.

But that’s not all…

Inside, it’s powered by a 110-volt, 60Hz motor that is able to spin the grinding wheels at 3,600 RPM. With all this power, this sharpener is able to sharpen chains from ¼-inches to ¾-inches. The Timber Tuff also features a transparent safety guide that allows you to clearly see what you’re working on a thermal overload protection in case things get too hot when working.

The device contains adjustment guides that are easy for anyone to comprehend and use, but we realized that they are a bit wanting in terms of precision.

Features

  • Maximum speed of 3600 rpm with a motor input of 110v/60Hz
  • Rated for 70 Db noise level
  • Comes with 3/16-inch, 1/8-inch, and 1/4-inch grinding blades
  • Includes thermos-overload protection and transparent safety guide

Before mounting, you should know the base on the vise contains two small ball bearings that can fall out and get lost.

So, be careful.

After successful setup, however, we learned why this device has so many good reviews. It sharpens fast and accurately, maintaining all the angles in specific chains when set correctly.

Nonetheless…

When in use, we observed the motor rotates only in one direction which affects the quality of the sharpening on one side. And the safety shield is cumbersome to put on and take off. Also, the Timber Tuff can get quite hot during operation, so be sure to wear protective gloves. Other than that, this is a great product for the price, especially when used occasionally.
