Chainsaw sharpening and servicing.

Sharpening

We re-sett your chain so that every tooth is the same size and all at the same angle and check the height of your rakers so it will cut well and true. Run and test all machine functions

The cost runs from £13.25 for bars under 16″ (41cm) to £15.65 for a bar 16½” (42cm) to 24″ (61cm). Relly large bars, over 24″ (61cm) priced on inquiry.

If your chain is in a dangerous condition we will advise that you replace it with a new chain, and we will let you have a price to supply and fit this new chain.

If we believe your blade is in a dangerous condition we will not refit it.

If the machine is deemed dangerous, for example, a hole in the chassis, this will need making safe before we can return your mower or if the machine is to be returned without repair, it will have its sparkplug or blade removed to leave it not running.

Any machine left for more than two weeks after the work has been completed will be considered abandoned, and disposed of.
