Thats the first time i have seen that power sharp chain up close. I wasn't expecting the cutter to be that much different. Interesting......

That twin raker set up looks like the expensive chain those guys sold who split off from Oregon.

Those chains I did this year for a guy had double rakers with a safety bumper in between them. My pics are blurry but maybe you can tell.

I was telling the Dolmar dealer about the electric saw today at noon for I overheard he and one of his son's talking about it and they were both looking in the big Oregon catalog. He brought up the deal about  that other brand of chain and then I remembered a little about it. He talked about that chain was hard to sharpen on a grinder? Maybe it was just different?

Power company bought the 160. They were happy with it. Got interesting feedback.

I may of over done it with the cutting the brick test. Tested in spruce and bar on powernow was 14", so however big that wood was I forgot to measure.

I couldnt get the chains to cut like they did new but they still cut after the resharpen. Will say they both cut a nice groove in the brick too.

I hope I got the 3 chains tested in right videos. Tested on the Poulan 260 40cc or 42cc I rebuilt. Using 16" powersharp bar and carlton semi, stihl PS3, and powersharp chain.
I felt the powersharp chain was the smoothest in the cut. Did not time the cuts. If you do let us know. I did bog 3rd cut using stihl PS3 chain.

My impression or the Power Sharp chain is that it is a viable alternative for anyone who would be challenged to sharpen their own chain with a file.

The battery powered saw would be ideal for anyone who cannot start or deal with a gasoline powered saw.

It appears to be ideal for pruning and trimming applications around the yard.

I have no doubts that it would be something my wife would like and she could do her own trimming without having to get me to do it.
