How do you sharpen the blades?

Asked by: Joe
Hi Joe! Stop the motor and disconnect from power supply. Tighten the chain tension enough that the chain does not wobble. Do all of your filing at the midpoint of the bar. Wear gloves for protection. Use a 5/32 in. diameter round file and holder. Keep the file level with the top plate of the tooth. Do not let the file dip or rock. Using light but firm pressure, stroke towards the front corner of the tooth. Lift file away from the steel on each return stroke. Put a few firm strokes on every tooth. File all left hand cutters in one direction. Then move to the other side and file the right hand cutters in the opposite direction. Occasionally remove filings from the file with a wire brush. Thanks for your question!

8 in. 5 Amp Electric Lopper is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from not a true lopper, blade type I used it a couple times but found it cumbersome, pole saw is easier to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not excited to own it I am a frequent user of chain and pole saw and I have some good hours of experience when cutting logs. I used it to cut a couple of small size trees. It had no trouble cutting limbs up to 5” inches and I did not try anything thicker than that since its only recommend for limbs up to 4” diameter. Before you start it, make sure that you read the user manual completely. Manual certainly provides detailed information with illustrations and some good cutting tips. There is a 2 minutes handle assembly required. Now, this lopper joins my tools with some disappointments. The moment I held it, the first obvious feeling was how lopsided it is. I know that the chain and bar adds some weight to the front but the motor assembly being on the left adds a pull towards the left. I personally think that the motor assembly should’ve been behind the chain bar similar to Ryobi’s Pole Saw that is very similar in nature except that it has a pole. 2nd disappointment is the opening at the bottom of the rear handle and the size of cord retainer. I tried to power it using 14 gauge cord but the opening is so small that the cable could not pass through. So I tried 16 gauge cord and with good struggle it passed through the opening but would not fit into cord retainer. For those who don’t know, the lower the gauge number, the thicker and better the cable is. With this lopper, I have to use the cheapest and thinnest cable out there. 3rd disappointment is the oil reservoir cap made of cheap flexible rubber that makes it easier for the bar oil to leak. So I empty it out completely after every use. This cap has a small retainer rubber piece within the oil reservoir that makes it a bit difficult to add the oil. So I completely remove it before re-filling but if I keep removing it, it will not last longer. 4th disappointment is that when I store it by hanging it on my tools storage panel, the direction of the oil reservoir ends up at the bottom which makes the oil leakage easier and that’s another reason that I have to empty out the oil after every use. Overall, I am not excited to own it and prefer to use my chain saw for cutting tasks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic deal when I bought it I bought this electric lopper two months ago from my local Home Depot store for only $29, which is a fantastic deal. It is now being sold at its normal $99 price, so it's about the same as its competitors like the Worx JawSaw, which I also own. I would still choose it over the Worx for its larger 8" bar and fully automatic chain oiler. It is also easier to get into tight places, since the entire jaw opens and closes, whereas it is a fixed one foot wide on the Worx. The only advatage to the Worx is that chain tensioning is a lot easier and safer. Both tools are about the same weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for taking down overgrown shrubbery, but... Some reviews were from folks who didn't read the manual. Tsk, Tsk. 1) Assemble the handle. 2) ADD Bar & Chain OIL, not included!!!! (but needed by ANY chain saw) 3) Check the chain tension. 4) Run for a couple of minutes, cutting some branches. 5) Reset the chain tension (new chains stretch) 6) Run for 10-15 minutes 7) Check chain tension and oil level. Adjust as needed. 8) Repeat steps 6 & 7 every 15 minutes of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great help... I purchased this even though I have a 14 inch chain saw. I have arthritis in my hands and lopping tree branches causes problems. This makes the process much easier, especially since it will handle larger tree branches where I normally would need my other chain saw. What makes this great is there is no chance of kick back which could happen when branches are laying on the ground. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Electric Lopper Assembly was a snap. Instructions, important but very easy. The cut branch edges was not smooth but that may be more due to the "operators" than the lopper. Best part: I bought this for $100 and got to enjoy 2+ hours with my two boys while saving $350 to pay someone else to do the same job. We did this over two weeks ago and now all 19 crape myrtles lining the front of my house looks lively again. Awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tree saw Excellent saw. I cut down two trees (4 inch trunks) in less than 15 minutes. This tool cut through the remaining branches with ease. Just remember to keep the oil well full after each use and always check the chain and make sure it is tight.
