Kits Are Designed to Keep Saw Chains Properly Maintained for Increased Cutting Performance

The new Saw Chain Sharpening Kits are ideal for use with Makita’s full range of battery-powered chain saws and pole saws.

March 20, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional tools and accessories, has released two saw chain sharpening kits to retain optimal sharpness levels for both chain saws and pole saws. The kits are self-contained and include everything that a pro would need to get started maintaining their saw chains.

The new kits are part of the continuing expansion of Makita’s outdoor power equipment lineup with more equipment and tools including chain saws and pole saws. Makita currently offers 15 battery powered chain saws and four pole saws across the XGT® and the LXT® cordless systems.  
“Pros know the value of a sharp chain, with many contractors and arborists sharpening their chain before starting their workday,” Said Nicole Tougas, product manager, outdoor power equipment, Makita U.S.A, Inc., “These sharpening kits enable users to maintain their saw chains and keep that fresh out-of-the-box factory sharpened cut quality.”
Equipment and Tools Keep Pros Ready
The 5/32” Chain Sharpening Kit (D-75910) and the 4.5 mm Chain Sharpening Kit (D-75926) help pro users like arborists, linemen, contractors, loggers, and more get more work done. Proper chain maintenance and sharpening for pole saws and chain saws allows more material to be removed per cut, resulting in optimal cutting performance.
Recognizing that pros need to have a durable sharpening kit that can reside with their everyday tool kit to be used when needed, Makita designed the D-75910 and the D-75926 to include a saw chain file, a file guide, a flat file, a depth gauge tool and two extra file handles. The saw chain file is used together with the file guide to sharpen saw chain cutting teeth, and the flat file is used with the depth gauge tool to maintain proper saw chain depth gauge settings. The kit is offered in a convenient storage bag to protect the tools from the elements. Makita also offers replacements for the round files and the flat files in either a 2 pack or a 12 pack so a pro can update their kit when needed.
Accessories for Pro Use
The addition of these accessories compliment the Makita chain saw and pole saw lineup with a durable and long-lasting kit to keep their tools operating at top performance levels. Makita has engineered both the 5/32” Chain Sharpening Kit (D-75910) and the 4.5 mm Chain Sharpening Kit (D-75926) to correspond to chain saws and pole saws that use these size chains.
