 How long should a chainsaw chain last

Like ART said, it depends on the type of wood you are cutting (the harder/more dense the wood the more it takes it out on the chain) and the amount of grit that gets into the chain when/if you cut the wood on soil. With practice you'll be able to judge when to stop cutting the felled tree before hitting soil (and I hope no rocks). As well how your saw is set up for feeding chain oil is important. I err on feeding just too much chain oil, the stuff is cheap so use it liberally. When they are dull, they won't cut well and can even leave scorch marks in the wood, because of all of the wasted friction. As for sharpening...I have 3 chains and get them sharpened for me at the same time (keep them in the old boxes, their is info for shapening on them). Again as ART said, the sharpening quality will vary, so when you find a good Sharpener (Sharpenist? Sharpenette?) stick with him/her.
