 How long should a chainsaw chain last

So I take it you "like" the harbor freight one? I will be looking into this pretty soon! After purchasing the outdoor wood furnace, I will be using the saw more than ever so it will pay to buy the sharpener. If you only sharpen a chain every year or so, I would not take up garage space to save a few bucks but like it was mentioned know who you are taking your chain too! A lesson I learned
is; Yes, a chain can be screwed up by someone sharpening it with a machine! SO, Inspect your chain before walking away from the shop!

Art has a great point there! Fact is that (I learned the embarressing way) I here more folks winding their saws wide open to limb a felled tree! I was using my buddie's saw (He is a full time logger/owner) a few years back (15) He comes out yellin an bitchin at me. Say's, "what da Heck you doing? Your not cutting a 2 foot tree, its a friggin 2" limb! The saw will last ya 20 times as long if you run the engine speed proper for what your cutting. I now think he was also refering to chain life between csharpening.
He also would whip out his file about (on average) every hour or so to touch up while working (that was said here earlier too)
Since then, I hear a saw winding up while limbing twigs and I laugh. Since I bought my rancher, I let the saws weight push thru with a nice steady slow chain speed. It may not "sound as cool" BUT, I think it definately will show in future life
