Whether you need to clean out the bar groove or or tighten the chain, carry this chain saw multitool with you or attach it to the tool and you won’t have to go and look for the right tools.

The multi-tool contains the following tools (I listed what they do on my Stihl chainsaw in parenthesis):

  • 13mm (1/2″) socket (not sure)
  • 19mm deep socket  (remove/tighten bar & spark plug)
  • Small slotted screwdriver (tune engine?)
  • Large slotted screwdriver (open gas tank)
  • 4mm Allen wrench (not sure)
  • T27 Torx screwdriver (most of screws on body)
  • Bar groove clean-out tool

Garrett Wade claims this tool works with any brand chain saw. It’ll run you $25 plus $9 shipping at Garrett Wade.

    This looks like a nice alternative to the standard “scrench” (scewdriver/wrench combination tool that everyone who works in the woods carries around here. Just having a specialized tool to clean out the bar groove would make it worwhile. The screwdriver on the scrench doesn’t work all that well….

    The screwdriver could be used to tighten the chain of older chainsaws with a screw chain tensioner, 1/2″ socket may be used in some bar bolts.

    I have found at least a half-dozen “screnches” over the years while walking through the woods. I guess that means they fall out of pockets very easily. I have always believed in one of the first laws of chainsaw mechanics:

    The likelihood of breakdown is directly proportional to the distance of the saw to the tool box.

    I’m not sure how this new tool would apply to the rule, but it seems a little pricey for the minor convenience.

    Echo saws use hex screws rather than torx (or at least some do). I’m not sure if they use 4mm or not.

  5. Mac says:

    Overpriced to me too.

    I think the lost screwrenches are due to putting the screwdriver in the pocket as opposed to the wrench.

    I have so few issues with my Stihl I don’t mind the walk! I carry a sling of light stuff (e.g. hand chain sharpener, bar oil, rag, etc.) and a gallon of gas to where I’m cutting so I don’t have as far a walk back to the truck if I need something.
