What is the history of hand held chain grinders?
Back in the 1970’s Elof Granberg introduced in to the market the first hand held 12 volt chainsaw chain sharpener of this type. Granberg pride themselves as being the origin of this type of sharpener and have been constantly improving the design ever since. It is widely acknowledged that Granberg set the standard for hand held chain sharpeners and it can be strongly argued that every other grinder of the sort is some form of copy of the idea which they created all those years ago. There are many credible other handheld grinders of this type of course, but it can be argued this is the best.
