I do a lot of small tree/brush clearing and am constantly dulling the chain. Got an Oregon Powersharp bar and chain for Christmas. It has a totally different style of chain and a grinding stone that attaches to the tip of the bar when you are ready to sharpen it. In a couple seconds the chain is sharp. I have used it a couple times already and am quite impressed. How well it holds up over time is yet to be seen.
Tried getting a $ on the setup but no luck online. Being that you would have to have a special bar and chain with a dresser link and the sharpener I would think it would be a good bit. McCulloch used to have a built in sharpener that worked but really shortened the chain life. Interesting set up for sure. How does yours hold up as far as the wear on the chain and stone?

Edit: I should have read the part where you said how well it holds up is yet to be seen. Keep us posted down the road though. Thanks Grump
