Battery powered chainsaw cleaning

battery powered chainsaw companion brush

I usually clean out the wood chips on our Oregon battery powered chainsaw with a nearby twig, but a small paintbrush gets the job done faster and cleaner.

Two bungee cord straps on the chainsaw handlebar keeps the brush handy.

If the brush had a flat head screwdriver as part of the handle it would make tightening the chain in the field easier.

"If the brush had a flat head screwdriver as part of the handle it would make tightening the chain in the field easier." Why can't you figure out a way to attach as small flat head screwdriver to the handle, or at least lock it into place with the bungee cord along with the paintbrush?

Sounds like a new project to me. I don't see why you couldn't bore a hole in the handle of the brush and epoxy a small screwdriver in it. Probably not putting allot of torque on the screwdriver so it would probably outlast the brush itself. Might even patent it and sell it back to Oregon if they were interested.
