HELPER HANDLE WITH ROLLER – G975
HELPER HANDLE WITH ROLLER
The helper handle with roller is designed for use with double end saw bars when using a single power head.
The Granberg Helper Handle with Roller Designed by Elof Granberg in 1960s, specifically for the Granberg double ended bar for The original Alaskan Sr. Mill which was made of all steel and fairly heavy. Having an outboard helper made milling easier so the Sr Mill came with the Helper Handle. Now primarily used today on our Alaskan C2 Mill Packages which also come with an Alaskan Mill, double ended saw bar, Granberg ripping chain, Precision Sharpener, Slabbing Brackets and Oiler Kit.
This sturdy aluminum handle incorporates an adjustable chain roller so chain tension can be adjusted at the Helper Handle end of the saw bar. Needed for milling with a double end saw bar.
We sell two versions of the Helper Handle. One with Roller and one without. The Helper Handle without roller is for standard single ended saw bars.

Mitch Giebler –
Ran the helper wide open for 6 years on a 72 inch grand berg in oak maple walnut. I thought to myself wonder when the bearings in that thing will implode. 2 weeks later ca-pow chain to the knee cap wide open. Im ok. but it lasted a long time how ever is it possible to design a bearing setup that can be dis-assembled and serviced?
