What information is available in Chainsaw
How to start a Chainsaw – Chainsaw starting procedures vary from chainsaw to chainsaw. Most engines have a choke lever. If the engine is cold, the carburetor should be choked. If the chainsaw engine is already warm, it is not necessary to choke the engine before starting. Once a cold engine that has been choked sounds like it has almost started, the choke lever is to be set to the normal position. Then the recoil starter is to be pulled again. The chainsaw should start right up.
How to add bar oil to a Chainsaw – Most chainsaws use an oil reservoir to hold the bar oil. Bar oil can be added either by carefully pouring from the bottle directly into the reservoir, or by using a small funnel to ensure that no oil is spilled.
How often to change a Chainsaw spark plug – Most chainsaw manufacturers recommend that the chainsaw plug be changed every 100 hours of operating time.
How adjust the chain tension on a Chainsaw – Most chainsaws use two large bolts to secure the bar to the chassis of the chainsaw. The location of the bar with respect to the chassis determines the chain tension. If the chain needs to be tightened or loosened, first the bolts holding the bar must be loosened. Next a screw drive mechanism allows the bar to slide forward or backward when the blade tensioning screw is adjusted. Finally, the bar must be secured to the chassis to prevent the chain tension from changing.
How to sharpen a Chainsaw blade – Chainsaw blades can be sharpened using a file. Most recreational homeowners choose to have a spare blade that has been sharpened by a professional. This allows a quick blade change rather than taking the time to file the blade sharp.
How to clean the Chainsaw air filter – Chainsaws are operated in dusty conditions. It is important to make sure that the filter is clean so that a proper amount of clean air can be brought into the carburetor.
How to store the Chainsaw – Chainsaws should be put away properly when storing for 3 or more months of inactivity. The fuel should be drained from the fuel tank. The engine should be run until engine stops - this prevents the carburetor diaphragms from sticking together. Remove the chainsaw chain and and bar from the saw. Clean and coat them with a corrosion preventing oil. The saw should be thoroughly cleaned including the engine cooling fins. Finally the chainsaw should be stored in a safe and dry environment.
