****** Page 2 ****** IDENTIFICATION OF SYMBOLS WARNING! This chain saw can be dangerous! Care- less or improper use can cause serious or even fatal injury. Read and understand the instruction manual before using the chain saw. Always wear appropriate ear protection, eye protection and head protection. Always use two hands when operating the chain saw. WARNING! Contacting the guide bar tip with any object should be avoided; tip contact may cause the guide bar to move suddenly upward and backward, which may cause se- rious injury. Measured maximum kickback value without chain brake for the bar and chain combination on the label. SAFETY RULES WARNING : Always disconnect spark plug wire and place wire where it can- not contact spark plug to prevent accidental starting when setting up, transporting, ad- justing or making repairs except carburetor adjustments. Because a chain saw is a high-speed wood- cutting tool, special safety precautions must be observed to reduce the risk of accidents. Careless or improper use of this tool can cause serious injury. PLAN AHEAD • Read this manual carefully until you com- pletely understand and can follow all safety rules, precautions, and operating instruc- tions before attempting to use the unit. • Restrict the use of your saw to adult users who understand and can follow safety rules, precautions, and operating instruc- tions found in this manual. • Wear protective gear. Always use steel- toed safety footwear with non-slip soles; snug-fitting clothing; heavy-duty, non-slip gloves; eye protection such as non-fog- ging, vented goggles or face screen; an approved safety hard hat; and sound barri- ers (ear plugs or mufflers) to protect your hearing. Regular users should have hear- ing checked regularly as chain saw noise can damage hearing. Secure hair above shoulder length. Hearing Protection Snug Fitting Clothing Safety Shoes Safety Hat Eye Protection Heavy Duty Gloves Safety Chaps Keep all parts of your body away from the chain when the engine is running. Keep children, bystanders, and animals a minimum of 30 feet (1 0 meters) away from the work area. Do not allow other people or animals to be near the chain saw when starting or operating the chain saw. Do not handle or operate a chain saw when you are fatigued, ill, or upset, or if you have taken alcohol, drugs, or medication. You must be in good physical condition and men- tally alem Chain saw work is strenuous. If you have any condition that might be aggra- vated by strenuous work, check with your doctor before operating a chain saw. 2
****** Page 3 ****** • Carefully plan your sawing operation in ad- vance. Do not start cutting until you have a clear work area, secure footing, and, if you are felling trees, a planned retreat path. OPERATE YOUR SAW SAFELY • Do not operate a chain saw with one hand. Serious injury to the operator, helpers, by- standers or any combination of these per- sons may result from one-handed opera- tion. A chain saw is intended for two-handed use. Operate the chain saw only in a well-venti- lated outdoor area. • Do not operate saw from a ladder or in a tree. • Make sure the chain will not make contact with any object while starting the engine. Never try to start the saw when the guide bar is in a cut. • Do not put pressure on the saw at the end of the cut. Applying pressure can cause you to lose control when the cut is com- pleted. • Stop the engine before setting the saw down. • Do not operate a chain saw that is dam- aged, improperly adjusted, or not com- pletely and securely assembled. Always replace bar, chain, hand guard, or chain brake immediately if it becomes damaged, broken or is otherwise removed. • With the engine stopped, hand carry the chain saw with the muffler away from your body, and the guide bar and chain to the rear, preferably covered with a scabbard. MAINTAIN YOUR SAW IN GOOD WORKING ORDER • Have all chain saw service performed by a qualified service dealer with the exception of the items listed in the maintenance sec- tion ofthis manual. For example, if improp- er tools are used to remove or hold the fly- wheel when servicing the clutch, structural damage to the flywheel can occur and cause the flywheel to burst. • Make certain the saw chain stops moving when the throttle trigger is released. For correction, refer to CARBURETOR AD- JUSTMENTS. • Never modify your saw in any way. • Keep the handles dry, clean, and free of oil or fuel mixture. • Keep fuel and oil caps, screws, and fas- teners securely tightened. • Use only Poulan@ accessories and re- placement parts as recommended. HANDLE FUEL WITH CAUTION • Do not smoke while handling fuel or while operating the saw. • Eliminate all sources of sparks or flame in the areas where fuel is mixed or poured. There should be no smoking, open flames, orwork that could cause sparks. Allow en- gine to cool before refueling. • Mix and pour fuel in an outdoor area on bare ground; store fuel in a cool, dry, well ventilated place; and use an approved, marked container for all fuel purposes. Wipe up all fuel spills before starting saw. Move at least 10 feet (3 meters) from fuel- ing site before starting engine. Turn the engine off and let saw cool in a non-combustible area, not on dry leaves, straw, paper, etc. Slowly remove fuel cap and refuel unit. Store the unit and fuel in an area where fuel vapors cannot reach sparks or open flames from water heaters, electric motors or switches, furnaces, etc. KICKBACK WARNING: Avoid kickback which can result in serious injury. Kickback is the backward, upward or sudden forward motion of the guide bar occurring when the saw chain near the upper tip of the guide bar con- tacts any object such as a log or branch, or when the wood closes in and pinches the saw chain in the cut. Contacting a foreign ob- ject in the wood can also result in loss of chain saw control. Rotational Kickback can occur when the moving chain contacts an object at the up- per tip of the guide bar. This contact can cause the chain to dig into the object, which stops the chain for an instant. The result is a lightning fast, reverse reaction which kicks the guide bar up and back to- ward the operator. Pinch-Kickback can occur when the the wood closes in and pinches the moving saw chain in the cut along the top of the guide bar and the saw chain IS suddenly stopped. This sudden stopping of the chain results in a reversal of the chain force used to cut wood and causes the saw to move in the opposite direction of the chain rotation. The saw is driven straight back toward the operator. Pull-ln can occur when the moving chain contacts a foreign object in the wood in the cut along the bottom of the guide bar and the saw chain is suddenly stopped. This sudden stopping pulls the saw forward and away from the operator and could easily cause the operator to lose control of the saw. Avoid Pinch-Kickback: • Be extremely aware of situations or ob- structions that can cause material to pinch the top of or otherwise stop the chain. • Do not cut more than one log at a time. • Do not twist the saw as the bar is with- drawn from an undercut when bucking. Avoid Pull-in: • Always begin cutting with the engine at full speed and the saw housing against wood. • Use wedges made of plastic or wood. Never use metal to hold the cut open. Kickback Path 3
****** Page 4 ****** Avoid Obstructions Clear The Working Area REDUCE THE CHANCE OF KICKBACK • Recognize that kickback can happen. With a basic understanding of kickback, you can reduce the element of surprise which contributes to accidents. • Never let the moving chain contact any ob- ject at the tip of the guide bar. • Keep the working area free from obstruc- tions such as other trees, branches, rocks, fences, stumps, etc. Eliminate or avoid any obstruction that your saw chain could hit while you are cutting. When cutting a branch, do not let the guide bar contact branch or other objects around it. • Keep your saw chain sharp and properly tensioned. A loose or dull chain can in- crease the chance of kickback occurring. Follow manufacturer’s chain sharpening and maintenance instructions. Check ten- Sion at regular intervals with the engine stopped, never with the engine running. Make sure the chain brake nuts are se- curely tightened after tensioning the chain. • Begin and continue cutting at full speed. If the chain is moving at a slower speed, there is greater chance of kickback occur- ring. • Cut one log at a time. • Use extreme caution when re-entering a previous cut. • Do not attempt cuts starting with the tip of the bar (plunge cuts). • Watch for shifting logs or other forces that could close a cut and pinch or fall into chain. • Use the Reduced-Kickback Guide Bar and Low-Kickback Chain specified for your saw. MAINTAIN CONTROL Stand to the left of the saw Thumb on underside of handlebar Never reverse hand positions Elbow locked Thumb on underside of handlebar Keep a good, firm grip on the saw with both hands when the engine is running and don’t let go. A firm grip will help you reduce kickback and maintain control of the saw. Keep the fingers of your left hand encir- cling and your left thumb under the front handlebar. Keep your right hand com- pletely around the rear handle whether your are right handed or left handed. Keep your left arm straight with the elbow locked. Position your left hand on the front handle- bar so it is in a straight line with your right hand on the rear handle when making bucking cuts. Never reverse right and left hand positions for any type of cutting. Stand with your weight evenly balanced on both feet. Stand slightly to the left side of the saw to keep your body from being in a direct line with the cutting chain. Do not overreach. You could be drawn or thrown off balance and lose control of the saw. Do not cut above shoulder height. It is diffi- cult to maintain control of saw above shoulder height. KICKBACK SAFETY FEATURES WARNING: The following features are included on your saw to help reduce the hazard of kickback; however, such features will not totally eliminate this danger. As a chain saw user, do not rely only on safety de- vices. You must follow all safety precau- tions, instructions, and maintenance in this manual to help avoid kickback and other forces which can result in serious injury. • Reduced-Kickback Guide Bar, designed with a small radius tip which reduces the size of the kickback danger zone on the bar tip. A Reduced-Kickback Guide Bar has been demonstrated to significantly re- duce the number and seriousness of kick- backs when tested in accordance with safety requirements for gasoline powered chain saws as set by ANSI B175.1 4
****** Page 5 ****** Reduced Kickback Symmetrical Guide Bar Small Radius Tip Symmetrical Guide Bar Large Radius Tip • Low-Kickback Chain, designed with a contoured depth gauge and guard link which deflect kickback force and allow wood to gradually ride into the cutter. Low- Kickback Chain has met kickback per- formance requirements when tested on a representative sample of chain saws be- low 3.8 cubic inch displacement specified in ANSI 8175.1 Low—Kckback Chain Contoured Depth Gauge Elongated Guard Link Deflects kickback force and allows wood to gradually ride into cutter Can Obstruct Material Not a Low Kickback Chain • Front Hand Guard, designed to reduce the chance of your left hand contacting the chain if your hand slips off the front handlebar. • Position of front and rear handlebars, de- signed with distance between handles and “in-line” with each other. The spread and “in-line” position of the hands provided by this design work together to give balance and resistance in controlling the pivot of the saw back toward the operator if kick- back occurs. CHAIN BRAKE AND CKA ANGLE • Chain Brake, designed to stop the chain in the event of kickback. A WARNING: WE DO NOT REP- RESENT AND YOU SHOULD NOT AS- SUME THAT THE CHAIN BRAKE WILL PROTECT YOU IN THE EVENT OF A KICKBACK. Kickback is a lightning fast ac- tion which throws the bar and rotating chain back and up toward the operator. Kickback can be caused by allowing contact of the bar tip in the danger zone with any hard object. Kickback can also be caused by pinching the saw chain along the top of the guide bar. This action may push the guide bar rapidly back toward the operator. Either of these events may cause you to lose control of the saw which could result in serious injury or even death. DO NOT RELY UPON ANY OF THE DEVICES BUILT INTO YOUR SAW. YOU SHOULD USE THE SAW PROPERLY AND CAREFULLY TO AVOID KICKBACK. Re- duced-kickback guide bars and low-kick- back saw chains reduce the chance and magnitude of kickback and are recom- mended. Your saw has a low kickback chain and bar as original equipment. Repairs on a chain brake should be made by an autho- rized servicing dealer. Take your unit to the place of purchase if purchased from a ser- vicing dealer, or to the nearest authorized master service dealer. Tip contact in some cases may cause a light- ning fast reverse REACTION, kicking guide bar up and back toward operator. • Pinching the saw chain along the top of the guide bar may push the guide bar rapidly back toward the operator. • Either of these reactions may cause you to lose control of the saw which could result in serious injury. Do not rely exclusively upon devices built into your saw. WARNING: Computed kickback angle (CKA) listed on your saw and listed in the CKA table below represents angle of kickback your bar and chain combinations will have when tested in accordance with CSA (Cana- dian Standards Association) and ANSI stan- dards. When purchasing replacement bar and chain, considerations should be given to the lower CKA values. Lower CKA values repre- sent safer angles to the user, higher values in- dicate more angle and higher kick energies. Computed angles represented indicate total energy and angle associated without activation of the chain brake during kickback. Activated angle represents chain stopping time relative to activation angle of chain break and resulting kick angle of saw. In all cases lower CKA val- ues represent a safer operating environment for the user. The following guide bar and chain combina- tions meet kickback requirements of CSA Standards Z62.3, & ANSI Bl 75.1 when used on saws listed in this manual. Use of bar and chain combinations other than those listed is not recommended and may not meet the CKA requirements per standard.

WARNING: Muffler is very hot dur- ing and after use. Do not touch the muffler or allow combustible material such as dry grass or fuel to do so.
****** Page 9 ****** FUELING & LUBRICATION WARNING: Remove fuel cap slowly when refueling. FUELING ENGINE This engine is certified to operate on un- leaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle air-cooled engine oil designed to be mixed at a ratio of 40:1. Poulan/Weed Eater brand synthetic oil IS recommended. Mix gasoline and oil ata ratio of 40:1. A 40: 1 ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 ounces of oil with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline. Included with this saw is a 3.2 ounce container of oil. Pour the entire contents of this container into 1 gallon of gasoline to achieve the proper fuel mixture. DO NOT USE automotive oil or boat oil. These oils will cause engine damage. When mixing fuel, follow instructions printed on container Once oil is added to gasoline, shake container momentarily to assure that the fuel is thorough- ly mixed. Always read and follow the safety rules relating to fuel before fueling your unit. BAR AND CHAIN LUBRICATION The bar and chain require continuous lubri- cation. Lubrication is provided by the auto- matic oiler system when the oil tank is kept filled. Lack of oil will quickly ruin the bar and chain. Too little oil will cause overheating shown by smoke coming from the chain and/ or discoloration of the bar. In freezing weather oil will thicken, making it necessary to thin bar and chain oil with a small amount (5 to 10%) of #1 Diesel Fuel or kerosene. Bar and chain oil must be free flowing for the oil system to pump enough oil for adequate lubrication. Genuine Poulan @ bar and chain oil is recom- mended to protect your unit against exces- Sive wear from heat and friction. PoulanO oil resists high temperature thinning. f I Pou- lane bar and chain oil is not available, usea good grade SAE 30 oil. • Never use waste oil for bar and chain lubri- cation. • Always stop the engine before removing the oil cap. IMPORTANT Experience indicates that alcohol-blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation and formation of acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. To avoid engine problems, the fuel system should be emptied before storage for 30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank, start the engine and let it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use fresh fuel next season. See STORAGE section for addi- tional information. STARTING WARNING: The chain must not move when the engine runs at idle speed. If the chain moves at idle speed refer to CAR- BURETOR ADJUSTMENT within this manual. Avoid contact with the muffler. A hot muffler can cause serious burns. To stop the engine move the ON/STOP switch to the STOP position. To start the engine hold the saw firmly on the ground as illustrated. Make sure the chain is free to turn without contacting any object. Use only 15″-18″ of rope per pull. Hold saw firmly while pulling starter rope Starter rope handle Left hand on front handle Right foot through rear handle IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER When pulling the starter rope, do not use the full extent of the rope as this can cause the rope to break. Do not let starter rope snap back. Hold the handle and let the rope re- wind slowly. NOTE: Do not attempt to cut material with the fast idle lock button in the locked position.

Sharply pull the starter rope with your right hand until the engine starts. Squeeze and release throttle trigger to allow engine to return to idle speed. DIFFICULT STARTING (or starting a flooded engine): The engine may be flooded with too much fuel if it has not started after 10 pulls. Flooded engines can be cleared of excess fuel by following the warm engine statting procedure listed above. Insure the ON/ STOP switch is in the ON position. Starting could require pulling the starter rope handle many times depending on how badly the unit is flooded. If engine fails to start, refer to the TROUBLESHOOTING TABLE or call 1-800-554-6723. CHAIN BRAKE WARNING: If the brake band is worn too thin it may break when the chain brake is triggered. With a broken brake band, the chain brake will not stop the chain. The chain brake should be replaced by an autho- rized service dealer if any patt is worn to less than 0.020″ (0.5 mm) thick. Repairs on a chain brake should be made by an autho- rized service dealer. Take your unit to the place of purchase if purchased from a ser- vicing dealer, or to the nearest authorized master service dealer. • This saw is equipped with a chain brake. The brake is designed to stop the chain if kickback occurs. • The inertia-activated chain brake is activated if the front hand guard is pushed forward, either manually (by hand) or automatically (by sudden movement). • If the brake IS already activated, it is disengaged by pulling the front hand guard back toward the front handle as far as possible. • When cutting with the saw, the chain brake must be disengaged. Disengaged Engaged Braking function control CAUTION: The chain brake must be checked several times daily. The engine must be running when performing this proce- dure. This is the only instance when the saw should be placed on the ground with the en- gine running. Place the saw on firm ground. Grip the rear handle with your right hand and the front han- dle with your left hand. Apply full throttle by fully depressing the throttle trigger. Activate the chain brake by turning your left wrist against the hand guard without releasing your grip around the front handle. The chain should stop immediately. Inertia activating function control WARNING: When performing the following procedure, the engine must be turned off. Grip the rear handle with your right hand and the front handle with your left hand. Hold the chain saw approximately 14″ (35 cm) above a stump or other wooden surface. Release your grip on the front handle and use the weight of the saw to let the top of the guide bar fall forward and contact the stump. When the tip of the bar hits the stump, the brake should activate. CUTTING METHODS IMPORTANT POINTS • Check chain tension before first use and after 1 minute of operation. See CHAIN TENSION in the ASSEMBLY section. Cut wood only. Do not cut metal, plastics, masonry, non-wood building materials, etc. Stop the saw if the chain strikes a foreign object. Inspect the saw and repair or re- place parts as necessary. Keep the chain out of dirt and sand. Even a small amount of dirt will quickly dull a chain and thus increase the possibility of kickback. Practice cutting a few small logs using the following techniques to get the “feel” of us- ing your saw before you begin a major sawing operation. Squeeze the throttle trigger and allow the engine to reach full speed before cutting. Begin cutting with the saw frame against the log Keep the engine at full speed the en- tire time you are cutting. 10
****** Page 11 ****** Allow the chain to cut for you. Exert only light downward pressure. If you force the cut, damage to the bar, chain, or engine can result. Release the throttle trigger as soon as the cut is completed, allowing the en- gine to idle. If you run the saw at full throttle without a cutting load, unnec- essary wear can occur to the chain, bar, and engine. To avoid losing control when cut is complete, do not put pressure on saw at end of cut. • Stop the engine before setting the saw down after cutting. TREE FELLING TECHNIQUES WARNING: Check for broken or dead branches which can fall while cutting causing serious injury. Do not cut near build- ings or electrical wires if you do not know the direction of tree fall, nor cut at night since you will not be ale to see well, nor during bad weather such as rain, snow, or strong winds, etc. If the tree makes contact with any utility line, the utility company should be notified immediately. • Carefully plan your sawing operation in ad- vance. • Clear the work area. You need a clear area all around the tree so you can have secure footing. • The chain saw operator should keep on the uphill side of the terrain as the tree is likely to roll or slide downhill after it is felled. • Study the natural conditions that can cause the tree to fall in a patticular direction. Natural conditions that can cause a tree to fall in a particular direction include: • The wind direction and speed. • The lean of the tree. The lean of a tree might not be apparent due to uneven or sloping terrain. IJse a plumb or level to de- termine the direction of tree lean. • Weight and branches on one side. • Surrounding trees and obstacles. Look for decay and rot If the trunk is rotted, it can snap and fall toward the operator. Check for broken or dead branches which can fall on you while cutting. Make sure there is enough room for the tree to fall. Maintain a distance of 2-1/2 tree lengths from the nearest person or other objects. En- gine noise can drown out a warning call Remove ditt, stones, loose bark, nails, sta- ples, and wire from the tree where cuts are to be made. Plan a clear retreat path to the rear and diag- onal to the line of fall. Plan a clear retreat path .99 Direction of Fall 450 FELLING LARGE TREES (6 Inches in diameter or larger) The notch method is used to fell large trees. A notch is cut on the side of the tree in the de- sired direction of fall. After a felling cut is made on the opposite side of tree, the tree will tend to fall into the notch. NOTE: If the tree has large buttress roots, remove them before making the notch. If us- ing saw to remove buttress roots, keep saw chain from contacting ground to prevent dull- ing of the chain. NOTCH CUT AND FELLING THE TREE • Make notch cut by cutting the top of the notch first. Cut through 1/3 of the diameter of the tree. Next complete the notch by cut- ting the bottom of the notch. See illustra- tion. Once the notch is cut remove the notch of wood from the tree. Final (felling) cut here. 2 in- ches above center of notch. First cut Notch Second cut Hinge • After removing the wood from the notch, make the felling cut on the opposite side of the notch. This is done by making a cut about two inches higher than the center of the notch. This will leave enough uncut wood between the felling cut and the notch to form a hinge. This hinge will help pre- vent the tree from falling in the wrong direc- tion. Hinge holds tree on stump and helps control fall Opening of felling cut Closing of notch NOTE: Before felling cut is complete, use wedges to open the cut if necessary to control the direction of fall. To avoid kickback and chain damage, use wood or plastic wedges, but never steel or iron wedges. • Be alen to signs that the tree is ready to fall: cracking sounds, widening of the fell- ing cut, or movement in the upper branches. 11
****** Page 12 ****** • As tree starts to fall, stop saw, put it down, and get away quickly on your planned re- treat path. • DO NOT cut down a partially fallen tree with your saw. Be extremely cautious with partially fallen trees that may be poorly supported. When a tree doesn’t fall com- pletely, set the saw aside and pull down the tree with a cable winch, block and tackle, or tractor. CUTTING A FALLEN TREE (BUCKING) Bucking is the term used for cutting a fallen tree to the desired log size. WARNING: Do not stand on the log being cut. Any pottion can roll causing loss of footing and control. Do not stand downhill of the log being cut. IMPORTANT POINTS • Cut only one log at a time. • Cut shattered wood very carefully; sharp pieces of wood could be flung toward oper- ator. • Use a sawhorse to cut small logs. Never allow another person to hold the log while cutting and never hold the log with your leg or foot. • Do not cut in an area where logs, limbs, and roots are tangled such as in a blown down area. Drag the logs into a clear area before cutting by pulling out exposed and cleared logs first. TYPES OF CUTTING USED FOR BUCKING WARNING: If saw becomes pinched or hung in a log, don’t try to force it out. You can lose control of the saw resulting in injury and/or damage to the saw. Stop the saw, drive a wedge of plastic or wood into the cut until the saw can be removed easily. Re- start the saw and carefully reenter the cut. To avoid kickback and chain damage, do not use a metal wedge. Do not attempt to restart your saw when it is pinched or hung in a log. I-Jee a wedge to remove pinched caw Turn saw OFF and use a plastic or wooden wedge to force cut open. Overcutting begins on the top side of the log with the bottom of the saw against the log. When overcutting use light downward pres- sure. Overcutting Undercutting Undercutting involves cutting on the under- side of the log with top of saw against the log. When undercutting use light upward pres- sure. Hold saw firmly and maintain control. The saw will tend to push back toward you. WARNING: Never turn saw upside down to undercut. The saw cannot be con- trolled in this position. Always make your first cut on the compres- Sion side of the log. The compression side of the log is where the pressure of the log’s weight is concentrated. First cut on compression side of log Second cut Second cut First cut on compression side of log BUCKING WITHOUT A SUPPORT • Overcut through 1/3 of the diameter of the log. • Roll the log over and finish with a second overcut. • Watch for logs with a compression side to prevent the saw from pinching. See il- lustrations for cutting logs with a compres- Sion side. BUCKING USING A LOG OR SUPPORT STAND • Remember your first cut is always on the compression side of the log. Refer to the illustrations below for your irst and second cut) • Your first cut should extend 1/3 of the diameter of the log • Finish with your second cut.

Do not allow the moving chain to contact any other branches or ob- jects at the nose of the guide bar when limb- ing or pruning. Allowing such contact can re- sult in serious injury. WARNING: Never climb into a tree to limb or prune. Do not stand on ladders, platforms, a log, or in any position which can cause you to lose your balance or control of the saw. IMPORTANT POINTS • Work slowly, keeping both hands firmly gripped on the saw. Maintain secure foot- ing and balance. • Watch out for springpoles. Springpoles are small size limbs which can catch the saw chain and whip toward you or pull you off bal- ance. Use extreme caution when cutting small size limbs or slender material. • Be alert for springback. Watch out for branches that are bent or under pressure. Avoid being struck by the branch or the saw when the tension in the wood fibers is released. • Keep a clear work area. Frequently clear branches out of the way to avoid tripping over them. LIMBING • Always limb atree after it is cut down. Only then can limbing be done safely and prop- erly. • Leave the larger limbs underneath the felled tree to support the tree as you work. • Start at the base of the felled tree and work toward the top, cutting branches and limbs. Remove small limbs with one cut. • Keep the tree between you and the chain. Cut from the side of the tree opposite the branch you are cutting. • Remove larger, supporting branches with the cutting techniques described in BUCK- ING WITHOUT A SUPPORT. • Always use an overcut to cut small and freely hanging limbs. Undercutting could cause limbs to fall and pinch the saw. PRUNING WARNING: Limit pruning to limbs shoulder height or below. Do not cut if branches are higher than your shoulder. Get a professional to do the job. Make your first cut 1/3 of the way through the bottom of the limb. • Next make a 2nd cut all the way through the limb. Then cut a third overcut leaving a 1 to 2 inch collar from the truck of the tree. Second cut Third cut Collar First cut Pruning technique SERVICE WARNING: Disconnect the spark plug before performing maintenance except for carburetor adjustments. We recommend all service and adjustments not listed in this manual be performed by an authorized or Master Service Dealer.

CARBURETOR ADJUSTMENTS Your carburetor is equipped with limiter caps. Carburetor adjustment is a compli- cated task. We recommend that you take your unit to an authorized service dealer. Damage will occur if you turn the needles be- yond the limiter stops. BAR MAINTENANCE If your saw cuts to one side, has to be forced through the cut, or been run with an improper amount of bar lubrication it may be neces- sary to service your bar. A worn bar will dam- age your chain and make cutting difficult. After each use, ensure ON/STOP switch is in the STOP position, then clean all sawdust from the guide bar and sprocket hole. To maintain guide bar: • Move ON/STOP switch to the STOP posi- tion. Loosen and remove chain brake nuts and chain brake. Remove bar and chain from saw. Clean the oil holes and bar groove after each 5 hours of operation. Remove Sawdust From Guide Bar Groove Oil Holes Burring of guide bar rails is a normal process of rail wear. Remove these burrs with a flat file. • When rail top is uneven, use a flat file to re- store square edges and sides. File Rail Edges—b- and Sides Square Worn Groove Correct Groove Replace guide bar when the groove is worn, the guide bar is bent or cracked, or when excess heating or burring of the rails occurs. If replacement is necessary, use only the guide bar specified for your saw in the repair pans list or on the decal located on the chain saw. CHAIN SHARPENING Chain sharpening is a complicated task that requires special tools. We recommended you refer chain sharpening to a professional chain sharpener. IGNITION TIMING Ignition timing is fixed and nonadjustable. SPARK PLUG The spark plug should be replaced each year to ensure the engine starts easier and runs better.
