Dealer expertise You can help your customers stay safe and get the job done right. As you learn more, you’ll know exactly which products are right for the job. Getting familiar with the chainsaw fit- up information in this catalog is a good first step. The fit-up and application information in this catalog are based on data pulled from a variety of sources. This guide can help you choose products that are right for your customer. But a note of caution — it is possible that some of the information provided contains errors. That’s because it’s not possible to account for variations in cutting conditions. Or, for how people might use these products from region to region. Dealers should confirm all data and infor- mation provided herein. Oregon disclaims all responsibility for any errors contained in this catalog. All dealers are urged to become as knowledgeable as possible about: • Local conditions and customer needs • Kickback, and how you can help limit your customers’ exposure to injury • Issues specific to Oregon products, including our end‑use symbols, Intenz ® guide bars and Guard Mate ® bar-nose tip guards, as seen in these pages
Dealers, use extra caution if your customer wants: Cutting chain that does not meet the low kickback provisions of the ANSI standard, or any replacement guide bar with a nose radius larger than the original-equipment nose. Oregon urges you — and all of our dealers — to advise these customers that this choice brings added risk of injury. Note also, that customers can buy the chains and bars that meet ANSI low kickback performance requirements. In accordance with ANSI, dealers should advise customers not to use yel- low label chain if they do not have experience or specialized training for dealing with kickback. Oregon chain package labeling Boxes of Oregon chain are identified on the outside. We identify them using a green or a yellow label. Oregon preprints loop boxes and sheets of labels with the required ANSI kickback information. These preprinted loop boxes and labels are packed inside reel boxes of Oregon chain. Dealers must pack loops of chain into the loop box that has the cor- responding green or yellow ANSI information. If you are not using a preprinted loop box, then apply the corresponding green or yellow label to either: the chain, the saw’s guide bar or the invoice at the time of sale. Extra boxes and labels are available through your Oregon distributor.
