Cutting Tips

Tension Keep your saw chain correctly tensioned. Check and adjust often.

Cutters Keep cutters sharp. Touch up the cutting edge with a file every hour, more often if needed. Do not force dull saw chain to cut.

Depth Gauges Check and adjust your cutter’s depth gauges every 3 – 4 sharpenings or more often as needed.

Guide Bar Keep the guide bar groove clean and the oil hole open. Turn symmetrical* guide bars over to equalize rail wear. *Do not turn Guard Tip® guide bars over.

Drive Sprocket Replace the drive sprocket after every two saw chains, or sooner.

Cutting in Cold Weather Cutting frozen wood will cause rapid wear and possible breakage around the rear rivet hole of cutters. Follow the steps below to keep cold-weather wear to a minimum.

0° C -32° F

Oil in Cold Weather Dilute guide bar chain oil 25 percent with clean kerosene or diesel oil. Use twice as much of this diluted oil during operation, and be certain your saw chain is receiving oil from the chainsaw.
