Saw Chain Maintenance
Four Basic Saw Chain Rules Oregon® urges you to become familiar with the four basic saw chain rules. Users who know and follow these rules can count on superior performance from their saw chain, guide bar, and drive sprocket — and reduce safety hazards at the same time. Rule Number 1 Your saw chain must be correctly tensioned More saw chain and guide bar problems are caused by incorrect
saw chain tension than by any other single factor. • See "How to Tension your Saw Chain" on page 22.
Rule Number 2 Your saw chain must be well lubricated
A constant supply of oil to your chainsaw’s guide bar, saw chain and drive sprocket is vital. Without it, excessive friction, wear, and damage will occur.
