MAINTENANCE

Checking the brake trigger

Place the chain saw on firm ground and start it. Make sure the chain does not touch the ground or any other object. See the instructions under the heading Start and stop.

Check that the throttle control and throttle lockout move freely and that the return springs work properly.

  • Start the chain saw and apply full throttle. Release the throttle control and check that the chain stops and remains stationary. If the chain rotates when the throttle control is in the idle position you should check the carburettor idle adjustment.

Chain catcher

Grasp the chain saw firmly, wrapping your fingers and thumbs around the handles.

Check that the chain catcher is not damaged and is firmly attached to the body of the chain saw.

Apply full throttle and activate the chain brake by tilting your left wrist forward onto the front hand guard. Do not let go of the front handle. The chain should stop immediately.

Right hand guard

Throttle lockout

Check that the right hand guard is not damaged and that there are no visible defects, such as cracks.

  • Make sure the throttle control is locked at the idle

setting when the throttle lockout is released.

  • Press the throttle lockout and make sure it returns to

its original position when you release it.
