    1. FUEL

    Only use oil that is expressly labelled for use with air-cooled 2-stroke engines. Use unleaded petrol with a minimum octane rating of 89.

    WARNING!: PETROL IS VERY FLAMMABLE. AVOID SMOKING OR CAUSING ANY SPARKS OR FLAMES NEAR FUEL. MAKE SURE THAT YOU STOP THE MOTOR AND ALLOW IT TO COOL BEFORE REFUELLING THE CHAINSAW. SELECT AN OPEN OUTDOOR AREA FOR FUELLING AND MOVE AT LEAST 3M AWAY FROM THE FUELLING POINT BEFORE STARTING THE MOTOR.

    PETROL CHAINSAW

    500ml Regular Unleaded

    1. Fill with unleaded petrol up to fuel line.

    2. Add 2-stroke oil up to oil line.

    3. Shake vigorously for a thorough mix.

    4. Remove YELLOW fuel tank cap and fill the fuel tank to about 80% of its capacity with the fuel mix.

    Fuel tank capacity: 310ml

    5. Fasten the fuel tank cap and clean any spillage.

    2. CHAIN BAR OIL 3. CHAIN BRAKE & CHOKE

    OPERATION

    Chain brake/Anti kickback guard

    The chain brake operates automatically in the event of kick back. Kick back occurs if the chain catches on the wood being cut. In the event of the chain catching, the chainsaw will push back suddenly, when this happens, your hand (which is on the side handle during operation) will naturally move forward automatically causing the guard to be pushed forward, engaging the chain brake and stopping the chain.

    CHOKE - When the chainsaw is cold first pull out the choke control to the CHOKE position, (fully withdrawn).

    RUN - Once the choke control has been pulled out, it returns automatically when the throttle trigger is operated

    IMPORTANT!: DO NOT PUSH THE CHOKE IN MANUALLY. THE CHOKE WILL AUTOMATICALLY RETURN TO RUN POSITION WHEN THE THROTTLE SAFETY LOCK AND TRIGGER ARE PRESSED.

    Automatic oil feed system

    The chainsaw is equipped with an automatic oil feed system. This delivers oil to the bar and chain.Run the engine at medium speed and check that the chain splatters a thin line of oil which can be seen on the ground/material when the bar is pointed downwards. This may take 15-30 seconds to occur. Please refer to maintenance section overleaf for detailed instructions on how to adjust the automatic oil feed system if insufficient chain bar oil is being applied to the chain.

    WARNING!: NEVER START WORK UNLESS THE CHAIN AND BAR ARE LUBICATED

    NOTE: ONLY USE OIL THAT IS EXPRESSLY LABELLED CHAIN BAR OIL

    START RUNBRAKE ON BRAKE OFF

    1. Remove BLACK chain bar oil cap and fill the tank to about 80% of its capacity with chain bar oil.

    Chain Bar Oil Tank Capacity: 210ml

    2. Fasten the chain bar oil cap and clean any oil spillage.

    Stopping the chainsaw

    O OFF

    I ON1. Set the switch to ON I.

    2. Make sure the brake is ON when starting for safety, by pushing the front guard forward

    3. Pull out the choke (fully withdrawn).

    4. Depress the priming bulb up to 10 times until the bulb is full.

    5. Hold the chainsaw securely on the ground. Pull the recoil starter until engine kicks (attempts to start). Depress throttle trigger to release choke to RUN position. Pull the recoil starter several times until started.

    6. Allow the engine to warm up for 10 seconds.

    1. When ready to start cutting, release the brake, by pulling the front guard back firmly towards the rear of the chainsaw.

    3. The chainsaw has bucking spikes to assist with cutting and reduce the chance of kickback, use them as follows. Keep the bucking spikes touching the wood you are cutting. Due to the rotation of the chain, it will pull the saw into the wood. When the bucking spikes are touching the timber, it will help prevent any sudden jerking or kick-back.

    4. Engage chain brake.

    5. Set the On/Off switch to OFF O.

    Adjusting the chain tension

    WARNING!: THE CHAIN HAS SHARP EDGES. FOR YOUR SAFETY PLEASE USE WORK GLOVES.

    NOTE: RECHECK THE TENSION AFTER A FEW MINUTES OF CUTTING AS THE CHAIN MAY STRETCH AFTER INITIAL USE. A LOOSE CHAIN MAY CAUSE WEAR TO BOTH THE CHAIN AND THE GUIDE BAR AND BECOME A MAJOR SAFETY HAZARD.

    Rotate Clockwise To Tension Chain

    I ON

    5 - 6.3mm gap is the ideal tension

    1. Set the switch to ON I.

    2. Make sure the brake is ON when starting for safety, by pushing the front guard forward.

    3. Hold the chainsaw securely on the ground and pull vigorously on the recoil starter. Repeat (at least 15 times) until the engine starts.

    4. Allow the engine to run for a few moments.

    5. When ready to start cutting, release the brake, by pulling the front guard back firmly towards the rear of the chainsaw.

    1. Loosen, but do not remove the chain drive cover nuts.

    2. Adjust the chain tensioner screw clockwise until the links of the chain just touch the bottom edge of the guide bar.

    3. For the correct chain tension, pull up on the chain from the top and middle of the exposed guide bar. The bottom tip of the links should only just stay in the track.

    4. Adjust the chain tension screw for the correct tension.

    5. Once tensioned correctly tighten the chain drive cover nuts.

  • Bucking is cutting a log into lengths for easier handling.To saw a log lying on the ground, first saw halfway, then roll the log over and cut from the opposite side.To saw the end of a log supported off the ground, first saw up from the bottom one-third through the log then finish by sawing down from the top. To saw a log in the middle of two supports holding it off the ground, first saw down from the top one-third through the log then finish by sawing up from the bottom.

    Limbing is the process of removing the branches from a fallen tree. Check the direction in which a branch will bend before cutting it. Always cut on the opposite side to the bending direction so that the guide bar is not pinched in the cut. For large limbs that cannot be removed in one cut, make an initial cut from the bent side and finish by sawing from the opposite direction. Do not remove limbs that are supporting the fallen tree on the ground until the tree has been cut into lengths.

    Chain SharpeningChain File: 3.96mm (5/32)Chain Pitch: 9.53mm (3/8)Chain Gauge: 1.3mm (0.050)

    Sharpen the chain regularly to maintain optimumperformance of the saw. Signs of a dull chain are: The sawdust becomes powder-like Extra force is required to execute a cut The cut does not track in a straight line Increased vibration Increased fuel consumption

    Sharpen each cutter using a chain file. Always use outward strokes and maintain a 30 angle between the chain and file. After sharpening, the cutters must all have the same width and length.After every 3-4 uses get an authorised repair centre to professionally sharpen your chain. They have the special tools necessary to ensure the correct cutting angles and depths.

    Guide bar wearReverse the guide bar every 8 working hours to ensure uniform wear. Check the guide rails frequently and if necessary remove burrs and square up the rails using a flat file.

    Maintenance to be performed after each use

    NOTE: THE CHAIN BRAKE MUST BE OFF/DISENGAGED TO REMOVE THE CHAIN DRIVE COVER, GUIDE BAR AND CHAIN.

    Pruning is the removal of a limb or branch from a standing tree.

    Felling a tree

    Decide the direction in which you wish the tree to fall taking into account the direction of the wind, the position of branches, lean of the tree, ease of subsequent limbing and bucking and other factors prevalent at the time.

    WARNING!: FELLING A TREE SHOULD ONLY BE DONE BY TRAINED OPERATORS.

    WARNING!: ALWAYS KEEP A BALANCED STANCE. DO NOT STAND ON THE LOG. BE ALERT TO THE FACT THAT THE LOG MAY ROLL OVER. WHEN WORKING ON A SLOPE, ALWAYS STAND ON THE UP HILL SIDE OF THE LOG.
