From The Wood Cutter we want to teach you how to care for and maintain chainsaws.
It is not complicated, but for them to operate safely and effectively, they require a minimum of maintenance.
You can carry out most of the maintenance in person following the instructions given in the operating instructions. However, in The Wood Cutter you can count on all the spare parts and accessories you need and of course, we can assist you when you have to carry out some repair or revision on your machine.
When storing the chainsaw for an extended period of time.
- First we must empty the deposits, both gasoline with oil (fuel) and oil chain. Note: it is advisable to use a funnel or an extraction syringe.
- Loosen the grilles or screws of the top cover.
- Release the safety pin or screw of the air filter, remove the air filter (open if necessary), brush with a soft brush or blow from the inside out.
- Place the air filter .
- Check the condition of the spark plug (replace if it is not in good condition).
- Close upper housing.
- Loosen screw or chain cap screws.
- Clean cap, chain brake strap and drive pinion.
- Remove the chain and store it with a couple of drops of oil so it is lubricated and does not rust.
- Turn the chain saw blade.
- Grease the sword attack pin Note: it does not appear in the video.
- Replace the cap and tighten the retaining screws.
If you are going to work with the chainsaw continuously:
After each work shift.
Check the tension and lubrication level of the chain. Readjust the chain tension and, if necessary, replace the oil level. Get used to refueling the chainsaw before storing it at the end of the working day if you plan to use it the next day. In this way, it will always be ready for use.
At periodic intervals.
When the air filter starts to become clogged due to the accumulation of sawdust, you should remove it and wash it with a little warm water and a mild detergent. The frequency with which this task is needed will obviously depend on how often the chainsaw is used.
From time to time, you should also use pressurized air to remove sawdust and dirt accumulated on the cooling fins and brake belt.
