SAFETY
FEATURES
Numbers
preceding
the descriptions
correspond
with
the numbers
above
to help you locate the safety feature.
2.
LOW KICKBACK
SAW CHAIN
helps
significantly
reduce
kickback,
or the
intensity
of kickback,
due to specially
designed
depth gauges
and guard
links.
4.
SPARK ARRESTER
SCREEN retains carbon
and other flammable
particles
over 0.023 inches
(0.6ram)
in size from
engine exhaust
flow. Compliance
with local, state and federal
laws and/or
regulations
governing
the use of a spark
arrester
screen
is the user's responsibility.
See
Safety Information
for additional
information.
5.
CHAIN
BRAKE LEVER
/
FRONT
HAND GUARD
helps
protects
the operator's
left hand in the event it slips off the
front handle while the unit is running.
CHAIN
BRAKE is designed
to reduce
the possibility
of injury due to kickback
by stopping
a moving
saw chain
in
milliseconds.
It is activated
when
pressure
is applied
to the chain brake lever, as in the event of the operator's
hand
striking
the lever during kickback.
10. STOP SWITCH
immediately
stops the engine when
moved
to the STOP
position.
The stop switch
must be pushed
to the RUN position
to start or restart the engine.
11. SAFETY LATCH prevents
accidental
acceleration
of the engine. The throttle
control
trigger
(20) cannot
be squeezed
unless the safety latch is depressed.
20. CHAIN
CATCHER reduces
the danger of injury
in the event the saw chain breaks or derails
during operation.
The
chain catcher
is designed
to intercept
a whipping
chain.
This unit comes
completely
assembled.
The saw chain may be loose on the guide bar; refer to
Adjusting
the Chain
Tension
in the
Maintenance
and Repair Instructions
section.

I _
_WARNING:
Make
sure the stop switch
is in the STOP position
before
inspecting,
adjusting,
fueling
or|
/
performing
maintenance
on any part
of the unit.
Failure to do so can result
in serious
personal
injury.

Refer
to
Starting
and Stopping
Instructions.
ADDING
BAR AND
CHAroN LUBRICANT
The guide bar and saw chain
require lubrication
to minimize
friction.
Never starve
the guide bar and chain of lubricating
oil. Running
the
unit without
enough
oil will decrease
cutting
efficiency,
shorten
the
life of the saw
chain, cause rapid
dulling
of the saw chain
and
excessive
wear to the guide bar from overheating.
An insufficient
amount
of lubricating
oil is
evidenced
by smoke,
guide bar
discoloration
or pitch build-up.
_
WARNING:
Make
sure the bar lube reservoir
is
|
!
always
filled.
Failure
to fill the bar
lube reservoir
will
J
cause
irreparable
damage
to the
unit.
Bar Lube
Bar Lube
Reservoir Cap
Reservoir
Fill the bar lube reservoir
each time the fuel tank is filled. Only use bar
and chain oil that is formulated
to perform
over a wide
range of
Fig.4
temperatures
with
no diluting
required
in the bar lube reservoir.
Do
not use motor
oil or any other petroleum-based
oil.
NOTE:
This chain saw comes from the factory
with the bar lube reservoir empty.
Use the bottle of bar and chain oil that
is included
with the unit.
NOTE:
Always
clean the bar lube reservoir
cap and surrounding
area before adding
bar and chain
lubricant.
Use a
damp
cloth.
This helps prevent
debris
from entering the bar lube reservoir.
1.
Remove
the bar lube reservoir cap (Fig. 4).
2.
Carefully
pour the bar and chain oil into the bar lube reservoir.
3.
Replace
the bar lube reservoir
cap and tighten
securely.
4.
Wipe
off excess
oil.
NOTE:
Bar lube reservoirs
are designed
to keep oil slowly
flowing
onto the chain. This unit will use approximately
one
tank of bar and chain oil for every tank of fuel. If the oil flow to the guide bar and chain is too much
or too little,
refer to
Adjusting
the Automatic
Offer
in the
Maintenance
and Repair Instructions
section.
NOTE:
Do not use dirty, used or otherwise
contaminated
oils. Damage
may occur
to the guide
bar or chain.
IMPORTANT!
Please dispose of oil properly. Consult
your
local waste authority
for information
regarding
available
disposal
options.
FUEUNG
THE
ENGmNE
This unit is designed
to operate
on a mixture
of unleaded
gasoline
and 2-cycle
engine
oil. Refer to
Oil
and
Fuel Information
for complete
mixing
instructions
and detailed
fuel requirements.
NOTE:
Always
clean the fuel tank
cap and surrounding
area before
fueling the unit. Use a damp cloth.
This helps prevent
debris
from entering
the fuel tank.
1.
Turn the unit on its side so that the fuel tank is facing
up (Fig. 5).
2.
Slowly
unscrew
and remove the fuel tank cap by turning
it
counterclockwise.
3.
Slowly
pour the proper
fuel/oil
mixture
into the fuel tank
until the
tank is full.
4.
Replace
the fuel tank
cap and turn
it clockwise
to secure
it tightly.
5.
Wipe
off any spilled
fuel.
TESTmNG THE CHAroN BRAKE
_

While the unit is running, squeeze
the throttle
control
trigger to 1/3 throttle
and then engage the chain
brake by
pushing
the chain
break lever forward
with the left hand (Fig. 6).
The chain should stop
moving abruptly.
If it does, immediately
release the throttle
control trigger, turn off the engine and
return the chain brake to the disengaged
position.
Refer to
Starting
and
Stopping
Instructions.
If the chain does not stop when the chain brake is engaged,
release the throttle
control
trigger, stop the engine and have
the unit serviced
by an authorized
service center.
_
ARNING:
The chain
must not
move when
the engine
runs at idle speed.
If it does
move at idle
|
speed,
refer to the
Carburetor
Adjustment
instructions
in the
Maintenance
and
Repair
Instructions

section.
Avoid
contact
with
the muffler. A hot muffler
can cause serious
burns.
