REPLACING THE GUIDE BAR AND SAW CHAIN
When replacing the guide bar and saw chain, only use the
replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or their
equivalents. Refer to
Replacement Parts
. Use of any unauthorized
parts or accessories could lead to serious injury to the operator or
damage to the unit and will VOID the warranty.
Always use a replacement saw chain designated as “low-kickback”
or a saw chain that meets the low-kickback performance
requirements. A standard saw chain (a chain that does not have the
kickback-reducing guard links) should only be used by an
experienced professional chain saw operator.
WARNING:
Always use a low-kickback saw chain,
which significantly reduces the danger of kickback. Low-
kickback saw chain does not completely eliminate
kickback. A low-kickback or “safety chain,” should never
be regarded as total protection against injury.

Reinstall the air filter onto the mounting post (Fig. 43). Make sure
the opening in the air filter sits securely in the air intake (Fig. 43).
NOTE:
Operating the unit without the air filter and air filter cover
will
VOID the warranty. Keep a supply of spare air filters.

Place the air filter cover back onto the unit. Insert the tab on the
air filter cover into the slot on the chain saw housing (Fig. 42).
