SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Only use wedges made of wood or plastic. Do not use metal to
hold a cut open.
Follow the manufacturer’s sharpening and maintenance
instructions for the saw chain.
Only use replacement bars and chains specified by the
manufacturer or the equivalent. These are available from a Sears
or other qualified service dealer. 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.
Use devices that reduce the risks associated with kickback,
such as low-kickback chains, guide bar nose guards, chain
brakes and low-kickback guide bars. There are no other
replacement components for achieving kickback protection in

A low-kickback saw chain is a chain that has met the kickback
performance requirements of ANSI/OPEI B175.1-2012 when
tested according to the provisions specified in ANSI/OPEI
B175.1-2012. A low-kickback saw chain is a chain that is also in
accordance with CSA Z62.3. Do not use a replacement saw
chain unless it has met these requirements for this specific
model or has been designated as a low-kickback replacement
saw chain in accordance with ANSI/OPEI B175.1-2012. As saw
chains are sharpened, some of the low-kickback qualities are
lost and extra caution should be used.
Do not install a bow guide on this unit. Bow guides have larger
kickback zones, which increase the chance of kickback and
serious injury. This increase is not significantly reduced by using
a low-kickback saw chain. Using a bow guide on this unit is
