REPLACING
THE GUIDE
BAR AND SAW CHAIN
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.
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.
