Fire It Up

Trackback URL :

Now it's time to start your chainsaw. Starting a chainsaw could be somewhat of a challenge for a few and, depending on temperature outside, on the make and style of the chain saw and the maintenance history and condition of the saw, starting can require some patience. Here's how to begin:
Start the chainsaw at a safe distance from other people. Create at least 15 feet of distance between yourself and anyone else at the time you start the saw. Later we shall discuss felling trees. In this scenario, the length between yourself and any person should be greatly increased.
Put the chainsaw on a set surface of the ground. Make sure nothing is in the way of the bar.
Push the kickback protection forward to activate the chain brake. This can ensure the chain does not begin rotating when you start the engine.
If your chainsaw has a SmartStart decompression control, press it. This can help the saw start.
If the chainsaw engine is cold or has not been running for days gone by 2-3 hours, locate the choke and pull it out as far as it will go.
While the chainsaw is secure on the floor, put your right foot through the trunk handle and use your left hand to hold the top handle of the saw. Use your right hand to pull the starter with a smooth, somewhat quick motion.
Push the choke back, keeping the throttle turned on halfway. Continue pulling the chainsaw starter until the engine starts. Some starters require some elbow grease to crank, so don't give up. You may want to pull the starter many times before the engine starts.
After the chainsaw has started, hit the throttle once and release to help make the engine speed idle. If the engine is sputtering after starting, tap the throttle a few more times soon after cranking it to obtain additional fuel injected in to the engine. Be careful not to hold the throttle too much, as this can also cause the engine to avoid running.
Usually do not release the chain brake until you will be ready to start actually sawing.
