STARTING AND STOPPING
CAUTION! â¢ Make certain at all times that your footing is secure and that the chain touches nothing but the wood you are cutting. â¢ Keep bystanders away from your work area.
â¢ Grip the front handle firmly with your left hand. â¢ Grip the rear handle firmly with your right hand. â¢ Press and hold the power trigger lockout button with your right thumb and squeeze the power trigger with your index finger.
Stop the saw by releasing the power trigger. If the saw does not stop, trip the chain brake and disconnect the power cable.
General instructions regarding cutters
â¢ Never cut wood using a dull chain. Having to press hard is a sure sign of a dull chain, as are very small chips. A very dull chain will produce sawdust rather than chips.
E N G L I S H
â¢ A sharp chain will produce large chips, and the saw will feed itself through the wood.
â¢ The part of the chain that saws is called the CUTTING LINK, which consists of a CUTTER (A) and DEPTH GAUGE (B). The difference in height between them determines the depth of the cut.
