Tip & How-To about Garden
Chainsaw bars get loose all the time. This can create a dangerous situation.
Tightening the chain is done through the positioning of the bar. The further away from the drive gear it extends, the tighter the chain is.
The are usually two nuts holding the bar on. These need to be loosened slightly to allow the bar movement.
Depending on your model there may be a guard over them. Remove it.
Once the nuts are loose, locate the tensioning screw. It will be relatively small, located adjacent to and facing parallel to the bar.
This screw is attached to a metal lip that in turn is attached to the bar. The screw remains in one place while the lip moves up down.
Start spinning. Keep going until the chain is tight.
Tighten the Bar Nuts, replace the guard if necessary.
Now go slice some wood.
