I would say not
a normal 10 amp lead should be good enough
what you need is an extension box that has an inbuilt ELB in case you cut the lead or from a power point that has a ELB in the circuit breaker
In front of the handle on top of the saw is a hand guard. If in the course of cutting wood you hit it or pushed it forward, it will lock up the chain drive system. It should pull back towards the handle until it again clicks to release the chain. It's designed to lock up the chain drive and stop the chain when the saw kicks back.
I went here: Oregon Bar & Chain Selector http://www.oregonchain.com/pro/lookups/selguide.aspx?BusId=OCS&SellReg=USA&LangId=ENG
There are different gauges and numbers of drive links depending on the bar in use. Please for your safety stop in a local saw shop with your existing chain. It can be used as a template to fabricate a replacement in a few minutes (inquire about gauge and # of drive links). Once you have a new one leave the old one with them and for a small additional fee they will sharpen it.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH Lou Thank You for using FixYa.
Try a new spark plug first. The ignition system may be failing with heat. Try cleaning the engine with compressed air to get rid of accumulated sawdust. Check for muffler for plugging. Make sure the engine 4-strokes at full throttle, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Adjust the H needle somewhat to achieve this. Hope this helps
Please try to rotate the motor shaft a few degrees (UNPLUGGED) then try a different outlet without an extension cord just to eliminate those possibilities.
Makita 5012B IPL http://www.ereplacementparts.com/makita-5012b-chainsaw-parts-c-97_98_245_246.html
I see 4 items that could cause this and a possible 5th that is unidentified. Not knowing your level of expertise I suggest if the different outlet does not work you contact Makita for an authorizes repair center near you.
Alternately you might copy the IPL and try a local electric repair service.

A dull chain can cause this so can installing it backwards. Find a local chainsaw seller/mechanic about 5 - 10$ to sharpen. Ask for their help to relinstall it. Stihl is the best dealer in my area.
I have many chains when one dulls easy to swap in sharp one, no emergency to sharpen the dull one. HTH
