When go to cut engine is runnig but chain stops when touch the tree


Hi Pam:
Using chain saws takes a bit of getting used to, and it can be DANGEROUS.
- The chain must be sharp to be able to cut properly, and a sharp chain "bites" into the wood.
- Before you touch the chain into the wood, you have to speed up the engine. This takes some getting used to.
- Try this technique: With the chain about an inch above where you want to cut, squeeze the throttle about half way so the chain is spinning. Touch the chain to the wood and increase the engine speed as the chain starts to cut. The harder you cut, the more power you need to apply.
After a while it gets to be second nature.
Work Safe, and get an experienced friend to help with some "hands on" coaching.
Cheers.

After using anew chaini hit dirt. isharpenit withadifferntanglewillthat make a differencein cutting.


sure will , most saws have different angle cuts to teeth on blade this "angle" needs to be maintained as the "rake" teeth that are behind the cut teeth are set to provide a good way to wipe out cut debris (cut,rake,cut,etc.) this is how chain cuts thru wood , if one changes the cut angle on teeth the rake teeth might not do there job correct and saw bogs and "files" thru wood rather than chips thru wood ,takes longer ,more fuel, more effort , a look at saw cuttings tells the tale , more tiny file sawdust = dull chain --- large Chips and less dust = sharp chain

What would cause a new chain saw not to cut


Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but it sounds like you are saying your chainsaw is newer and runs fine, but it just isn't cutting wood well?

If that is the case then it means the chain wasn't sharpened correctly. Lots of guys do it at home and don't file down the raker teeth in front of the cutter heads, so the teeth don't grab into the wood and just nibble at the wood and make fine sawdust. It is always best to get the chain sharpened at a saw shop first so you can get an idea of the correct angles and depth of the rakers etc. After that you can try to match the saw shop for a while with a round file to take off ragged edges unless you have a decent professional saw sharpening unit.

New Homelite. Cut great for an hour, then the chain wouldn't grip or cut. Chain was loose so I tightened but still doesn't cut- just


The blade is no longer sharp, something not unusual after about an hour of cutting. How long a blade stays sharp depends on what type of wood you're cutting, whether the blade contacted the ground or anything other than wood at any time, and how hard you are working the bar through the wood. If you are cutting hardwood or something like railroad ties the lifespan of the blade is greatly reduced. You can easily sharpen the blade with a hand file or dremel tool with a chain saw blade kit on it or have the blade sharpened. Best practice is to have one or two extra blades so you can change them as they become dull.

I have a efco 165 chainsaw and for no reason i will be cutting good clean wood and it will just go dull. there's no cut marks inside like it hit metal. it has been doing it since it was new.


It seems like they supplied the machine with an inferior standard chain, replace the chain with a good brand and see if that solves the problem. (Chain saws are not too fond of cutting dry wood, they do far better in wet, green wood).

Hi, my 16" Ryobi seems to have suddenly gone


When you are cutting you want to keep the chain out of the dirt...dirt will dull a chain so fast it will make your head spin. sound like you need to have the chain sharpened..there are mini grinders available for about 20 bucks that will allow you to sharpen your own chain...if you don't want to go that route then you can take the chain to your local hardware store or possibly a tree cutting service to get it sharpened

I cut mostly hard woods, oak, hickory etc. I just


Have the chain professionally sharpened (Stihl or Husqvarna) at a saw retailer (take your saw). While there ask them to verify the gauge of the bar and chain are the same. When you return to pick-up your chain bring a few pieces of wood. Ask them to make a few cookies with your saw. Please reply with the result.

When cutting with my husky 440 16'' the chain catches or stops


It's hard to say. 41CCs should handle a 16" chain reasonably well.
  1. What are you cutting? Hard woods oak and maple are more difficult than pine.
  2. Are you digging in the dogs and trying to force the saw through the wood? Let the saw determine how fast it wants to cut, I rarely engage the dogs on my 359, I let the weight of the saw work for me.
  3. How sharp is your chain? Have the rakers been filed to low?
  4. Is the saw bogging down at speed before contacting the wood?
  5. Your saw was set extremely lean to meet EPA requirements. It is fitted with adjustment limiters also mandated by the EPA. To lean can impact how it performs.
All of these and few not coming to mind effect how fast the saw cuts. This isn't the answer you wanted but it is honest. We would have to see you cut and examine your saw to provide anything better. HTH

CHAIN SAW QUITS CUTTING AS IT HITS WOOD.


The make, model, and occationally the serial number help us solve your problem.

Does the engine quit running? (Carburator needs adjustment)
Or does it continue running and chain stops? (need clutch refaced or replaced.) (to aggressive a chain for the size of the engine)

I think you replaced parts unnecessarily. Maybe quicker and cheaper to visit your friendly neighborhood chainsaw shop. A good one can repair it even if they do not sell your brand.
