Are you 'riding' the saw while in the cut? You shouldn't have to exert excessive downward pressure to make the saw cut, and if you are, you are possibly causing the centrifugal clutch to come close to stalling.

As Jack suggested above, make sure the roller tip (if your guide bar has one) is spinning freely and make sure the oiler is pumping by holding the bar away from a clean light colored surface while ramping the throttle wide open for a second or two. If its oiling properly, you'll see a fine line of oil appear as it slings off the end of the bar.

Hi Kevin
Assuming it's a 2 stroke with oil in the fuel so the engine is not overheating & seizing? 25:1 Mix
Check the Sprocket bearing on the front of the bar. Is it seizing because of lack of oil or even damaged.
Take the chain off and test.
Cheers

What is the best chainsaw for a female to use, need easy start, no electrical?


None, they are too dangerous. You need strong arms in case of kick back.

But if you must, a national and well known brand like Stihl or Husquvarna. The Stihl MS170 might suit you.

"I am very satisfied with every aspect of this saw and love how light weight it is. It starts easily and runs great. I have cut up to 16 inch diameter oak, and it did a great job, considering the size of the saw. The local dealer was very knowledgeable and very helpful."

The STIHL MS 170 is the perfect lightweight chainsaw for homeowners seeking a great value. Compact, lightweight with just the right amount of power, the MS 170 makes quick work of trimming or cutting small trees, fallen limbs after a storm, and other tasks around the yard. And even at its great price, the MS 170 has many of the same design features the professionals depend on.

Please make sure you also get the safety gear. Vibration proof gloves to stop 'white finger', hard hat, visor, ear defenders, and most importantly chainsaw pants which has carbon fibres to jam the chain rather than cutting your leg off.

Stihl ms 210. Starts ok revs fast then cuts out. Have to re start on full choke then run fast again on 1/2 choke and again stops after 2-3 seconds.


you have an air leak causing the unit to run to fast. The air leak is also over powering the flow of fuel causing it to die. Hopefully you have not tried running it repeatedly like this or you may have done severe internal damage due to running it to lean

I have a Stihl MS 290, runs great, but the chain keeps tightening it's self on it's own


That's an unusual problem, usually the opposite happens. After making sure the chain brake is off, loosen the two nuts that hold the bar. Be sure to hold the bar up when adjusting the tensioner screw and adjust until the chain is just snug, but not too tight. While still holding the bar up, tighten the two nuts firmly. Check to see that the chain can move freely by hand. Then start the saw and run the chain at speed with something in front of the nose to check for adequate lubrication. You should note a slight fine spray of oil on the object in front of the nose of the bar. Inadequate lubrication, a chain that is binding on the bar, or an overly tight chain can cause the bar to heat up and expand, further tightening the chain. A properly adjusted Stihl saw will use almost all of the chain oil in the reservoir for every tank of gas. Too much oil is better than too little. The oil feed may have to be adjusted for operating in temperature extremes. If operating in very hot conditions, be sure that the saw has not run out of chain oil. The oil feeds faster when hot.

Does the saw run freely when not cutting? Dont press too hard, let the saw do the work. Is the cut compressing? Pull the saw out and under cut. Drive a plastic wedge in to the log

Stihl saw leaking chain oil?


Chainsaws can become messy even if the oiler is working correctly. Check the oil level frequently during a cutting session. If frequent refills are necessary, the oiler may be defective
