Overheating Chainsaw is not cutting as it should, does not seem to have the original power to cut timber ( even though only used for 2 hrs max ) and it seems to be getting very hot - Have noticed oil on the cut timber not seen previously

I bought my husband a 2 pc. chainsaw set. Blue Max 14"-20" It will not stay powered up to make a cut, after it is started. We need to know where to take it for service, or what process is needed for a

A good idea to take it to home depot. Some of them have stations that work on fixing power tools and other things that break often. As for your problem it seems as if there is some sort of connection problem with the battery. Whenever you move it may jostle the connection enough to cut it off there for turning of the chainsaw. If you can check they battery and see if there are any loose cables that may help and if not take it to home depot.

Sadly, the 3816 is not designed for larger timber. 38cc is only for smaller limbs, As a general rule also the largest timber to cut should only be 2/3 of the length of the bar

I am trying to locate and download/purchase a Manual for the above item which I have just bought second hand. It is my first time of using a chainsaw and wish to ensure that I do things safely. Many...

First of all, it aint a chainsaw you have, but a ride-on mower. Man, are you going to have trouble when you try to cut down a tree.....Seriously, though, I haven't got a manual for you, but there is one thing a chainsaw needs, and that is a lot of common sense. And it seems as if you have that. Always wear good sturdy clothing, with no loose pieces to flap around, as they could get caught. Keep kids MILES away, and keep other adults safely away. Do not force the saw through the timber, but let it set its own pace. Keep pressing the oil button to keep the chain and bar oiled. As soon as the oil runs out STOP THE MOTOR and refill the oil. Do not cut any twigs on the ground that you are holding with your foot, or you might be limping home on one foot. Oh yes, always wear safety ear muffs, unless you want to join me wearing two hearing aids. Just use basic good sense with it, and a hell of a lot of care, and you should be right..

I have a newer model Husquarna chainsaw. When I give it extra gas it stalls in the sweet spot. If I give it max gas it cuts off. When I try to saw it wants to cut off also. I changed the gas and tried that...

You need to set the mixtures for the carburetor. You will find a Low and High adjustment screw. At idle turn the screw in or clockwise until the rps starts to decrease. Then start turning it out till you hit max idle rpms. Turn screw back in a quarter to half turn and it should be idling smoothly. Be careful here and get someone to hold saw if necessary but hold in throttle to full speed and do the same with high adjustment screw. turn it in till rpm starts to drop then back it out until you get to max rpm and it won't go any higher then turn it back in a half a turn. If you have to change the high rpm jet a lot you might have to go back and readjust the low rpm jet again and set the idle speed. Never idle it high enough that the chain turns while at idle.

We used to have to do this a lot in timber business. You go up on the mountain to cut logs and the altitude has high enough that you had to adjust carburetor and then do it again when you got back to the sawmill.

Need true chain/bar size for my husqvarna Model 254 chainsaw

Maximum bar size of 20" but would recommend 18", if it is running sluggish, check compression, if low replace the piston, if it is 135psi or more then make sure the airfilter is clean and then tune the carb and make sure you get good revs and throttle response throughout the rev range, use the typical carb adjustments from the owners manual from the Husky web site. This is a 5hp saw and is capable of cutting some big lumps of hardwood so no excuses on the power front
