If you are talking about the clamp there are 2 roll pins that need to be removed. The shoe has screws that hold it into place. I would suggest going to Dewaltservicenet.com and typing in your model number under looking for manual and you will need the type number to look at a breakdown for this tool and you will see what I mean. Let me know if you need more help

How do i change blade on dewalt dw303 reciprocating saw


Open the yellow tab on the side of the blade guard and lift the blade out. Install a new on and close the tab. If the blade has been damaged, it may need to be pried off the locating pin at the attachment point.

Sometimes if you take the set screw completely out and then use a flat blade small screw driver to wege open the throat you can use a dental pick to get it out. Spray it first with wd40.

Hope you weren't using those cheap blades from harbor freight - that is how I learned that trick - bought the dental picks from harbor freight.

Excessive oil from the chain oiler. oil resevoir is empty and fuel is still 3/4 full. Saw is two weeks old. Oil sprays off the bar.


What kind of oil did you put in there?? The bar and chain oil is so thick, i can't see it slinging anywhere, you must have used 2 stroke in there. It's OK, That is all I use in my Husky, but it doesn't sling off. I don't know if you have a part missing or what, but there is a little damper right under the chain guard. Check it out, hope this helps.

I bought a used McCulloch 4016. The engine can rev up nicely, but it cannot cut through 2 inch piece of wood. It does not stall, the chain just stops moving, and the engine seems to slow down as if it...


A dull chain can certainly cause loss of cutting ability and generate a lot of heat in the chain. The clutch may be full of chain oil and is slipping. Remove the bar and chain, then wash out the clutch internals with spray carburetor cleaner and let dry out. Clean the oil passages in the drive end of the bar including the two small passages that go out from the large holes to the chain groove an each side. Clean the entire chain groove. Start the engine with the bar and chain off of the saw--you should see oil ooze out of the small port in the engine case where the bar fits to. Reassemble the bar and chain after everything is cleaned--tighten the chain until the lower run just pulls up to the bar, but you can still run the chain by hand. Make sure the chain teeth are properly file sharpened and the teeth cut toward you on the bottom run. When running, the engine should 4-stroke at speed unloaded, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Hold the bar tip near some cardboard while running the engine at speed for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil on to the cardboard. Hope this helps!

My Stihl 028WB chainsaw will start and run a little, will cut for a short time but then the chain slows down and no matter if I hold the throttle wide open it will not cut fast and basically won't cut. The...


Check the engine running (it should 4-stroke at speed when not cutting, but will immediately 2-stroke when cutting) after removing the bar and chain. If the engine seems ok now, check that oil is oozing out of the engine side port. If ok, clean the oil ports at the drive end of the bar including the two small ports that go out to the chain groove on each side, then clean the entire chain groove. Oil the end sprocket (if it exists) and check it's turning. Reinstall the bar and chain, and adjust the chain until it just stops drooping from the lower bar, but not so tight that it can't be turned by hand. If no oil came out of the engine port in the first test, then troubleshoot the oil pumping system from the oil tank filter to the oil pump itself. The chain should cut at any running speed, just not as fast. Make sure that it is properly sharpened. Clean the air cleaner and the muffler if either is plugged. If you have further problems, suggest taking the machine to a Stihl repair center for carburetor service if needed. Hope this helps!

Can not replace blade on Dewalt 303 6.5amp


Hi,
Getting a broken blade our of the sawzall chuck can be difficult and require some ingenuity and patience...
Sometimes there be enough blade left so that you can grab it with a needle nose pliers... othertimes it is flush and that makes it more difficult... holding the chuck in the release position and rapping the saw against a table or with a hammer can jiggle the piece out....of course you have the chuck pointed down while you do that...
Also moving the piece around a bit with a stiff wire and also soaking the chuck and blade with WD-40 helps also....
Usually it will take a combination of these things and some persistance to get the job done...

Chain loose


Hi there,

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.

Best regards
Mike

How do I open it to clean the blades?


Hello,
The fan guard will split into two pieces... At the center or the large diameter of the guard there are small tabs on the inside that hold the two pieces together. To reach them and release them you will need a small long screw driver or other pointy object. Carefully one by one release the tabs to split the front part of the guard off.

How do I tighten chain on Model Poulan 2050. Can't seem to get tight enough.


Hold the nose up!
c581361.gif Chain Adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH
