If this is a sudden occurrence I think there is an air leak and the saw is running lean. Continued operation while lean or tweaking the needle valve to compensate may destroy your saw.



If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Does the engine have fresh fuel mix? The idle speed screw may need to be adjusted CCW somewhat until the chain ceases to move at idle. Have the H and L jet screws been adjusted? If so, turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then both turned CCW 1-1/2 turns each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Open the throttle and turn H CW until the engine speeds up, yet continues to 4-stroke. Proper setting is when the engine 4-strokes, yet immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Let idle, and adjust L until the engine runs fairly smoothly, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Hope this helps!

Rev out of control


Check to see if it has a Throttle positioning sensor. A faulty one will cause the engine not to run properly. It will do like you described with the engine revving and then wanting to cut out.

What is Quarter-Sawn Lumber?


Quarter-sawing is a method of milling trees into lumber. Quarter-sawn lumber is highly sought after, particularly in certain species such as oak or maple, where look of the grain in the wood is accentuated by the method of cutting the tree. While rip-sawing is the most efficient (and common) method of milling, quarter-sawing is more difficult to cut but yields much more stable lumber. Because it is more difficult to cut and there is more waste, quarter-sawn lumber is considerably more expensive than rip-sawn material.

The saw blade does not engage when trying to cut


Probably shot. You could buy parts, but now worth the time. Probably stripped the gears.

When i try to do a horizontal cut my saw seems to bite in for a start, but then just runs free in the tree not taking a bite or drawing the saw in, this has also happened with 45% cuts, is this my own...


Sawing with a chainsaw is mostly 2 part, a sharp chain and good technique.

If your bar is straight, your chain is razor sharp and the oil reservoir full then it boils down to technique.

You cannot run a chainsaw through horizontally on a big tree, what will happen is half the time the tree's weight will begin to collapse upon the bar and pinch it in the tree and you will not be able to saw any further.

You will notice that when felling a tree the vertical cuts are always problem free because gravity pulls the off-cut away from the saw. With horizontal cuts fire your blade in at an angle, and in cut in the direction the tree (or whatever) is likly to fall. As you cut rock your blade to help it bite into the wood and resist jamming. If your chain jams do not keep on the gas for you will burn out the clutch.

For an awkard cut instead of feeding it right through cut towards the middle to create a notch, then cut from the other side, the weight of the tree will fall on the cut portion leaving your blade free to slice through.

Just think logically and make sure that the blade can feed through without getting pinched, this is well represented if you get a log and support both sides then cut vertically in the centre; it will get pinched imeediatly. Now cut from the underside and it will fly right through.

This is difficult to describe but plan your cuts and test it out.

Cheers,

Kevin

Idle is off??


hi leobowdy

disassembly the carb and carefully clean it.Check the air filter,the fuel line and fuel filter,check the needle,lever,small spring and the screen filter from the carb.Check the sparkplug.
high speed H=2 turns,low speed L=2 1/2 turns,adjust T
When chain saw starts adjust H,L and T accordingly.
