Saw starts, but has no power.

Tatarian Maple leaves growing out of trunk, should I remove those branches or buches clear from the ground up as that is how they are growing?


G'day Patti, unless you want to look beyond the tree it would be advisable to leave the lower leaves and branches. The lower branches hide little critters from big critters. Cheers Greg.

You have gumosis. Trim off infected area with a saw blade sprayed with a 2% bleach solution. Look up proper pruning practices prior to pruning.

Tried chain saw. Working on limbs about 12 ft above ground.
First limb about 3 inches diameter, Oak. Worked fine.
Second limb same size. Cutter slip off branch could not stop the saw from hitting ground. Broke case where it attaches to pole.
No parts, and no way to repair it as company had no idea what kind of cement/glue I could use. So one branch cost me $120.00.

Like Robert my saw hit the ground and busted in the same spot (this will happen to you sooner or later) and you can not get repair parts, its now a door stop.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Can Not Get Repair Parts
I am guessing you mean the entire cutting end of the saw too, I would get a new one either same model so you have a spare pole or find a another brand that definatly sells spare parts.
Ive never used a electric polesaw but have done alot of work with with longer petrol and shorter hydrolic polesaws, even top of the range they can be broken easily always keep the chain sharp, cut one branch at a time or small clumps on a hedge.
Commonly they get dropped cause they get really heavy extended a shoulder belt helps alot as do coffee breaks.
Or they get jammed in the branch being cut which can be really dangerous with a half cut branch, be ready to run.
Also never use from a ladder

This saw does not have the power that I was used to. However, I used my big Stihl to cut down the trees and switched saws to do the trim work. I had no problem starting or restarting the saw. It was easy to pull and started quickly. The chain did need to be tightened several times but that is normal with a new saw and chain. Other then being a little under powered, I found this saw to be light, easy to handle and overall a good saw."

I am going through my husbands tools. We have a Ryobi Saw-all and I notice it has different blades. I can not find the manual. I simply want to change the blade for cutting iron that is currently inserted...


To change blades, a hex-wrench is required and you simply tighten or loosen the allen screw that holds the blade, but unfortunately the saw's design is a bit flawed. It takes a bit of "feeling around" to locate the proper position for the blade changing wrench because the fitting is not visible through the rubberized boot. You can certainly trim and prune trees with the saw, but make sure that the branch is at least 10% thinner than the length of the blade. I do not know your Manzanita tree, but if the wood is wet it should present no problem. Any power saw is extremely dangerous if used at an elevated height like on a ladder. If the ladder slips, there seems to be an almost unnatural tendency to grab for the saw and very often the moving blade. Take the utmost care at all times with power tools. (I have a friend who point blank refuses to use a chain saw unless both his feet are firmly planted on the ground, and he is over 6 foot).

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

After sharppening saw, as you cut the tree, it binds,and seems not to cut the saw line wide enough for the blade to pass thru the tree,chain turns good,


Thank you for the reply.
Rakers low;
If the rakers are to low it may be trying to take to large a bite. I think this one.
If rakers high:
Remove the chain saw and drag a hand saw through the cut to remove anything loose and retry. Any better? I could be wrong but do not think raker to high.
How big are the chips? Look at how thick compare to chips prior to sharpening.
as a last resort;
Please try a different chain and let me know if that is problem.
I am going to close this but PROMISE I will stay with you.
I need to know what the cause is.
