You should refer to your user manual. However, the procedure is not that hard.

  • Loosen the two bolts that hold the chain bar to the body of the chainsaw
  • Push the Bar backward until there is enough play to put the chain back on the track: clean off any dirt/debris and carefully examine your chain (such as damaged or bend teeths) and bar (such as nicks/cracks) for any physical damages and replace/recondition as appropriate.
  • Retension the chain by moving the bar until the chain is tight (but not too tight!): you should just be able to very sligthly lift the chain up (but NOT OFF) from the chain bar.
  • When you obtain the 'correct' tension, make sure the two bars bolts are firmly and securely tighten!
  • With motor off, safety guard off, check that the chain can rotate easily but firmly.
Chainsaws are lethal tools: do the above at your own risk and do not undertake this task unless you are a confident handyman!

Hope the informaion is useful!

How can I use a gas pole saw?


Congratulations on getting you a new gas pole saw! A gas pole saw is undoubtedly the most powerful of pole saw types. It uses gas for operation, heavy-duty bars, and chains and is effective for a longer working period. Since it is the most powerful; you can put your faith for pruning heavier and larger branches and trees.
So, you have chosen rightly. But, it is a matter of concern, if you do not know how to use a gas pole saw. Let us help you with this matter.
BEFORE YOU START
  • Make sure that the pole saw is safe and prepared to be used. The faulty ones can lead to a serious accident.
  • Clear the area where you would use your pole saw and where the limbs would fall. Any hazard should be cleared at once.
  • Be aware of the weather because the windy or rainy weather can turn your pruning into a dreadful experience.
  • Cut only one limb at a time
  • Avoid cutting branches that are thicker than 8 inches. Take expert's help in this matter.
  • Be aware of the kickbacks.
  • Always maintain the right balance and base. Hold the saw firmly and stay at your place rigidly.
These instructions should be taken into account before the start of trimming. After you follow the instructions given above, it is time to move towards pruning process. The steps below lay out how to use a gas pole saw.
STEP 1 As you hold the grip of your pole saw and make a balance of your position, make few jump cuts underneath the branch you want to cut off. Jump cuts are a necessary technique which is used before the final cut. It reduces the weight of the branch that makes the final cut easier. It can be physically challenging to cut from underneath. So, always pick a pole saw equivalent to your weight bearing capability.
STEP 2 Extend the height of the pole saw based on the height of the branch. Hold the pole saw vertically, take it up to the branches away from the ground and never forget to hold it properly. Adjust its position and let it rest on the branches. In the meantime, you can ensure your position too. Always keep the pole saw at your chest level.
STEP 3 Now, begin to cut perpendicular to the limb and try to make deep cuts as much as you can. Deep cuts will let you make the final cut and other cuts easier. It will also allow you to make faster cutting strokes. Readjust your position, and the pole saw if you face any trouble.
STEP 4 The last step is all about your safety. Check where the limbs are falling and move from that place as early as possible.
Do not lose hope if you fail the first time. Keep trying until you reach your full potential. Clean the work area after trimming is done. So, this is how you can use a gas pole saw. Keep pruning and stay safe!

When I push the button and start cutting, why does the chain kick off?


Review the new chain installation procedure to be sure it was looped over the drive gear correctly. Also, the bar may have readjusted itself after you applied tension and tightened the hardware.

Electric chain saw pole wouldn't cut branches


Check to make sure the blade is not installed backwards. It's an easy mistake to make, everything will work OK, but the saw won't cut if the blade is on backwards.

What are the steps to getting the chain saw started and idling? What are next steps to cut tree limbs and oil the chain? This chain saw was given to me without a manual.


If you are a complete novice you should seek some training before attempting to use the machine, as you do not say what model this is we will go through basic starting procedures, fill the fuel tank with fresh fuel mixed with two stroke oil at 25-1, fill the chain oil tank with a non fling chain oil, switch the ignition switch to on, pull the choke fully out, push in the deco valve if fitted, place the machine on the ground, with the tip of the bar away from any obstructions, put your right foot through the back handle to hold the saw down, place your straightened left arm and hand onto the top handle again to hold the machine, now with your right hand crank the engine until it fires once, at this point push the choke fully back in, crank the engine once again until it fires up, flick the trigger to dissengage the part throttle , the machine should now idle.
Be carefull.

THE CHAIN SAW RUNS. THE CHAIN XS NEW. IT DOESN'T CUT THE SMALLEST OF BRANCHES


I don't mean to sound offensive, but is the chain on the right way? I've put 'em on backwards, even started the saw before I noticed. And is the chain running when the motor runs?

If the chain is right then you may have gotten a chain with a bad grind. Never heard of it but it could sure happen. Get back with me if the chain is right and it's turning- we'll get it to cut.

My chain saw (14 inch gas powered) would not


Modern chainsaws have the ability to run without turning the chain via the chain-brake. To set the brake the uppermost handle is pushed forward (toward the chain) and a firm snap should be heard and felt. To release the brake you pull the same handle back (towards the engine) and get the same "snap".
Concerning oil leakage: Bar/chain lube collects on the inside of the clutch cover and the sawdust mixes with it as you saw. A surprising amount of oil gets absorbed in the sawdust and later seeps back out when the saw is at rest. If the level of oil in the tank noticably drops after sitting overnight you may have a leak...otherwise it's normal.
As for a running chain that wont cut, it is common for chains to be installed backward and the unit still function perfectly (it just won't cut wood). See the proper chain orientation here. In this photo the chain travel is from left to right.
