Use maintain chainsaw

if your question is "best way to care and use a chainsaw"

care: well that's slightly different for a gas model vs an electric model
gas models should not be stored for longer than a week with fuel in it's system (tank,lines,carb) as the gas will evaporate and cause deposits to form (hard) and clogg up the small ports in there
electric models, should be inspected for cuts to cord and general safety ck over saw to make sure it's not going to shock you

just because they show it on tv , chain saws are not for cutting in water or around water , one its not good for the metals the saw is made from and two if water gets inside the motor (gas or electric) its no longer going to run anymore

always keep your chain oiler full of bar oil (not motor oil) and top off every 30 min of use

and sharp chains cut cooler and longer than dull chains , lot less effort too

What type of bar chain oil should I use

For spring/summer use, you can use Motomaster ("spring/summer") or Stihl "medium" chain oil. If you use in very cold winter condition, you need thinner oil, specifically made for it.

I have a 1600w electric black & decker chainsaw recently purchased that simply takes forever to cut the smallest of logs. Is this the norm?

Hi there Bugs,

Definitely not the norm. I'm guessing that although it was recently purchased, it was used?

It will either need a new chain or have the old one professionally sharpened. You didn't mention bar size, but a new chain should be between $18-30.00.

A less expensive alternative would be a small engine repair shop that services chainsaws. Most also have reconditioned chains for sale.

Eight days ago I picked up a 19" bar banana bar and used chain for $15.00 total to finish some oak. It Rocks.

Try the chain change. Difference? Night and Day.

Best regards

How do you adjust the tension in the black and decker 16 inch electric chain saw. The chain is too loose...

UNPLUG THE CHAINSAW. if it's got a bolt or two on the right hand side loosen them, then turn the adjuster screw next to the bar until you have about 1/4 inch slack in the chain. tighten nut/nuts. if it's got tool-less adjustment loosen the cover bolt, turn the tensioner, tighten the cover bolt.
