Question about Black & Decker CCS818 Chain Saw

1 Answer

Although battery is charged the chainsaw seems to have no torque to cut anything. Just had a new motor as last one burnt out. Any ideas? Could the batteries be poor although they are ok with hammer drill.

You need to check the voltage at the motor connections when running. Make sure the chain is not overly tight--you should be able to move it by hand, and that it is well oiled at all times. The battery seems to be ok if it runs a companion tool. Make sure the chain is properly sharpened. Hope this helps!

Mt999 chainsaw. Brand new. Not cutting through wood although blade rotating. Just seems to be burning wood.

If it's all brand new, then sounds like you have the chain on backwards. The angled parts of the cutters should face forward while on the top of the bar.

Bosch ake 40 will not cut properly

I do not mean this as an insult but since I have seen it before I have to ask if you put the chain on backwards?

Other then that I know that if you hit dirt, even with a new chain, it will dull it quicker then anything else.
