The chain may need proper sharpening--it should not have to be forced to cut quickly. Make sure the bar and chain are being oiled enough. If the engine speed does not decline much, but the chain speed slows down, the clutch assembly may be full of oil (remove the cover and wash out the clutch with spray carburetor cleaner). Make sure the chain is properly tensioned--it should be tight to the bar, but able to be moved fairly easily by hand. Check the fuel filter and air cleaner for plugging. Make sure the fuel lines are in good condition. Hope some of this helps!

My poulan 4018wt has been a hard starter from new. It started to act up out of the blue and started shutting off halfway into the cut and didn't always want to idle right. So I changed the spark plug,


I'd say the most probable culprit is the fuel.... I'd first try dumping the tank out, mixing fresh gas with the addition of a fuel stabilizer and start the saw. It'll quickly vent any old gas in the line and should begin to run fine with the new mix. If not, consider returning it to the service center for adjustment.

Never use gas that has sit on a shelf for months at a time as it becomes 'stale' (for lack of a proper term). Todays 'formulated fuel' can be a cause a bit of a problem for some small engines. Anytime you refuel, shake the can to remix prior to filling.

The oxygenated nature of the blended gas sometimes causes the chain saws to run a little 'lean'...meaning too much air to fuel ratio which could be a portion of your problem. A lean running saw will run hot and scoring of the piston or cylinder wall is possible. Some finely tuned professional saws need carb adjustments between the summer blend and the winter blend gas.

I've added the breakdown manual for you, have you replaced the fuel and air filters. could be a simple issue of not being able to draw up the fuel from the tank. Stone saws deal with a lot of dust and this seriously effects their running and also their cooling capabilities.

Saw will not cut curves


Tighter curves have to be cut by cutting tangentally; that is, when the blade will not follow the line any further, you cut away from the material line that you are trying to follow, and begin again by bringing the material back to the blade.
Best regards,

Chain saw cuts great at start, not so good about 1/2 way


All things are possible but it isn't likely the bar is bent. Are you getting fairly large chips or sawdust? Try raising the rear of the saw a little when she quits cutting. so you have a small contact area instead of a wide flat cut. Run a flat file at an angle along both edges of the bar to remove any wire edge. Let me know what you find you have piqued my curiosity. Lou

Circular saw engine question


it's important to choose a tool with a motor that is powerful enough to meet your needs. For example, a woodworker should choose a saw with enough power to cut through everything from wet lumber to dense hardwood. If the motor in the saw you select doesn't have enough power, the blade heats up and begins to dull. In addition to creating poor quality cuts, this can become a safety hazard if the blade starts to climb out and push the saw back towards the user. However, evaluating power from the motor ratings can be misleading. Amps indicate only the amount of electricity a motor draws, not the power it sends to the blade. Horsepower accounts for torque (rotational force), but not necessarily under working conditions. So be careful and ask the seller if this particular tool suits the work you want to be done.
