Question about Garden
If the chain is quite dull, the increased force required to make a cut will overheat the chain causing it to stretch. So will reduced lubrication to the bar and chain. Run the saw at speed with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. If it seems to be stingy with the oil, remove the bar and chain (release the chain brake first) and run the engine for a bit to see if the side port in the engine oozes oil out. If ok, clean the two small oil passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. When re-assembling, adjust the chain just up to the bar, but not so tight that you can't turn it by hand. Hope this helps!
