I have purchased Poulon pro 42cc 18 inch chainsaw. I am extremely satisfied with my chainsaw until now. I have only owned it for about two months. I only used it maybe 10 times for easy tasks. my chainsaw...


The chain needs sharpened or replaced. You can purchase the tools from any hardware store, and sharpen the chain yourself in about 15 minutes. Don't worry, your saw is just fine!

The chain keeps coming loose. I tighten it up and in just a few minutes it's loose again. What am I missing?


Make sure the bar/chain is being properly lubricated by running the tip at speed near some cardboard for a moment or two. It should throw off a thin line of oil. After adjusting the chain, make sure you can turn the chain by hand after tightening the bar clamp fasteners. You can judge whether the chain teeth are properly sharpened by examining the sawdust coming from the cut--if large chips, ok. If a fine dust-like material, the chain teeth need sharpening. Hope this helps!

Why is my poulanpro 20 cutting at angle, what is proper sharpening angle. thanx


The manual should give the proper sharpening angle--the main thing is to make sure that all teeth are sharpened to the same angle. If you remove the bar and chain, look at the outer edges of the chain groove around the whole bar--you may find that the bar metal has worn is such a way that the outer edges are flared out beyond the surface of the bar. This flare tends to grip the cut and cause it veer off to one side. The cure is to file down this flare at about 45 degrees so that nothing projects. Hope this helps!

Chainsaw does not cut straight, veres off at an angle only happened since adjusting the chain ,is there an adjustment for this?


Typically this is a problem with sharpening the chain....if the chain has been sharpened unevenly (different angles on the cutters) it will drift to one side. Also most people tend to be more comfortable sharpening one side than the other and the teeth on that side will get worn faster.
As long as it is that right chain for the saw / bar and it is sharpened evenly it should cut straight.
There is no adjustment per se.
Take care.

Chainsaw isn't cutting straight


The odds of a bent a bar approach winning the lottery, while possible it is not likely! ALL the teeth must be of equal and opposite angles. I think a new or professionally sharpened chain will cut true.
Pretty good quick video. There are many that are not worth watching.

Cuts at an angle


The sharpening of the chain is most probably not to the correct angles and not even in relation to the other teeth.
You need to sharpen the chain so all the teeth are to the same length and angle (sometimes there is a small black mark on each tooth to show you the angle and how far you can sharpen back to) . Mark where the smallest tooth is and the bring the others to the same length. Also check the rakers are at the correct height in relation to the teeth that you have just sharpened (use a depth gauge to help)
It is quite unlikely that the bar is bent but taking it off and laying it on a flat surface should tell you if it is. Check the bar for burrs and file them down if there is any.
If you are not sure about any of this then take it to a chainsaw shop and get them to sharpen the chain and check the bar for you.
Hope this helps

After having my Mc Culloch sharpened


You may have the chain on backward. The teeth on the bottom of the bar have to have the sharp edge coming at you in order to cut anything. Hope this helps you, Jeepfxr

Hi, used a blade sharpener for my a2 horse clipper blades and they are still blunt. Do i sharpen between the teeth


no . The blades are sharpened by grinding away the base of the wear until the edges between the teeth are sharp. It also necessary for the tension between the cutting blades is correct other wise the cutting teeth ride up over the hair and will not cut. Have a person who does sharpening of knives ,scissors and blades sharpen the clippers for you as the machine will get it right.

Machine cuts on a curve, not straight. How fix it ?


When my Pioneer did this after many years of service I found a wire edge had developed. A flat file at 45° to the bar around the perimeter of both sides solved my problem. I still have the bar. it cuts true. HTH

Chain saw cuts at an angle


I have seen this problem of a chain saw cutting at an angle brought up again and again on forums, and result in a variety of answers about sharpening the chain, or replacing the bar and/or chain. In a number of these requests for solutions, none of the advice has solved the problem. I have used chain saws for about 45 years now, and there is a condition that some chains develop with the pitch of the teeth or the guides...or both...that will cause them to cut to the left or right at an angle (usually left). While I have not figured out what causes this, I have solved the problem of correcting it. First, turn the nose of your bar and chain toward you on a bench, look down it like sighting a gun and take a look at each tooth and guide. If the saw is cutting left, the teeth or the guides (or both) on the left (while you are looking down the bar from its tip) will be pitched differently than the teeth and/or guides on the right. The pitch of those teeth or guides (those little ears that stick up about on-fourth inch in front of each tooth) will be: 1) too much in line with each other, or 2) the teeth or guides will be less pitched than the teeth or guides on the right side of the chain. Solution: take a large pair of lineman's pliers or similar pliers and pitch those teeth and guides to match those on the right side of the chain. Also, make sure the curved part of your chain teeth peek out around the outside edge of those guides. If the guides are directly in line with your teeth, they will hinder cutting by the teeth. You can do this with the chain on the saw if you don't have too much slack between the bar and the chain. Last, make sure that the chain guides are not as tall or taller than your teeth. If they are, you will need to file them down a little (with a flat file) until the teeth are slightly longer than the guides. Afterward, make sure the teeth on both sides are equally sharp, and go cut a straight cut! TennesseeBob
