Yes, but you lefties especially may want to handle one before buying since they're basically all made for right-handed people.

Locked


Sounds like the chain brake is locked. On the front of the saw, in front of where you would put your left hand on the handle is another piece. Its probably plastic. With the saw off, take your hand, place your thumb on the front handle, your 4 fingers on top of the paddle & pull the paddle back toward the front handle until it clicks, thus releasing the chain brake & freeing the chain.

If the saw is fitted with a decompression switch you need to decompress the cylinder after every pull to make it easier to start. If it doesn't have a decompression switch you need to put the saw on the ground and put your right foot firmly into the handle opening, place your left hand on the top hand bar, grip the pull handle and pull out slowly until you feel a solid wall or compression and then pull straight up fast and hard for about 8 - 10". Make sure the brake is on when starting. I have an older Husky saw and this is how I start it. It has a short pull cycle so don't try to give it a long pull like a weed whipper!

How to start poulan 18 inch wildthing chainsaw


Hello Wade,
There should be starting instructions on back on saw, if not its usually the same for most saws. Fill tank with proper mixed fuel. Add bar and chain oil if necessary. Pull knob out to "start" position. Pull choke all the way out. Prime unit 6 times. Place saw firmly on floor, slide right foot under handle and have left hand firmly on top handle. Pull throttle and lock it in high. Pull rope 4 to 5 times until unit pops.Then, set chock lever on half.(this is usually pushing in half way). Pull rope again 4 to 5 times until unit starts, then after 30 seconds or so push choke knob in to turn choke off. If this procedure doesn't work, give it 10 minutes or so, because unit may be flooded, then try again. Good luck!

I can't get the case back on the chain saw after chaning the blade the brake is to compressed how do i fix it?


There are a number of ways to do this, the easiest way is to remove the clutch and sprocket, the cover will then fit back on and you can use the handle on the saw to load it. the clutch is just spun onto the crank with a left hand thread, it can be jarred off against the compression of the saw.

I have been trying to turn on my chain saw. Ive pulled the handle back by the trigger gave a few pull on the rope. then i pushed the button in on the side also the push the button back in by the trigger...


The chainbrake should be activated when starting the chain saw. Activate the chain brakeby pushing the front hand guard forwards.b>Cold engine Start position, 1: Set the start/stop switch in the choke position by pulling thered control outward - upward.Decompression valve: Press the valve to reduce the pressure in the cylinder and makestarting easier. Once the machine has started the valve will automaticallyreturn to its original setting.Air purge: Press the air purge diaphragm repeatedly until fuel fills thediaphragm (at least 6 times). The diaphragm need not be completely filled.Grip the front handle with yourleft hand. Hold the chain saw on the ground by placing your right foot throughthe rear handle.Pull the starter handle, 4: Pull the starter handle with your right hand and pull out thestarter cord slowly until you feel a resistance (as the starter pawls engage)then pull firmly and rapidly until the engine fires.Push down the red choke control: As soon as the engine fires which can be heard through a"puff" sound, push down on the red choke control.Pull the starter handle (6): Keep on pulling the cord powerfully until the engine starts.

I have 2 schlage door handles that are suppose to be able to be used right or left handed. I can't get the handle to turn to the opposite direction. (if it is set to be installed as right handed, I need...


How does the door handle even know if it is in a right or left handled door?
The handle should retract the latch with a quarter turn clockwise OR counterclockwise, so it should make no difference at all.
The only thing that is right or left handed is the direction the latch bevel points, so that it will retract when you push the door shut.
And the latch has nothing to do with the handle.

Are these circular door knobs, or is this a handle that has to then point at the hinges?
Because it seems to me that if the direction the handle points is the problem, you simply put them on the wrong side of the door.

On a 10 inch power compound miter saw, I need to replace the blade. Does the blade bolt have left handed threads? Thanks


Place a finger nail in the thread near the end ot the shaft. If when rotated CW it comes off the shaft it is a left hand thread. My 10" Craftsman radial saw has a left hand thread on the blade shaft.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

What position should the kick back be in when starting?


Your OM (all manufacturers) says to engage the chain brake prior to starting. It is the safest way to start your saw.
I start my saws on the ground (like the OM recommends), right toe in rear handle, wide stance, left hand on front handle with the chain brake disengaged. The saw I used first (Pioneer 1980±) has no chain brake.
I now have a Mac 110 (top handle) that is very awkward to start on the ground. I engage the brake on it before I attempt a start. Whatever method you use Please exercise great caution.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Yes i cracked the oil housing for my poulan pp4218avx 42cc chain saw and I was wondering if they sale a replacement housing to repair the saw.


A Poulan PP4218AVX Gas Saw link follows:
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP4218AVX-Gas-Saw/75.PP4218AVX-Gas-Saw.1.59.1.html
See the "Handle, Chassis and Bar Assembly" print, item 38. Is this what is broken? If yes it is possible to replace it, it is not terribly expensive, it is a great deal of precision work. I hope you already removed the clutch (left handed thread). I would probably keep this for parts and purchase a PP4218AVHD Gas Saw Type 2 as a replacement. HTH
