Before Starting Work | Chain Saws

Check controls, chain tension, and all bolts and handles to ensure they are functioning properly and adjusted according to the manufacturer's instructions. With correct chain tension, you get good cutting action and a long chain life. If too loose, a chain will derail; if too tight, a chain will bind. Proper lubrication prolongs the life of the saw and increases safety. Never smoke when you are fueling or using a chain saw. Never drop-start the saw. To start the saw, always brace the saw by placing it on the ground and putting one foot on the bracket to the rear of the saw. Grip the top handle of the saw firmly with one hand and use the other to pull the starting rope.

•Check controls, chain tension, bolts, and handles.
•Adjust according to manufacturer’s instructions.
•Fuel at least 10 ft. from ignition sources.
•Start at least 10 ft. away from fuel.
Start with chain brake on and on the ground or firmly supported.
