Poulan chainsaws can make short work of stubborn trees or overgrown hedges and help keep yards neat and tidy when properly maintained. However, over time the chain can become less effective due to dullness or mechanical issues. When part of a regular care routine, these tips can help keep your chainsaw working well.
Before looking into chainsaw repair parts for a dull blade, try a quick or full sharpening to fix the issue. Brief sharpening throughout use keeps the chain working consistently throughout the day. Use a file and examine the chain for any dull teeth, then file them back into the correct shape. A full sharpening should happen after each day of use, and a professional sharpening session is useful after numerous do-it-yourself ones.
Chains loosen during use, so regularly stop and check the tension. Check your owner's manual to see how to adjust the tension on your particular model. Chains should not sag noticeably away from the rest of the tool, but you should also be able to pull the chain slightly away from the guide bar.
Chains require their own oil separate from that in the fuel tank. For this chainsaw repair help tip, consult your owner's manual to see if your tool automatically oils or requires manual oiling. If the chain is smoking or getting caught, this can help smooth things out, giving you a more reliable tool.
