Chainsaws have a lot of moving parts in a very small area. If any of them don’t function properly, it could render your entire chainsaw inoperable.
Inside the engine housing, the chain is spun along the guide bar at incredibly high speeds. Some powerful chainsaws can reach speeds of 3,000 rpm. When you factor in the speed, high engine temperatures and wood pulp getting under the cover, it’s easy to see how your chainsaw's functionality could be compromised.
Before each use, you’ll want to check a few parts of your chainsaw to ensure it’s ready for cutting. Make sure that the guide bar is firmly in place and that the chain is at the proper tension. A loose guide bar will not safely handle the chain speed. Also, use the fuel mixture ratio that the manufacturer recommends so that the engine will run as efficiently as possible. With regular maintenance, a chainsaw can be expected to work reliably for several decades.
Once you know the model number of your chainsaw, you can easily find the replacement parts you need by using the search toolbar. If you don’t have that information, you can also browse different brands to find the parts you’re looking for.
