by Agency VAC Shop Equipment Store
Owning a chainsaw at home is useful, since you can easily use it to cut numerous things effortlessly. However, it's not sufficient to purchase a chainsaw, you should also be able to take good care of it and properly maintain it so that it will last you a long time. 


To operate a chain saw safely and effectively you must commit to maintain it. It is always better to keep your chain saw in a tip-top shape, so it works properly and does not cause you any injuries. Follow these guidelines:

  • First, you should go through the owner’s manual thoroughly; so that you can establish the right maintenance routine. 
  • The major problem that is caused with the chainsaw is due to the chain becoming either dull or improperly tensioned. If you think that your chain saw is laboring you, it is better to go for chain replacement.
  • The chain should be clean and lubricated. Prior to every use you need to ensure that the oil reservoir is full. In case, there is accumulation of wood chips and sawdust, stop and clean the chain before continuing.
  • Before each use, it is better to check and tighten all screws, bolts, and nuts. These parts of chainsaw may loosen up once the tool is in the vibration mode.
  • You should properly inspect the chain brake mechanism for tightness so as to protect yourself from any kickback during operation.
  • If the air filter becomes clogged it is better to clean or replace it to free dirt and debris.
  • To power the engine, you should use proper blend of oil and gas (unless it’s electric). While fueling, you need to be sure that the fuel filler cap is fit and is not cracked.
  • The fuel filter and spark plugs should be regularly cleaned or replaced. In case, it’s small engine is running roughly or misfiring then you should clean and adjust the carburetor.
  • If it is completely worn out, then you should just replace the hoses with a pull-start rope.
  • You just have to remove the clutch cover and clean the chain brake band.
  • Check the idle speed of the chain saw and if necessary, make an adjustment so that the chain does not move. If you notice that it moves, turn down the idle speed so that the chain remains stationary.

If you run into troubles with your chainsaw’s operation, you should absolutely seek small engine repair in Aurora and Denver before using it in any significant capacity. A chainsaw isn’t something that can be used with a faulty motor or chain as it is going to increase the chance of harm or injury.
