4. For safe operation
1. Never operate a chain saw when you are
fatigued, ill, or upset, or under the
influence of medication that may make
you drowsy, or if you are under the
influence of alcohol or drugs.
2. Use safety footwear, snug fitting clothing
and eye, hearing and head protection
devices.
3. Always use caution when handling fuel.
Wipe up all spills and then move the
chain saw at least 3m from the fueling
point before starting the engine.
3a) Eliminate all sources of sparks or
flame (ie. smoking, open flames, or
work that can cause sparks) in the
areas where fuel is mixed, poured, or
stored.
3b) Do not smoke while handling fuel or
while operating the chain saw.
4. Do not allow other persons to be near
the chain saw when starting the engine
or cutting a wood. Keep bystanders and
animals out of the work area. Children,
pets, and bystanders should be a
minimum of 10m away when you start or
operate the chain saw.
5. Never start cutting until you have a clear
work area, secure footing, and planned
retreat path from the falling tree.
6. Always hold the chain saw firmly with
both hands when the engine is running.
Use a firm grip with thumb and fingers
encircling the chain saw handles.
7. Keep all parts of your body away from
the saw chain when the engine is
running.
8. Before you start the engine, make sure
the saw chain is not contacting anything.
9. Always carry the chain saw with the
engine stopped, the guide bar and saw
chain to the rear, and the muffler away
from your body.
10. Always inspect the chain saw before
each use for worn, Ioose, or changed
parts. Never operate a chain saw that is
damaged, improperly adjusted, or is not
completely and securely assembled. Be
sure that the saw chain stops moving
when the throttle control trigger is
released.
11. All chain saw service, other than the
items listed in the Operator’s Manual,
should be performed by competent chain
saw service personnel. (e.g., if improper
tools are used to remove the flywheel, or
if an improper tool is used to hold the
flywheel in order to remove the clutch,
structural damage to the flywheel could
occur which could subsequently cause
the flywheel to disintegrate).
12. Always shut off the engine before setting
it down.
13. Use extreme caution when cutting small
size brush and saplings because slender
material may catch the saw chain and be
whipped toward you or pull you off
balance.
14. When cutting a limb that is under
tension, be alert for spring back so that
you will not be struck when the tension in
the wood fibers is released.
15. Keep the handles dry, clean and free of
oil or fuel mixture.
5 
4. For safe operation
16. Operate the chain saw only in well
ventilated areas. Never start or run the
engine inside a closed room or building.
Exhaust fumes contain dangerous
carbon monoxide.
19. When transporting your chain saw, make
sure the appropriate guide bar scabbard
is in place.
17. Do not operate a chain saw in a tree
unless specially trained to do so.
18. Guard against kickback. Kickback is the
upward motion of the guide bar which
occurs when the saw chain at the nose
of the guide bar contacts an object.
Kickback can lead to dangerous loss of
control of the chain saw.
KICKBACK SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR
CHAIN SAW USERS
WARNING
● Kickback may occur when the nose or tip of the guide bar touches an object, or when the
wood closes in and pinches the saw chain in the cut. Tip contact in some cases may
cause a lightning fast reverse reaction, kicking the guide bar up and back towards the
operator. Pinching the saw chain along the top of the guide bar may push the guide bar
rapidly back towards the operator. Either of these reactions may cause you to lose
control of the saw which could result in serious personal injury.
● Do not rely exclusively on the safety devices built into your saw. As a chain saw user you
should take several steps to keep cutting jobs free from accident or injury.
(1) With a basic understanding of kickback you can reduce or eliminate the element of
surprise. Sudden surprise contributes to accidents.
(2) Keep a good grip on the saw with both hands, the right hand on the rear handle, and
the left hand on the front handle, when the engine is running. Use a firm grip with
thumbs and fingers encircling the chain saw handles. A firm grip will help you reduce
kickback and maintain control of the saw. Don’t let go.
(3) Make certain that the area in which you’re cutting is free from obstructions. Do not let
the nose of the guide bar contact a log, branch, or any other obstruction which could
be hit while you are operating the saw.
(4) Cut at high engine speeds.
(5) Do not overreach or cut above shoulder height.
(6) Follow manufacturers sharpening and maintenance instructions for saw chain.
(7) Only use replacement bars and chains specified by the manufacturer or the
equivalent.

hook completely at the rear end of the cover. (SE3)
SE4
SE5
4. While holding up the tip of the bar, adjust the
chain tension by turning the tensioner screw until
the tie straps just touch the bottom side of the
bar rail. (SE4)
5. Keep holding the guide bar up, tighten the
mounting nut firmly with the attached socket
wrench. (SE5)
6. Rotate the saw chain by hand, wearing a
protective glove, to see if it turns smoothly
without noticeable gap between the tie straps
and the guide bar.
NOTE
A new chain will expand its length in the beginning
of use. Check and readjust the tension frequently
as a loose chain can easily derail or cause rapid
wear of itself and the guide bar.

6. Fuel and chain oil
WARNING
• Gasoline is very flammable. Avoid
smoking or bringing any flame or
sparks near fuel. Make sure to stop the
engine and allow it cool before
refueling the unit. Select outdoor bare
ground for fueling and move at least
3m (10ft) away from the fueling point
before starting the engine.
• The ZENOAH engines are lubricated by
oil specially formulated for air-cooled 2cycle gasoline engine use. If ZENOAH oil
is not available, use an anti-oxidant added
quality oil expressly labeled for air-cooled

• Exhaust emission are controlled by the
fundamental engine parameters and
components (eq., carburation, ignition
timing and port timing) without
addition of any major hardware or the
introduction of an inert material during
combustion.
• These engines are certified to operate on
unleaded gasoline.
• Make sure to use gasoline with a
minimum octane number of 89 RON
(USA/Canada: 87AL)
• If you use a gasoline of a lower octane
value than prescribed, there is a danger
that the engine temperature may rise and
an engine problem such as piston seizing
may consequently occur.
• Unleaded gasoline is recommended to
reduce the contamination of the air for the
sake of your health and the environment.
• Poor quality gasolines or oils may damage
sealing rings, fuel lines or fuel tank of the
engine.
■ HOW TO MIX FUEL
IMPORTANT
Pay attention to agitation.
1. Measure out the quantities of gasoline
and oil to be mixed.
2. Put some of the gasoline into a clean,
approved fuel container.
3. Pour in all of the oil and agitate well.
4. Pour In the rest of gasoline and agitate
8 
6. Fuel and chain oil
again for at least one minute. As some
oils may be difficult to agitate depending
on oil ingredients, sufficient agitation is
necessary for the engine to last long. Be
careful that, if the agitation is insufficient,
there is an increased danger of early
piston seizing due to abnormally lean
mixture.
5. Put a clear indication on the outside of the
container to avoid mixing up with gasoline
or other containers.
6. Indicate the contents on outside of
container for easy identification.
■ FUELING THE UNIT
1. Untwist and remove the fuel cap. Rest the
cap on a dustless place.
2. Put fuel into the fuel tank to 80% of the full
capacity.
3. Fasten the fuel cap securely and wipe up
any fuel spillage around the unit.
