D. AVOID
3. Do not handle or operate a chain saw when you
are fatigued, ill, or upset; or if you havetaken
.i
:alcohol, drugs or medication. You must be in
good physical condition and mentally aiert. Chain
saw work is strenuous. If you have any condition
that might be aggravated by strenuous work,
check with your doctor before operating a chain
saw.
GUARD
AGAINST
KICKBACK
.....
_ .
To avoid Pushback:
,
1. Be extremely aware of situations or obstructions that may cause material to pinch the top of
or otherwise stop the chain.
: 2. Do not cut morethan one log at a time.
3. Do not twist the saw as the bar is withdrawn
_ from an under-cut when bucking.
To avoid Pull-In:
Kickback can lead to dangerous loss of control of
the saw and possiblY cause serious personal injury. Kickback is the upward and backward motion of
the guide bar that occurs when the moving chain contacts an object at the tip of the guide bar.
FORCES
Pushback and Pull-in occur when the chain is
suddenly stopped by being pinched, caught, or
by :contacting a foreign object in thewood. This
results in a reversal of the chain force used to cut
wood and causes the saw to move in the opposite di•rection Of chain rotation, resulting in loss of control
and possible serious personal injury.
4. Do not attempt to use your saw during bad
weather conditions such as strong wind, rain,
snow, etc., or du ring darkness.
5. Plan your sawing operations carefully in advance. DO not start cutting until you have a ctear
' iw0rkarea,
secure footing, and if you are felling
• trees, a planned retreat path.
:
Cw
REACTIVE
•
1. Always begin cutting with the engine at full
throttle and the spike against the wood.
2. Use wedges made of plastic, wood, or light
alloy (never of steel or iron) to hold the cut
open.

F.
MAINTAIN
WORKING
YOUR
SAW SAFELY
1. Do not operate a chain saw that is damaged,
improperly adjusted, or not completely and
securely assembled.
2. Do not operate the saw from a ladder or in a
•tree,
3. Position all parts of your body away to the side
of the saw chain protrudingto the left of cut when
the engine is running.
4. Cut wood Only. Do not use to pry or shove away
limbs, roots or other objects.
5. Make sure the chain will not make contact before starting the engine. Never try to start the
saw when the guide bar is in a Cut or kerr.
6. Use extreme caution when cutting small size
brush and saplings. Slender materialmay catch
the saw chain and be whipped toward you or pull
you off balance.
7. Be alert for springback when cutting a limb that
is under tension so you will not be struck by the
limb or saw when the tension in the wood fibers is
released.
8. Do not put pressure on the saw at the end of
a cut. This could cause you to lose control when
the cut is completed.
9. Stopthe engine before setting the saw down.
H.
ments.
Never modify your saw in any way. Use Only
attachments supplied or specifically recommended by Sears.
CARRY
SAFELY
AND
YOUR
SAW
1. Hand carry the unit with the engine stopped,
the Muffler away from your body, and the Guide
Bar and Chain to the rear cowered preferably with
a scabbard,
2. Before transporting in anyvehicle or storing in
any enclosure, allow your saw to cool completely, cover the bar and chain and properly secure to avoidturnover, fuel spillage or damage.
3. Drain oil and fuel tank before storing for more
than 30 days.
4. Store in a dry area out of the reach of children
and away from where fuel vapors can reach an
open flame from hot water heaters, furnaces, etc.
Exposure to vibrations through prolonged use of chain saws may produce Whitefinger disease (Raynaud's
phenomenon). This phenomenon reduces the hand's ability to feel and regulate temperature, produces
numbness and burning sensations and may cause nerve and circulation damage and tissue necrosis. An
anti-vibration system designed to reduce engine vibration is available on many Sears models and is
recommended for those using chain saws on a regular or sustained basis.
An anti-vibration system does not guarantee the avoidance of Whitefinger disease, Continual and regular
users should monitor closely their use of chain saws and physical condition.

--a loose chain can jump off the bar while
you are cutting.
--a tight chain can damage the saw and/or
break,
3. Continue turning the Adjusting Screw until
the tension is correct.
_ .
4, Hold the tip of the Guide Bar up and tighten
the Bar Clamp Nuts with the Scrench.
5, Recheck tension.
• Chain tension is correct when the chain:
--can be lifted about 1/8" from the Guide Bar
at a point near the middle of the bar, and
•--will move freely around the bar.
TURN

......
:
Your chain saw is powered by a two-cycle
engine which requres a fuel mixture of regu_lar gasoline anda high quality engine oil specially made for 2-cycle, air-cooled engines.
The internal design of the 2-cycle engine requires lubrication of moving parts. Lubrication is provided when you use the recommended mixtureof
gasoline and oil,
.
• Gasoline must be i clean and not over two
months old. After :a sl_ort period of itime,
gasoline ,begins to chemically 'break down
and will form compounds that can cause hard
starting and damage in 2-cycle engines.
;
:
• The correct measure of gasoline to oil is very
important.
:_ --Too much oil in the mixture will =fou! the
........
Spark plug.
........... --Too little oil will cause the engine to overheat resulting in damage,
• Mix the fuel thoroughly in a container since
gasoline and oil do not readilycombine. Do not
try to mix fuel directly in the fuel tank.
1. USE THE
FOLLOWING
FUEL MIXTURES:
2. DO NOT USE:
• BIA Oil (Boating Institute of America)
--Does
not have proper additives for aircooled, 2-cycle engines and could cause
damage.
• AUTOMOTIVE
-
OIL-
Does not have proper additives for 2-cycle
engines and could cause damage.
• GASOLINE CONTAINING ALCOHOL(High Test, Premium or Gasohol)
Stiffens critical carburetor fuel metering elements and causes engine damage from
overheating.
Increases vaporlock.
m Attracts water causing corrosiondamage.
3. HOW
4. IMPORTANT
TO MIX FUEL
a. Pour one-half of the gasoline into an approved, marked container. Do not try to mix
oil and gasoline directly in the fue! tank.
b. Add entire measure of 2*cycle Engine Oil.
c. Mix.
d. Add remainder
of gasoline.
e. Mix thoroughly
for one minute.
POINTS
ao Eliminate all sources of sparks or flame in
the areas where fuel is mixed, poured, or
stored. There should be no smoking, open
flames or work that could cause sparks.
b. Mix, pour and store fuel in an approved,
marked, container and in a well-ventilated
area. Gasoline vapors are harmful to your
health and are a serious fire hazard. Use a funnel or spout when pouring fuel.
c. Avoid overfilling the fuel tank. Allow3/4 inch
for ex pansion. Tighten Fuel Cap securely. Figure 11.
d. Wipe up all fuel spills. Wipe off any fuel spilled on the saw. Completely dry the saw before
using.
e. Move at least 10 feet (3 meters) away from
fueland fueling site before starUng the engine.
Figure 11
G.
BAR
AND
CHAIN
OIL
• The guide bar and cutting chain require con.
tinuous lubrication
in order to remain in
operating condition.
Lubrication is provided
by the automatic
oiler system when the oil
tank is kept filled,
--Lack of oil will quickly ruin the bar and
chain.
--Too little oil will cause overheating shown
by smoke coming from the chain and/or
discoloration
of the guide bar rails.
• Use Sears Bar and Chain Lubricant #71-36554
or clean SAE 30W oil.
In freezing weather oil will thicken, making it
necessary to thin bar and chain oil with a
small amount of Diesel Fuel #1 or Kerosene.
Bar and chain oil must be free flowing for the
oil system to pump enough oil .for adequate
lubrication.
FILLTHE
TANK EACH
THE FUEL TANK
IS FILLED
1. USE THE
FOLLOWING:
30°F or above
Lubricant
30°F - 0° F --
95% lubricant to 5% Diesel
Fuel #1 or Kerosene.
Below 0°F
90% lubricant to 10%
Diesel Fuel #1 or Kerosene.
2. HOW
TO FILL THE
-- undiluted.
OIL TANK
a. Stop the engine.
b. Turn saw on its side with oil cap up. Figure
12.
c. Loosen cap slowly and wait for pressure in
the tank to be released before removing the
cap.
d. Fill the oil tank.
e. Replace the oil cap securely.
3. IMPORTANT
POINTS
TO REMEMBER
a. Fill the oil tank each time you refill the fuel
tank to ensure there wilt be sufficient oi! for
the chain whenever you start and run the
saw.
b.
C.
Figure 12
The saw will use about 112 tank of chain oil
for each tank of fuel mixture. If tess oil is
used, check for a plugged oil hole in the
guide bar.
;
•
It is normal for a small amount of oil to appear under the saw after the engine stops.
This is due to oil draining from the bar and
chain when not in use.

CONTROLLING
KICKBACK
........
Kickback isa dangerous reaction thatcancause
serious personal injury. Carefully study this manual before you make the first cut with your new
saw. "Youmust understand what causes kickback,
.how you can reduce the chance of kickback, and how
:you can remain in the best control of the saw if
kickback does occur.
1. _WHAT CAUSES
KICKBACK
:
Kickback can occur when the moving chain
- __ contacts an object at the tip or nose of the
guide bar. This contact causes the chain to dig
_-_.
into the object and stops the chain for an instant.
The
result is a lightning fast, reverse reaction
which kicks the saw tip up and back toward the
operator. The operator can lose control of the saw
and the cutting chain can cause serious personal
injury if it contacts any part of the body.

:,:
a. Recognize that kickback can happen. By
understanding and knowing about kickback,
you are better equipped to deal with an occurrence.
b. Never let the moving chain contact any object at the tip of the guide bar. Figure 15.
c. Keep the working area free from obstructions such as other trees, branches, rocks,
fences, stumps, etc. Figure 16. Eliminate or
avoid any obstruction that your saw chain
could hit while you are cutting through a particular log or branch.
d. Keep your saw chain sharp and properly
tensioned. A loose or dull chain can increase
the chance of kickbackl
e. Begin and continue cutting at full throttle.
If the chain is moving_ataslower-speedTthere ........................!
is greater chance for kickback to occur.
f. Cut one log at a time.
g. Use extreme caution when re-entering a
previous cut.
h. Do not attempt plunge cuts.
i. Watch for shifting logs or other forces that
could close a cut and pinch or fall into the
chain.
j. Use the Lo-Kick_Guide Bar and Guard Link
Chain specified for your particular saw.
These devices have.been_designed to reduce
the hazard of kickback:
""
k. Use extra caution if your saw is equipped
with the Power Sharp-" System. The Power
Sharp '_saw is equipped with a Lo-Kick =.Guide
Bar and a Guard Link Chain. However, due to
the chain requirements of the built-in sharpen.ing mechanism, the kickback force from the
Power Sharp'" chain may be greater than that
from other Guard Link chains.
3. MAINTAIN
CLEAR WORKING
CHANCE
THE BEST CONTROL
a. Keep a good firm grip on the saw with both
hands. Figure 117.A firm grip can neutralize
kickback and help you maintain control of the
saw. Keep the fingers of your left hand encircling and your left thumb under the front handlebar. Keep your right hand completely
around the rear handle whether you are right
:handed or/eft handed. Keep your left arm
straight with the elbow locked.
b. Position your left hand on the front handlebar so it is in a straight line with your
right hand on the rear handle. Figure 17.
Never reverse rightand left hand position.
c. Stand with your weight evenly balanced on
both feet.
d. Stand slightly to the left side of the saw, to
keep your body from being in a direct line
with the cutting chain; Figure 17.
e. Do not overreach. You could be drawn or
thrown off batance and lose controlof the saw.
f. Do not cut above shoulder height. It is difficult to maintain control of the saw above
shoulder height.

USING THE POWER
,
, ,
,
SHARP®SYSTEM
,,
• Model 358.356100 is equipped with a Power Sharp ®
:System that will perform approximately 80% of the
sharpening necessary for the saw chain. The Power
Sharp® System uses a built-in grinding stone to sharpen the cutter top plates and set depth gauges. As
: the built-in sharpener is used, the cutter side plates
.gradually
will be altered. Hand filing is required to
correct the cutter side plates.
• Sharpen the saw chain when:
--wood chips become small and powdery.
Wood chips made by the chain should be
about the size of the teeth of the chain.
--saw
has to be forced through the cut.
JCAUTION:J ALways wear gloves when handling
the chain. The chain can be sharp enough to cut
you, even when it is too dull to cut wood.
A,
AUTOMATIC
:
'IMPORTANT: The chain must be tensioned
correctly for proper sharpening to occur.
4. Start the engine and operate at half to three/
quarters throttle during steps "5", "6", "7",
and "8".
NOTE: Saw must be running at half to three/
quarters throttle before knob is pressed.

FELLING LARGE TREES m 6" DIAMETER
OR MORE
The notch method is used to cut large trees. A
notch is cut on the side of the tree in the desired
direction of fall. After a felling cut is made on the
opposite side of the tree, the tree will tend to fall
into the notch.
NOTE: If the tree has large buttress roots, removebefore making the notch. Cut into the buttresses vertically, then horizontally, Figure28.
a. Makethe notch cut. Figure29.
1.) Cut the bottom of the notch first, through
1/3 of the diameter of the tree.
2.) Complete the notch by making the slant
cut.
3.) Remove the notch of wood.
b. Make thefelling cut on the opposite sideofthe
notch about 2" higher than the bottom of the
notch.
c. Leave enough uncut wood between the felling
cut and the notch to form a hinge. Figure 30.
NOTE: The hinge helps to keel5 the tree from
twisting and falling in the wrong direction.
d. Use a wedge if there is any chance that the tree
will not fall in the desired direction.

NOTE: Before the felling cut is complete, drive
wedges to open up the cut when necessary to
control the direction of fall. Use wood, plastic or
light alloy wedges but never steel or iron, to
avoid kickback and chain damage.
e. Be alert for signs that the tree is ready to fall:
1.) cracking sounds
2.) widening of the felling cut
3.) movement in the upper branches.
f. As the tree starts to fall; stop the saw; put it
down, and get away quickly on yourplanned
retreat path.
g. Be extremely cautious with partially fallen trees
that may be poody supported. When a tree
doesn't falllcomp!etely, set the saw aside and

-- Overcutting - begin on the top side of the
log with the spur against the log: exert light
pressure downward.
m Undercutting - begin on the under side of the
log with the top of the saw against the log; exert
light pressure upward. During undercutting,
the saw will tend to push back at you. Be prepared for this reaction and hold the saw firmly
to maintain control.
