GUARD
AGAINST
KICKBACK
Kickbackisa dangerous reactionthat can/eadtosedous
injury. Do not rely only on the safety devices provided
with your saw. As a chain saw user, you must follow
special safety instructlonsto helpkeep yourcutting jobs
free from accident or injury.
_IL KICKBACK WARNING
Kickback can occur when the moving chain contacts
an objectat the upperportion ofthetip ofthe guide bar
orwhen the wood closes in and pinchesthe sawchain
in the cut. Contactattheupperportionofthetipofthe
guidebarcan cause the chainto dig intothe object and
stop the chain for an instanL The result is a lightning
fast, reverse reaction which Idcks theguide bar up and
back toward the operator, ff the saw chain is pinched
along the top of the guide bar_ the guide bar can be
driven rapldiyback towardthe operator.Either oTthese
reactions can cause loss of saw control which can
result in serious personal injury.

CHANCE
,, =
OF
1. Recognize that kickback can happen. With a
basic understanding of kickback, you can reduce
the element of surprise which contributes to
accidents.
2. Neverletthemovingchaincontact any objectatthe
tip of the guide bar. Figure1.
3. Keep the working area free from obstructions
such as other trees, branches, rocks, fences,
stumps, etc. Figure 2. Eliminate or avoid any
obstructionthat your saw chain could hit while you
are cutting through a particula_ log or branch.
4. Keep your saw chain sharp and properly tensioned. Followmanufacturer_chainsharpeningand
maintenanceinstru_ons. Check tension at regular
intervalsw_ththeengines_opped,
neverwiththeengine
running. Make sure the bar clamp nuts are securely
tightenedafter tensioningthe chain. A looseor-dull
chaincanincrease the chance ofkickbackto occur.
5. Begin and continue cutting at full throttle. If the
chain is moving at a slower speed, there is greater
chance for kickback to occur,
6. Cut only one log at a time.
7. Use extreme caution when re-entering a previous
cut.
8. Do not attempt plunge cuts.
g. Watch for shifting logs or other forces that could
.....close a cut and pinch or fall into the chain.
10. Use the Reduced-Kickback Guide Bar and LowKickback Chain specified for .yoursaw.
MAINTAIN
AVOID
OBSTRUCTIONS
=l, ii
1.
CONTROL
Keep a good firm grip on the saw with both hands
when the engine is running and don't let go.
Figure 3. 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 left handed. Keep your left
arm straight with the elbow locked.
2. Positionyourlefthandonthefronthandlebarsoit
is in a straight line with your right hand on the mar
handle when making bucking cuts. Figure& Never
reverseright and left hand positionsduringany type
ofcutting.
3. Stand with your weight evenly balanced on
both fe_.I.
4. Stand slightly to the left side of the saw, to keep
your body from being in a direct line with the
• Cutting chain. Figure 3.
5. Do not overreach. You could be drawn or thrown
off balance and/ose control of the saw.
6. Do not cut above shoulder height. It is difficultto
maintain control of the saw above shoulder height.

FORCES
Pin0h-Kickback and Pu!!-in occur when the chain is
suddenly stopped by being pinched, caught, or by
contacting a foreign object in the wood. Thisresultsin a
reversalofthe chainforceusedtocutwoodand causesthesaw
to move in the oppositedirectionof chain rotation.PinchKickback drives the saw straight back towardthe operator.
Pull-inpulls the saw away from the operator. Either reaction
can resultinlossofcontroland possible sedous personal
injury.
SAFETY

THIS SAW IS 'FOR OCCASIONAL
USE ONLY
NOTE: Exposure to vibrationsthrough prolonged useof
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 can cause nerve and circulation
damage and tissue necrosis,
An anti-vibration system designed to reduce
engine vibration is recommended for those using
chain saws on a regular or sustained basis and is
provided on this saw, An anti-vibration system
doesnotguaranteetheavoidanceofWhitefinger
disease, Continual and regular users must
monitor closely their use of chain saws and
physical condition.

b. Loosen cap slowly; wait for pressure in the
tank to be released before removing the
cap.
c. Fill the oil tank.
d. Reptace the oil cap securely.
• The guide bar and cutting chain require constant lubrication
in order to remain in
operating condition. Lubrication is provided
by the automatic oiler system when the oil
tank is kept fitled.
-- Lack of lubricant will quickly ruin the bar and
chain.
--Too little lubricant will cause overheating

3. IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER
a. Fill the oil tank each time you refill the fuel
tank to ensure there will be sufficient oil for
the chain whenever you start and run the
saw.
•
Use Sears Bar and Chain Lubricant (#71-36554-I qt. or 71-36556 -- 1 gal.) or clean SAE 30W oil.
b. It is normal for a small amount of oil to appear under the saw after the engine stops
due to oft draining from the bar and chain,
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 enoughoil for adequate lubrication.
1. USE THE FOLLOWING:
30°F or above--Lubricant--undiluted.
• 30°F- 0°F
--95% Lubricant to
5% Diesel Fuel #1
or Kerosene.
Below OOF
_90% Lubricant to

1. IMPORTANT POINTS
a. Cut wood only, Donotcutmeta!,p[_t_cs, masonry,
nonwoodbuildingmaterials,etc.Do notuseyours_v
to pry or shove av_y limbs, rootsor otherobjects.
b. Stop the saw if the chain strikes a foreignobject.
Inspect the saw and repak or replace parts as
necessary.
Keep the chain out of dirt and sand. Evenasmall
amount of dirt wilt quickly dull a chain and thus
increasethe possibilityof kickback.
...............
_ KICKBA'_' WARN'iNG ''_
Kickback can oacur when the moving chain contacts
an objectatthe upper portion ofthetip of the guide bar
orwhen the wood closes in and pinches the saw chain
in the cut. Contact at the upperportion of the tip of the
guide bar can cause the chain todig intothe object and
stop the ¢hair_for an ins_rd_ T._e resLdt_sa fighting
fast, reverse reaction which Idcks the guide bar up and
back toward the operator. If the saw chain is pinched
along the top of the guide bar, the guide bar can be
driven rapidly back toward the operator. Either ofthese
reactions can cause loss of control whichcan resuitin

c. Keep the engine at full throttle the entire timeyou
are cuffing.
d. Allow the chain to cut for you; exert only light
downward pressure. If youforce the cut, damage to
the bar,chain, or engine canresult.
e. Release the throttle trigger as soon as the cut is
completed, aJtowingtheengineto idte.Ifyou runthe

TREE FELLING
TECHNIQUES
1. PLAN YOUR SAWING OPERATION CAREFULLY IN ADVANCE
a. Clear the work area. You need a clear area all
around the tree where you can have secure
footing.
b. Study the natural conditions thatcan cause
the'tree to fall in a particular direction:
1.) The WIND direcfionand speed.
2.) The LEANofthetree.
3.) WEtGHTED withBRANCHES on one side.
•4.) ,_urroundingTREES and OBSTACLES.
c. Loolcfordecayandrot. Iftheteankisrotted,itcan
snap and fall towardtheoperator.
.d., Check for broken or dead branches which
could fall on you whilecutting.
e. Make surethereis enough room for the tree
to fall. Maintain a distance of 2_/_ tree
lengths from the nearest person or other objects. Engine noise can drown out a warning
Call.
f. Remove dirt, stones, loose bark, nails,
staples, and wire from the tree where cuts
are to be made.
g. Plan to stand on the up-hill side when cutting on a slope.
h. Plan a clear retreat path to the rear and
diagonaitothelineoffall.

2. FELLING SMALL TREES -- LESS THAN 6"
IN DIAMETER
a. If you knowthe directionof falh
1.) Make a sing{e felling cut on the side away
from the direction of fall.
2.) Cut _Jfthe waythrough.
3.) Stop the saw, put it down, and get away
quicklyon your planned retreat path.
b. tf you arc not sure which way the tree wil!fall,
use the notch method described for felling
large trees.
3.
FELLING LARGE TREES-OR MORE
6" DIAMETER
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
intothe notch.
NOTE: If the tree has large buttress roots, remove before making the notch. Cut into the buttresses vertically,then horizontally.Figure24.
a. Make the notchcut. Figure 25.
1:) Cut the bottom of the notch first, through
1/.3ofthe diameter of the tree.
2.) Complete the notch by making the slant
cut.
3.) I_emove the notchofwood.
b. Makethefellingcutontheoppositesideofthe
notch about 2" higher than the bottom of the
notch.
IN THESE POSITIONS
Check the lean,
Don'tcut on lean side.
Check the balance.
Don't cut on weighted s_de.
c. Leave enough uncut Wood between the felling
cut and thenotchto form a hinge. Figure 26.
J
NOTE: The hinge helps to keep the tree from
twisting and falling in the wrongdirection.
d, Use a wedge if there is any chance that the
tree wiltnot fall in the desireddirection.

but never metal, to avoid kickback and chain
damage
e. Be alert for signs that the treeis ready to fall:
t,) cracking sounds
2.) wideningofthefellingcut
3.) movementintheupperbranches,
f. As the tree starts to fall, stop the saw; put it
down, and get away quickly on your planned
retreatpath.

1. IMPORTANTPOINTS
a. Cut only one log at a time,
b. Cut shattered wood very carefully. Sharppieces
of wood could be flung towardthe operator.
c. Use a sawhorse to cut small 10gs. Never allow
• another person to hold the log while cuttingand
never hold the log with your leg or foot.

2ND CUT
4-----
Give special attention to logs under strain to
prevent the saw from pinching. Make the first
cut on the pressure side to relieve the slress on
the log Figure 27.
Figure27
,,,i, ,,H,,
I,
Do not cut in an area where logs, limbs and
roots are tangled such as in a blown down
area, Drag the/ogs into a clear area beforecut_ing by puUingout exposed and cleared logsfirst.
f. Make the first bucking Cut 113 of the way
through the tog and finish with a 2/3 cut on
the opposite side. As the log is being cut, it will
tend to bend. The Saw can become pinched or
hung In the log if you make the first cut deeper
than 1/3 of the diameter of the log.

2. TYPES OF CUTTING USED F'_um28.
--Overcutling
- begin on the top side of the log
with the bottom of the saw against the log;
exert lightpressure downward.
WEDGE USED TO
HOLD CUT OPEN.
Undercutting - begin on the underside of the
fog with the top of the saw againstthe 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 maintaincontrol.
A WARNING
If saw becomes pinched or hung in a log, don't try to
force it out. You can loose control of the saw resulting
in serious personal injury and/or damage to the saw.
Stop the saw,drive a wedge of plastic or wood intothe
cut until the saw can be removed easily. Figure 29.
Restart the saw and carefully reenter the cut, To avoid
ldckbackand chain damage, do not usea metalwedge.
Do not attempt to restart yoursawwhen itispinched or

• • Watch out for springpoles. Use extreme caution
when cutting small size limbs. Slender materia!
can catch the saw chain and be whipped toward
you or pullyou offbalance.
• Be alert for springback. Watch out for branches
that are bent or under pressure as you are cuing
to avoid being struck by the branch orthe saw when

the chance of kickback which can result in serious
personal Injury.
b, CHAIN REPLACEMENT
• 1.) UseonlytheLow.KickChainspecifiedfor
yoursawin"Specificat_ons;, for replacement chain.
2.) Replace the chain when cqtters or links
break.
3.) See your Sears Service Center to replace
and sharpen individual cutters for matching your chain.
4.) Always have a worn sprocket replaced by
your Sears Service Center when installing
a new chain to avoid excessive wear to the
chain.
2. GUIDE BAR MAINTENANCE
• Conditions which can require guide bar
maintenance:
--saw cuts to one side
--saw has to be forced thro.ugh a _t
_inadequate
supply of oil to bar and
chain,
• Check the condition of the guide bar each
time the chain is sharpened. A worn guide
bar will damage the chain, and make cutting more difficult.
': ! Replace the guide bar when:
--the inside groove of the guide bar rails is
worn.
--the guide bar is bentor cracked.
