ELECTRICAL HAZARDS
The following guidelines must be followed to prevent
accidental contact with overhead electrical conductors
and/or communication wires and cables. (Ref. ANSI
Z133.1-1982)
All overhead conductors and all communications wires
and cables are considered to be energized with potentially fatal voltages and must never be touched either directly or indirectly. Accidental contact with any overhead
conductors or communication wires and cables can result in death or serious injury.
A close inspection shall be made by the tool operator and by the tool operator’s supervisor to determine
whether an electrical conductor passes through the tree
or passes within reaching distance of the tool operator.
Only qualified tool operators shall be assigned to the
work if an electrical hazard exists.
A second qualified tool operator must be within normal
voice communication during line clearing operations
aloft when the tool operator approaches closer than 10
feet (3 m) to any conductor or electrical apparatus energized in excess of 750 volts, or when roping is required
to remove the branches or limbs.
Tool operators must maintain the following clearances
from energized conductors:
Voltage Range
(phase-to-phase) (kV)
Minimum Working
Distance
2.1–15.0
2 ft 0 in./0.6 m
15.1–35.0
2 ft 4 in./0.7 m
35.1–46.0
2 ft 6 in./0.75 m
46.1–72.5
3 ft 0 in./0.9 m
72.6–121.0
3 ft 4 in./1.0 m
138.0–145.0
3 ft 6 in./1.05 m
161.0–169.0
3 ft 8 in./1.1 m
230.0–242.0
5 ft 0 in./1.5 m
345.0–362.0
7 ft 0 in./2.1 m
500.0–552.0
11 ft 0 in./3.35 m
700.0–765.0
15 ft 0 in./4.55 m
All other tree workers must maintain a minimum clearance of 10 feet (3 meters) from energized conductors
rated 50 kV phase-to-phase or less. Conductors rated
over 50 kV phase-to-phase require a minimum clearance of 10 feet plus 4/10 of an inch (3 meters plus 10
mm) for each kilovolt over 50 kV.
When a lifting device contacts an electrical conductor,
the truck supporting the device is considered to be energized and contact with the truck must be avoided except
when emergency rescue procedures are being carried
out. Emergency rescue should only be attempted by
properly trained personnel familiar with electrical hazards.
Storm work and emergency conditions create special
hazards. During these conditions, only authorized tool
operators shall perform any tree operation.The following guidelines must be followed to prevent accidental
contact with overhead electrical conductors and/or communication wires and cables. (Ref. ANSI Z133.1-2000)
Working in Proximity to Electrical Hazards:
An inspection shall be made by a qualified arborist to
determine whether an electrical hazard exists before
climbing, or otherwise entering, or performing work in
or on a tree.
Only qualified line-clearance arborists or qualified lineclearance arborist trainees shall be assigned to work
where an electrical hazard exists. Qualified line-clearance arborist trainees shall be under the direct supervision of qualified line-clearance arborist.
A second qualified line-clearance arborists or line-clearance arborist trainees shall be within vision or voice
communication during line-clearing operations aloft
when line-clearance arborists or line-clearance arborist
trainees must approach closer than 10 feet (3.05 meters) to any energized electrical conductor in excess of
750 volts (primary conductor) or when:
1. Branches or limbs being removed cannot first be
cut (with a pole pruner/pole saw) to sufficiently clear
electrical conductors, so as to avoid contact.
2. Roping is required to remove branches or limbs
from such electrical conductors. This does not apply to individuals working on behalf of, or employed
by, electrical system owners/operators engaged in
line-clearing operations incidental to their normal
occupation.
Qualified line-clearance arborists and line-clearance
arborist trainees shall maintain minimum approach distances from energized electrical conductors in accordance with Table 1.
All other arborists shall maintain a minimum approach
distance from energized electrical conductors in accordance with Table 2.
Branches hanging on an energized electrical conductor
shall be removed using non-conductive equipment.

OPERATION
PREOPERATION PROCEDURES
PREPARATION FOR INITIAL USE
Each unit as shipped has no special unpacking or assembly requirements prior to usage. Inspection to assure the unit was not damaged in shipping and does not
contain packing debris is all that is required. After installation of a saw blade a unit may be put to use.
CHECK HYDRAULIC POWER SOURCE
1. Using a calibrated flowmeter and pressure gauge,
check that the hydraulic power source develops a
flow of 5–7 gpm/19–26 lpm at 1000–2000 psi/70–
140 bar.
2. Make certain the hydraulic power source is equipped
with a relief valve set to open at 2100–2250 psi/145–
155 bar minimum.
3. Check that the dual spool valve is set to the hydraulic system type (open-center (OC) or closed-center
(CC) operation).
CHECK TOOL
1. Make sure all tool accessories are correctly installed. Failure to install tool accessories properly
can result in damage to the tool or personal injury.
2. There should be no signs of leaks.
3. The tool should be clean, with all fittings and fasteners tight.
CHECK TRIGGER MECHANISM
Check that the trigger operates smoothly and is free to
travel between the ON and OFF positions.
SETTING THE DUAL SPOOL FOR OC
(OPEN-CENTER) OR CC (CLOSEDCENTER) OPERATION
IMPORTANT
This tool is furnished with a ON/OFF spool
commonly referred to as a “dual spool” which permits
adjustment so the tool may be operated on either an
open-center (OC) or closed-center (CC) hydraulic
system. The dual spool is normally set to the OC
position at time of manufacture. The dual spool can
also be disabled so that the tool may be set to OC
only operation. For more details, please refer to the
following instructions.

OPERATION
MAKING CUTS
WARNING
The following are general wood cutting procedures
and techniques. Differences in the terrain,
vegetation, and type of wood will make this
information more or less valid for particular areas.
For advice on specific wood cutting problems or
techniques for your area, consult your local Stanley
representative or your county agent. They can often
provide information that will make your work safer
and more productive.
4. In sawing limbs which have a tendency to split or
tear when making a single saw flush cut, Figure 4, it
is advisable to make more than one cut. The first cut
is made a few inches from the point of the flush cut
removing the weight of the limb being trimmed out
and leaving a short stub. The stub is then flushed off
as shown in Figure 5. Whenever practical, the cut
shall be treated with tree paint if it is larger than 1
inch in diameter. This technique will avoid breaking
the lateral which you are trying to save or splitting
the remaining limb down the center as the flush cut
is made.
1. Move the hydraulic circuit control valve to the ON
position to pressurize the circuit.
2. Maintain a firm grip on the saw handle. While maintaining firm footing and balance, position the saw
blade near the material to be cut.
3. Squeeze the ON/OFF valve handle trigger and allow
the saw blade to reach FULL speed.
IMPORTANT
The saw blade must reach FULL speed before
attempting a cut.
FINAL CUT
THE FIRST CUT IS TO TAKE WEIGHT
OFF BEFORE THE FINAL CUT TO
PREVENT THE LIMB FROM SPLITTING
DOWN THE CENTER.

5. Watch the saw reaction to making a cut. Control the
movement of the saw.
6. Release the ON/OFF trigger to stop saw blade rotation.
7. Reposition the saw to make the next cut and continue operating the saw as stated above.
WARNING
Figure 4. Flush Cutting a Limb That Might Split or Tear.
16 ► CR27 User Manual
After releasing the ON/OFF trigger, saw operators
must be certain that the saw has come to a complete
stop after a few seconds or more. The saw blade
must come to a complete stop before placing the saw
into the truck’s bucket, storing the saw or contacting
the blade in any way. Failure to observe this warning
may result in severe personal injury.
OPERATION
AFTER OPERATION
1. Wipe the saw thoroughly with a clean dry or slightly
oiled cloth.
2. Clean tree pitch and residue from the blade. Handle
the blade with care to avoid getting cut by the sharp
teeth.
3. Check all fasteners for tightness.
4. When the saw is not in use, store horizontally in a
clean, dry space and protected from damage.
Maintain a 20° angle and always file outwards on each
right or left cutter tooth. File only with a slight pressure
against the cutter tooth (not on top of the cutter) during
the forward stroke. Release pressure as you pull the file
back. The file will only cut during the forward stroke.
While filing, always try to keep the file holder perpendicular to the side of the blade. Try not to move the file
holder up or down or move the file holder to the setting
of the tooth.
5. Protect the blade teeth and keep the teeth sharp. A
sharp blade will cut cleaner and faster.
BLADE CARE
Every day visually check the blade for cracks and warpage. Cracks will lead to a break and “out of flat” will
cause excessive vibration. Make sure the spindle locknut is tight.
When sharpening, never use a flat file which may leave
a square corner in the gullet. Because of high speed
vibration, this becomes a point from which a crack will
start.
Do not let gum, sap or dirt build up underneath the cutting edges. This adds undue friction and reduces cutting
efficiency due to loss of clearance.
Inspection of the cutting teeth should be made often during each day’s use. It is faster to touch up the teeth with
a few strokes of the file than to allow the teeth to get dull.
Dull teeth cause loss of cutting capacity and too much
friction. A sharp spare blade is a good back-up in case
of trouble.
BLADE SHARPENING
BLADE TEETH
Using a file holder with a 7/16 inch round file (Stanley
Part Number 11299), place the file holder flat on top of
the cutter with the file against the cutter tooth.
CUTTER
FILE HOLDER
FILE
CUTTER TOOTH
Figure 7. Filing Angle
TOP OF CUTTERS
The top of each cutter is factory ground to ensure the
best cutting performance. Normally, the tops of the cutters will not require filing unless the edge is badly worn
or damaged.
If the top of a cutter requires filing, use a smooth flat file
to give the cutter its original shape. After filing, ensure
that all cutters have the same length and profile.
SETTING TOOTH ANGLE
A sharp outside corner and an exact angle setting will
give maximum cutting performance. Special setting tool
(Stanley part number 34653) is required to verify or properly set the angle of each cutter tooth at .040 inch/1 mm.
Match one of the grooves in the setting tool to the blade
thickness. Place the setting tool over the cutter near the
cutter tooth and bend the tooth until the angle on the setting tool touches the side of the blade. DO NOT OVER
SET. Over-setting will cause rough cutting and vibration
which may result in stress cracks and eventual blade
failure.

COLD WEATHER OPERATION
If the saw is to be used during cold weather, preheat
the hydraulic fluid at low engine speed. When using the
normally recommended fluids, fluid temperature should
be at or above 50 °F/10 °C (400 ssu/82 centistokes) before use.

TOOL PROTECTION & CARE
NOTICE
In addition to the Safety Precautions found in
this manual, observe the following for equipment
protection and care.
•
Make sure all couplers are wiped clean before connection.
•
The hydraulic circuit control valve must be in the
OFF position when coupling or uncoupling hydraulic tools. Failure to do so may result in damage to
the quick couplers and cause overheating of the hydraulic system.
•
Always store the tool in a clean dry space, safe from
damage or pilferage.
•
Make sure the circuit PRESSURE hose (with male
quick disconnect) is connected to the IN port. The
circuit RETURN hose (with female quick disconnect)
is connected to the opposite port. Do not reverse circuit flow. This can cause damage to internal seals.
•
•
Do not exceed the rated flow and pressure. Refer
to the Specifications page in this manual for correct
flow and pressure rates. If flow and pressure are exceeded, rapid failure of the internal seals may result.
•
Always keep critical tool markings, such as warning
stickers and tags legible.
•
Tool repair should be performed by experienced
personnel only.
•
Make certain that the recommended relief valves
are installed in the pressure side of the system.
•
Do not use the tool for applications for which it was
not intended.
Always replace hoses, couplings and other parts
with replacement parts recommended by Stanley
Hydraulic Tools. Supply hoses must have a minimum working pressure rating of 2500 psi/172 bar.
