Safety Information
Important - Please read these instructions fully before operating or maintaining
Proper Use
The chain is designed exclusively for sawing wood. You may only fell trees if you have received
the appropriate training. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage caused by improper
or incorrect usage.
Residual hazards
Even when the equipment is used properly, a certain residual hazard cannot be ruled out. The
following potential dangers may arise in connection with the equipment’s design and construction:
Contact with the unguarded saw chain (injuries through cutting).
Reaching into the saw chain while it is running (injuries through cutting).
Unforeseen, sudden movement of the cutter rail (injuries through cutting).
Catapulting of parts of the saw chain.
Catapulting of parts of the material being cut.
amage to hearing if the compulsory hearing protection is not used Inhalation of particles
D
from the material being cut, emissions from the combustion engine.
Skin contact with petrol.
The machine is to be used only for its prescribed purpose. Any other use is deemed to be a case
of misuse. The user / operator and not the manufacturer will be liable for any damage or injuries
of any kind caused as a result of this.
Please note that our equipment has not been designed for use in commercial, trade or industrial
applications. Our warranty will be voided if the machine is used in commercial, trade or industrial
businesses or for equivalent purposes.
The following information is primarily for the end user or occasional user. The chainsaw is designed
for occasional use by home owners, garden owners and campers and is for general work such
as stumpgrubbing, cutting firewood, etc. It is not designed for lengthy use. If it is used for a lengthy
period, the vibrations it causes in the hands of the user may result in circulation problems (white
finger syndrome).The hand-arm vibration syndrome (vibration white finger) is a vascular disease
that involves seizure-like spasms of the fingers and toes. The affected areas are no longer sufficiently
supplied with blood and therefore appear extremely pale. The frequent use of vibrating equipment
may trigger nerve damage in people with an impaired circulation (for example smokers, diabetics).
Should you observe any unusual impairments, interrupt your work immediately and consult a doctor.
12
Customer Helpline 0151 649 1500
Safety Information
Important - Please read these instructions fully before operating or maintaining
Proper Use (continued)
Follow these instructions in order to reduce the dangers:
Keep your body and in particular your hands warm when working in the cold.
Take regular breaks and move your hands to stimulate the blood circulation during the breaks.
Ensure that the equipment makes the least possible vibration through regular maintenance and
solid parts on the equipment.
Kickback Safety
Kickback is the term used to describe the reaction of the chainsaw when the nose or tip of the guide
bar comes into contact with an object. This form of contact causes a lightening fast reverse reaction
causing the nose or tip of the chainsaw to ‘kickback’ towards the operator. This presents a risk of
serious personal injury or even death. Although the chainsaw is fitted with the various safety features,
it is imperative that you stay alert at all times to prevent kickback occurring. You can do this by
observing the following simple rules:
• Ensure the chainsaw is held firmly with both hands. The right hand should grip the rear handle and
the left hand the front handle. Gripping the handles firmly will help you control the chainsaw more
effectively in the event of kickback.
• Ensure the tip or nose of the chainsaw never comes into contact with any object while operating.
• Always use the chainsaw at full throttle to maintain the optimum cutting speed.
• Under no circumstances should you overreach while operating the chainsaw.
The following figure demonstrates the reaction zone of the chainsaw tip and situations which may
cause kickback.

Safety Information
Important - Please read these instructions fully before operating or maintaining
Pinching Safety
Pinching is the term used to describe the reaction of the chainsaw when the BOTTOM or TOP of
the guide bar is pinched in the object being cut or sawn. This form of contact causes the chainsaw
to move rapidly towards or away from you. If the BOTTOM of the guide is pinched, the chainsaw will
be pulled away from you. If the TOP of the guide is pinched, the chainsaw will be pushed towards
you. This presents a risk of serious personal injury or even death. Although the chainsaw is fitted
with the various safety features, it is imperative that you stay alert at all times to prevent pinching
occurring.
To prevent pinching, always place the object to be cut against the claw stop at the rear of the guide
bar as shown in the figure below.
The following figure demonstrates the types of sawing action which may lead to pinching.

Preparing
to Operate the Chainsaw
Step 2 - Check the Chain Brake (continued)
WARNING! The chain brake must not be tested with the chainsaw running unless strictly instructed
to do so in this manual. Failure to observe this warning may lead to serious personal injury.
WARNING! The chain brake can only reduce the possibility of serious personal injury if it is fitted in
accordance with the instructions detailed in the Assembly Manual. If the chain brake is tampered with
or the chainsaw is not used in accordance with these operating instructions i.e. careless operation,
the risk of serious injury may still exist.
CAUTION! If it proves difficult to move the chain brake lever into the required position, stop using
the chainsaw immediately. It should be inspected by a suitably qualified service technician.
The chainsaw is fitted with a chain brake which is designed to reduce the possibility of serious
personal injury due to kickback. The chain brake is engaged when pressure is applied to the chain
brake lever i.e. when the operator’s hand strikes the chain brake lever during kickback.
Once the chain brake is engaged, the saw chain stops moving immediately.
WARNING! NEVER use a chainsaw which is damaged, incorrectly set or incompletely and loosely
assembled. Failure to observe this warning may lead to serious personal injury.
2a. Check the Chain Brake Disengages
Pull the chain brake lever A fully backwards until it ‘clicks’ into position. If the chain brake is
disengaged it should be possible to move the saw chain using a gloved hand.
If it is not possible to move the saw chain, the chain brake may be damaged. Do not use the chainsaw
until it has been inspected by a suitably qualified technician.
2b. Check the Chain Brake Engages
Push the chain brake lever A fully forwards until it ‘clicks’ into position. If the chain brake is engaged it
should NOT be possible to move the saw chain using a gloved hand.
If it is possible to move the saw chain, the chain brake may be damaged. Do not use the chainsaw
until it has been inspected by a suitably qualified technician.

How
to Use the Chainsaw
Introduction
WARNING! Before attempting to use the chainsaw, it is imperative that you undertake professional
training by an accredited body. This will provide full instruction on the type of sawing and cutting
operations that can be performed complete with relevant safety training.
Cutting and sawing with a chainsaw can be very dangerous if undertaken without proper training.
WARNING! Never attempt to start or operate the chainsaw if you suspect there is spilt fuel or
any other flammable gases/liquids in the area. Failure to observe this notice may present a risk of
explosion.
WARNING! Always be aware of the proximity of any part of your body to the saw chain while the
operating the chainsaw. Ensure the saw chain is kept away from legs, feet and body at all times.
Failure to observe this warning may lead to serious personal injury or death.
WARNING! Always wear fully enclosed safety goggles when operating the chainsaw to protect your
eyes from flying dust and debris. Failure to observe this warning may lead to irreparable damage to
your eyes.
WARNING! Always wear suitable ear plugs or ear defenders when operating the chainsaw to protect
your hearing. Prolonged exposure to the loud noise produced by the chainsaw may lead to hearing
loss or impairment.
WARNING! Always wear suitable gloves when operating chainsaw to protect your hands from flying
debris and/or sharp objects. It is particularly important to wear protective gloves when assembly or

This chainsaw can be used to perform the following types of cutting and sawing operations:
• Felling - Used to cut down large trees.
• Limbing - Used to remove branches and larger limbs from a tree trunk.
• Bucking - Used to cut large logs or trunks into smaller lengths.
The following steps provide a brief overview of each type of cutting operation. Always undertake
full professional training before using the chainsaw to perform any of these types of cuts.

Felling
Direction of Fall
Notching Cut
Felling Cut
Felling is the type of cut used to cut down trees. Whereas it may be possible to cut down small trees
(6-7 inches in diameter) with a single straight through cut, larger trees require a felling cut.
If this type of cut is made it is performed in two stages. The first stage is the notching cut which
determines the direction the tree will fall. The second stage is the felling cut which weakens the tree
trunk and causes it to fall.
B
A
WARNING! A repeat path (A) should be planned and cleared as necessary before cuts are
started. The retreat path should extend back and diagonally to the rear of the expected line
of fall, as illustrated above.
WARNING! If felling a tree on sloping ground, the chain saw operator should keep on the
uphill side of the terrain, as the tree is likely to roll or slide downhill after it is felled.
NOTE! Direction of fall (B) is controlled by the notching cut. Before any cuts are made, consider the
location of larger branches and natural lean of the tree to determine the way the tree will fall (Fig. 20).
Customer Helpline 0151 649 1500
29
How
to Use the Chainsaw
Felling (continued)
WARNING! Do not cut down a tree during high or changing winds or if there is a danger
to property. Consult a tree professional. Do not cut down a tree if there is danger of
striking utility wires; notify the utility company before making any cuts.
WARNING! Never walk in front of a tree that has been notched. Make the felling cut (D) from
the other side of the tree and 1.5-2.0 inches (3-5cm) above the edge of the notch (C). Never
saw completely through the trunk. Always leave a hinge. The hinge guides the tree. If the trunk
is completely cut through, control over the felling direction is lost.
Insert a wedge or felling lever in the cut well before the tree becomes unstable and starts to move.
This will prevent the guidebar from binding in the felling cut if you have misjudged the falling direction.
Make sure no bystanders have entered the range of the falling tree before you push it over.
WARNING! Before making the final cut, always recheck the area for bystanders,
animals or obstacles.
NOTE! The chainsaw is designed for occasional use by home owners, garden owners and campers
and is for general work such as stump grubbing, cutting firewood, etc. It is not designed for lengthy
use. If it is used for a lengthy period, the vibrations it causes in the hands of the user may result in
circulation problems (white finger syndrome).
WARNING! Felling of trees is prohibited without the necessary training.
WARNING! Ensure that you frequently check the operation of the chainsaw Brake.
NOTE! Spiked bumper.

How
to Use the Chainsaw
Limbing
This type of cut is used to remove small branches from a felled or fallen tree. Cuts can be made
horizontally or vertically to the bottom of a branch. Usually limbing cuts are performed when a tree
trunk has been cut into small manageable lengths using a bucking cut. Branches under tension
should be cut from the bottom up to avoid binding the chainsaw.
Customer Helpline 0151 649 1500
31
How
to Use the Chainsaw
Bucking
Saw Horse
A bucking cut is used to cut a fallen or felled tree into small manageable lengths or logs. Usually the
tree trunk will be supported at one end, both ends or along its entire length. Often this type of cut is
performed using a sawhorse which provides all the required support to keep the trunk stable.
WARNING! This chainsaw must only be used for light domestic applications such as sawing wood
in your own garden. It is not a commercial, trade or industrial product and must not be used for
extended periods of time. Extended use may lead to circulatory problems. Always seek guidance
and appropriate training before attempting to fell trees or perform sawing operations on large trees
or tree stumps.
WARNING! Never cut tree limbs while standing on tree trunk.
