KICKBACK CONDITIONS AND PREVENTION
Kickbackoccurswhen the upper quadrant of the bar
nose contacts a solid object in the wood or is pinched,
This type of contact stops the chain for an instant.The
resultis a lightningfast reverse reaction of the chain;
causing the bar to "kick"up end back toward the
operator. Under some circumstancesthe operator
(Fig. I) may suffer severe or fatal injury.Kickbackmay
also occurdudng limbing (See LIMBING).

second. The chain brake can also be engaged
manually by pushingthe lever-handguardtowards the
frontof the saw untila loud click is heard. The saw
shouldnot be run above idle for more than a few
secondswith the brake engaged; otherwise damage to
the saw will occur.
TO AVOID KICKBACK
The best protectionfrom personal injurythat may
resultfrom Kickback is to avoid Kickbacksituations.
•
Hold the chain saw firmlywith beth handsand
maintain a secure grip,
•
Be aware of the location of the guide bar nose at
all times (Fig, 2).
RGURE 2
To properlydisengage the chain brake; firmly pull the
[ever-handguard back towardsthe hand[e (Fig. 3) until
a loud click is heard. Failure to completely disengage
the brake properlywill cause excessive heat build-up
on the brake band which, in turn, can cause severe
damage to the saw body.

AND OIL MIXTURE
Important! Do not use automotive or boat oils in your
chain saw. These oils do not have proper additives for
2-cycle, air-cooled engines and can cause engine
damage.
Gasoline and oil mustbe pramixed in a clean
approvedfuel container.Always use fresh regular
unleadedgasoline.This engine is certifiedto operate
on unleaded gasoline.
The 2-cycle engine on this productrequiresa fuel

IMPORTANTI Alcohol blendedfuels called gasohol
(using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture,
which leads to fuel - oil separation'andformationof
acids dudng storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel
system of an engine while in storage. To avoid engine
problems, the fuel system shouldbe emptiedbefore
storage of 30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank, then
run the fuel out of the carburetorand fuel linesby
startingthe engine and letting it run untilit stops. Use
fresh fuel next season. See storage instructions for
additional information.Never use engine or carburetor
cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanentdamage
may occur.
STOPPING ENGINE
•To stop engine, release the throttle lever. Move the
On-Off switch to the off (STOP) position.
STARTING
COLD
NOTE: Check ©haln tension before starting!
1. Tum the on-off switch to the on "1"position.
2. Pull out the choke knob. The fast idle stays set
until the throttle is depressed, at which time the
red pin inside the choke lever retracts (idle
position).
CAUTION: Retain a secure gdp on the saw using the
foot and hand positionfor startingthe chain saw in a
safe manner.
3. Pump fuel pdmer until it is approximately ½ full
with fuel and increased resistance is felt. Proceed
with coldstarting instructions.
4. Slowly pull on starter gdp until rope encounters
some resistancefrom starter pulley. Next, pull
ropefirmly and rapidly in an upward motion. Guide
rope back into starter rather than lettingit snap
back.
5. Repeat rope pulls until engine attemptsto start,
usually2-3 pulls, no more than 5; then
immediatelypush in choke knob.
6. Once the engine is steadily running depress and
release the throttle lever to allow engine to operate ,
at idle speed. NOTE: Depressing (and then
releasing)the throttle lever releases the halfthrottleautomatic lock and the red indicatorpin on
the choke knob retracts.The engine continuesto
runat idle speed.
7. Shouldthe engine fail to start after several
repeated starting attempts, the engine has already
been "flooded"(too much fuel mixture in cylinder).
in this case, remove the spark plug and dry it. Set
the ignitionswitch to "stop"and the throttlelever to
fullthrottle.Crank engine by pullingthe starter
ropeseveral times to vent fuel mix and vapors
from cylinderand crankcase. Check spark plug
gap (.015-.020"); correct if necessary. Reinstall
spark plug;connect spark plug cap. Set ignition
2-CYCLE O|L
Craftsman 2-cycle, air-cooled engine oil is specially
blended with fuel stabilizers.If you do not use this
Sears oil, you can add a fuel stabilizer,such as
Craftsman No. 33500, to yourfuel mix.
FUEL STABILIZER
A fuel stabilizer is an acceptable a_f'emativein
minimizing the formation of fuel gum depositsdudng
storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline mixture in fuel
storagecontainer and mix well. Always followthe fuel
mix ratio found on the stabilizer container.Run engine
at least 5 minutes after adding stabilizerto allowthe
stabilizerto reach the carburetor. You do not have to
drain the fuel tank for storage if you are usingfuel
stabilizer. _
BAR AND CI_IAIN OIL
We recommend e special chain oil (low sling, high
tack) to lubricateyour bar and chain; consult your local
Sears retailer. Dudng chain saw operationsat
temperatures below freezing (00C/32*F), the chain oil
viscosityincreases creating an ovedcad to the
automatic oil pump. Overloadingresultsin damage to
the driver gear, pump mechanism, and bar and chain.
A specialcold-climate chain oil shouldbe used. Refill
chain oil each time you refuel. CAUTION: Never use
waste engine oil; it will damage the pump.
OIL PUMP
Your chain saw is equipped with an automaticoil
pump that pumps oil to the chain when the chain is
rotating. You may adjust the amountof oil pumped to
compensate for long bars and chainsor for extremely
hard or frozen wood. Adjust the flow rate by turningthe
adjustmentscrew. The adjustmentscrewis locatedon
the bottomof the saw below the markings+ - on the
same side as the bar and chain (Fig. 5). Turning

If you are unsuccessful[in starting the engine, consult
the Troubleshootingguide in your Craftsman chain

Beforefelling a tree, survey it carefully and answer
these questions:
1. In which directiondoes the tree lean?
2. Is the condition of the trunk sound, hollowor
partiallyrotten?
3. From which directionis the wind blowing?
4: What is the wind velocity? CAUTION: Wind
directionand velocitymay change. Be alert!
Fellingshould not be attempted in high winds.
5. Isthe crown (top) of the tree more dense and
heavieron one side?
These are factors and forces which will influencethe
line of fall and escape routes.
Survey the area; make sure that felled trees cannot
strikeany objectssuch as power lines, buildings,cars
and blockroadways or railroad tracks. Insure that
neither persons nor animals are within the danger
zone (measured distance away from tree that is 21,_
timesthe tree height).
Clear escape route by removingundergrowthlikelyto
intedere with es_c_....Be sure to warn othersby
shouting"TIMBER when e tree is about to fall. Bdef
each team member on properescape proceduresand
signals. Have visualcontactwith team members prior
to and during fellingoperation.Practice a "dryrun"
escape! Prior to fellingprepare the immediatesite and
the base of the tree by clearingaway undergrowthwith
an axe, not the saw. Undergrowthcan tangle up or
snag the saw chainresultingin serious injuryor saw
damage. Clean the trunkof brush and remove small
branches from the lower trunkwith a small axe.
Remove large buttressrootsfirst.Start by cuttingthe
largest buttressrooL Remove each by cuttingit
verticallyfirst,then horizontally(Fig. 7). Sina!! buttress
rootscan be removedwhen fellingis complete unless
they hamper the fellingprocess.
RGURE 7
NOTE: These basic rules apply to felting a single tree
or many. However, end additional organizingis
requiredwhen felling several trees. Preliminary
preparationmust be done outside the danger zone. Be
sure othersknow where you are and what you are
doingat all times.
CAUTION: Do not try to fell a tree along a line different
from its natural line of fail unlessyou have
considerableexperience.
Determinecarefully the correct line of fall. Clear two
safe exitpaths to the rear (clear away escape routes
for each member of the felling team). Do not place
toolsand equipmentin the path. Make your escape
routeat a 45 ° angle back and away from the line of fail
(Fig. S).
When felling, assume a balanced bodyposition(Fig.
8). Positionthe feet paralleland apart to obtain a
steady stance and stand at the side of the tree. Lower
the point of gravityby bendingthe knees (comfortably
arch your back). Keep the saw near the body, hold it
firmly with both hands,and lockthe thumbs under the
handlebar at all times.
FIGURE 8
CAUTION: Maintain good footing, body balance and
insurea safe escape path has been established.
Never fell a tree without making a proper felling notch
(undercut).
The next cut (Fig. 11) is called the felling cut (back
cut). Make itat least 2" higherthan the lower cut of the
fellingnotch by cutting horizontallyand parallelto the
fellingnotch. Do not cut throughto the felling notch.
Leave a "hinge"of uncutwood approximately 1/10 of
the tree diameter (Fig. 11).
WARNING: To avoid personal injury, do not cut
throughthe hinge! A properhinge prevents the tree
from possibly"sittingback"or "butt kicking"the back of
the stump,twistingoff the stump, or fa_tingprematurely
end uncontrolled.
CUI"I'ING FELLING NOTCH
Start felling by making a careful fellingnotch
(undercut) first (Fig. 9). This notch determines the line
of fall. Positionit at a dght angle. Cut the fellingnotch
to a depth of about '/_of the trunk diameter. It must be
wide enough and shouldnever be higherthan its
depth.
When fellinga large tree, drive wedges intothe felling
cut. Use only wooden or plasticwedges. Never use
steel or iron wedges whichcan cause kickbackand
damage to the chain. Wedges prevent the tree from
settlingback on the bar and help controlthe direction
of the fall towardthe fellingnotch (fig. 12).
RGURE 9
RGURE 12
Fellin
To make the felling notch, startwitITthe upper cut
facing the line of fail This is a directionalcut
downwards at an angle (Fig. 10, 1). Next, make the
lower felling notch cut. Cut horizontallyand straight
intothe tree until it meets the upper cut forminga
wedge (Fig. 10, 2).
SMALL TREES
If the trunkdiameter is smaller than the guide bar
cuttinglength, be carefulmaking the fellingcut and
formingthe hinge. Once the felling cut has been made,
place the buckingspike at the base line dghtbehind
the hinge, and do a fan cut (Fig. 13).
RGURE 10
RGURE 13
Directionof fa_=_
The exception is when the tree is on a slope;then the
lower cut should be on an upward angle to cut a
larger, more open wedge and to gain greater control
durirtgthe fall of the tree (Fig. 11).
The buckingspike is the toothed metal piece attached
to the front of the saw body and found to the left of the
bar. With the buckingspike teeth against the log firm
contactbetweenthe saw body and the log are
maintained.A fan cut is accomplishedby first
contactingthe teeth of the buckingspike to the log and
then, usingthe buckingspike as the pivot point,
rotatingthe bar through the log in a counterclockwise
direction.

determine whether you cut from the top down
(overbuck, Fig. 16) or from below up (underbuck,
Fig. 17).
8. Watch out for branches under tensionwhichcan
snap back. Tension mustbe removed before
these branches can be safely cut. Beware of
potentialkickbacksituations.
9. If large branches are to be used for firewood, cut
them to length while stillattached to the tree. This
is an easier and safer method than bucking
branches on the ground (Fig. 16 & 17).
10. If you tire during limbing, STOP! Rest, then
resume work.

The danger of kickbackis most prevalent during
limbingif the bar nose comes in contact with another
branch or the side of the tree (see "Kickback
Conditionsand Prevention'),
Professionalloggershave developed various safe,
efficientand effectivelimbingtechniqueswhich you
must follow.The followinginstructionsare a few of the
basic safe work habitsfor a chainsaw operatorwhile
limbingor removingbranchesfrom a tree.
1. Before startingto limb, be sure the branch is on a
safe side of the log, uphill,and on the side
oppositeof any potentialmotion the cut branch
mightmake (Fig. 14).

4. Bendthe knees slightly.Positionthe rightleg
behindthe leftside of the chain saw and the left
leg forward and outward away from contact range
of bar. Assume a comfortable stance with the feet
spreadapart. CAUTION: If you change position,
the bar must always be on the side of the tree

BUCKING (The cutting of • log Into sections):
1. Be alert to the stress and motionof logs. Always
positionyourself to prevent the rollingof a cut log
section or the stress forces withina log from
actingagainst you.
2. Never stand directlybehind the chain saw when
cutting.Stand to the left side of the cutting path of
the chain saw to reduce the chances of injuryfrom
kickback or a broken chain shootingbackwards
towards you (Fig. 18, 1).
3. Bend the knees slightly,Assume a comfortable
stance with the feet spread apart (Fig. 18, 2).
4. Keep the left elbow straightwhile cuffing (Fig. 18,
3).
5. Lock the thumb under the handlebar (Fig. 18, 4).
WARNING: Logsand branches may be under stress
or tension.Before cutting check to see if stress exists.
If stressdoes exists, start to cut on the right side of the
logor branch to prevent pinchingand possible
kickbacksituationsso that the branch does not whip
backand strike you.

RGURE 18
If the chain bar is pinchedwhile bucking, shut off
the engine immediately.
IMPORTANT! If the bar and chain become pinched,
do not try to wrench or twistthe bar free. Move the |og
intoanother position or lift up with a rod or lever (Fig.
21).

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS
The warrantyon this chain saw does not cover items
that have been subjected to operator abuse or
negligence.To receive full value from the warranty,
operator mustmaintain chain saw as instructedin this
manual.
All items in the Maintenance section of this manual
shouldbe checked at least once each season.
8.
1. SerVice more often when operating in dusty or
dirtyconditions.
2. Once a year you should replace the spark plug
and clean or replace the air filter. A new spark
plug and e clean air filter assure proper air-fuel
n_xtureand help your engine run better and |ast
longer.
Free hanging ends can be cut off without riskof
bar pinching. But ifthe wood is not to splitor tear,
make an undercut(underbucking,Fig. 20, 1) of
about 1/3 the depth of the logdiameter, then apply
the finishingcut (overbucking,Fig. 20, 2).

STORAGE TIPS
if possible, store your unit indoors and cover it to give
it protectionfrom dust and dirt. Do not use plastic.
Plastic cannot breath, which willallow condensationto
form and willcause your unitto rust. IMPORTANT!
Never cover chain saw while engine and mufflerare
stillwarm.
CARBURETOR ADJUSTMENT
To comply with emission regulations,the carburetor
mixtureis pre-set at the factory and can not be
adjusted without the proper tools. Any mixture
adjustment must be performedby a service center.
The idle speed can be adjusted.The idle speed set
screw is located on the top of the unit and to the left of
the spark plug. It is indicatedby the letter "T." To
adjust the idle speed, turn clockwiseto increaseand
counterclo<;kwiseto decrease idle speed. Idle speed is
2500 ± 100 RPM.
Prepare your chain saw for storageat the end of the
season or if the unit will not be used for 30 days or
more.
BEFORE STORING
1. Use soap and water to wipe d_qwnunit.
2. Be sure that all nuts, bolts,screws, and fasteners
are securely fastened. Inspectfor damaged or
worn pads. Replace if necessary.
ENGINE
It is important to prevent gum depositsfrom formingin
essential
fuel system parts such as the carburetor, fuel
J
fiter, fuel hose, or tank dunng storage. Alcohol
blendedfuels, such as gasohol, ethanol,or methanol,
can attract n_isture, which leads to separationand
formationof acids during storage. Acidic gas can
damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage.
Do not store gasoline from one season to the next.
Two-cycle mix ages quicklyand can cause engine
damage. Replace your gasoline containerif it startsto
rust. Rust or dirt in your gasolinewill cause engine
problems.
To avoid engine problems, the fuel system shouldbe
emptied before storage of 30 days or more.
Followthese instructions:
1. Drain the fuel tank
2. Start engine and let it rununtil the fuel lines and
carburetor are empty (The engine will stop.)
3. Use fresh gas next season.
4. If you use a fuel stabilizer,the gasolinecan be left
in the tank. CAUTION: Never store chainsaw
inside a buildingwith fuel in the tank! Fumes can
concentrate and possiblyreach a sourceof
ignition.Allow engine to cool before storage.
5. Remove spark plug.
