GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK ~~ REDUCE THE CHANCE OF KICKBACK
Kickback is a dangerous reaction that can lead to seriousin- — = ‘1. Recognize that kickback ean happen. With a
jury. Do not rely only on the safety devices provided with
- your saw. As a chain saw user, you must take special safety
| precautions to help keep your cutting jobs free from acci-
ent or injury.
A KICKBACK WARNING
- {Kickback can occur when the moving chain con-
|tacts an object at the upper portion of the tip of
{the guide bar or when the wood closes in and
pinches the saw chain in the cut. Contact at the
upper portion of the tip of the guide bar can
cause the chain to dig into the object, which
stops the chain for an instant. The result is a |
lightning fast, reverse reaction which kicks the
guide barup and back toward the operator. If the
— |saw chain 1s pinched along the top of the guide
[bar the guide bar can be rapidly driven back to-
{ward the operator. Either of these reactions can
|cause loss of saw control which can result in seri-

Never let the moving chain contact any object

Keep the working area free from obstructions
. such as other trees, branches, rocks, fences, stumps,
“etc. Figure 2. Eliminate or avoid any obstruction
that your saw chain could hit while you are cutting
through a particular log or branch. |
- Keep your saw chain sharp and properly ten-
sioned. A loose or dull chain can increase the chance
of kickback to occur. Follow manufacturer's chain
$ ening and maintenance instructions. Check
. tension at regular intervals with the engine stopped,
never with the engine running. Make sure the bar
clam nuts are securely tightened after tensioning
e chain.
Begin and continue cutting at full throttle. If
the chain is moving at a slower speed, there is greater
chance for kickback to occur. |
Cut one log at a time.
Use extreme caution when re-entering a pre-
vious cut.
Do not attempt plunge cuts.
Watch for shifting logs or other forces that could

AVOID REACTIVE FORCES
Pinch-Kickback and Pull-In occur when the chain
- is suddenly stopped by being pinched, caught, or by
contacting a foreign object in the wood. This sudden
sto ping of the chain results in a reversal of the chain force
used to cut wood and causes the saw to move inthe opposite
direction of the chain rotation. Pinch-Kickback drives .
the saw straight back toward the operator. Pull-In pulls
the saw away from the operator. Either reaction can result
in loss of control and possibly serious injury.
To avoid Pinch-Kickback:
1. Be extremely aware of situations or obstrue-
tions that can cause material to pinch the top ofor
otherwise stop the chain, —-

PREPARING YOUR SAW FOR USE
A FUEL SAFETY |
1. Use only recommended fuel mixtures.
2. Mixand pour fuel outdoors and where there are
no sparks or flames,
.. Use a container approved for fuel.
4. Do not smoke or allow smoking near fuel or the
tool or while using the tool.
Wipe up all fuel spills before starting the engine.
6. Move at least 10 feet away from the fueling site
‘before starting the engine.
- 7. Stop the engine before removing the fuel cap.
~~ Allow the engine to cool before refueling.
; 8. Empty the fuel tank before storing the tool. Use
up fuel left in the carburetor by starting the en-
gine and letting it run until it stops.
9. Store unit and fuel in an area where fuel vapors
cannot reach sparks or open flames from water
heaters, electric motors or switches, furnaces,
etc.
B. FUEL MIXTURE
e Your unit is powered by a two-cycle en-
gine which requires a fuel mixture of reg-
ular unleaded gasoline and a 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 the recom-
