Follow instructions for lubricating, chain tensioning
Improperly tensioned or lubricated chain may either break or increase the chance for kickback.
Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and grease.
Greasy, oily handles are slippery causing loss of control.
• cutting plastic, masonry or non-wood building
Use of the chain saw for operations different than intended could result in a hazardous situation.
Causes and operator prevention of kickback:
Kickback may occur when the nose or tip of the guide
• bar touches an object, or when the wood closes in and pinches the saw chain in the cut.
Tip contact in some cases may cause a sudden reverse reaction, kicking the guide bar up and back towards the operator.
Pinching the saw chain along the top of the guide bar may push the guide bar rapidly back towards the operator.
Either of these reactions may cause you to lose control of the saw which could result in serious personal injury. Do not rely exclusively upon the safety devises built into your saw. As a chain saw user, you should take several steps to keep your cutting jobs free from accident or injury.
Kickback is a result of tool misuse and/or incorrect operating procedures or conditions and can be avoided by taking proper precautions as given below:
Maintain a firm grip, with thumbs and fingers
• the saw and position your body and arm to allow you
Kickback forces can be controlled by the operator, if proper precautions are taken. Do not let go of the chain saw.
Do not overreach and do not cut above shoulder

Additional Safety Recommendations
Decreasing the depth gauge height can lead to increased kickback.
All persons using this machine must read the user manual completely with extreme care.
The user manual must be included with the machine in the case of sale or loan to another person.
Precautions prior to machine use.
Never permit this machine to be used by any persons who are not perfectly familiar with the manual instructions.
Inexperienced persons must follow a training period operating on a saw horse only.
Check the machine with care before use each time, especially if it has been subject to saw only when standing on fixed, secure and level
Slippery or unstable surfaces such as strong impact, or if it shows any signs of malfunction.
Perform all operations described in the chapter
“Maintenance & Storage – Before each use”.
ENGLISH - 3
Repairs and Maintenance.
All the machine parts that can be replaced personally, are clearly explained in the “Assembly / disassembly” instructions chapter.
Where necessary, all other machine parts must be replaced exclusively by an Authorised Service Centre.
Clothing. (fig 4)
When using this machine the user must wear the following approved individual protective clothing : close-fitting protective clothing, safety boots with non-slip soles, crush-proof toe protectors and cut-proof protection, cut-proof vibration-proof gloves, protective goggles or safety visor, ear protection muffs and helmet (if there is any danger of falling objects).
Health precautions – Vibrations and Noise levels.
Avoid using the machine for long periods of time: the noise and vibrations can be dangerous causing irritation, stress, fatigue and hypacusia (hearing problems). Prolonged machine use exposes the user to vibrations that can generate “white finger phenomenon” (Raynaud’s Phenomenon), carpal tunnel syndrome and similar disturbances.
Health precautions – Chemical agents.
Avoid all chain oil contact with skin and eyes.
Health precautions - Heat.
During use, sprocket and chain reach very high temperatures, take care not to touch these parts while hot.
This machine produces an electromagnetic field during operation. This field may under some circumstances interfere with active or passive medical implants. To reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury, we recommend persons with medical implants to consult their physician and the medical implant manufacturer before operating this machine.
Transport and storage precautions. (fig 12)
Each time the work area is changed to another location, disconnect the machine from the mains supply and activate the chain brake lever. Mount the guide bar cover guard each time before transporting or storage. Always carry the machine by hand with the bar facing backwards, or when transporting the machine in a vehicle, always attach it securely to prevent damage.
Kickback reaction. (fig 14)
The kickback reaction consists of a violent upwards-reverse action of the bar towards the user. This generally occurs if the upper part of the bar nose (called the “kickback danger zone”) comes into contact with some object, or if the chain is blocked in the wood. Kickback can make the user loose control of the machine provoking dangerous and even fatal accidents. The chain brake lever and other safety devices are not sufficient to protect the user against injury: the user must be well aware of the conditions that can provoke the reaction, and prevent them by paying very close attention according to experience, together with prudent and correct machine handling (for example: never cut several branches at a time because this can cause accidental impact on the “kickback danger zone”

C. SAFETY EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
Your machine is equipped with a device
(fig.1) that when deactivated, stops the switch from being pressed thus
N.B.: When the chain brake is activated, a safety switch cuts off all current to the motor. is held will start the product.
CHAIN BRAKE ACTION ON SWITCH RELEASE
Your machine is equipped with a device that blocks the chain immediately as soon as the switch is released; If this device should not work at any time, the machine must NOT be used and must be taken to an Authorised
This machine is equipped with a chain catcher
(fig.4) located under the sprocket. This mechanism is designed to stop the backward chain movement in the case of chain breaking or derailing. These situations can be avoided by ensuring correct chain tension (Refer to chapter “D. Assembly/disassembly”).
FRONT HAND GUARD / CHAIN BRAKE LEVER
The front hand guard
(fig.2) is designed to prevent your left hand from coming into contact with the chain (on condition that the machine is held correctly according to instructions). The front hand guard also acts as a chain brake, including a device that blocks the chain in less than 0.15 of a second in the case of kickback. The chain brake is released when the front hand guard is pulled backwards and clicked in position (the chain is able to move). The chain brake is activated when the front hand guard is pushed forward (the chain is blocked). The chain brake can be activated using the left wrist by pushing forwards, or when the wrist comes into contact with the front hand guard as a result of kickback.
When the machine is used with the bar in horizontal position, for example during tree felling, the chain brake offers less protection.
REAR HAND GUARD
This acts to protect
(fig.5) the hand in the case of chain breaking or derailing.
D. ASSEMBLY / DISASSEMBLY
BAR AND CHAIN ASSEMBLY
Assembly methods change according to the type of your machine- so please take care to refer to the illustrations and machine type marked on the label. Take great care when assembling to ensure this is performed correctly.
1. Check that the chain brake is not activated. If so, deactivate it.
2a. Unscrew the bar retaining nut and remove the drive sprocket cover.
2b. Unscrew the bar retaining knob and remove the drive sprocket cover.
3 Position the chain over the bar, starting at the nose sprocket, fitting into the bar guide groove.
Ensure that the sharp side of the cutting teeth face in a frontward direction on the upper part of the bar. Wear Gloves.
4. Ensure the chain tensioner pin is as far back towards the drive sprocket as possible. Mount the bar on the bar retaining screw and the chain tensioner pin and position the chain over the drive sprocket. Replace the drive sprocket cover, ensuring the drive teeth of the chain are engaged in the drive sprocket and in the guide groove.
5a. Screw the bar retaining nut by hand until loosely tightened.
6a. To tension the chain, screw the chain tensioner
5b. Screw the bar retaining knob until loosely tightened.
6b. To tension the chain, screw the chain screw in a clockwise direction using the spanner/ screwdriver provided. To reduce tension screw in an anti-clockwise direction when performing this operation, tensioner outer knob in a clockwise direction.
To reduce tension screw in an anti-clockwise direction. (when performing this operation,
( keep the bar nose raised upwards) keep the bar nose raised upwards)
7. Tension the chain until the tension is correct. Pull the chain away from the bar and ensure gap measures approx 2-3mm
8a. Tighten the bar retaining nut using the spanner/ screwdriver provided
8b. Tighten the bar until securely tightened.
Tensioning the chain too tightly will overload the motor and cause damage, insufficient tension can provoke chain derailing, whereas a chain tightened correctly provides the best cutting characteristics and prolonged work life. Check the tension regularly because the chain length tends to stretch with use (especially when the chain is new; after the first assembly, the chain tension must be checked after 5 minutes machine operation); in any case do not tighten the chain immediately after use, but wait until it cools down.
In cases where the loosened chain needs to be adjusted, always unscrew the bar retaining nut / knob before adjusting the chain tensioning screw / knob; adjust the tension and tighten the bar retaining nut / knob accordingly.

E. START-UP AND STOPPING
grip both handles firmly, release the chain brake lever whilst ensuring hand is still on front handle, press and maintain the switch block pressed in, then press the switch
(at this point the switch block can be released).
The machine will stop whenever the switch is released. In the case where the machine does not stop, activate the chain brake, disconnect the cable from the main line socket and take the machine to the Authorised Service Centre.
F. BAR AND CHAIN LUBRICATION
Insufficient lubrication will provoke chain breaking and can cause serious and even fatal
Never use waste oil because this is this harmful to health, the machine and the environment. Make sure injury.
Bar and chain lubrication is performed by an automatic pump.
Refer to “Maintenance & Storage” for indications on ensuring that the chain oil is sufficiently distributed.
that the oil is suitable for the temperature of the environment where the tool will be used: For temperatures under 0°C certain oils become thicker, overloading the pump and causing damage. Contact your Authorised Service Centre for advice on oil choice.
Choice of chain oil
Always use new oil only (special type for chains) with adequate viscosity: the oil must adhere well and guarantee good running properties in both winter and summer. If chain oil is not available, EP 90 transmission oil can be used.
Filling oil tank
Unscrew the oil tank cap, and fill the tank taking care not to spill any oil (if this occurs clean the machine carefully) and then screw the cap back on tightly.
G. MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE remove the plug from the mains.
In cases where work environments are
Chain sharpening (When necessary)
If the chain does not cut correctly, or requires hard bar pressure against the wood, and if the sawdust is particularly dirty or dusty, the operations described must be performed more frequently than mentioned in the instructions.
Before each use
Check that the chain oil pump functions correctly: direct the bar towards a clear surface at a distance of about 20 centimetres; after the machine has run for about a minute, the surface should show clear traces of oil
Check that excessive strength is not needed for activating and deactivating the chain brake. Also check that it is not activated too easily and that it is not blocked. Then check chain brake function as follows: release the chain brake, grip the machine correctly and start up the machine, activate the chain brake by pushing the front hand guard forward with the left wrist or arm but without removing the hand from the handle
. If the chain brake is working correctly, the chain should be stopped immediately.
Check that the chain is sharpened correctly, in good working condition and that the tension is correct. If the chain is irregularly worn, or if the cutting teeth are only 3 mm long, the chain must be replaced
Clean the air vents regularly to prevent motor
Check that the switch and switch block function correctly (to be performed with the chain brake released): press the switch and the switch block and ensure that they return to idle position as soon as they are released; check that it is impossible to press the switch without activating the switch block.
Check that the chain catcher and the right hand guard are in correct condition without any visible faults such as damaged material. very fine, this is a sign that it is not sharpened correctly. If the cutting action produces no sawdust, this means the cutting edge has been worn completely and the chain is pulverising the wood during cutting. A well-sharpened chain crosses through the wood without effort or pressure and produces large long wood shavings.
The cutting side of the chain is composed of the cutting link
with a cutting tooth
and a cutting limit gauge
. The difference between these determines the cutting depth; a file guide and a
4mm diameter round file are needed to obtain good sharpening results; Follow the instructions below:
Once the chain has been mounted and the tension is correctly adjusted, and the chain brake is activated, position the file guide perpendicular to the bar as shown in the illustration teeth at the angle shown
, filing the cutting
, always working from the interior towards the exterior, lessening the pressure during the return stage (it is very important to follow the instructions perfectly: excessive or insufficient sharpening angles or an incorrect file diameter will increase the risk of kickback.) To obtain higher precision on side angles, it is advisable to position the file so that it exceeds the upper cutter by about 0.5 mm. File all the teeth on one side first, then turn the machine over and repeat the operation.
Make sure that after sharpening operations, all teeth are the same length and that the height of the depth gauge is 0.6 mm lower than the upper cutter: check the height using a proper template and file (with a flat file) all protruding parts, rounding off the front part of the depth gauge
, paying attention to not file the kickback protection tooth
Every 2-3 hours of use
Check the bar condition, if necessary clean the lubrication holes
and the guide grooves
carefully; If the groove is worn or shows signs of
Every 30 hours use.
Take the machine to the Authorised Service Centre for general revision and control check on brake components. deep notching, it must be replaced. Clean the drive sprocket regularly and check that it has not been subject to excess wear
. Lubricate the nose sprocket with bearing grease through the hole shown in the illustration
Store the product in a cool dry place and out of reach of children. Do not store outdoors.

H. CUTTING TECHNIQUES
(fig.1) When using the machine, prevent:
- cutting in conditions where the trunk could split during cutting (wood under pressure, dry dead trees, etc): sudden splitting can be very dangerous.
When felling a tree, the aim is to have the tree fall in the most convenient position for the following limbing and bucking operations. (Avoid trees falling on top of other
- the bar or the chain from becoming blocked in the cutting notch: if this should occur, disconnect the machine from the main electricity supply and try to raise the trunk using an appropriate tool as a lever; do not attempt to free the machine by shaking or pulling as this could cause damage or injury.
- situations that can lead to kickback reactions.
- using the product above shoulder height
- cutting wood with foreign objects e.g. nails
(fig.1) During machine use:
- When cutting on sloping ground, always work uphill of the trunk to avoid being hit if the trunk should roll downhill.
- When felling trees, always finish the job: a partially cut tree could break and fall.
- At the end of each cutting operation the user will notice a considerable change in the strength necessary for controlling the machine. Great care must be taken not to loose control. Below is a description of two different types of cutting operation:
Cutting action by pulling the chain (from top to bottom)
can lead to dangerous sudden movement of the machine towards the trunk with consequential loss of control. Where possible, use the spiked bumper during cutting operations.
Cutting action pushing the chain (from bottom to top)
will lead to the danger of a sudden movement of the machine in the direction of the user, with the risk of hitting the user, or an impact of the “kickback danger zone” on the trunk resulting in strong kickback; extreme care must be taken when cutting in this manner.
The safest method for using the machine, is to block the log on a sawhorse, cutting from top to bottom, on the portion outside the sawhorse.
trees: Felling trees that are entangled with other trees is a very dangerous operation).
First of all decide which is the best direction for the tree to fall by evaluating the following: objects or other plants around the tree, the inclination, the curve, wind direction, and greatest branch concentration. Take into account dead or broken branches that may break off during felling creating a further danger risk.
During tree felling operations in critical conditions, always remove ear protection immediately after cutting operations to be able to listen for unusual noises and any warning signals.
Eliminate any branches that interfere with the job (fig.8), starting from top to bottom, and then, always keeping the trunk between the user and the machine eliminate the more difficult branches afterwards, piece by piece.
Eliminate all plants that interfere with work operations and control the area for possible obstacles (rocks, roots, ditches,etc.) when planning the retreat path (to follow during tree fall); Refer to the illustration (fig.9) for the directions to be maintained (A. predicted tree fall direction. B. Retreat path. C. Danger zone).
FELLING CUTS (fig.10)
In order to ensure that the user has complete control over the tree fall, the cutting instructions are as follows:
The cut that controls the fall direction of the tree is to be executed first: First of all cut the UPPER PART of the directional notch on the side the tree must fall. Remain on the right hand side of the tree and cut using the chain pull method; then cut the LOWER PART that must meet the end of the upper part. The depth of the directional notch must be
4 of the trunk diameter, with an angle of at least
Spiked bumper use.
Where possible, use the spiked bumper to ensure safer cutting action: plant it in the bark or surface of the trunk in order to maintain more control over the machine.
Below are descriptions of typical cutting procedure to be adopted for specific situations. However, these should be assessed each time to calculate whether the method is most suitable or not, In order to use a method with the least possible risk.
Trunk on the ground.
(Risk of touching the ground with the chain once the bar has passed trough the trunk).
Cut from top to bottom through the whole trunk. Towards the end of the cut, proceed very carefully to prevent the chain from hitting the ground. If it is possible, cut 2/3 of the trunk, roll it over, and cut the remaining third from top to bottom to limit the risk of the chain touching the ground.
Trunk supported at one end only (Risk of trunk breaking during cutting action).
Begin the cut from underneath for about 1/3 of the diameter, and then finish the cutting action from the top to meet the undercut.
Trunk supported at both ends. (Risk of pinching the chain).
Begin the cut from above for about 1/3 of the diameter, and then continue from underneath to meet the overcut.
Trunk laying on a slope.
Always stand on the uphill side of the log. When ‘cutting through’, to maintain complete control, release the cutting pressure near the end of the cut without relaxing your grip on the chainsaw handles. Do not let the chain contact the ground.
45° between upper and lower cut. The meeting point between the two sides of the notch is called “directional cut line” This line must be perfectly horizontal at right angles (90°) to the felling direction.
The felling cut that provokes the tree fall, is performed at 3 to 5cm above the lower part of the directional felling cut line, finishing at a distance of 1/10 of the trunk from the notch. Remain on the left hand side of the tree and cut using the chain pulling method and the spiked bumper.
Check that the tree does not move in a direction other than that predicted for the fall. As soon as possible insert a felling lever or wedge into the cut. The uncut part of the trunk is called the “hinge”, as it is intended to guide the tree as it falls; in cases where the cuts are not sufficient, not straight, or have been cut through completely, the tree fall cannot be controlled (extremely dangerous!). For this reason the various cuts must be performed with great precision.
When cutting operations are completed the tree will begin to fall. Where necessary help tree fall using wedges or felling levers.
Once the tree has been felled, the trunk must be limbed: in other words, the branches are removed from the trunk. Do not underestimate this operation because the large majority of kickback accidents occur during this stage. For this reason pay close attention to the position of the bar nose during cutting operations and always work on the left hand side of the trunk.
Never attempt to fell a tree if you do not have the necessary experience, and in any case never fell trees that have trunks with a diameter larger than the length of the bar! This operation is reserved for expert machine users with adequate equipment.

The declared vibration total value may also be used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.
The vibration emission during actual use of the power tool can differ from the declared total value depending on the ways in which the tool is used
Operators should identify safety measures to protect themselves that are based on an estimation of exposure in the actual conditions of use (taking account of all parts of the operating cycle such as the times when the tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to the trigger time).

EN 61000-3-11 Compliance statement
Depending on the characteristics of the local electricity supply network, use of this product may result in short voltage drops at the instant of switching on. This may influence other electrical equipment e.g a momentary dimming of a lamp. If the
Mains impedance Z
max of your electricity supply is less than the value shown in the table (applicable to your model) then these effects will not occur. The value of the network impedance may be determined by contacting your electricity supply authority
