The chainsaw must be used only by one person at a time. All other persons must stay
clear of the chainsaw’s area of swing. Children and pets in particular must be kept well
away at all times.
The saw must not be touching anything when it starts up.
Hold the chainsaw firmly in both hands when working with it.
The chain saw must not be operated by children and young people. The only exceptions
to this prohibition are young persons of 16 years and over who can use the chain saw
under supervision as part of their training. Lend the saw only to those persons who are
familiar with this type of chainsaw and know how to handle it. Always pass on the
operating instructions together with the chainsaw.
Make sure the chain saw is stored in a place inaccessible to children.
The saw may be operated only by persons who are rested and in good health, i.e. in a
good physical condition. If you start to tire, have a break in time. The chainsaw should not
be used after the consumption of alcohol.
Never expose the chainsaw to rain or bad weather. Make sure there is enough light at the
place of work. Do not use power tools in the vicinity of combustible liquids or gases.
If the chainsaw is not being used for a while, it must be set aside in such a way that no
other person is endangered.
Before making a cut, always set the claw stop before you start to saw.
Remove the chainsaw from the wood only with the saw chain still running. Anyone who
saws without a stop can be pulled forwards.
Never use the chainsaw when standing on a ladder, in a tree or in any other instable
places. Do not saw with one hand.
The power cable must always be behind the saw operator.
The power cable must always lead away from the rear of the chainsaw.
Use only original accessories.
Chainsaws used outdoors must be connected up to an earth-leakage circuit-breaker.
Do not overload your power tools. They run best and safest within given range of capacity.
Always use the correct power tool. Do not use low-powered chainsaws for heavy jobs.
Use the cable only for its proper purpose. Never carry your electric tool by its cable. Do
not use the cable to pull the plug out of the socket. Protect the cable from heat, oil and
sharp edges.
Extension cables out doors.
Use only authorized and accordingly labelled extension cables out of doors.
Use a strong support when sawing converted timber and thin branches (saw-horse, Fig.
7b). Do not stack the timber and do not have it held by a second person or with your foot.
Logs must be secured in position.
On sloping ground, always work facing upwards.
When cross-cutting always set the claw stop against the timber you want to saw (see Fig.
7b).
Always set the claw stop before cross-cutting. Only then switch on the chainsaw and start
sawing into the wood. Pull the chainsaw upwards at the rear and lead the direction with
the front grip. Use the claw stop as a fulcrum. To reposition for further cutting, interrupt the
sawing process and exert a slight pressure on the front grip. Pull the saw back a little,
position the claw stop further down the cut and pull up the rear grip (see Fig. 7a).
Pull the saw out of the wood only when the saw chain is running.
If you carry out several cuts, switch off the chain saw in-between.
Plunge cuts and horizontal cuts may only be carried out by professionals (high risk of kickback, see Fig. 8).
For horizontal cuts, position the smallest possible angle. This requires extreme caution, as
the claw stop cannot be applied in this case.

If the chain gets stuck when sawing with the upper side it may be thrust towards the
operator. For this reason you should saw wherever possible with the bottom side, as the
chainsaw will then be thrust away from the body towards the wood (see Fig, 9 and 10).
Pay extra attention when cutting splintered wood. Sawed off pieces of wood may be
catapulted in any direction (risk of injury!)
Do not use the chainsaw to remove nails or similar objects.
When lopping off branches, the chain saw should be supported wherever possible against
the trunk, Do not cut with the tip of the guide bar (risk of kick-back, see Fig. 8).
Leave branch lopping work should be carried out by trained personnel! Risk of injury!
Pay special attention to branches under tension. Do not cut through freely suspended
branches from underneath.
Never stand on the trunk when loping off branches.
The chainsaw should not be used for forest work, i.e. for felling and lopping off branches in
the forest. Because of the cable connection the saw operator does not have the necessary
mobility and his safety is not guaranteed!
Always stand to the side of the tree being felled.
When the tree is being felled, watch out for falling branches when stepping back.
On slopes the saw operator should stand to the upper or left or right side the trunk or lying
tree, never to the bottom side.
Watch out for trunks rolling towards you. Kick-back!
The power saw is likely to recoil if the tip of the guide bar (especially the top quarter)
accidentally touches wood or any other solid objects. In this case the saw will move
uncontrolled and will be hurled towards the operator at full power (risk of injury!).
When working with the chain saw, protective gloves, suitable shoes, leg protectors, eye
protectors and ear protectors should be used.
If the work involves any risk of head injury, a safety helmet must be worn When cutting
down trees and cutting and cutting off branches of felled or fallen trees. in addition a face
protector should be worn.
Always pull the plug from the socket outlet before attempting to check or adjust the chain
or to correct some fault and whenever moving one workplace to another.
Never switch on the chain saw unless you have a firm hold of the tool. a secure footing
and are sure that the guide bar and saw chain are not touching anything.
Always hold the saw with both hands (right hand on rear handle, left hand on handle (2).
Never saw above shoulder height, while standing on a ladder or in a tree or in any other
insecure position.
When sawing timber that has split, take particular care that no small pieces of wood are
broken off and thrown by the saw chain.
During breaks, the saw should be laid down in such a way that there is no risk of injury to
anyone from the saw chain.
The chain saw should never be lent to or be allowed to come into the hands of persons
who are not familiar with the use of such a tool. The operating Instructions should also go
with the saw.
6 KICKBACK
In order to prevent kick-back, please follow these safety instructions:
 Never start cutting with the tip of the guide bar!
 Never cut with the tip of the guide bar! Be careful, when continuing cuts you are already
working on!
 Always start cuts with the chainsaw already running!
 Make sure that the saw chain is always properly sharpened.
 Never cut through more than one branch at a time! When lopping off branches, be careful
not to touch any other branches.

When cross-cutting, pay attention to trunks standing very close to each other. If possible
use a saw-horse.
7 TRANSPORTING THE CHAINSAW
Before transporting the chainsaw, always remove the plug from the power socket and slide the
chain guard over the rail and chain. If several cuts are to be performed with the chain saw, the
saw must be switched off between cuts.
8 BEFORE STARTING UP






The voltage and current supply must comply with the ratings on the type plate.
Before commencing work, always check that the chainsaw works properly and is safe to
operate.
Check also that the chain lubrication and the oil gauge are in good working order (see Fig.
4). When the oil lever is approx. 5 mm from the bottom mark, you must top up with oil.
When the oil level is higher you can work without worry.
Switch on the chain saw and hold it above the ground. Be careful not allow the chainsaw
to touch the ground. For safety reasons it is best to keep a clearance of at least 20 cm. If
you now see growing traces of oil, the chain lubrication system is working correctly. If
there are no traces of oil at all, try cleaning the oil outlet (Fig. 2, C), the upper chain
tensioning borehole and the oil duct, or contact your Customer Service. (Be sure to read
the section “Filling in chain oil and chain lubrication” on this point).
Check the chain tension and retention, if necessary (see the section “Tensioning the saw
chain” on this point).
Make sure the chain brake is working properly (see also the section “Releasing the chain
brake”).
9 ASSEMBLY
9.1
Fitting the guide bar and chain
If the chain saw is already connected to the power supply: Pull the plug
from the socket outlet. Wear protective gloves whenever doing any work on
the saw chain.
Important: The front finger guard (3) must always be in the top (vertical) position (Fig. 5).
The guide bar and saw chain are supplied separately. To assemble, first unscrew the lock nut
(5) and remove the sprocket cover (18). The guide bolt (17) must be in the centre of the guide.
If necessary, adjust the chain tensioning with the chain wheel (16).
To prevent injury on the sharp cutting edges, always wear gloves when
assembling, tensioning and checking the chain.
Before assembling the guide bar with the saw chain, check the cutting direction of the teeth!
The running direction is marked with an arrow on the sprocket cover (18). To determine the
direction of cut, it may be necessary to turn over the saw chain (4). Hold the guide bar (7)
vertically with the tip pointing upwards and put on the saw chain (4), beginning at the tip of the
bar.

POWXG1007
EN
Then assemble the guide bar with the saw chain as follows:
 Place the guide bar with the saw chain on the chain wheel (16) and guide bolt (17).
 Place the saw chain round the chain wheel (16) and make sure it is correctly mounted (see
Fig. 1, A).
 Place the cover (6) on top and tighten gently with the lock nut (5). Now the saw chain has
to be correctly tensioned.
9.2
Tensioning the saw chain
Always pull the plug out of the power socket before doing any work on the
chainsaw!
Wear safety gloves!
Make sure the saw chain (4) is inside the guide groove of the guide bar (7) (Fig. 1a)!
Turn the outer Knob clockwise until the saw chain is correctly tensioned, then rotate the inside
knob (5) to block the guide bar in that position.
While the inside knob is being tightened, the guide bar must then be pushed upwards.
Check the chain tension again (see Fig. 3). Do not tension the chain too tightly.
When cold, it should be possible to lift the chain in the middle of the guide bar approx. 5 mm.
Tighten the lock nut (5) securely.
When warm, the saw chain will expand and slacken and there is a danger of it jumping off the
rail altogether. Re-tension if necessary.
If the saw chain is re-tensioned when hot, it must be loosened again when the sawing work
has been completed. Otherwise, the contraction which takes place as the chain cools would
result in excessively high tension.
A new saw chain requires a running-in period of approx. 5 minutes. Chain lubrication is very
important at this stage. After running in, check chain tension and re-tension if necessary.
9.3
Filling in chain oil (Fig. 4)
To prevent dirt getting inside the tank, clean the oil tank cap (14) before opening. Check the
contents of the oil tank during sawing work by checking the oil gauge (15). Close the oil tank
cap tightly and wipe away any spills.
9.4
Securing the extension lead (Fig. 6)
Only use extension leads suitable for outdoor use. The cross section of the cable (max. length
of extension cord: 75 m) must be at least 1.5 mm². Secure the chainsaw flex to the extension
lead by inserting the extension lead into the strain relief gap of the housing.
Extension leads longer than 30 m will reduce the performance of the chainsaw.
9.5
Chain lubrication
To prevent excessive wear, the saw chain and guide bar must be evenly lubricated during
operation.
Lubrication is automatic. Never work without chain lubrication. If the chain runs dry, the entire
cutting apparatus will quickly become severely damaged. It is therefore important to check
both chain lubrication and the oil gauge every use (Fig. 4).
Never use the saw when the oil level is below the “Min.” mark.
 Min.: When only approx. 5 mm of oil is visible at the lower rim of the oil gauge (15), you
must top up with oil.
 Max.: Top up with oil until the window is full.

POWXG1007
9.6
Checking the automatic lubrication
Before commencing work, check the automatic chain lubrication and oil gauge. Switch on the
chain saw and hold it above the ground. Be careful not to allow the chain saw to touch the
ground. For safety reasons it is best to keep a clearance of at least 20 cm. If you now see
growing traces of oil, the chain lubrication system is working correctly. If there are no traces of
oil at all, try cleaning the oil outlet (Fig 2, C), the upper chain tensioning borehole (E) and the
oil duct, or contact your Customer Service.
9.7
Chain lubricants
The service life of saw chains and guide bars depends to a large extent on the quality of the
lubricant used. Old oil must not be used! Use only environment-friendly chain lubricant. Store
chain lubricant only in containers which comply with the regulations.
9.8
Guide bar
The guide bar (7) is subjected to especially severe wear and tear at the nose and the bottom.
To avoid one-sided wear and tear, turn the guide bar over every time when you sharpen the
chain.
9.9
Chain wheel
The chain wheel (16) is subjected to especially high wear and tear. If you notice deep wear
marks on the teeth, the chain wheel must be replaced. A worn chain wheel curtails the service
life of the saw chain. Have the chain wheel replaced by a specialist dealer or your Customer
Service.
9.10
Chain guard
The chain guard must be clipped onto the chain and sword as soon as the sawing work has
been completed and whenever the chainsaw has to be transported.
9.11
Chain brake
In the event of kick-back, the chain brake (3) will be actuated via the front finger guard. The
front finger guard is pushed forwards by the back of the hand and this causes the chain brake
to stop the chain saw, or rather the motor, within 0.15 s (Fig. 5, I).
9.12
Releasing the chain brake (Fig. 5)
To be able to use your chain saw again, you must release the saw chain again. First, switch
off the chainsaw. Then push the front finger guard (3) back into the vertical position until it
locks in place (Fig 5, H). The chain brake is now fully functional again.
9.13
Sharpening the saw chain
You can have your saw chain sharpened fast and correctly by specialist dealers, from whom
you can also obtain chain sharpening equipment to enable you to sharpen the chain yourself.
Please follow the corresponding operating instructions.
Take care of your tools. Keep your tools sharp and clean to enable you to work well and safely.
Follow the maintenance regulations and the instructions for changing tools
10 STARTING UP
Always wear safety goggles, ear muffs, protective gloves and heavy-duty
work clothes!
Use the saw only with approved extension cables with the prescribed insulation and
connections designed for outdoor use (approved rubber-sheathed cables) which fit the
chainsaw plug.
The chain saw is equipped with two safety switches, requiring the use of both hands.
Copyright © 2016 VARO
P a g e |9
www.varo.com
POWXG1007
EN
The chainsaw works only when one hand holds the front grip (2) and the other hand actuates
the switch on the rear grip (1).
If the chainsaw does not run, the chain brake must be released at the front finger guard (3). Be
sure to read the sections “Chain brake” and “Releasing the chain brake” on this point.
After switching on, the chainsaw will run immediately at high speed.
10.1
To switch off
Release either the ON/OFF switch (13) on the rear grip or the other switch (2) on the front grip.
The release of ON/OFF switch results the stop of the chainsaw within 1 sec., and heavy
sparkling. This is normal and safe for the proper operation of the chainsaw.
After working with the chainsaw, you should always: Clean the saw chain and guide bar and
replace the chain guard.
10.2
Chainsaw protection
Never use the chainsaw in the rain or in damp conditions.
If the extension cable is damaged, pull the plug out of the power socket
immediately. Never work with a damaged cable.




Check the chainsaw for damage. Before using your tool again, check the safety devices or
any slightly damaged parts to ensure that they are in good working order.
Make sure the moving parts are working correctly.
All the parts must be correctly assembled and meet all the conditions required to ensure
that the chainsaw works correctly.
Any damaged safety devices and parts must be properly repaired or replaced immediately
by a Customer Service workshop, unless there are instructions to the contrary in these
operating instructions.
10.3
Notes on working practice
Kick-back (Fig. 8).
You can avoid accidents by not sawing with the tip of the guide bar as this may cause the saw
to rear up suddenly.
Always use the complete safety equipment and clothes when working with the saw.
Kick-back is an upward and/or backward movement of the guide bar which can occur if the
saw chain at the tip of the guide bar encounters an obstruction.
Make sure your work-piece is firmly secured. Use clamps to stop the work-piece slipping. This
also makes it easier to operate the chainsaw with both hands.
Kick-back causes the saw to behave uncontrollably and thus brings with a slack or blunt chain.
A poorly sharpened chain increases the risk of kick-back. Never saw above shoulder height.
11 OPERATION - TIPS ON CHAIN SAW USE
11.1
Sawing up wood (Fig. 7a, 7b)
To saw up wood, please observe the safety regulations and proceed as follows:
 Make sure the wood to be sawed cannot slip.
 Clamp short pieces of wood in place before sawing
 Saw only wood or wooden objects.
 When sawing, make sure that no stones or nails are touched as these could be thrown out
and damage the saw chain.
 Avoid bringing the running saw into contact with wire fences or the ground.
Copyright © 2016 VARO
P a g e | 10
www.varo.com
POWXG1007
EN
 When lopping off branches, support the chainsaw as far as possible and do not saw with
the tip of the guide bar.
 Watch out for obstacles such as tree stumps, roots, ditches and hillocks as these could
cause you to fall.
Remember!
The chain saw must be running before it comes into contact with the wood.
11.2
To switch on:
Press the safety lock-off (2) and ON/OFF switch on (13).
Place the lowest claw (Fig. 4, J) on the wood. Raise the chain saw by the rear grip (1) and saw
into the wood. Move the chain saw back a little and place the claw further down.
Be careful when sawing splintered wood as pieces of wood may be ripped off.
11.3
Wood under tension
Fig. 11a: Top side of under tension
Danger: Tree will rear up!
Fig. 11b: Bottom side of trunk under tension
Danger: Tree will move downwards!
Fig. 11c: Thick trunks and high tension
Danger: Tree will move suddenly and with immense force!
Fig. 11d: Both sides of trunk under tension
Danger: Tree will move sideways.
11.4
Felling trees
To fell trees, observe all the safety regulations and proceed as follows:
Remember!
Danger zone: Falling trees can bring down other trees with them. The danger zone is therefore
twice the length of the tree being felled (Fig. 12).
Felling trees is dangerous and requires practice. If you are a beginner or
inexperienced, do not try to teach yourself but seek professional training
(Fig. 13).
Falling direction:
 First estimate the direction of fall, taking into account the centre of gravity of the crown and
the wind direction. The chain saw must be running before it comes into contact with the
wood. Switch on the chain saw. Saw an undercut in the tree in the direction of fall and
then make a horizontal cut (back cut) on the side opposite to the undercut.
 Make the undercut: This will give the tree a direction and guidance.
 Check the direction of fall: If you have to correct the undercut, always re-cut over the
entire width.
 Call now “Timber!”
 Only now make the back cut, which must be higher than the sole of the undercut. Insert
wedges in time.
 Leave the bridge in place as it will function as a hinge. If you cut through the bridge, the
tree will fall randomly.
 Fell the tree by driving a wedge into the back cut, not by sawing through it .
 When the tree falls, step back and watch the crown.
 Wait for the crown to stop swinging. Do not continue working under branches which have
got stuck.
When the chain saw is used to cut trees that exceed its power limits the chain can get stuck. If
the chain gets jammed, release it using a wooden wedge.
Copyright © 2016 VARO
P a g e | 11
www.varo.com
POWXG1007
EN
Do not fell trees:
 If you can no longer distinguish details within the danger zone, e.g. owing to fog, rain,
snow drifts or twilight.
 If the direction of fall cannot be reliably estimated owing to wind or gusts of wind. Felling
work on sloping ground, black ice, frozen or dewy ground is safe only if you can get a firm
foothold.
12 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Always pull the plug out of the power socket before doing any work on the
chainsaw!




Keep the cooling vents on the motor housing clean and unobstructed at all times.
Only the maintenance work described in these operating instructions may be carried out.
Any other maintenance work must be carried out by our Customer Service.
Do not modify the power saw in any way as this could jeopardize its safety.
Should the chainsaw fail despite our careful manufacturing and inspection procedures
have it repaired by an authorized Customer Service work-shop.
