IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Carrying Saw
WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State
of California to cause cancer or
birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created
by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals
known (to the state of California)
to cause cancer, birth defects, or
other reproductive harm. Some
examples of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based
paints
• crystalline silica from
bricks and cement and
other masonry products
• arsenic and chromium
from chemically-treated
lumber
Your risk from these exposures
varies, depending on how often
you do this type of work. To reduce
your exposure to these chemicals:
work in a well ventilated area, and
work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks
that are specially designed to filter
out microscopic particles.
KICKBACK
WARNING: 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 lightning fast 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
injury to user.
Saw Maintenance and Kickback
Safety
This saw has a low-kickback chain and reduced kickback guide bar. Both items reduce
the chance of kickback. Low-kickback saw
chain is a chain which met the kickback
performance requirements of ANSI B175.1.
Kickback can still occur with this saw.
Follow maintenance instructions in this
manual. Proper cleaning of saw and chain and
guide bar maintenance can reduce chances
of kickback. Inspect and maintain saw after each use. This will increase the service
life of your saw. Note: Even with proper
sharpening, risk of kickback can increase
with each sharpening.
Follow assembly instructions on page 11. Do
not remove front hand guard. Do not replace
front hand guard with substitute.
The following steps will reduce the risk of
kickback.
• Use both hands to grip saw while saw
is running:
- For chain saw, use both hands to grip
saw while saw is running. Use firm
grip. Thumbs and fingers must wrap
around saw handles.
- For polesaw, use one hand to grip
the handle and the other hand to grip
the pole. Use firm grip. Thumbs and
fingers must wrap around pole and
handle.
• Keep all safety items in place on saw.
Make sure they work properly.
• Chain saw - do not overreach or cut
above shoulder height.
• Polesaw - do not overreach or extend
arms above shoulder height.
• Keep solid footing and balance at all
times.
• Stand slightly to left side of saw. This
keeps your body from being in direct
line with chain.
• Do not let guide bar nose touch anything when chain is moving (see Figure
1).
• Never try cutting through two logs
at same time. Only cut one log at a
time.
• Do not bury guide bar nose or try
plunge cut (boring into wood using
guide bar nose).
• Watch for shifting of wood or other
forces that may pinch chain.
• Use extreme caution when reentering a
previous cut.
• Use low-kickback chain and guide bar
supplied with this chain saw. Only replace these parts with chains and guide
bars listed in this manual.
• Never use dull or loose chain. Keep
chain sharp with proper tension.

An extension cord should not be used
unless absolutely necessary. Use of
improper extension cord could result in a risk of fire, electric shock or
electrocution.
a. Two-wire cords can be used with
2-wire or 3-wire extension cords.
Only round jacketed extension cords
should be used, and we recommend
that they be listed by Underwriters
Laboratories (U.L.). If the extension
is to be used outside, the cord must
be suitable for outdoor use. Any cord
marked for outdoor use can also be
used for indoor work. The letters
“W” or “WA” on the cord jacket
indicate that the cord is suitable for
outdoor use.
b. An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or American
Wire Gauge) for safety, and to prevent loss of power and overheating.
The smaller the gauge number of
the wire, the greater the capacity of
the cable; that is, 16 gauge has more
capacity than 18 gauge. When using
more than one extension to make up
the total length, be sure each extension contains at least the minimum
wire size.

battery pack should be fully charged in
3 to 9 hours.
2.
After normal usage, your battery
pack should be fully charged in 3 to 9
hours. If the battery pack is run-down
completely, it may take up to 9 hours
to become fully charged. Your battery
pack was sent from the factory in an
uncharged condition. For best performance charge battery until red LED
turns off. Allow the battery to cool
down 30 minutes before charging after
using the saw. NOTE: A hot battery
placed in the charger will not charge.
DO NOT charge the battery pack in an
air temperature below 40°F (4,5 °C) or
above 105°F (40,5 °C). This is important and will prevent serious damage to

If the receptacle and temperature are
OK, and you do not get proper charging contact DESA Power Tools.
The battery pack should be recharged
when it fails to produce sufficient
power on jobs which were easily done
previously. DO NOT CONTINUE using product with its battery pack in a
depleted condition.
To prolong battery life, avoid leaving
the battery pack on charger for extended periods of time (over 30 days
without use). Although overcharging is
not a safety concern, it can significantly
reduce overall battery life.
The battery pack will reach optimum
performance after being cycled 5 times
during normal usage. There is no need
to run the batteries down completely
before recharging. Normal usage is
the best method of discharging and
recharging the batteries.

before contacting saw chain with log.
When starting a cut, place moving
chain against wood. Hold saw firmly
in place to avoid possible bouncing or
skating (sideways movement) of saw.
Guide saw using light pressure. Do not
force saw. The motor will overload and
can burn out. It will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was
intended.
Remove saw from a cut with saw running. Stop saw by releasing trigger.
Make sure chain has stopped before
setting saw down.
Practice until you can maintain a
steady, even cutting rate.

WARNING: When felling a tree,
be aware of your surroundings. Do
not endanger any person, strike
utility lines, or cause property
damage. If tree strikes utility lines,
contact utility company at once.
WARNING:
• Avoid kickback. Kickback
can result in severe injury or
death. See Kickback, page 5,
to avoid risk of kickback.
• Do not fell a tree without
ample skill or expert help.
• Keep children, animals, and
bystanders away from area
when felling a tree.
• If two or more persons
perform bucking and felling
operations at the same time,
provide ample distance
between operations. Provide
distance of at least twice the
height of tree being felled.

Before felling, inspect tree. Make sure
there are no dead limbs or branches that
may fall on you. Study natural lean of
tree, location of larger branches, and
wind direction. This will help you
judge which way tree will fall.
Clear work area around tree.
Plan and clear a retreat path before
felling. Make retreat path opposite to
planned direction of fall of tree and at
45° angle (see Figure 14).
Remove dirt, stones, loose bark, nails,
staples, and wire from tree where you
will make felling cuts.
Stay on uphill side when felling tree.
Tree could roll or slide downhill after
falling.

Felling Procedure
A) Felling Notch
B) Felling Cut
1.
Follow directions below to create a felling
notch.
1. Make lower notch cut as close to
ground as possible. Hold saw so guide
bar is horizontal. Cut 1/3 the diameter
of tree trunk (see Figure 15). Note:
Always make this horizontal lower
notch cut first. If you make this cut
second, tree can pinch chain or guide
bar.
2. Start upper notch cut the same distance
above first cut as first cut is deep.
Example: If lower notch cut is eight
inches deep, start upper notch cut eight
inches above it. Cut downward at 45°
angle. The upper notch cut should meet
end of lower notch cut (see Figure
15).
3. Remove tree trunk wedge created by
notching cuts.

4.
Make felling cut two inches higher than
lower notch cut and on opposite side of
tree (see Figure 15). Keep felling cut
parallel to lower notch cut.
Cut towards notch.
As felling cut nears hinge, tree should begin to fall. Note: If needed, drive wedges
into felling cut to control direction of fall.
If tree settles back and pinches chain,
drive wedges into felling cut to remove
saw. Only use wedges made of wood,
plastic, or aluminum. Never use wedge
made of steel. This could cause kickback
and damage to chain.
When tree begins to fall, quickly
• remove saw from felling cut
• release trigger to turn saw off
• put saw down
• exit area using retreat path
WARNING: Do not cut all the
way through tree. Leave about
two inches of tree diameter uncut
directly behind felling notch (see
Figure 15). This uncut portion acts
as a hinge. The hinge helps keep
tree from twisting and falling in
wrong direction.
WARNING: Avoid kickback.
Kickback can result in severe injury
or death. See Kickback to avoid risk
of kickback.
WARNING: When cutting limb
that is under tension, use extreme
caution. Be alert for wood springing back. When wood tension is
released, limb could spring back
and strike operator causing severe
injury or death.
Limbing is removing branches from a fallen
tree. Make sure your footing is firm. Keep
feet apart. Divide your weight evenly on both
feet. Do not remove larger limbs under tree
that support log off ground. Remove each
limb with one cut (see Figure 16). Clear cut
limbs from work area often. This will help
maintain a safe work area.
Make sure you start your cut where limb
will not pinch saw during cutting. To avoid
pinching, start cut on freely hanging limbs
from above limb. Start cut on limbs under
tension from under limb. If pinch occurs, turn
saw off, lift limb, and remove saw.
WARNING: Be alert for falling
overhead limbs. Watch your footing
while exiting area.

WARNING: Avoid kickback.
Kickback can result in severe injury
or death. See Kickback to avoid
risk of kickback.
2.
WARNING:
• If on slope, make sure log
will not roll down hill. Secure
log by using wooden stakes.
Drive wooden stakes into
ground on downhill side of
log. Stand on uphill side of
log while cutting. Log may
roll after cutting.
• Never try cutting through
two logs at same time. This
could increase the risk of
kickback.
• While cutting log, never hold
log with your hand, leg, or
foot.
• While cutting log, never
allow another person to hold
log.
• Turn off and unplug saw
before moving from one
place to another.
Bucking a log is cutting a log into sections.
Make sure your footing is firm. Keep feet apart.
Divide your weight evenly on both feet. When
possible, raise log or section off ground. Do
this by using limbs, logs, chocks, etc.
Make first cut on underside of log (see
Figure 18). Use top of guide bar to
make this cut. Cut 1/3 through diameter
of log. This cut will keep section from
splintering when cut.
Make second cut directly above first
cut. Cut down to meet first cut. This
cut will keep log from pinching guide
bar and chain.
2nd Cut

splintering when cut.
Make second cut on underside of log,
directly under first cut. Use top of guide
bar to make this cut. Cut up to meet first
cut. This will keep log from pinching
guide bar and chain.
When cutting through log, maintain control by
reducing cutting pressure near end of cut. Do
not relax your grip on chain saw handles. Do
not let moving chain touch ground. Ground
will dull moving chain. After cutting through
log, release trigger to turn saw off before
moving saw.
Follow directions below to buck a log.

TRIMMING A TREE (PRUNING)
1st Cut
Trimming a tree is the process of cutting
limbs from a living tree. Make sure your
footing is firm. Keep feet apart. Divide your
weight evenly on both feet. Follow directions
below to trim a tree.
1. Make first cut six inches from tree trunk
on underside of limb. Use top of guide
bar to make this cut. Cut 1/3 through
diameter of limb (see Figure 20).
2. Move two to four inches farther out
on limb. Make second cut from above
limb. Continue cut until you cut limb
off.
3. Make third cut as close to tree trunk as
possible on underside of limb stub. Use
top of guide bar to make this cut. Cut
1/3 through diameter of stub.
4. Make fourth cut directly above third cut.

CARE OF GUIDE BAR
Uneven bar wear causes most guide bar problems. Incorrect sharpening of chain cutter
and depth gauge settings often cause this.
When bar wears unevenly, it widens guide
bar groove (see Figure 30). This causes chain
clatter and rivet popping. Saw will not cut
straight. Replace guide bar if this occurs.
Inspect guide bar before sharpening chain.
A worn or damaged guide bar is unsafe. A
worn or damaged guide bar will damage
chain. It will also make cutting harder.

Severe injury or death could occur from body contact with moving chain.
6.
WARNING: Cutting edges on
chain are sharp. Use protective
gloves when handling chain.
Keep chain sharp. Your saw will cut faster
and more safely. A dull chain will cause
undue sprocket, guide bar, chain, and motor
wear. If you must force chain into wood and
cutting creates only sawdust with few large
chips, chain is dull.
