Safety instructions
General power tool safety warnings
Warning! Read all safety warnings and all
! instructions. Failure to follow all instructions may
result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term "power tool" in all of the warnings listed below
refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or battery
operated (cordless) power tool.
1. Work area safety
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark
areas invite accidents.
b. Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
2. Electrical safety
a. Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter
plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk
of electric shock.
b. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric
shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
c. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
d. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase
the risk of electric shock.
e. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a
cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric
shock.
f.
If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a Residual Current Device (RCD)
protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of
electric shock.
3. Personal safety
a. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment
of inattention while operating power tools may result in
serious personal injury.
b. Use personal protective equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce
personal injuries.
c. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is
in the off-position before connecting to power
source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the
switch or energising power tools that have the switch on
invites accidents.
d. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a
rotating part of the power tool may result in personal
injury.
e. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power
tool in unexpected situations.
f. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.
g. If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of these devices
can reduce dust related hazards
4. Power tool use and care
a. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power
tool for your application. The correct power tool will do
the job better and safer at the rate for which it was
designed.
b. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn
it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or
the battery pack from the power tool before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce
the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
5
d. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power
tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained
users.
e. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tools
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained power tools.
f. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in
accordance with these instructions, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to be
performed. Use of the power tool for operations
different from those intended could result in a
hazardous situation.
5. Battery tool use and care
a. Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of
battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with
another battery pack.
b. Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
c. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from
other metal objects, like paper clips, coins, keys,
nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can
make a connection from one terminal to another.
Shorting the battery terminals together may cause
burns or a fire.
d. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected
from the battery; avoid contact. If contact
accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid
contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid
ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
6. Service
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This will
make sure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.

Additional power tool safety warnings
!
Warning! Additional safety warnings for compact
chainsaws.
The intended use is described in this instruction manual. Do
not use the tool for purposes not intended; for example do
not use the tool to fell trees. The use of any accessory or
attachment or performance of any operation with this tool
other than those recommended in this instruction manual
may present a risk of personal injury.

Wear close fitting and protective clothing including a
safety helmet with visor/goggles, ear protectors, nonskid safety footwear, protective bib trousers and strong
leather gloves.

Always position yourself out of the path of falling
branches.

The safe distance between a branch to be felled and
bystanders, buildings and other objects is at least 2 1/2
times the length of the branch. Any bystander, building
or object within this distance is at risk from being struck
by the falling branch.

Pre-plan a safe exit from falling branches. Ensure the
exit route is clear of obstacles that would prevent or
hinder movement. Remember wet grass and freshly cut
bark is slippery.

Ensure someone is nearby (but at a safe distance) in
case of an accident.

Do not use the tool while standing in a tree, on a ladder
or on any other unstable surface.

Keep proper footing and balance at all times.

Hold the tool firmly with both hands when the motor is
running.

Do not let the moving chain contact any object at the tip
of the guide bar.

Start cutting only with the chain moving at full speed.

Do not attempt to enter a previous cut. Always make a
fresh cut.

Watch for shifting branches or other forces that could
close a cut and pinch or fall into the chain.

Do not attempt to cut a branch when the diameter of the
branch exceeds the cutting length of the tool.

Always remove the battery from the tool and place the
chain cover assembly over the chain when storing or
transporting the tool.

Keep the saw chain sharp and properly tensioned.
Check the tension at regular intervals.

Switch the tool off, allow the chain to stop and remove
the battery from the tool before carrying out any
adjustment, servicing or maintenance.

Only use genuine replacement parts and accessories.
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
chainsaw which could result in serious personal injury. Do
not rely exclusively upon the safety devices built into your
chainsaw. As a chainsaw user, you should take several
steps to keep your cutting jobs free from accident or injury.
Kickback is the 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 encircling
the chainsaw handles. With both hands on the
chainsaw, position your body and arm to allow you to
resist kickback forces. Kickback forces can be
controlled by the operator, if proper precautions are
taken. Do not let go of the chainsaw.

Do not overreach and do not cut above shoulder height.
This helps prevent unintended tip contact and enables
better control of the chainsaw in unexpected situations.

Only use replacement guide bars and chains specified
by the manufacturer. Incorrect replacement guide bars
and chains may cause chain breakage and/or kickback.

Follow the manufacturer's sharpening and maintenance
instructions for the saw chain. Decreasing the depth
gauge height can lead to increased kickback.
Safety recommendations for the chainsaw

We strongly recommend that first time users obtain
practical instruction in the use of the chainsaw and
protective equipment from an experienced user. Initial
practice should be completed sawing logs on a saw
horse or cradle.

We recommend that when carrying the chainsaw that
you make sure that the brake is engaged

Maintain your chainsaw when not in use. Do not store
your chainsaw for any length of time without first
removing the saw chain and guide bar which should be
kept immersed in oil. Store all parts of your chainsaw in
a dry, secure place out of reach of children.

We recommend you drain the oil reservoir prior to
storage.

Be sure of your footing and pre-plan a safe exit from a
falling tree or branches.
Use wedges to help control felling and prevent binding
the guide bar and saw chain in the cut.
Saw chain care. Keep the saw chain sharp and snug on
the guide bar. Ensure the saw chain and guide bar are
clean and well oiled. Keep handles dry, clean and free
from oil and grease.
Kickback can be caused by:

Striking branches or other objects accidentally with a tip
of the saw while the saw chain is moving.

Striking metal, cement or any other hard material near
the wood, or buried in the wood.

A dull or loose chain.

Cutting above shoulder height.

Lack of attention when holding or guiding the chainsaw
while cutting.

Over-reaching. Keep proper footing and balance at all
times and do not overreach.

Do not try to insert into a previous cut. As this could
cause kickback. Make a fresh cut every time.

We strongly recommend you do not attempt to operate
your chainsaw while in a tree, on a ladder or on any
other unstable surface. If you decide to do so, be
advised that these positions are extremely dangerous.

When cutting a branch that is under tension, be alert for
spring back so that you will not be struck when the
tension is released.
Avoid cutting:

Prepared timber.

Into the ground.

Into wire fences, nails. etc.

Into small sized brush and saplings because slender
material may catch the saw chain and be whipped
towards you, or pull you off balance.

Do not use your chainsaw above shoulder height.

Ensure someone is nearby (but at a safe distance) in
case of an accident.

If for any reason you have to touch the saw chain, make
sure your chainsaw is disconnected from the mains.

The noise from this product can exceed 80 dB(A). We
therefore recommend you take appropriate measures
for the protection of hearing.

10
Even with the application of the relevant safety regulations
and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual
risks cannot be avoided. These include:

Injuries caused by touching any rotating/moving parts.

Injuries caused when changing any parts, blades or
accessories.

Injuries caused by prolonged use of a tool. When using
any tool for prolonged periods make sure you take
regular breaks.

Impairment of hearing.

Health hazards caused by breathing dust developed

Warning! Never attempt to lock a switch in the on position.

Pruning trees (fig. H)
Make sure that there are no local by-laws or regulations that
would prohibit or control the pruning of the tree limbs.
Pruning should only be undertaken by experienced users
there is an increased risk of the saw chain (8) pinching and
kickback.
Before pruning consideration should be given to conditions
affecting the direction of fall including:

The length and weight of the branch to be cut.

Any unusual heavy limb structure or decay.

Surrounding trees and obstacles including overhead.

The wind speed and direction.

The branch being intertwined with other branches.
The operator should consider access to the tree limb and the
direction of fall. The tree branch is liable to swing towards the
tree trunk. In addition to the user bystanders, objects and
property below the branch will be at risk.
To avoid splintering, the first cut is made in an upward
direction to a maximum depth of one third the diameter of the
branch. The second cut is made downwards to meet the first.
Light duty cutting (fig. I)
Saw chain sharpening
How you should cut depends on how the log is supported.
Use a saw horse whenever possible. Always start a cut with
the saw chain (8) running and the spiked bumper in contact
with the wood. To complete the cut, use a pivoting action of
the spiked bumper against the wood.
If you are to get the best possible performance from the tool
it is important to keep the teeth of the saw chain sharp.
Guidance for this procedure is found on the sharpener
package. For this purpose we recommend the purchase of
the Black & Decker saw chain sharpening kit, available from
your Black & Decker service agents (cat. no. A6039).
When supported along its whole length:

Make a downward cut, but avoid cutting the earth as this
will blunt your saw chain quickly.
When supported at both ends:

First, cut one third down to avoid splintering and
second, cut again to meet the first cut,
Replacing worn out or damaged saw chains and guide
bars
When supported at one end:

First cut one third up to avoid splintering and second, cut
down to prevent splintering.
Replacement saw chains are available through retailers and
Black & Decker service agents( pt no A6158), replacement
guide bars are only available through Black & Decker service
agents (pt no 90517720). To avoid the risk of injury, use only
original Black & Decker chains and guide bars. Always use
genuine spare parts.
When on a slope:

Always stand on the uphill side.
Saw chain sharpness
When using a saw horse (fig. I):
This is strongly recommended whenever possible.

Position the log in a stable position. Always cut on the
outside of the saw horse arms. Use clamps or straps to
secure the workpiece.
Cleaning, maintenance and storage
Your Black & Decker tool has been designed to operate over
a long period of time with a minimum of maintenance.
