Chainsaws & Pole Saws FAQS

What oil do I use with my chainsaw?

Our units use a standard bar and chain oil. You can purchase this from your local hardware store—no specific brand name is required.


Why is my chainsaw leaking oil?

All chainsaws will slowly “leak” oil in storage (mostly from it seeping off the chain). To prevent excessive leakage, store with as little oil left in the reservoir as possible, the chainsaws flat with a rag beneath them, and the pole saws upright with the motor head at the top. During first use, users should only fill the reservoir to roughly half full and check periodically to see if it needs to be refilled. Eventually, you will become accustomed to the amount of oil required for each job. This procedure will make it easier to store the unit as oil free as possible and reduce oil run off.


How large of a branch/log can I cut?

If you are looking to cut logs with one pass, the log needs to be about 2" smaller than the bar. However, there are many techniques to use a chainsaw for larger cuts.


What is the run time?

The run time of a chainsaw is measured in cuts per charge. The number of cuts per charge or “run time” that you receive would depend on the load acting on the saw (i.e., the thickness and type of wood being cut) as the chainsaw would use more battery power on tougher and thicker objects being cut.


How do I know if my chain is tensioned enough?

A correctly tensioned chain should only pull away from the bar enough to fit a dime (10¢) between the teeth and the bar. Chains should be tensioned before use. Check intermittently throughout each chore to make sure the chain is kept properly tensioned. ***DO NOT TENSION A CHAIN AFTER YOU HAVE FINSHED USING THE TOOL. HOT METAL EXPANDS. IF THE CHAIN IS TENSIONED WHEN HOT, THEN ALLOWED TO COOL, THE CONTRACTING METAL COULD POTENTIALLY DAMAGE THE CHAIN, THE BAR AND EVEN THE UNIT. WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT USE (OR AT LEAST UNTIL COOLED) BEFORE TENSIONING***


Can I use another brand of chain?

Yes. However, it must match the specifications of the original chain (gauge, pitch, and drive links). These specifications my be found inside your owner’s manual.


What file size do I use to sharpen the chain?

Our chains may be sharpened using a 5/32” round file.


Why isn’t my chain cutting?

If the wood is burning and/or smoking, this indicates that the chain is on backwards. Another reason could be that the chain is dull and needs to be sharpened or replaced. Replace the chain if: • The length of the cutting edges is less than 5 mm. • There is too much space between the drive links and the rivets. • The cut speed is slow • Sharpening the chain many times does not increase the cutting speed—this means the chain is worn.


Why does my chain keep falling off?

Chainsaw chains can come off due to multiple reasons such as worn-down bars, worn-down sprockets, and wrongly set chain tension. Please check the chain tension and condition of all parts prior to using. If anything is worn or damaged, replace the parts before using again. Replace the bar if: • the groove is not fit with the height of the drive links (which must never touch the bottom). • the inside of the guide bar is worn and causes the chain lean to one side.


Why isn’t my chainsaw turning on?

For chainsaws with an active chain brake, please ensure that it has not been accidentally engaged. If it has, simply pull it towards you and try starting the saw again. If the saw still won't start or your saw doesn't have an active chain brake, please make sure that the battery is fully charged and has been properly engaged in the saw prior to starting.


What is a pole saw?

Pole saws are basically stretched chainsaws with the controls and the motor head separated by a long pole. They tend to have shorter bars and chains than full size chainsaws and are primarily used for pruning and light lopping. Users should take basic, common safety precautions and follow proper operating procedure when using the units to avoid injury.


How should I hold my pole saw?

Always hold the unit firmly with both hands. Keep your left hand on the pole shaft and your right hand on the rear handle, so your body is to the left of the chain line. Never use a left-handed (cross-handed) grip, or any stance that places your body or arm across the chain line. Ensure that you maintain a proper grip on the unit whenever the motor is running. For best balance when using a pole saw, do not overreach. Always keep proper footing and balance. Practicing proper footing and balance ensures that you'll have the best control of the tool in unexpected situations. For further details, refer to your owner’s manual.


What safety precautions should be taken?

Only use pole saws for their intended purpose. Pole saws are great for pruning and trimming hard-to-reach branches. Think about where the branch being cut may fall—do not stand under the branch being cut. Try to keep the tree between yourself and the branch being trimmed (as a kind of shield from falling debris). Keep bystanders at least 50’ from the tree being worked-on. Always take your time. Start by removing long, heavy branches in stages, cutting off small sections to reduce the impact of any falling debris. Cut lower branches first so debris can fall more easily and not get stuck, causing a future hazard.


How thick of a branch can I cut?

Pole saws are typically used on branches less than 6” in diameter.


Can the pole saw be used for hedges?

Though the pole saw is capable of trimming hedges, a pole hedger would be more appropriate for the job and would leave a cleaner look.


Can you remove the poles and use this as a chainsaw?

No. This unit cannot be converted between a pole saw and chainsaw. However, some models allow you to remove the middle extension pole to shorten the unit by a few feet.


I know the handle cannot be removed, but can the pole saw be used on items near the ground?

Though not advised, this depends on the user's ability to maintain control at an awkward angle. The pole hedger trimmer is ideal for high level and hard to reach branches—it's not ergonomically suited for low cutting and extreme caution should be taken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 14.5 amp 18" corded chainsaw I recently purchased this chainsaw, and I have to say that it was one of the best purchases I have made. This saw works very well in cutting all kinds of wood. I have cut pine, oak, and birch with it so far and it has the power to go through all of them like butter. I have had this saw for about two weeks now, and I cut some wood every day with it. It has the power to push through it without bogging down. The chain that came in it is very durable. I haven't had to sharpen it yet. To be honest, I was skeptical at first, but now I am very pleased. Great alternative to a gas powered chainsaw. No pulling a cord to start it, over and over. No mixing gas and oil, and it is very quiet compared to the gas powered ones. Another great thing is that it has great safety features. The chain stops spinning as soon as the trigger is released. Awesome chainsaw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpected Power My gas saw would not start. I bought this just for tree pruning. I broke this out and what a surprise! It performed flawlessly with unexpected power. Admittedly you must be careful with a cord in the way but as long as your cord c as n reach, it will do the job. This tree was 34" across. No problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My review 18" electric chainsaw This is a very strong chainsaw. The side case is easy to remove and its a separate piece than the tightener so its easy to put back together. I have used it on six smaller trees and I huge tree so far. The only issues Ive had was the chain loosened twice, the side case loosened once and the chain came off once. Overall Im very happy and all those issues could have been avoided if I checked it each time I used it. Ive used other brands and this one is as good or better.

How do I tighten the chain?

Asked by: Bubbajack
Hello Bubbajack, ADJUSTING THE CHAIN TENSION • Stop the motor and disconnect from power supply before setting the chain tension • Slightly loosen the chain cover lock knob. • Turn the chain tensioning knob clockwise to tension the chain. NOTE: A cold chain is correctly tensioned when there is no slack on the underside of the guide bar, the chain is snug, and it can be turned by hand without binding. • Rotate the chain cover lock knob clockwise to secure. Re-tension the chain whenever the flats on the drive links hang out of the bar groove. NOTE: During normal saw operation, the temperature of the chain increases. The drive links of a correctly tensioned warm chain will hang approximately 1/16" (1.3 mm) out of the bar groove. NOTE: New chains tend to stretch. Check the chain tension frequently and tension as required.

I just got a new corded 18" saw, and it was cutting great the first day.. then the 2nd day it was barely cutting anything and the chain seemed dull. How could that happen, since it's new?? I checked the chain and it seems to be mounted correctly. Help!

Asked by: Harveyguy
Hello Harveyguy, Thank you for your question. Wear on a chains can occur for many reasons. For example excessive cutting, or a stretched chain can cause issues the 2nd day. Prior to use we advise that you check the chain tension. You also should check that the chain is on correctly. This information is inside the owner's manual. Hope this helps!

When I try to add bar and chain oil it does not go into the tank. I have tried a funnel and an oil injector. Nothing works the oil stays in the cap area. The saw works great, but I’m afraid that I will ruin it if I keep using it without oil in the tank. 

Asked by: Jimpal
Don't pull the cap out so that the string that keeps it in the reservoir brings up the other end of the string and blocks the hole.
