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 Just keep it sharp! I forget how long ago I bought this tool, and maybe it’s the previous, unimproved model I have, but it has been everything I needed. I have felled four trees of up to 16” diameter with it. An epic freeze killed two of them, each about 40 feet tall, just last year, and I cut them down this summer. To give you an idea of how well it works, my nextdoor neighbor didn’t know I had this saw and offered to let me borrow his gas chainsaw. He had a large tree to fell, too. So that Saturday I heard him trying to start his saw. I got mine out and cut down the two trees. I know how to climb a tree like an arborist, so I reduced each tree to small, manageable pieces as I cut it. I hadn’t bucked the trees into fireplace-sized pieces, but I had them both down by the time I finally heard the cursing end and the chainsaw start up next door. About 30 minutes later I heard his tree come down, all in one piece. He cut the main branches off the trunk and called it a day. I kept working until I had mine cut up and put up the saw. A little while later, my neighbor was at the front door: “Hey, I got my tree down, and I’m done with my saw for a while if you want to borrow it.” I answered, “No, thanks. I got my own saw a while back so used it.” “Really? Wow, I don’t know how you did, because I never heard a thing!” I like tools that are light, powerful, and get the job done with less effort than it takes to start a gas-powered tool. Also, the chain stops as soon as you let off on the trigger. For that reason this saw is a lot safer than a gas-powered saw. I feel safer climbing a tree (with ropes and safety harness) with it. OK, now, about the title: one thing I didn’t learn about from my arborist friend is chainsaw maintenance. Sharpening kits, including guides to help you get the angles right, are inexpensive, and following Youtube videos it is really easy to do it correctly. When the saw stops producing long, wide shavings and starts producing dust even when the chain tension is OK, it’s time to sharpen the blade. One guide even says that you should touch up a new blade before the first use. If you pay attention and keep the blade sharp, you will get more cuts per charge and the saw will vibrate less as you work. With less vibration, the saw will last longer. (It has stood up well to not-do-gentle use, but, still. less vibration will keep lots of bad things from happening so soon.) Keep it sharp and you’ll be amazed at how well it works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BATTERIES NOT GAS! I was skeptical about the torque, performance and durability when considering a battery-powered chainsaw over my many gas-powered saws. When I blasted through logs with the same power and precision as a gas-powered, PLUS the safety features associated with the electric nature of this tool, such as stopping the chain immediately after the trigger is stopped, have me sold on never going back to gas again. The batteries hold a surprising amount of power, usually tiring me out before exhausting the supply itself. I love my Greenworks saw and am now looking to replace my back-up saw with another battery-powered one from Greenworks. This company is awesome!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Tool I have an acre of property to maintain and I do all the work. The property is lined with a primitive hedgerow and many mature trees. On a regular basis branches and limbs come down after storms. I have used a gas chain saw for years. Saw work fine for several years then became hard to start. It took longer to get it started then to do the work I need it for. Im 71 and and tired of messing with the gas saw, so I thought id try a cordless one. all my woodworking and maintenance tools are cordless, so I thought Id go cordless with my property maintamince tools as well. I was very schepticle of a battery powered chainsaw. I didn't think it would have the power or durability. The gas saw have plastic bodies now, so the only difference is in what powers the saws. With the new technology in lithium batteries the Greenworks 16" chainsaw has plenty of power and is extremely durable. I had not properly maintained my property for about two years due to the gas saws problems with starting and some back problems. I got the saw about a month ago and used it non stop for a month. It works great. I mean great! had a problem in the beginning with the chain popping off twice. but that's because I didn't properly tension the chain after using it for a while. The chain stretches when it gets hot and needs to be tightened as you go (which it tells you in the manual, but who reads directions) now that that's figured out it works great. I have a 25' tree down that measures 14' at the base and the saw has flawlessly cut it up into 2' lengths. Saw when right through it. The 6AH battery lasts a lot longer than I thought and I have two 4 AH batteries as backup, so I run out of energy before my batteries do. You don't really need the two extra batteries, but I got them just because! I liked it so much that I now purchased the pole saw and hedge trimmer to do the small work. It a great line of tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great as a ground saw I bought this saw as a quiet alternative to my gas ground saws after purchasing (another name brand) battery powered top handle saw and being very impressed. It's a little louder than my (Other name brand) but less than half the cost out the door. It's nice not hearing the gas saws first thing in the a.m. This things got some good power and is really quite impressive.

Where is the bar oil resevoir and fill?

Asked by: seadog77
The reservoir can be found at the rear of the chainsaw. • Remove oil cap. Open the removable cover and then rotate the cover counterclockwise to remove it. • Carefully pour the bar and chain oil into the tank. • Wipe off excess oil and replace cap. • Repeat as needed. We recommend, use only a bar and chain lubricant with this product. It is designed for chains and chain oilers and is formulated to perform over a wide temperature range with no dilution required. This information can be found in the owner's manual.

Regarding just the saw itself (i.e., other than the battery and charger) what differences are there between this saw (Model 2009702 - 40V CORDLESS 16" CHAINSAW W/ 6.0 AH BATTERY and Model 2016802AZ - 40V BRUSHLESS 16" CHAINSAW W/ 4.0 USB BATTERY)?

Asked by: Rob62
Hello Rob62, These products are very similar in terms of performance. The 2016802AZ is, however, a brand new model while 2009702 was originally released a few seasons ago. 2009702 is a part of the Elite line and comes with a 6.0Ah battery which would produce a longer run time than the 4.0Ah battery that comes with model 2016802AZ.
