Simple Chainsaw Maintenance 101


Here are some simple checks that will give you the opportunity to keep the chainsaw in a perfect condition. These tips work for both electric and gas machines.


Firstly, check your chain. Carefully inspect it to see for wear and if the chain is properly sharpened along its length. A chain in bad condition can cause you a lot of troubles.

Many users ignore the saw teeth. If you don’t maintain them they’ll barely perform the job they need to do. This will not only reduce work flow, but may expose the user to some hazardous situations. Worn out saw teeth will cause you to push the chainsaw more and therefore increase the danger of accidents. Clean the saw teeth from any dust or wood residue on a daily basis.

Properly adjust the chain and always check if it is properly tightened. A loose chain is one of the most frequent reasons for chainsaw accidents.

The chainsaw’s spark plugs are one of the most vital components, because without them the chainsaw wouldn’t work. Check them whenever you have the opportunity in order to avoid any problems.

Pull cords must always be kept in excellent order. Problems with them can easily be overlooked, but they are a vital component of any chainsaw so you must keep them in a proper order.

You should quickly check other areas as well. For instance check the oiler if it is working as it is supposed to.

These are just the simplest maintenance checks and they can be performed even by inexperienced users. If you run into bigger problems, don’t try to fix them by yourself, but instead search for an expert’s advice. Thousands of peoples are injured every year, because of chainsaw accidents and performing these simple checks can significantly reduce the chances of receiving an injury by your chainsaw.
