Making sure the chain of your chainsaw has proper tension is very important. Hey, I’m Rob North, and today I’m going to show you howto adjust the tension on your chainsaw.

I highly recommend that you check the tensionon your chain prior to each use. The first step is loosening the bolts that lock down the clutch plate. This will allow the bar to move a bit.

Then take a screwdriver or the scrench that came with the saw,put it in the saw groove, and rotate the chain one complete rotation. Make sure that the tension is even all the way around the barand that it’s snug. But not so tight that it hangs up. With that done, you can tighten up the clutch plate bolts.
Now, a few ground rules for keeping your chain sharp. First, if you dig this thing in the dirt,it’s going to get dull almost instantly. Second, keep notice of the size of the wood chipsthat are coming from your new chain. As the sawdust gets finer, it’s either time for a new oneor to get that one sharp. To remove the chain for sharpening or replacement,just take the bolts off the clutch plate with the scrench. Take off the bar and remove the chain. To put it back on, reverse the steps.
