Oct 02, Replace the bar and purchase a new Stihl chain and you will not have any more problems from it.
Touch up the chain between tanks of gas and use good bar stumpclearing.bar and one more thing, watch out for rocks. While cutting out a stump for a custom the other day I rocked a chain, the soft Oregon steel just rolled the point of the chisel down. Dec 21, It is best to work at hip height with the chainsaw close to your body, feet apart.
Stand to the left of the tree trunk and work from the base of the tree upwards toward the tree top, removing limbs as you go. Work with both a pulling chain and pushing chain. If possible, rest the chainsaw on your hip or on the tree trunk as you saw. Jul 10, Once the front notch is cut, you can then make the back cut with your chainsaw.
The back cut is what disconnects the tree from the stump and creates a hinge for the tree to fall. The width of the back cut should be about 10% of the diameter of the tree trunk.
Stop cutting when you’re a few inches away from the notch. 2. Inspect the tree for crossed branches or those rubbing together.
Cut out these branches at their base.
Use a pruning saw for branches thicker than 1 inch in diameter and pruners for thinner. Jun 27, Cut a wedge on the same side as the tree will fall Our first cut was horizontal, about halfway through the tree (sometimes 2/3 if it’s small). Allow the chainsaw to work the cut; do not work it in a sawing motion. The next cut is at a downward angle above the first cut, about 60 degrees or so, at a depth so the two cuts stumpclearing.bar When trimming the stump to the ground make sure to apply the right amount of pressure with the chainsaw.
Apply too little pressure, and you’ll never get through the tree and end up ruining the blade. But applying too much pressure can result in binding the chainsaw blade or kick-back, possibly causing injury. Keep firm pressure, and move slowly.
Apr 18, I can see that would work very well. The best thing for cutting down overgrown shrubbery is a pole saw.
Then use a sawzall or chain saw if you are taking it to the ground.
