How to tension the saw chain correctly on your Stihl Chain Saw:

Regular tensioning of the saw chain improves the safety during use and reduces wear and damage to the chain. We therefore recommend that you check the chain tension and make any necessary corrections each time before you start work. During work with the chain saw, the chain becomes warm and therefore expands slightly. During manufacture, STIHL saw chains are "stretched" slightly in the factory, and this prevents excessive thermal expansion. Nevertheless, for your own safety, you must still tension it manually from time to time.

Most STIHL chain saws have an easy-to-use chain tensioner on the side, with which the chain can be tensioned in a matter of minutes. This is how it is done:

1. With the engine turned off, first loosen the securing screws of the chain cover with a combination wrench. To tension the chain, it is sufficient to only loosen these screws. Then turn the tensioning screw with the screwdriver end of the combination wrench

2. Now check whether the chain lies loosely on the bar. To prevent injuries, you should wear protective gloves when doing this. If the lower side of the chain hangs away from the bar, it is too loose and you must turn the tensioning screw further.

3. If the lower side of the chain does not hang away from the bar, but the chain can still be pulled away slightly, the tension is correct. You should also be able to lift the top side of the chain slightly. To prevent injuries from the sharp edges of the chain, you should wear protective gloves when doing this.

You can tension the chain quickly and easily with the Quick Chain Tensioning feature, with which many STIHL chain saws are equipped as standard. This is how you do it:

Loosen the chain sprocket cover above the wing nut. Turning the adjusting wheel above this anticlockwise reduces the chain tension; turning it clockwise increases the tension. When the chain sprocket cover is screwed down, the guide bar is automatically fixed in position.

When replacing the saw chain on your chainsaw, you should first scrape all dirt and deposits from the groove of the guide bar, since these can cause the chain to jump out of the bar. There is also a risk that such deposits soak up the chain lubricant before it can reach the bottom side of the guide bar, which is subjected to large stresses. This would result in overheating and excessive wear of the chain and the bar. You can remove these deposits with a small screwdriver or some other sharp object. Before making the first cut with a new chain on your saw, you should allow the chain to "run in" for a few seconds.

Safety Caution: Since the chain contracts slightly as it cools after use, your should never tension or replace the chain on your chainsaw while it is hot. This can result in serious damage to the guide bar or to the crankshaft of the engine. It is advisable to slightly reduce the chain tension when you finish work, particularly in frosty weather.

“Power tools” conjures up an image of ear-splitting drills and grinders. But this work is concerned with other sorts of tools: instruments, approaches, schemes, devices and methods (among many other synonyms) for tackling the differences in power that impede policies and institutions from achieving equitable natural resource management. A policy tool can be defined as a mechanism for influencing decisions and decision-making about natural resource management. Power tools are policy tools that address power asymmetries between marginalised and marginalisers. Regular scheduled servicing of your industrial power tools can help to prolong their life, giving you greater return on your industrial tool investment. We supply a vast range of branded industrial power tools and accessories to companies throughout the UK.

Everybody knows that powertools are often fast moving and when turned on, commence movement immediately. If a power tool is not properly held or used, fingers and hands can be chopped off instantly in a construction accident. The most important thing a worker needs to know before they even start using a powertool is how to turn it off.

In many types of businesses, hand and power tools are used every day as they make work easier and allow employees to be more efficient. Virtually all power tool accidents can be prevented. However, simple health and safety steps that could be followed to avoid a construction accident of this type are often ignored.

Older tools are more of a concern as they may not have safety features installed. If you regularly use power tools and the ones you are using are old, dated or worn, have you asked your employer for a more up-to-date version?

Failing to properly use and maintain electric-powered tools causes thousands of cuts, puncture wounds, amputations and electrocutions every year. A company called Sawstop in the USA has developed a technology that can distinguish between solid wood and a user's finger, allowing the cutting blade to stop in five milliseconds.

New technology is being developed all time to make power tools operate more intelligently and reduce personal injuries as a result of power tool construction accidents.
