How to test an ignition

How to test an ignition:

1. Remove the top cover on the saw to expose the spark plug.

2. Remove the spark plug.

3. Place the spark plug wire onto the spark plug but do not install the spark plug into the cylinder, leave it dangling loose.

4. Hold the boot on the end of the spark plug wire with your hand and place the electrode tip of the sparkplug onto a metal surface on the saw (the cylinder for example). The spark plug should remain in the spark plug boot.

How to buy a chainsaw online

Contained in this guide is a framework to help you make an educated choice about what type of chainsaw will suit your needs. Questions you should ask yourself. Questions you should ask sellers. How to do your research so you can make the right decision. Safety information.

Picking a Saw

My first advice is that first time buyers should get a smaller, inexpensive saw to learn on before moving onto a pro size saw. Larger pro saws are more powerful and more dangerous, not to mention more expensive to fix if you make a beginner’s mistake.

Top handle saws are light and run short bars. They are designed primarily for cutting small limbs and branches, sometimes called limbing saws or arborist saws. They are suitable for cutting limbs, branches and small diameter trees (generally nothing over an 8″ diameter).

The quantity of wood you will be cutting is a major factor in what type of saw you should purchase. If you cut a small quantity, say a tree or two that’s blown down or a sick tree in the front yard, then you won’t require a more expensive professional quality saw. If you cut many cords a year of firewood, or use your saw on a daily basis a more reliable higher quality saw is a good idea and worth the extra money. Buying a pro quality saw greatly reduces your down time with mechanical failures and is much more reliable on a daily basis.

The type of wood you cut is a determining factor. Hardwoods will require a more powerful saw than comparable sized softwoods.

Weight is very important. Don’t buy a big displacement saw to cut one large tree and then use the same saw on little trees all day. Heavy saws will tire you out quickly and the more tired you get the danger level increases exponentially. When you’re tired is when accidents happen. As a general rule I try to use the lightest saw possible for the job.
