Helpful Tips for Chainsaw Maintenance


If you have trees on your property that need to be cut down or limbed, you're going to want to have a chainsaw that cuts easily and safely. With some basic maintenance measures, you can keep your chainsaw running strong for many years to come. If your chainsaw is giving you any trouble, you'll want to bring it to a reputable repair expert who can promptly return it to excellent condition at a fair cost. Here are five helpful tips for keeping your chainsaw clean and running strongly.

Clean the Bar

You'll want to clean all the grime and plant debris from the bar and bar groove. This can probably be done with just an old rag, but compressed air might also come in handy.

Replace/Clean Air Filter

If you use your chainsaw often, you should replace the air filter each year. If the filter isn't too dirty, you could just carefully wash it with soap and water.

Clean the Chain

Because you'll be using ammonia, you'll want to find a well-ventilated location. Turn the knob to loosen the chain. Remove the chain and place it in a gallon of water with one cup of ammonia. Let it soak for twenty minutes. Then, remove the chain, scrub it clean, and be sure it is fully dry prior to lubrication.

Clean the Carburetor

You can clean carb parts in the same fashion as the chain. Twenty minutes in the ammonia solution will help to clean the diaphragm, needle valves, and cover plate. After soaking them, they should be scrubbed and dried prior to reassembly.

Clean the Spark Plug

A dirty spark plug can reduce your chainsaw's performance. Carbon tends to build up on the spark plug, but can easily be removed with a soft wire brush. Stihl recommends replacing the plug after 100 hours of use.
