fuel to oil ratio
Have been using chainsaws for years and recently bought a 450II to complement by big Dolmar. First outing went great for about an hour cutting firewood up to 200mm diameter then suddenly just threw a chain. There was no stress or clamping by the limb. I needed to remove burrs before chain would refit the bar. Did it again trimming some bushes at home. Is this a common problem. Was my tensioning incorrect had about 5-8 mm lift on chain when pulled up by hand to check. Any advice would be great
Have never had this problem. can only suggest you get professional advice, maybe lack of oil as burring is not too common.
I have also had this problem. 5 to 8 mm of lift is too much. Should be tighter but still pull freely around bar. If chain comes off every burr on the back of the chain will carefully need to be removed. I use a dremel, else the chain will bind. Main problem for chain coming off is too much stretch from overheating due to insufficient oil and too lose to start with. Frequently check tension. Periodic cleaning of the bar and oil groves as they tend to block easily and run the chain dry
Why is the Husq. 450e saw only $359 in the US and $ 959 here???
