Auto Chainsaw Oiler – The chainsaw chain needs to be oiled frequently to prevent over heating and breakage due to friction that a chain experiences. The automatic oiler provides a constant flow of oil on to the chain (as well as bar) in modest quantities through a discharge valve. The oil is kept in a independent reservoir and should be checked either prior to or right after each use.
Antivibration – The anti-vibration feature reduces the jolt of the impact to the user coming from the saw in the course of operation (especially helpful for those prolonged duration jobs). Chainsaws outfitted with anti-vibration handles are fitted with springs or rubberized buffers. Pro-longed vibration can certainly cause discomfort, handling issues, not to mention injury.
Bar-Tip guard – A bar-tip safeguard is used to avert chain saw kickback . Kickback is a common safety consideration amid chainsaw users. This can occur in the event the nose of the chainsaw comes into contact with a hard object or the chain gets pinched and results in the saw to kickback towards the owner. Numerous chainsaw users forego employing a bar-tip guard due to the fact that it limits the cutting region of the bar by 1″ to 3″ inches.
1. Standard safety, many wrap around grips consist of a chain break system that ceases the chain almost instantly whenever the left-hand strikes the guard.
2. The handle also allows for improved control and handling, permitting the user to adequately operate the saw. The trigger lock feature is another safeguard characteristic that stops the blade immediately in case the saw is released or even fumbled. A button or switch located on the grip needs to be depressed for the chainsaw to function, as soon as the button is released the saw ceases to function.
CARB Compliant – California Air Resources Board-Certified, CARB, apply to two-cycle motors of gasoline operated chain saws. These saws create air pollution and also the emission of poisonous fumes. The rules were put in place by the California Clean Air Plan in combination with EPA regulations. California’s CARB requirements are more rigid than EPA’s laws and they are for handheld as well as non handheld motors.
The Motor – The chainsaw engine is composed of a piston, cylinder, connecting rod, crankshaft, carburetor and magneto. The chainsaw engine is impressive considering it creates 1 horse power for every single pound of engine weight. The engine is air cooled and consequently doesn’t need a radiator, water pump along with water, which naturally would add a significant amount of weight.
Engine displacement is a term utilized to measure the size of the motor. You will discover the engine sizes in cubic centimeters, shortened to “cc” or cubic inches may also be chosen as a way of measuring.
Gas chainsaw engine sizes vary from below 30cc to over 70cc’s.
The Chain – The chain operates inside a groove that moves all round the chainsaw bar, cutting teeth are attached to the external part of the chain. Chain speeds range from 3,000 to 7,000 fpm (ft. a minute). A chainsaw is regarded as “direct drive” motor.
Chainsaw Bar – Chainsaw bar sizes range between 4 to 40 inches, depending on the type of chainsaw (gas, electric, cordless). The bar is sized from the tip end of the bar to where the chain enters the chainsaw covering.
Please take into account that the longer the bar length, the more challenging the saw is to handle and also the more significant the safety concerns.
Chain Break – A chain break is another safety features that halts your chain while the chainsaw engine is still running. This is especially important for those individuals looking for a chainsaw that stops the chain in the event of violent kickbacks.
The chain break is also used to manually stop the chain in between cuts or changing positions for better handling.
