  • This unit is designed for felling small trees no taller than you and trimming small branches and limbs up to 10centimetes in diameter.
    For best results, observe the following precautions:
  • To prevent electrocution, do not operate within 15m of overhead electrical lines.
  • Keep bystanders and pets at least 15m away.
  • Plan the cut carefully. Be aware of the direction in which the tree or branch will fall. Branches may fall in unexpected directions. Do not stand directly under the branch being cut.
  • Remove long branches in several stages.
  • Cut lower branches first to allow higher branches more room to fall.


  • Do not cut from a ladder, rooftop, or other unstable support; this is extremely dangerous, Leave larger cutting operations for professionals.
  • When cutting branches that are lying on the ground, make sure the location Is clear of other objects, electric wires, cables etc. before cutting, Also be aware of the position of your feet before cutting items on the ground.
  • Pull the front handle back to open the jaws and “clamp” around the branch you want to cut.

  • Place the chain drive links into the bar groove as shown.

NOTE: Make certain of direction of chain. pls Chain Rotation

  • Position the chain so there is a loop at the back of the bar.
  • While holding the chain in position on the bar, reinsert the bar and chain through the opening between the jaws and place the loop around the sprocket.
  • Fit the bar flush against the mounting surface so that the bar stud is in the long slot of the bar.

WARNING: When placing the bar on the bar studs, ensure that the chain tensioning pin is in the chain tension pin hole, Failure to properly place the chain tensioning pin in the chain tensioning pin hole could cause the chain to come loose, resulting in serious personal injury.

  • Remove all slack from the chain by turning the chain tensioning screw clockwise, assuring that the chain seats into the bar groove during tensioning.
  • Lift the tip of the bar up to check for sag. Release the tip of the bar, and turn the chain tensioning screw 1/2 turn clockwise. Repeat this process until sag does not exist.
  • Chain is correctly tensioned when there is no slack on the underside of the bar, the chain is snug, but it can be tured by hand without binding.
  • Replace the chain cover. Reinstall the chain cover bolt and tighten securely.

NOTE: If the chain is too tight, it will not rotate. Loosen the chain cover bolt slightly and tum chain tensioning screw 1/4 turn anti-clockwise. Lift the tip of the bar up and retighten bolt, Ensure that the chain will rotate without binding.

  • Return the lower jaw to the closed position by pulling back on the front handle and allowing the handle to move all the way forward.

Use premium bar and chain lubricant. It is designed for chains and chain oilers and is formulated to perform over a wide temperature range with no dilution required.

  • Stop the motor and disconnect from power supply.
  • Remove the oil reservoir cap and carefully pour approximately 60ml of bar and chain lubricant Into the tank.
  • Replace the cap and tighten securely.
  • Check and refill the tank every time the Grip Saw is used.
  • NOTE: Do not use dirty, used, or otherwise contaminated lubricants. Damage may occur to the oil pump, bar, or chain.

Only use a low-kickback chain on this saw.
This fast-cutting chain will provide kickback reduction when properly maintained.
For smooth and fast cutting, the chain needs to be maintained properly. The chain requires sharpening when wood chips become small and powdery, the chain must be forced through the wood during cutting, or the chain cuts to one side. During maintenance of your chain, consider the following:

  • Improper filing angle of the side plate can increase the risk of a severe kickback.
  • Raker (depth gauge) clearance:
  • Too low increases the potential for kickback.
  • Not low enough decreases cutting ability.
  • If cutter teeth have hit hard objects such as nails and stones, or have been abraded by mud or sand on the wood – have a service dealer sharpen the chain.
    NOTE: Inspect the drive sprocket for wear or damage when replacing the chain. If signs of wear or damage are present, have the drive sprocket replaced by an authorised service dealer.

Be careful to file all cutters to the specified angles and to the same length, as fast cutting can be obtained REPENS only when all cutters are uniform.

  • Stop the motor and disconnect from power supply.
  • Tighten the chain tension enough that the chain does not wobble. Do all of your filing at the mid-point of the bar. Wear gloves for protection.
  • Use a 5/32 in. diameter round file and holder.
  • Keep the file level with the top plate of the tooth.
    Do not let the file dip or rock. Left Hand p
  • Using light but firm pressure, stroke towards the front corner of the tooth. Lift file away from the steel on each return stroke.
  • Put a few firm strokes on every tooth. File all left hand cutters in one direction. Then move to the other side and file the right hand cutters in the opposite direction. Occasionally remove filings from the file with a wire brush.

NOTICE: Dull or improperly sharpened chain can cause excessive motor speed during cutting which may result in severe motor damage.
WARNING: Improper chain sharpening increases the potential of kickback. Failure to replace or repair a damaged chain can cause serious injury.


  • CORRECT 30° – File holders are marked with guide marks to align file property to produce correct top plate angle.
  • LESS THAN 30° – For cross cutting.
  • MORE THAN 30° – Feathered edge dulls quickly.


  • CORRECT -80° Produced Correct Side Plate Incorrect Side Plate automatically if correct diameter file Filing Angle Filing Angle is used in file holder. Hook Backward
  • HOOK -“Grabs” and dulls quickly. Increases potential of KICKBACK Results from using a file with diameter too small, or file held too low.
  • BACKWARD SLOPE -Needs too much feed pressure, causes excessive wear to bar and chain. Results from using a file with diameter too large, or file held too high.


  • The depth gauge should be maintained at a clearance of 0.025 in use a depth gauge too! for checking the depth gauge clearances.
  • Every time the chain is filed, check the depth gauge clearance.

Use a flat file and a depth gauge jointer to lower all gauges uniformly. Depth gauge jointers are available in .020in to .035in. Use a.025in depth gauge jointer. After lowering each depth gauge, restore original shape by rounding the front. Be careful not to damage adjoining drive links with the edge of the file.
Depth gauges must be adjusted with the flat file in the same direction the adjoining cutter was filed with the round file. Use care not to contact cutter face with flat file when adjusting depth gauges.


When the quide bar shows signs of wear, reverse it on the saw to distribute the wear for maximum barlife. The bar should be cleaned every day of use and checked for wear and damage.
Feathering or burring of the bar rails is a normal process of bar wear. Such faults should be smoothed with a file as soon as they occur.
A bar with any of the following faults should be replaced:

  • Wear inside the bar rails which permits the chain to lay over sideways.
  • Bent guide bar.
  • Cracked or broken rails.
  • Spread rails.

Lubricate guide bars with a sprocket at their tip weekly. Using a grease syringe, lubricate weekly in the lubricating hole. Turn the guide bar and check that the lubrication holes and chain groove are free from impurities.
