Selecting the right saw, first consider the type of cutting, and then think about which saw to buy. In accordance with the General principle, the blade of the chain saw should be 30% longer than the rough cutting, so if you kill a tree with a diameter of 24 inches, select a saw that has a guide (the main length of the cut surface, for example) has at least 34 inches in length.
In the case of trees and lumber (in contrast to demolition work or other applications) chain saws are used in four main cuts. The most common is cutting , which is the act of pruning trees. Pruning is the shaping and pruning of live trees for aesthetics or health of the trees. Limitation is the process of cutting out most or all of the branches of the tree before or after felling . Finally, nailing is used for sawing logs into smaller useful and / or portable section.
The selection of the appropriate saw for your goals means to consider something more than just the length of the blade, it is also the consideration of power and torque.
The main differences between the grinding of electric and gasoline volume and power. Electric saws tend to be smaller than their counterparts with a drive gas and usually provide a smaller torque, which means they are only suitable for small work-related cutting. While saws, electric means dedication to a certain power and size, they are typically much lighter and more compact than saws are powered by gas and this makes it easier to use for smaller or less physically able-bodied operators, and means that it is easier to store. Much easier to keep a saw that does not require liquid fuel or mixture of gas and oil, and probably not enough electricity.
In the end, with a gas saw is more versatile, useful tool, and it’s not only because of the possibility of increasing power and range of cutting: the saw plate should not be connected to work, so you can take it with you everywhere, from construction to forest in the backyard.
Sharpening and maintenance of chain saws
Almost all petrol chain saws use two-stroke internal combustion engine and do not have a separate tank for engine oil. This means that the operator must use the correct mixture of gasoline and oil, which in most cases is approximately five ounces of oil per gallon of fuel; check your manual saw and make sure. Without the proper mixture of fuel and oil, the internal combustion engine will be quickly damaged and worn.
Before each use of the saw, check the voltage and make sure it meets the manufacturer’s recommendations. Make sure that the guide and the blade is clean and if necessary lubricated. Also make sure air filter is clean, clean and serviceable .
To start the saw chain, lay it flat on the ground and make sure that the brake motor is totally enclosed (chain must not move when the brake is displaced forward). To open / to turn on the choke and start the engine, if there is backing. You then firmly grasp the tool, pull the handle and hear the roar when the engine starts.
To make sure that your saw is fully functional, does not tolerate excessive consumption and is safe to use as possible, you must retain the sharpness. Regular sharpening of the chain saw extends tool life, saves time when you use it, and reduces the risk of marriage, the flying of the remains or saw, is locked in a thick piece of wood. Along with protective glasses, hard hat, hearing protection and work gloves, a good machine for sharpening chain saws is the important tool to have on hand.
The choice of sharpening a chain saw
Saw for chain saws consists of knives which are the teeth which perform the actual cutting of the material, and tumors , which control the depth to which you reach teeth while maintaining the smoothness and consistency of the cutting process. Players need to be from time to time wypełniani, but this car requires regular scheduled maintenance.
While you can sharpen a chainsaw with a round file by hand to work on the teeth, this process is time consuming and rarely as effective as the use of a special machine for chain saws.
The use of electric chain saws, working on the bench is the quickest way of getting sharp blades. Most electric ostrzarek looks like a small, rotating blade, but they have rather the grinding wheels than the saw. Its dial can be adjusted to get the correct angle for teeth of a certain chain of a chainsaw. Check out the ideal angle of inclination of the saw blade before buying the machine to make sure that both are suitable, but almost all modern chain saws are suitable for most chain saws.
As an alternative for electric chain saws you may want to consider a block, which rests on the guide rail the saw chain and manually drag circuit during correction. Supply power to such units, by turning the handle, but unlike the manual process, the sharpening angle remains strictly supported tool. Although this kind temperówki is less effective and more physically connected than the electric pencil sharpener can work anywhere
