How to tension
the saw chain correctly on your Stihl Chain Saw:
Regular tensioning of
the saw chain improves the safety during use and
reduces wear and damage to the chain. We therefore
recommend that you check the chain tension and make
any necessary corrections each time before you start
work. During work with the chain saw, the chain
becomes warm and therefore expands slightly. During
manufacture, STIHL saw chains are "stretched"
slightly in the factory, and this prevents excessive
thermal expansion. Nevertheless, for your own
safety, you must still tension it manually from time
STIHL chain saws have an easy-to-use chain tensioner
on the side, with which the chain can be tensioned
in a matter of minutes. This is how it is done:
1. With the engine turned off,
first loosen the securing screws of the chain cover with a
combination wrench. To tension the chain, it is sufficient to
only loosen these screws. Then turn the tensioning screw with
the screwdriver end of the combination wrench
2. Now check whether the chain
lies loosely on the bar. To prevent injuries, you should wear
protective gloves when doing this. If the lower side of the
chain hangs away from the bar, it is too loose and you must turn
the tensioning screw further.
3. If the lower side of the chain
does not hang away from the bar, but the chain can still be
pulled away slightly, the tension is correct. You should also be
able to lift the top side of the chain slightly. To prevent
injuries from the sharp edges of the chain, you should wear
protective gloves when doing this.
You can tension the chain quickly
and easily with the Quick Chain Tensioning feature, with which
many STIHL chain saws are equipped as standard. This is how you
Loosen the chain sprocket cover
above the wing nut. Turning the adjusting wheel above this
anticlockwise reduces the chain tension; turning it clockwise
increases the tension. When the chain sprocket cover is screwed
down, the guide bar is automatically fixed in position.
replacing the saw chain on your chainsaw, you should
first scrape all dirt and deposits from the groove
of the guide bar, since these can cause the chain to
jump out of the bar. There is also a risk that such
deposits soak up the chain lubricant before it can
reach the bottom side of the guide bar, which is
subjected to large stresses. This would result in
overheating and excessive wear of the chain and the
bar. You can remove these deposits with a small
screwdriver or some other sharp object. Before
making the first cut with a new chain on your saw,
you should allow the chain to "run in" for a few
Caution: Since the chain contracts slightly as it cools
after use, your should never tension or replace the chain on
your chainsaw while it is hot. This can result in serious damage
to the guide bar or to the crankshaft of the engine. It is
advisable to slightly reduce the chain tension when you finish
work, particularly in frosty weather.
conjures up an image of ear-splitting drills and grinders. But
this work is concerned with other sorts of tools: instruments,
approaches, schemes, devices and methods (among many other
synonyms) for tackling the differences in power that impede
policies and institutions from achieving equitable natural
resource management. A policy tool can be defined as a mechanism
for influencing decisions and decision-making about natural
resource management. Power tools are policy tools that address
power asymmetries between marginalised and marginalisers.

Everybody knows that powertools
are often fast moving and when turned on, commence movement
immediately. If a power tool is not properly held or used,
fingers and hands can be chopped off instantly in a
construction accident. The most important thing a worker
needs to know before they even start using a powertool is
how to turn it off.
In many types of businesses,
hand and power tools are used every day as they make work
easier and allow employees to be more efficient. Virtually
all power tool accidents can be prevented. However, simple
health and safety steps that could be followed to avoid a
construction accident of this type are often ignored.
Older tools are more of a
concern as they may not have safety features installed. If
you regularly use power tools and the ones you are using are
old, dated or worn, have you asked your employer for a more
Failing to properly use and
maintain electric-powered tools causes thousands of cuts,
puncture wounds, amputations and electrocutions every year.

New technology is being
developed all time to make power tools operate more
intelligently and reduce personal injuries as a result of
