Right hand guard

Apart from protecting your hand if the chain jumps or
snaps, the right hand guard stops branches and twigs
from interfering with your grip on the rear handle.
Vibration damping system
Your machine is equipped with a vibration damping
system that is designed to minimize vibration and make
operation easier.
The machine's vibration damping system reduces the
transfer of vibration between the engine unit/cutting
equipment and the machine's handle unit. The body of the
chain saw, including the cutting equipment, is insulated
from the handles by vibration damping units.
Cutting hardwoods (most broadleaf trees) creates more
vibration than cutting softwoods (most conifers). Cutting
with cutting equipment that is blunt or faulty (wrong type
or badly sharpened) will increase the vibration level.
WARNING! Overexposure to vibration
!
can lead to circulatory damage or nerve
damage in people who have impaired
circulation. Contact your doctor if you
experience symptoms of overexposure
to vibration. Such symptoms include
numbness, loss of feeling, tingling,
pricking, pain, loss of strength, changes
in skin colour or condition. These
symptoms normally appear in the
fingers, hands or wrists. These
symptoms may be increased in cold
temperatures.

GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Stop switch

Use the stop switch to switch off the engine.
Muffler
The muffler is designed to keep noise levels to a minimum
and to direct exhaust fumes away from the user.
WARNING! The exhaust fumes from the
!
engine are hot and may contain sparks
which can start a fire. Never start the
machine indoors or near combustible
material!
In areas with a hot, dry climate there is a high risk of fires.
These areas are sometimes subject to government rules
requiring among other things the muffler must be
equipped with an approved type of spark arrestor mesh.
CAUTION! The muffler gets very hot during and after
use. This also applies during idling. Be aware of the fire
hazard, especially when working near flammable
substances and/or vapours.
WARNING! Never use a saw without a
!
muffler, or with a damaged muffler. A
damaged muffler may substantially
increase the noise level and the fire
hazard. Keep fire fighting equipment
handy. If a spark arrestor screen is
required in your area, never use the saw
without or with a broken spark arrestor
screen.
