• Do not operatea chain saw with one hand.
Serious injury to the operator, helpers, by-
standers or any combination of these per-
sons may result from one-handed opera-
tion.

saw
is
intended
for
two-handed use.
• Operatethe chain saw only in a well-venti-
lated outdoor area.
• Do not operate saw from a ladder or in a
tree.
• Make sure the chain will not make contact
with any object while starting the engine.
Never try to start the saw when the guide
bar is in a cut.
• Do not put pressure on the saw at the end
of the cut. Applying pressure can cause
you to lose control when the cut is com-
pleted.
• Stop the engine before setting the saw
down.
• Do not operate a chain saw that is dam-
aged, improperly
adjusted,
or not com-
pletely and securely assembled.
Always
replace bar, chain, hand guard, or chain
brake immediately if it becomes damaged,
broken or is otherwise removed.
• With the engine stopped, hand carry the
chain saw with the muffler away from your
body, and the guide bar and chain to the
rear, preferably covered with a scabbard.

qualified service dealer with the exception
of the items listed in the maintenance sec-
tionofthis manual. Forexample,
if improp-
er tools are used to remove or hold the fly-
wheel when servicing the clutch, structural
damage
to the flywheel
can occur and
cause the flywheel to burst.
