N
When the log is supported on both ends, as illus-
trated, cut 1/3 the diameter from the top overbuck.
Then make the finished cut by underbucking the
lower 2/3 to meet the first cut.
O
When bucking on a slope always stand on the
uphill side of the log, as illustrated. When "cutting
through", to maintain complete control release the
cutting pressure near the end of the cut without re-
laxing your grip on the chain saw handles. Don't let
the chain contact the ground. After completing the
cut, wait for the saw chain to stop before you move
the chain saw. Always stop the motor before moving
from tree to tree.

Maintenance

Before any work on the machine itself, pull
the mains plug from the socket.
Note: To ensure long and reliable service, carry out
the following maintenance regularly.
Regularly check for obvious defects such as loose,
dislodged or damaged chain and chain bar, loose
fixings and worn or damaged components.
Check that covers and guards are undamaged and
correctly fitted. Carry out necessary maintenance or
repairs before using the chain saw.
If the chain saw should happen to fail despite the
care taken in manufacturing and testing, repair
should be carried out by an authorized customer
service agent.
Before returning, ensure all oil in the oil tank has
been emptied.
For all correspondence and spare parts orders, al-
ways include the 10-digit part number (TYP) from
the nameplate of the machine!
Replacing/Changing Chain and
Chain Bar
Fit the chain and chain bar as described in "Assem-
bly and Tensioning Chain".
The circular groove of the chain bar will wear partic-
ularly on the lower edge with time. When replacing
the chain turn the chain bar 180° to allow even wear,
thus extending chain bar life.
Check drive sprocket 19. If it is worn out or damaged
due to strain, have it exchanged by an authorized
Bosch service agent.

Sharpening Chain

Have your chain sharpened professionally at your
Bosch approved service agent or sharpen the chain
yourself using the Bosch sharpening kit or a Dremel
25 • F 016 L70 540 • 10.03
power tool with the appropriate grinder (1453), both
available at your Bosch approved service agent. Fol-
low the sharpening instructions supplied with the
sharpening kit.

Checking the Automatic Oiler

Proper functioning of the automatic oiler can be
checked by running the chain saw and pointing the
tip of the chain bar towards a piece of cardboard or
paper on the ground. Caution: Do not touch the
ground with the chain. Ensure safety clearance of
20 cm. If an increasing oil pattern developes, the au-
tomatic oiler is operating fine. If there is no oil pat-
tern, despite a full oil reservoir, see "Fault Finding" or
contact your Bosch approved service agent.
