Important note on bio-degradable chain oils
If you are not planning to use the saw again for an ex-
tended period of time, empty the oil tank and put in a small
amount of regular engine oil (SAE 30), and then run the
saw for a time. This is necessary to ß ush out all remain-
ing bio-degradable oil from the oil tank, oil-feed system,
chain and guide bar, as many such oils tend to leave sticky
residues over time, which can cause dam-
waste oil

age to the oil pump or other parts.
The next time you use the saw, Þ ll the tank with BIOTOP
chain oil again. In case of damage caused by using waste
oil or unappropriate chain oil the product guarantee will be
null and void.
Your salesman will inform you about the use of chain oil.
NEVER USE WASTE OIL
Waste oil is very dangerous for the environment.
Waste oil contains high amounts of carcinogenic substances.
Residues in waste oil result in a high degree of wear and tear
at the oil pump and the sawing device.
In case of damage caused by using waste oil or unappropriate
chain oil the product guarantee will be null and void.
Your salesman will inform you about the use of chain oil.
AVOID SKIN AND EYE CONTACT
Mineral oil products degrease your skin. If your skin comes in
contact with these substances repeatedly and for an extended
period of time, it will desiccate. Various skin deseases may result.
In addition, allergic reactions are known to occur.
Eyes can be irritated by contact with oil. If oil comes into your
eyes, immediately wash them with clear water.
If your eyes are still irritated, see a doctor immediately!

Refuelling

FOLLOW THE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS!
Be careful and cautious when handling fuels.
The engine must be switched off!
Thoroughly clean the area around the caps, to prevent dirt from
getting into the fuel or oil tank.
Unscrew the cap and Þ ll the tank with fuel (fuel/oil mixture)
or chain oil as the case may be. Fill up to the bottom edge
of the Þ ller neck. Be careful not to spill fuel or chain oil!
Tightly screw on the cap.
Clean screw cap and tank after refuelling.
Lubricating the chain
During operation there must always be sufÞ cient chain oil in
the chain-oil tank to provide good chain lubrication. One Þ lling
is sufÞ cient for about one half-hour of continuous operation.
While working make sure there is enough chain oil in the tank.
If necessary, add oil. The engine must be switched off!
