Replacing/Changing the Saw Chain and
Chain Bar (see figures C1–C3)
Check the saw chain and chain bar according
to section "Tensioning the Saw Chain".
The circular groove of the chain bar will wear
particularly on the lower edge with time.
When replacing the saw chain, turn the chain
bar by 180° to allow even wear, thus extend-
ing chain bar life.
Check the drive sprocket 28. If it is worn out
or damaged due to strain, have it exchanged
by an authorized Bosch after-sales service.
Sharpening the Saw Chain
Have your chain sharpened professionally at
your authorized Bosch after-sales service or
sharpen the chain yourself using the Bosch
sharpening kit or the Dremel Multi power tool
with the appropriate grinder (1453). Observe
the sharpening instructions provided with the
sharpening kit.
