Functions when using the Carver Promo PSG-45-15 Beznosaw are described in detail in the instructions, so it is recommended to study them before using them. When working, you must wear special protective clothing and anti-vibration gloves. It is necessary to start the saw at a distance of at least 3 m from the place of refueling.
Check chain tension before use. If everything is in order, the chain will be pulled in freely by no more than 4-6 mm. After installing a new chain, it is advisable to check the tension before fully breaking it in. The manual describes in detail how to start a cold and a warm engine.
A special oil for gasoline 2-stroke engines is selected for lubrication. Gasoline with an octane rating of 92 is used. It is advisable not to use low-quality gasoline, as this can lead to premature failure of the saw. The mixing ratios in which the fuel mixture must be mixed are indicated on the oil packaging. As a rule, it is taken for 1 liter of gasoline and 0.025 liters of oil.
It is strictly forbidden to use a saw:
- On a gasoline, because due to insufficient lubrication, the engine quickly fails.
- Refuel with diesel fuel, as rubber and plastic parts can be damaged.
- Fill in oil that is not suitable for 2-stroke engines, as the outlet port may become clogged and the piston rings may seize.
- Pour mixtures that have expired, i.e. prepared a month ago.
You can always use SAE 10W-30 oil, SAE 30-40 in summer and SAE 20 in winter.
Mixing oil and fuel for Carver chainsaws
Important! Take precautions when shaking the mixture.
Use only the recommended proportions and try not to prepare the fuel mixture for the future, as it will lose its properties. In order to get the mixture right, you must first pour the oil into the container that comes with the kit and then add some gasoline. Thoroughly mix the resulting mixture and add the remaining gasoline.
Important! If it is not mixed well, the plunger may bind.
The first start-up and running-in of chainsaws Carver
Like any piece of equipment, a chainsaw must be broken in. Before you start the engine for the first time, you must ensure that the emergency stop is deactivated. After starting the saw according to the instructions, set the average speed and check the operation of the lubrication system. To make sure it works, hold the saw over the paper. If specks appear, the system is functioning properly.
The breaking-in is done with a chain, because this way you can make sure that the sawing part is in good condition. The whole procedure takes several hours. It is impossible to break in only at idle, as premature failure will occur. A light break-in is required to achieve good results.
You can study the user manual for Carver chainsaws in more detail at link.
Due to the fact that modern technology is becoming newer and more sophisticated, its design is becoming more and more complicated, and consequently its repair. Many breakdowns can be avoided if you follow the rules of operation. The most common breakdowns are:
- The engine does not start. To eliminate this problem, it is necessary to check the candle or replace it with a new one, check the quality of the fuel liquid or replace it with a new one.
- Poor performance can be due to poor fuel mixture, clogged filters, or poor carburetor adjustment.
- The saw unit is not lubricated. The lubrication channels and holes on the saw and bar should be checked.
The principle of carburettor adjustment is simple and takes place step by step:
- Adjust the engine at low speed until trouble-free operation is achieved.
- At maximum speed, adjust the supply of fuel mixture.
- Adjust at idle.
