    How to start a Husqvarna top handle chainsaw

    Remember to always follow all safety precautions when starting your Husqvarna chainsaw. The chain brake must be engaged to reduce the risk of injury. Never start a chainsaw unless the bar, chain and all covers are fitted correctly. Otherwise the clutch can come loose and cause serious injuries. Place the machine on firm ground. Ensure you have a secure footing and that the chain is not in contact with anything. Keep people and animals well away from the working area.

    Tensioning the chain on your Husqvarna chainsaw

    The more you use a chain the longer it becomes. A slack chain can jump off and cause serious or even fatal injury. It is therefore important to adjust the chain regularly to take up the slack. Check the chain tension every time you refuel. NOTE! A new saw chain has a running-in period during which you should check the tension more frequently.
