How to start a top handle chainsaw
If you follow this procedure shown in this short video, you will find the engine very easy to start on your Husqvarna top handle chainsaw, even when the engine is cold. First make sure that the chain break is engaged. This prevents the chain from turning and protects your hands while starting. Next prime the carburettor, by pressing the priming bulb 5 times, followed by activating the choke. Pull the starter cord until the engine ignites. Deactivate the choke when the chainsaw engine has stopped and pull the starter cord again until the engine starts. Disengage the chain break and rev the engine to obtain normal rpm. Your top handle chainsaw is now ready to use.
