Recommendations for the use, advantages and disadvantages of the tool

My advice to future owners chainsaw

When running-a saw load the minimum by doing one cut, let the tool to rest.

When running-a saw load the minimum by doing one cut, let the tool to rest.

I voiced my advice and tips for Stihl MS-180, which became the basis for several years using this tool:

  1. Running chainsaw. The manufacturer's recommended operating chainsaw MS-180 without its preconditioning. Mol, German quality unit ensures its readiness to complete workloads of purchase.
  • Partly running chainsaw still needed - it is shown by my experience. Therefore, in the early hours of the saw, try on a maximum not to load. Your course of action - to carry out the cut, for example 1-1.5 minutes. Next, leave the instrument for 10 seconds (but not more) at idle.

I want you to warn that prolonged running at idle is bad for chainsaws. This leads to the accumulation of carbon deposits on the piston rings. Occasionally because of this piston-cylinder even fail.

  • Full workload on the unit can do after 5-7 refills of the fuel tank.
Fill the chainsaw only quality fuels and lubricants, well, if they are branded.

Fill the chainsaw only quality fuels and lubricants, well, if they are branded.

  1. Petrol lubricant mixture. Take it from the brands that are recommended in the data sheet saws. Refill tool can not only fuel produced by Calm. You can use any high-octane gasoline and high-quality lubricating oil.

Note that, like the rest of Western technology, chainsaw Stihl very sensitive to fuel quality. On the bad and cheap fuel oil and the unit will not operate normally. He will stall or even fail.

Do not forget to fill the unit, its tanks should always be full.

Do not forget to fill the unit, its tanks should always be full.

  • Follow the correct proportion of fuel and lubricant mixture. In the MS-180 chainsaw it is 50: 1. In 5 liters of gasoline AI-92/95, you will need to 0.1 liter of oil.
  • prepared mixture You can store no more than 45 days.

I recommend that you always use fresh fuel. That is, mix the gasoline and oil directly before use in an amount which is enough for 1-2 days.

  1. When the fuel refuel toolImmediately monitor the oil level in the tank for it. For quality chainsaw operation, both its tank should be full. The oil reservoir can pour any clean, high-quality grease. It is strictly forbidden to use detention.
    Prior to application, confirm complete lubrication of the chain. Turn on the high speed and a little hold the saw on a piece of paper. Oil is fed in the normal mode starts to draw traces of sprinkles.
  2. Be sure to check before work level stretch the saw chain and sharpening its quality.

Operating mode tool

In winter, the tool can be loaded stronger and they work continuously for about 30 minutes.

Chainsaw to serve you for many years:
