Chapter 8: Getting Started with Your STIHL Chainsaw

Before getting started, make sure you are in good physical condition and never operate a chainsaw while under the influence of drugs, alcohol or any other substance that might impair your vision, dexterity or judgement. It’s important to analyze the many factors of the work situation and create a plan in order to get the job done safely and efficiently. Assess the condition of the tree and the surrounding area, and take the appropriate safety precautions before chainsaw operation. Remember: plan your work and work your plan.

Before you start your STIHL chainsaw, make sure you fully understand your instruction manual, which covers the important items that are specific to your chainsaw’s design, features and operation.
