General power tool safety warnings
Warning!Failure to follow the warnings and instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. The term "power tool" in all of the warnings listed below refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool or battery operated (cordless) power tool. [. . . ] If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or an authorised Black & Decker Service Centre in order to avoid a hazard. Using an extension cable
Always use an approved extension cable suitable for the power input of this tool (see technical data). The extension cable must be suitable for outdoor use and marked accordingly. 5 mm² extension cable can be used without loss of product performance. Before use, inspect the extension cable for signs of damage, wear and ageing. These include: u Injuries caused by touching any rotating/moving parts. When using any tool for prolonged periods ensure you take regular breaks. U Health hazards caused by breathing dust developed when using your tool (example:- working with wood, especially oak, beech and MDF. Before performing any maintenance on power tools, switch off and unplug the appliance. Remove the cable tie that attaches the chain to the chainbar before assembly. To reduce the risk of injury, the user must read the instruction manual. Com manuals search engine
Oiling the chain
You must do this whenever you use a new chain (6) for the first time. Take the new chain (6) and soak it in chain oil for at least an hour before using it. We recommend that you use only Black & Decker oil during the lifetime of your chainsaw because mixtures of different oils could lead to the oil becoming degraded, which can drastically shorten the lifetime of the saw chain and create additional risks. The tension is correct when the chain (6) snaps back after being pulled 3 mm away from the guide bar (7). There should be no "sag" between the guide bar (7) and the chain (6) on the underside. Note: Do not over-tension the chain as this will lead to excessive wear and will reduce the life of the guide bar and the chain. Note: When the chain is new, check the tension frequently (after disconnecting from the mains) during the first 2 hours of use because a new chain stretches slightly. Set the front guard/chain brake assembly to the forward position (fig. u Turn the tension adjust ring (5) anti-clockwise as far as it will go. U Place the chain (6) over the guide bar (7) making sure that the saw chain cutters on the upper part of the guide bar (7) face towards the front (fig. U Guide the chain (6) around the guide bar (7) and pull it to create a loop to one side at the rear end of the guide bar (7).
