The Four Basic Saw Chain Rules Attention Chain Saw Users


OREGON® urges you to become familiar with the four basic saw chain rules. Users who know and follow these rules can count on superior performance from their saw chain, guide bar, and drive sprocket — and reduce safety hazards at the same time.


Rule Number 1 Your saw chain must be correctly tensioned


More saw chain and guide bar problems are caused by incorrect saw chain tension than by any other single factor. See pages 35 – 37 on how to tension your saw chain.


Rule Number 2 Your saw chain must be well lubricated


A constant supply of oil to your chain saw’s guide bar, saw chain and drive sprocket is vital. Without it, excessive friction, wear, and damage will occur.


See page 37 for instructions on how to lubricate your chain.
