Day 3 - How Do I Break In A New Chainsaw?
How do I break in a new chainsaw? Some manufacturers like Stihl, Husqvarna and Echo say there is no break-in period required because the chainsaws are built so fine-tuned and have already been run at the factory before they're sent off for sale, but in reality they're only running them long enough to make sure they are in working order. As an experienced mechanic that has worked on hundreds of these expensive chainsaws, I highly recommend taking the time to break-in your chainsaw before you put it under load and start cutting a log or tree with it. Watch and I'll show you how to break-in your new chainsaw!
