Next, you will want to make sure that the chain is properly lubricated. The Stihl chainsaw has a special decompression valve that releases the compression in the engine, making it much easier to pull the recoil starter. When you use the chainsaw, make sure to remove the oil reservoir and keep it topped up. This is especially important if the chain is often used.
Before you begin using the chain saw, you will need to set the choke and cold start. You must be sure that the cutting attachment is not touching the ground, otherwise it may blunt. Next, you should hold the chain saw up to a light background and pull the starter rope. Then, push the right toecap into the rear handle to stabilize it. When the engine is running, pull the throttle to start the chain.
After ensuring that the saw is turned on, you should remove the spark plug. Once you have the spark plug, connect the ignition coil lead to it. The spark plug should touch the engine head. Once the engine is started, you should pull the recoil starter cord. Then, push the right toecap into the rear handle to stabilize the chain saw.

Then, pull the recoil starter cord again. Once it starts, the engine should be spinning. After the engine has started, it is time to adjust the throttle. By pulling the recoil starter, the chain brake should be pulled back to the handle. If the chain breaks during operation, it may cause damage to the engine housing.
Once you have set the master control lever to cold start the engine, insert the spark plug. Make sure the cutting attachment is not in contact with the ground. The cutting blade can blunt if it is wet. While the engine is still running, tilt the chainsaw to allow gas to flow out. If the crankshaft is still turning, replace the flywheel key and the recoil starter spring.
