Chainsaw Maintenance

When: 
Jan. 27, 2024 Midnight
Where: 

Berkshire Botanical Garden

Does this sound familiar? You’re headed out for a day of cordwood cutting and you pull out your chainsaw, bar oil, fuel, and tools. You get set up at your work site and begin to start your saw, and it won’t start. Or your saw starts but begins to smoke. How about your chain is slowly creeping around the bar and your hand is not even on the throttle? Or, you’re trying to cut and you are creating fine dust and not flying out wood chips. This can all be avoided! Come and learn 10 ways (at least) to keep your saw running efficiently and cutting great on Jan. 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with Melissa LeVangie Ingersoll and Bear LeVangie. BYOS – Bring your own saw, tools, and PPE (and things you have questions about).
