With only a quick pull of the red PowerSharp lever, a self-sharpening electric chainsaw removes any dullness from your chain. High torque and power, immediate start at the pull of a trigger, no fumes, easy to move without fuel/oil spill, reduced servicing and maintenance costs. The Oregon corded chainsaw is the best option if you want to trim branches and limbs in your yard. Because it starts quickly and doesn’t require any gas-oil mixing, you’ll save time and aggravation. This chainsaw is made by the saw chain maker, and it includes a 16″ chain that you can tighten without using tools thanks to the built-in tensioning ring. The automatic oiler distributes oil on the bar and chain of your chainsaw while it’s running, keeping it lubricated and avoiding early wear.

Can you tell me where this product is manufactured?

The company has HQ in the USA, but the machine may very well be made in China.

Problems attaching bar and chain with one I've just purchased. The tensioner does not move far enough to fit the chain. Any tips?

You seem to expect to be able to put the chain into the groove on the bar without taking into account that the path length for the chain within the groove is much shorter than the path around the top of the walls of the groove. If the chain length were made so big that it was easy to just lift it into the groove there would be far too much slack once it is in the groove. Benno’s comparison to putting on a bicycle chain is very good. You need to get as much as possible of the chain around the drive sprocket, into the lower groove, around the tip sprocket and up into the upper groove and then pull the chain that is in the upper groove further along the groove (in reverse) to get more chain in. This will cause the drive sprocket to rotate in reverse. When all the chain is in there will be a lot of slack to take up by the tensioner.

Does anyone know why I can't fit a 40cm Stilt chain to this? It's about 2mm too short. Do Stilt and Oregon measure 40cm differently?

An alternative method is to first put the chain fully and tightly on the bar with the bar in your hand and the tensioner wheel fully anticlockwise. With the chain tightly in the groove you will have just enough slack at the back end to put the chain over the drive sprocket and then get the bar over the stud. During this last maneuver, it may be necessary to allow the chain to slide on the bar in order for the drive links to get properly onto the drive sprocket. Take up the slack with the tensioner. Fit the side cover and pull the chain in reverse to ensure it is correctly mounted and moves smoothly with effort in order to avoid damage when you power up. When pulling the chain make sure the left-hand barrier (Brake) is pushed towards the motor). Prime the oiler and oil the front sprocket BEFORE you fit the chain. Pulling the chain in reverse will help you judge the tension. Too much tension will make the chain very difficult to move and will wear the bar. Too little will risk the chain jumping out of the groove.
