Tool-Less Chain Tensioning – Husqvarna Chainsaw
Watch our video on how to use the tool-less chain tensioner on a Husqvarna chainsaw.
The tool-less chain tensioner allows you to easily adjust the tension of the chain, without using tools!
If you notice the chain is hanging off of the bar, here is what you need to do:
While holding the bar, turn the handle of the chain tensioner a half of a turn counter clockwise
Use the thumb-wheel to tighten the chain by spinning it downward until the chain links fit into the groove on the bar and can not be physically lifted, but the chain can still be turned by hand
Turn the handle a half turn clock wise to return it to it’s original position
Jack’s Safety Tips: Before servicing or repairing any power equipment, disconnect the spark plug and battery cables. Remember to wear appropriate safety glasses and gloves to protect against harmful chemicals and debris. View our Disclaimer.
