FAQ CHAINSAWS

How do I start a new two stroke engine?

You must read the operating instructions before you assemble or start your new ACTECMAX two-stroke engine. Assembling the product can be very difficult, and it is easy to damage the equipment if you don’t follow the correct procedure. The operating instructions also contain important safety information which must always be followed.

  1. Fill the fuel tank with the correct fuel mixture.
  2. Let the shut-off switch to the “on” position, and apply the choke.
  3. Don’t pull the starting cord more than 5–6 times with the choke on. Any more starting attempts with the choke on can flood the engine. Some modern low-emission engines are very quiet, and you can hardly hear the engine start.
  4. Shut off the choke after the engine has fired once.
  5. Pull the starting cord again and the engine should start.
  6. Open the throttle carefully to turn off the fast idle. Equipment started using the choke will begin to rotate even if you have not opened the throttle, because of the fast idle. That is why it is essential that you have the chain brake on when you start your chainsaw.

How Do I start a flooded Two Stroke Engine?

  1. Lay the machine down on a flat, dry surface.
  2. Take out the spark plug (make sure the spark plug hole is turned away from you, since fuel can spurt out).
  3. Push in the choke control to deactivate the choke, and press in the throttle control while pulling sharply on the starting cord six or eight times.
  4. Dry the spark plug and refit it.
  5. Follow the normal starting procedure for your machine (described in the instruction book).

The engine will not start. What do I do?

Usually when the engine won’t start, the problem is in the fuel supply or the spark plug.

Check that the plug lead is making good contact with the spark plug. Also check that the shut-off switch is in the on position, and that fuel is reaching the spark plug. If the fuel is being delivered and the spark plug is working, the engine may be flooded.

If the problem persists, we recommend you contact your local dealer.

What is the correct fuel mixture?

Products with two-stroke engines, the petrol must be mixed with two-stroke oil. ACTECMAX recommends branded two-stroke oil. The petrol/oil ratio must be 40:1.

Which spark plug should I use on my machine?

Always use the spark plug recommended in the operating instructions. This will normally be the RCJ7Y. Using the wrong spark plug can damage your engine. If you are not sure, contact your local dealer.

How do I lubricate the bar and chain?

Chainsaws from ACTECMAX are self-lubricating. Use only approved bar and chain oil. This oil has been specially developed to retain its viscosity at the extreme temperatures generated by the chain and bar. If the bar is fitted with a nose roller, this should also be lubricated regularly.
