This passage is going to talk about the followings of replacing chain on pole saw:

(1) Tools needed to replace the chainsaw chain

Other chainsaw designs may be slightly different from the chainsaw example we are using here, but the chainsaw design is similar enough to the steps in this article to help most chainsaw owners, no matter which model they have.

The only tool required for repair is the wrench that most likely comes with the saw. Otherwise, use a flat-blade screwdriver and socket wrench is ok.

(2) How to remove an old chain saw blade?

To replace the chainsaw chain, you first need to remove the old chainsaw chain. Specific steps are as follows.

Remove the side panel of the guide plate. The side plates of most chainsaws are most likely fixed by two nuts. Unscrew the nut with a wrench or screwdriver, and then remove the plate to access the chain.

After the sprocket plate has been separated from the saw, the old chain can be removed. Pull the nose of the saw blade away from the saw to loosen it from the tensioner. You will find that all slack on the chain can be easily removed from the chain. Remember to find the tension screw on the inside of the guide plate and loosen it slightly. This will make it easier to install the new chain.

(3) How to thread the new chain onto the saw?

After removing the old chain, it is time to replace it with a new chain. You can follow the steps below.

Carefully wrap the new or recently sharpened chainsaw chain around the clutch drum of the chainsaw, making sure that the drive link engages the sprocket.

Screw the remaining drive connecting rod into the guide rod and around its nose.

Then align the guide plate-when the chain is correctly threaded along the clutch drum and the guide plate, pull the nose tip of the guide plate away from the saw, and apply a certain pulling force to it. Then pull the guide rod. Make sure to fasten it to the adjustment pin of the saw. Then replace the side panel. As long as the guide rod is correctly positioned below, the side panel can be reopened.

Replace the plate and the nuts holding it in place, but do not tighten the nuts completely. When the chain is tightened to the correct tension, the guide rod must be allowed to move slightly.

Tighten the chain to the correct tension. Use the tension screw on the side of the guide bar to adjust the tension on the saw chain. Finally, tighten the side plate nuts, and the replacement of the saw chain is complete.
