Care and maintenance

Jonsered saws are built to survive rough handling in the forest. But naturally they need some looking after to work safely and efficiently. You can do most maintenance yourself using the instruction manual. Your Jonsered dealer has all the spare parts and accessories you need and can naturally help you when the time comes for servicing.

After every shift

Check the chain tension and lubrication. Retension the chain and top up the chain oil if necessary. Get into the habit of refuelling the saw before you put it away for the evening. That way it will always be ready.

At regular intervals

When the air filter starts clogging up with sawdust you should remove the filter and wash it in a little tepid water and mild detergent. How often you need to do this obviously depends on how much you use the saw.

Jonsereds unique turbo air cleaning system removes most of the sawdust from the intake air before it reaches the air filter. So you do not need to clean the air filter on a Jonsered Turbo saw often as you do with most other chainsaws.

Now and then you should also blow the sawdust and dirt out from the cooling fins and brake band.
