Chainsaw – A Sculptors Greatest Tool

Chainsaw Tool

For many ice sculptors, a chainsaw is the main weapon of choice. Its ability to make huge cuts through the thickest of ice makes it essential for anyone looking to create an ice masterpiece.

That’s why it is important to take the necessary precautions to make sure it is running at its highest level.

For many it may seem like a tough undertaking, but these simple steps could keep your chainsaw revving for a long time.

Keep It Cutting

Chainsaws have a reservoir for oil that keeps the chain continually lubricated as it moves along the bar. However, this eventually runs out so it is important to check it every once and while to make sure it has enough oil so the chain moves smoothly.

Also, make sure to check the chain tension because if it were to become loose it could potentially damage the bar or the sprocket leading to a big headache for you. In addition to that, inspect around the chainsaw for any other loose parts as well.

Now, this may seem like a no-brainer, but make sure you keep your chainsaw clean.

Take the time to wipe any excess debris off of the case and bar with an oily cloth but be careful not to cut yourself on any of the teeth.
