How to extend life-cycle of my chainsaw?

Best best way of extending the chainsaw life-cycle is to properly maintain it (checking, maintaining and servicing when needed). After each usage remove any wood dust and dirt from the chain brake and clutch drum. Weekly verify that the brake band is at least 0,6 mm thick at its thinnest point. Ensure that the front hand guard is not damaged and that there are no visible defects. Use the maintenance tables from the troubleshooting section to get to know the maintenance details
