Why is my McCulloch CS50 chainsaw not cutting properly?

Hi Guys,

I have a MCCulloch CS50 chainsaw and it was working perfectly for the last year, but lately I need to press really hard to get the good cut. I also realized that the cutting chips got much smaller than they were before. Any idea what is going on?


Hi Ben,

From what you have described it looks that your chain needs sharpening, and most probably also lubrication. I saw somewhere on this page direction how to sharpen the chain. Good luck
