How to Properly Adjust the Tension on a Chain Saw

By Danny Lanier from Lanier Lawn Care

To make sure you get the best performance from your chain saw, knowing how to properly adjust the chain tension is key.

In this video, I wanted to share some of my tips for making sure the tension is perfect, whether you use a small or big chainsaw:

  • How to make sure you have the chain tight enough

  • How to test for the right tension when spinning the chain

  • How to use a quick visual test to check tension

While I use the ECHO CS-590 Timber Wolf in this video, these tips will work with other chain saws as well.
