How to Prepare your Chain Saws for Storage in Spring | Washington DC

Chain saws are one tool that tends to get used most during the winter. When you’re done using your chain saw for the season, performing some simple maintenance on it first will ensure you are ready to begin using it right away again come fall.

Let your chain saw run until it is completely out of gas to avoid having gunk build up in the engine while it is sitting. If you’d rather not do this, drain the gasoline out manually into a gas can, or purchase a can of fuel stabilizer and place it in the tank instead.

Brush dirt and debris from the outside of your chain saw, and then pry any wood chips out of the chain with a utility knife or flat-head screwdriver. Next, take a damp cloth and wipe down the chainsaw body to ensure it is perfectly clean.
