Your concrete saw will perform better, last longer, and be safer when you follow the maintenance schedule.
Be sure to keep it clean. After working, rinse the machine with cool water to keep it clean.
Inspections every day. Tighten nuts and screws. Verify the cutting blade fits correctly and is not damaged. Additionally, see if the blade guard is damaged. Also, make sure that the engine stop switch and the throttle trigger lock are operating properly.
Inspections every week. Following one or two tanks of fuel, the tension of a new drive belt should be readjusted on a weekly basis. Make sure that both the muffler and vibration dampening system is visually inspected for cracks. Secure both properly. It could be the carburetor that is causing the engine to lack power or accelerate poorly. Try replacing the air filter first. The carburetor can be cleaned at your servicing dealer if that doesn’t help. The starter cord should be kept in sight. If it’s showing signs of wear, it’s time to replace it
Inspections every month. Check the spark plug if your saw has difficulty starting, runs poorly at idle, or lacks power. To prevent electric shock, ensure that the spark plug cap and ignition lead are not damaged. In addition, if the spark plug is dirty, you should clean it at least monthly.
Examine the fuel hose, the fuel cap, and the fuel seal. If any of them are damaged, they need to be replaced. If the fuel filter becomes clogged, or otherwise once per year, it needs to be replaced. The fuel filter sits inside the fuel tank. You should also check your air filter monthly, especially if your power is out.
