Welcome back again everybody: Ryan here with Wild Badger Power. Today we’re going to talk about
assembling of our pole saws. There are two pull saw skews out there. We have a fixed pole saw and
the articulating pole saw. The articulating pole saw comes in the 4-in-1 kit like we talked
about earlier and we’re just going to talk about the assembly of this one. They are virtually
identical so there’s really only a need to do one. So we are going to take and put this one aside
and we are going to pop open this box and do a quick assembly. So when you can you get your tool,
you pop it open. Inside, you will find your bar, your 10-inch chain, your pole saw and the scavern
along with the quick instruction manual, excuse me, on how to use it. So when we go ahead and assemble
this, all right. We’re going to go ahead and first remove the sprocket cover. This right here
is a 10 millimeter nut, all right, so you’re going to need a 10 millimeter wrench at some point
in this process. when you go to cinch things back together again. We’re going to remove the sprocket
cover and then the next thing we’re going to want to do is take our bar and we’re going to want to
kind of slide it over here, all right. You’ll see there’s a pin and this pin is really the tensioner
and sometimes this little pin, it’s going to require you to kind of move it back a little bit,
all right, so that you can get the slack you need to get the chain on easily. A lot of folks struggle
when this pin is this far forward, all right. The bar, you know, is this far out and the chain won’t
loop over the sprocket. So you’re going to want to adjust this first to bring this back so that
this bar is all the way back so that you can get the chain over the bar and over the sprocket. The
next thing we’re going to do, is we’re going to take the chain once we’ve made that adjustment,
all right, and making sure, all right, that the sharp end of the blade facing forward on the top
and pushing and pulling back on the bottom. This is very important to do this as you’re operating
it. If you do it the other way, chains on backwards and you’re not going to cut anything, but what
happens is those teeth are going to dig in and pull this saw up into the limb, all right, and give
you that nice smooth cutting edge that you’re looking for. All right, so now what we’re going
to do, we’re going to loop this over the top. Okay, so now what we’re going to do is we’re gonna
take this bar and chain and we’re going to slide it over the sprocket

and you’ll see right here, we’re in that set pin. And now what we’re going to do is kind of rotate
this through to make sure that we’re in the groove on the bar, all right, with our dry teeth, all
right. Now we’re in position here, all right. We’re going to take our cover, slide that over
the top. and we’re going to just hand tighten this at first, all right? And the reason that we’re
going to hand tighten this at first, is we need to tension this chain, all right, so that’s not
so loose. So you see how loose that is? We’re going to take this, we’re going to slide it forward
and you’ll notice you have a tensioner knob right here, all right, and you need a slotted screwdriver
for this. So we’re going to take this, and we’re going to do it, like you normally would – righty
tighty, lefty loosey – all right, until it snugs up. You can feel it snug. Now, I’ve got my – now
I’ve got my chain nice and snug. Then I’m going to take my 10 millimeter wrench, then I’m going
to snug down this and this will lock the bar in place, making sure that your chain is good and tight.
You are now almost ready to go and do a little bit of cutting. Next step would be to take any spray
and bar oil that you’d like, and pop that right in there to make sure that your bar is properly
oiled, lockdown cap, all right, and you are ready to go and trim some trees.
