One of the guide bar nuts appears to have fallen off and is now lost. How do I get a replacement bar guide nut?

Asked by Amit July 7, 2020

Answers

That is a metric 8M x 1.25 nut. That is a very common nut either in hardware or auto stores but the Blue Max nut has a flange with grooves on the back to prevent nut from loosening. That is less common. If you can't find one, buy a plain nut & use a star type lock washer with internal teeth. You can use either an 8mm or 5/16 inch star type internal spur or teeth lock washer.

Don't buy one of these. They run great, and are great for the money, but if one small plastic part breaks they can't be fixed. Was great for a year, then a part broke, and that was it

Spent some time looking for the right saw. Could have spent a lot more, but this saw has proven itself so far. After receiving it, slapped it together oiled and fueled up and went to work. It sliced through the trunk of our old elm tree like butter. It did a great job so far and has been reliable. Just had this thing a month so we'll see how long it lasts but so far this is a winner.

I used the chainsaw for about an hour on 5 occasions. Then while sawing a large log the engine stopped and I could not restart it. I removed the spark plug and saw a hole in the piston. I contacted the company and they said they do not have service and to take it to any repair shop. The shops near me require $100 deposit to diagnose the problem.

Easy to assemble, instructions where easy, started right up note make sure to use right gas mixture, I use pre- mixture so takes guess work out of it although you will pay alittle more but I use that in all my small equipment that requires it and I never have problems with the starting. Tried blue max as soon as I got it and I cut about four trees and it cut them like butter, note make sure the chain is well oiled before starting it, don't dry start it ! I just rub oil on it first the afterwards the auto oiler seem to work fine.

Like many others who purchased this chainsaw I had a one off project. An old maple in my yard came down and rather then pay someone else to clean it up I purchased this saw to DIY it. Instructions to put it together were for the most part straight forward so if I can do it most people should have no trouble. As far as operation goes this saw does have plenty of power. Keep the chain oil full and it should work fine for you. I imagine if you have a big property and need a saw for everyday use you may want to invest in something higher end. But for small projects or once or twice a year projects why spend more.

Had a tree service drop 6 big trees and I decided to keep the wood so I needed a chain saw. The diameters varied from 6"- 18" so this 22" Blue Max caught my eye. It's dirt cheap and Chinese made...but none of them are made here anyway...So I checked the reviews...more good than bad... So I bought it along with some Echo bar oil and some Trufuel. Best dang chain saw I ever used! Starts right up, chews right through the hard woods no sweat. See the picture. The chain does stretch a bit so the first three or four times I fueled it I adjusted the chain. Just keep the bar oil filled and don't hit any rocks or nails and it will last. Still cuts like new after all that wood.
