How Do You Put the Chain Back on a Greenworks Pole Saw?

If your Greenworks pole saw chain has come off, don’t worry – it’s easy to put back on.

Here’s what you need to do:

1. First, make sure that the bar and chain are properly aligned. The bar should be in the center of the guide rails, and the teeth on the chain should be pointing downwards.

2. Next, take the end of the chain with the master link and feed it through the bar from front to back.

3. Now, take the other end of the chain (without the master link) and feed it through the bar from back to front. Make sure that both ends of the chain are now on opposite sides of the bar.

4. Finally, re-attach the master link to join both ends of the chain together. Make sure that all links are properly connected before using your pole saw again.


If your Greenworks pole saw chain is loose, you can tighten it yourself with a few simple steps. First, make sure the chain is properly positioned on the bar. Next, use a wrench to tighten the adjustment screws on either side of the bar until the chain is tight.

Finally, check that the tensioner wheel is in the correct position and that the chainsaw is properly lubricated before using it.
