Adjusting a McCullough electromatic chainsaw's break.

Adjusting a McCullough electromatic chainsaw's break.

What causes the break to stop the saw w/o touching the break's bar (vibration or pressure on bar's tip)? Or! Is it a cleaning or adjustment matter? So far adjusting in both directions has not helped. Do you know of a link that shows how the adjustment works? Electromatic 12" Chainsaw # EM12A. This is a quiet alternate to starting a gas saw for minor cutting of about 6" and smaller wood shorter. Thanks for any info in advance. loger

Rcmoser, I feel the chain break heard your suggestion. Plus, knowing I'm just as Old School or Older, no problems since. LOL. The Monster has not faltered once since I torqued it above what I would have expected. If it ever falters again, the noise you'll hear will be the chain break coming off. Take Care! loger

PS. The Monster Gets Small Jobs Done vs Pulling A Gas Saw.
