Hi! My name is Matthew Christian from Tampa, Florida and on behalf of Expert Village, today I would like to talk to you about how to properly use and maintain a high limb chain saw. Okay so double check we've got the on switch set to on, the choke is on, primed and now we are ready to give it a pull. Now most likely it won't start right away, could fool me and make a fool out of me. It may start first pull but most two cycle engines usually take a couple two or three pulls before you get any life out of it. Typically what will happen after the first couple or few pulls, it will kind of sputter. It tries to start but it didn't start. Once I get that sputter, I am going to turn the choke off and then keep pulling until it finally starts, so let's give it a try. It started with a couple of pulls so now go ahead and turn the choke off. It seems to be idling okay and we are ready to use.
