How to tighten chain on 4620avx poulan pro

First, RTFM- read the manual. Lost it? No problem, download it from Poulan PRO website page for PP4620avx. Pick a version you like, save and read it. Google is your friend.
Chain Adjustment Part cut and pasted as follows:
Adjusting the tension:
Chain tension is very important. Chain stretches during use. This is especially true during the first few times you use your saw. Always check chain tension each time you use and refuel your saw.
1. Lift lever on bar knob and turn counter-clockwise 1.5-2 turns to loosen clutch cover.
2. Turn adjusting wheel (downward direction) to tension chain until chain solidly contacts bottom of guide bar rail. Lift tip of guide bar while adjusting tension. Tighten chain Adjusting Wheel
3. Use a screwdriver to move chain around guide bar to ensure all links are in bar groove.
4. While lifting tip of guide bar, tighten bar knob securely (clockwise).
Hand tighten only.

Be careful not to destroy the adjustment mechanism. When it breaks, go for a clutch cover with the simple adjuster that needs a "scrench". Longer term, learn how to search this info. Saves time. Now you can work on sharpening chains- very important.

My Timberman 45 was in storage a long time, now have it out to use on downed trees. I can't seem to keep the chain tight enough, longer than about 15 minutes. Tricks or suggestions? Thanks.

I would remove the chain and give the guide channel a good cleaning. Use a small blade screwdriver to clean all debris and old bar oil and sawdust. I spray mine down thourghly with WD-40 and wipe dry. I would do the same with the chain to make it has not gotten a little rust on it during storage. Tighten snugly,run for five mins. then recheck and tighten again if needed > If you're still having problems I would try a new chain. Hope this helps.

Need ownewr manual

Your OM here:

I recommend bar and chain oil (SAE 30 with additives to make it adhere) available at hardware stores and home centers.
From your OM, page 9 (edited).
1. Remove oil cap.
2. Fill oil tank with SAE 30 motor oil if the temperature is between 30 & 75°F

Colder use SAE 10 oil.
Warmer use SAE 40 oil.
3. Replace oil cap at once. Tighten oil cap firmly for a good seal. This will avoid oil seepage from tank.
4. Wipe off excess oil.

It is normal for oil to seep when saw is not in use.
Empty oil tank after each use to prevent seepage.

Page 8 has a pretty good chain illustration, I think mine is clearer for direction.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

Loose chain on my 18" timberman

You should have a wrench to fit the hex nut on the side where the bar is. Get a pair of gloves and loosen the nut, on the inside of the bar you will find a screw head that is the adjustment screw, while holding up on the tip of the bar tighten the screw and periodically roll the chain. Lift up on the chain until the bottom of the teeth just about show, release chain and lift up on bar again and SNUG hex nut again checking the chain as above, when satisfied that the teeth are just about exposed tighten the hex nut and roll the chain to ensure that it moves freely. That is it. Let me know if you need anymore help

Fix bar brake on homelite timberman 45

It's a design flaw in timberman chain saws. After some hours of use, they develop a bad habit of not releasing the clutch drum completely. And that takes precious power away from the saw. If it becomes too tight, the clutch drum may over heat and cause the plastic enclosure to warp or melt down. After messing with this brake for months, I ended up completely removing it. Replacing it was not an option for me - there was nothing to replace - it is not the brake band that's bad, but the mechanism in the brake handle of this saw that is flawed. Overall, this chainsaw is very cheaply built - Homelite used waaaay too much plastic in it!
