Break in last night to my work New Forest Garden Machinery in Totton Hampshire. Thieving scum bags peeled back the roof to gain access at 3 am this morning. We think around 10 Stihl chainsaws were stolen. all locked up but the gits were in and out in 3 minutes. We are only a small family run company and things like this really set you back. if offered anything brand new in the hampshire/dorset/wilts area ring the police please. Just sorting through CCTV and serial numbers now so will post up images soon.
I want to know what is the best way to deal with a chainsaw that is straight out of the box. 1. Should it be tuned straight away or wait till its been run-in for approx 20 hours? 2. Should a little extra oil be added to the fuel than normal, to aid in the run-in process? Any other suggestions? I've read others talk and some say its best to go easy and other say you should race the engine from new. I would go easy, but that is not my question for now.
