General Power Tool Safety Warnings
Read all safety warnings and
all instructions. Failure to fol-
low the warnings and instructions may result
in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers
to your mains-operated (corded) power tool
or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Clut-
tered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explo-
sive atmospheres, such as in the pres-
ence of flammable liquids, gases or
dust. Power tools create sparks which
may ignite the dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool. Distrac-
tions can cause you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the out-
let. Never modify the plug in any way.
Do not use any adapter plugs with
earthed (grounded) power tools. Un-
modified plugs and matching outlets
will reduce risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or
grounded surfaces, such as pipes, ra-
diators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric
shock if your body is earthed or ground-
ed.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or
wet conditions. Water entering a pow-
er tool will increase the risk of electric
shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the
cord for carrying, pulling or unplug-
ging the power tool. Keep cord away
from heat, oil, sharp edges and moving
parts. Damaged or entangled cords in-
crease the risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool out-
doors, use an extension cord suitable
for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable
for outdoor use reduces the risk of elec-
tric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp lo-
cation is unavoidable, use a residual
current device (RCD) protected sup-
ply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of
electric shock.
3) Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing
and use common sense when operat-
ing a power tool. Do not use a power
tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medica-
tion. A moment of inattention while op-
erating power tools may result in seri-
ous personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment.
Always wear eye protection. Protec-
tive equipment such as dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hear-
ing protection used for appropriate
conditions will reduce personal inju-
ries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and/or
battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with
your finger on the switch or energising
power tools that have the switch on in-
vites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench
before turning the power tool on. A
wrench or a key left attached to a rotat-
ing part of the power tool may result in
personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in un-
expected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose
clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair,
clothing and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connec-
tion of dust extraction and collection
facilities, ensure these are connected
and properly used. Use of dust collec-
tion can reduce dust-related hazards.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the
correct power tool for your applica-
tion. The correct power tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for
which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off. Any power
tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be re-
paired.

Bosch Power Tools F 016 L70 758 | (22.11.10)
c) Disconnect the plug from the power
source and/or the battery pack from
the power tool before making any ad-
justments, changing accessories, or
storing power tools. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach
of children and do not allow persons
unfamiliar with the power tool or
these instructions to operate the pow-
er tool. Power tools are dangerous in
the hands of untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for mis-
alignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condi-
tion that may affect the power tool’s
operation. If damaged, have the power
tool repaired before use. Many acci-
dents are caused by poorly maintained
power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained cutting tools with
sharp cutting edges are less likely to
bind and are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and
tool bits etc. in accordance with these
instructions, taking into account the
working conditions and the work to be
performed. Use of the power tool for
operations different from those intend-
ed could result in a hazardous situation.
5) Battery tool use and care
a) Recharge only with the charger speci-
fied by the manufacturer. A charger
that is suitable for one type of battery
pack may create a risk of fire when used
with another battery pack.
b) Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any
other battery packs may create a risk of
injury and fire.
c) When battery pack is not in use, keep
it away from other metal objects, like
paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws
or other small metal objects, that can
make a connection from one terminal
to another. Shorting the battery termi-
nals together may cause burns or a fire.
d) Under abusive conditions, liquid may
be ejected from the battery; avoid con-
tact. If contact accidentally occurs,
flush with water. If liquid contacts
eyes, additionally seek medical help.
Liquid ejected from the battery may
cause irritation or burns.
6) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a
qualified repair person using only
identical replacement parts. This will
ensure that the safety of the power tool
is maintained.
Chain Saw Safety Warnings
f Keep all parts of the body away from the
saw chain when the motor is operating.
Before you start the chain saw, make sure
the saw chain is not contacting anything.
A moment of inattention while operating
chain saws may cause entanglement of
your clothing or body with the saw chain.
f Hold the power tool by insulated gripping
surfaces only, because the saw chain may
contact hidden wiring. Saw chains con-
tacting a “live” wire may make exposed
metal parts of the power tool “live” and
could give the operator an electric shock.
f Always hold the chain saw with your right
hand on the rear handle and your left
hand on the front handle. Holding the
chain saw with a reversed hand configura-
tion increases the risk of personal injury
and should never be done.
f Wear safety glasses and hearing protec-
tion. Further protective equipment for
head, hands, legs and feet is recommend-
ed. Adequate protective clothing will re-
duce personal injury by flying debris or ac-
cidental contact with the saw chain.
f Do not operate a chain saw in a tree. Op-
eration of a chain saw while up in a tree
may result in personal injury.
f Always keep proper footing and operate
the chain saw only when standing on
fixed, secure and level surface. Slippery
or unstable surfaces such as ladders may
cause a loss of balance or control of the
chain saw.
f When cutting a limb that is under tension
be alert for spring back. When the tension
in the wood fibres is released the spring
loaded limb may strike the operator and/or
throw the chain saw out of control.
f Use extreme caution when cutting brush
and saplings. The slender material may
catch the saw chain and be whipped to-
ward you or pull you off balance.
f Carry the chain saw by the front handle
with the chain saw switched off and away
from your body. When transporting or
storing the chain saw, always fit the guide
bar cover. Proper handling of the chain
saw will reduce the likelihood of acciden-
tal contact with the moving saw chain.
f Follow instructions for lubricating, chain
tensioning and changing accessories. Im-
properly tensioned or lubricated chain may
either break or increase the chance for
kickback.
f Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil
and grease. Greasy, oily handles are slip-
pery causing loss of control.
f Cut wood only. Don’t use chain saw for
purposes not intended. For example: do
not use chain saw for cutting plastic, ma-
sonry or non-wood building materials.
Use of the chain saw for operations differ-
ent than intended could result in a hazard-
ous situation.
Causes and operator prevention of kickback:
– Kickback may occur when the nose or tip of
the guide bar touches an object, or when the
wood closes in and pinches the saw chain in
the cut.
– Tip contact in some cases may cause a sud-
den reverse reaction, kicking the guide bar up
and back towards the operator.
– Pinching the saw chain along the top of the
guide bar may push the guide bar rapidly back
towards the operator.
– Either of these reactions may cause you to
lose control of the saw which could result in
serious personal injury. Do not rely exclusively

upon the safety devices built into your saw. As
a chain saw user, you should take several
steps to keep your cutting jobs free from acci-
dent or injury.
Kickback is the result of tool misuse and/or in-
correct operating procedures or conditions
and can be avoided by taking proper precau-
tions as given below:
f Maintain a firm grip, with thumbs and fin-
gers encircling the chain saw handles,
with both hands on the saw and position
your body and arm to allow you to resist
kickback forces. Kickback forces can be
controlled by the operator, if proper pre-
cautions are taken. Do not let go of the
chain saw.
f Do not overreach and do not cut above
shoulder height. This helps prevent unin-
tended tip contact and enables better con-
trol of the chain saw in unexpected situa-
tions.
f Only use replacement bars and chains
specified by the manufacturer. Incorrect
replacement bars and chains may cause
chain breakage and/or kickback.
f Follow the manufacturer’s sharpening
and maintenance instructions for the saw
chain. Decreasing the depth gauge height
can lead to increased kickback.
Additional safety warnings
f It is recommended that the first time user
should have practical instruction in the use
of the chainsaw and the protective equip-
ment from an experienced operator. The
initial practice should be cutting logs on a
saw horse or cradle.
f This tool is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of
experience and knowledge, unless they
have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a per-
son responsible for their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure
that they do not play with the appliance.
f Children and juveniles, with the excep-
tion of apprentices older than 16 years
and under supervision, may not operate
the chain saw. The same applies for per-
sons who do not or do not sufficiently
know how to handle the chain saw. The
operating instructions should always be
ready to hand. Persons unfit or tired must
not operate the chain saw.
f When working with the machine, always
hold it firmly with both hands and pro-
vide for a secure stance. The power tool is
guided more secure with both hands.
f Always ensure all handles and guards are
fitted when using the machine. Never at-
tempt to use an incomplete machine or one
fitted with an unauthorized modification.
f Wait until the machine has come to a
standstill before placing it down.
f Do not open the battery. Danger of short-
circuiting.
Protect the battery against heat,
e. g., against continuous intense
sunlight, fire, water, and moisture.
Danger of explosion.
f In case of damage and improper use of
the battery, vapours may be emitted. Pro-
vide for fresh air and seek medical help in
case of complaints. The vapours can irri-
tate the respiratory system.
f When the battery is defective, liquid can
escape and come into contact with adja-
cent components. Check any parts con-
cerned. Clean such parts or replace them,
if required.
f Use the battery only in conjunction with
your Bosch power tool. This measure
alone protects the battery against danger-
ous overload.
f Use only original Bosch batteries with the
voltage listed on the nameplate of your
power tool. When using other batteries,
e. g. imitations, reconditioned batteries or
other brands, there is danger of injury as
well as property damage through explod-
ing batteries.
Safety Warnings for battery chargers
Keep the battery charger away
from rain or moisture. Penetration
of water in the battery charger in-
creases the risk of an electric shock.
f Do not charge other batteries. The battery
charger is suitable only for charging Bosch
lithium ion batteries within the listed volt-
age range. Otherwise there is danger of
fire and explosion.
f Keep the battery charger clean. Contami-
nation can lead to danger of an electric
shock.
f Before each use, check the battery charg-
er, cable and plug. If damage is detected,
do not use the battery charger. Never
open the battery charger yourself. Have
repairs performed only by a qualified
technician and only using original spare
parts. Damaged battery chargers, cables
and plugs increase the risk of an electric
shock.
f Do not operate the battery charger on
easily inflammable surfaces (e. g., paper,
textiles, etc.) or surroundings. The heat-
ing of the battery charger during the charg-
ing process can pose a fire hazard.
f Children should be supervised to ensure
that they do not play with the battery
charger.
f Children or persons with mental or phys-
ical limitations may only use the charger
under supervision or after having been in-
structed. A thorough introduction reduces
operating errors and injuries.
Products sold in GB only: Your product is fit-
ted with an BS 1363/A approved electric plug
with internal fuse (ASTA approved to
BS 1362).
If the plug is not suitable for your socket out-
lets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted in its place by an authorised cus-
tomer service agent. The replacement plug
should have the same fuse rating as the origi-
nal plug.
The severed plug must be disposed of to
avoid a possible shock hazard and should nev-
er be inserted into a mains socket elsewhere.

Noise/Vibration Information
Measured sound values determined accord-
ing to 2000/14/EC.
Typically the A-weighted noise levels of the
product are: Sound pressure level 74 dB(A);
sound power level 94 dB(A). Uncertainty
K=3 dB.
Wear hearing protection!
Vibration total values (triax vector sum) deter-
mined according to EN 60745:
Vibration emission value ah <2.5 m/s2
, Uncer-
tainty K =1.5 m/s2
.
The vibration emission level given in this infor-
mation sheet has been measured in accord-
ance with a standardised test given in EN
60745 and may be used to compare one tool
with another. It may be used for a preliminary
assessment of exposure.
The declared vibration emission level repre-
sents the main applications of the tool. How-
ever if the tool is used for different applica-
tions, with different accessories or poorly
maintained, the vibration emission may differ.
This may significantly increase the exposure
level over the total working period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vi-
bration should also take into account the
times when the tool is switched off or when it
is running but not actually doing the job. This
may significantly reduce the exposure level
over the total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect
the operator from the effects of vibration
such as: maintain the tool and the accesso-
ries, keep the hands warm, organisation of
work patterns.

Battery Charging (see figure B)
f Do not use other battery chargers. The
supplied battery charger is designed for
the Lithium-Ion battery in your machine.
f Observe the mains voltage! The voltage of
the power supply must correspond with
the data given on the nameplate of the bat-
tery charger. Battery chargers marked with
230 V can also be operated with 220 V.
The battery is equipped with temperature
monitoring that allows charging only in the
temperature range between 0 °C and 45 °C.
In this manner, a high battery service life is
achieved.
Note: The battery is supplied partially
charged. To ensure full capacity of the bat-
tery, completely charge the battery in the bat-
tery charger before using your power tool for
the first time.
The lithium-ion battery can be charged at any
time without reducing its service life. Inter-
rupting the charging procedure does not dam-
age the battery.
The “Electronic Cell Protection (ECP)” pro-
tects the lithium ion battery against deep dis-
charging. When the battery is run down or dis-
charged, the chain saw is shut off by means of
a protective circuit: The saw chain no longer
moves.
Do not continue to press the
On/Off switch after the ma-
chine has been automatically switched off.
The battery can be damaged.
Charging Procedure
The charging procedure starts as soon as the
mains plug of the battery charger is plugged
into the socket outlet and the battery 17 is in-
serted into the charging compartment 22.
Due to the intelligent charging method, the
charging condition of the battery is automati-
cally detected and the battery is charged with
the optimum charging current, depending on
battery temperature and voltage.
This gives longer life to the battery and always
leaves it fully charged when kept in the charg-
er for storage.
Meaning of the Indication Elements
Control of the charging procedure is indicated
via the charge control LEDs 24 and 25:
Rapid-charging Procedure
The rapid-charging procedure is indicated by
flashing of the green charge control LED 25.
Indication element of the battery: During the
charging procedure, the three green LEDs
light up one after the other and briefly go out.
The battery is fully charged when the three
green LEDs light up continuously. The three
LEDs go out again approx. 5 minutes after the
battery has been fully charged.
Note: The rapid-charging procedure is only
possible when the battery temperature is
within the allowable charging temperature
range, see section “Technical Data”.
Battery Charged
Continuous lighting of the green charge
control LED 25 signals that the battery is fully
charged.
Additionally, a signal tone sounds for approx.
2 seconds, which acoustically indicates that
the battery is fully charged.
Afterwards, the battery can be removed for
immediate use.
With no battery inserted, continuous lighting
of the green charge control LED 25 indicates
that the mains plug is plugged into the socket
and that the battery charger is ready for oper-
ation.
Battery Temperature below 0 °C and above
45 °C
Continuous lighting of the red LED 24 indi-
cates that the battery temperature is not with-
in the rapid-charging temperature range of
0 °C – 45 °C. As soon as the allowable tem-
perature range is reached, the battery charger
automatically switches to rapid charging.
When the battery is not within the allowable
temperature range, the red battery LED lights
up when inserting the battery into the battery
charger.
No charging procedure possible
If a different malfunction of the charging pro-
cedure is present, this will be indicated
through flashing of the red charge control
LED 24.
The charging procedure cannot be started
and the battery cannot be charged (see “Trou-
bleshooting”).
Charging Advice
With continuous or several repetitive charging
cycles without interruption, the charger can
warm up. This is not meaningful and does not
indicate a technical defect of the battery
charger.

A significantly reduced working period after
charging indicates that the battery is used
and must be replaced.
Observe the notes for disposal.
Battery Cooling (Active Air Cooling)
The fan control integrated in the battery
charger controls the temperature of the in-
serted battery. When the battery temperature
is above 30 °C, a fan cools down the battery
to the optimal charging temperature. The
switched-on fan produces a fan noise.
The battery temperature is within the optimal
charging temperature range when the fan is
not running. Another reason for a non working
fan might be that it is defective. In this case,
the charging time of the battery might be ex-
tended.
Mounting and Tensioning the Chain
Saw (see figures C1–C3)
f Do not insert battery before the chain
saw is completely assembled.
f Always wear protective gloves when han-
dling the chain.
Chain and Chain Bar Assembly
– Unpack all parts carefully.
– Place the chain saw on any suitable flat
surface.
f Use only chains with a drive link thick-
ness of 1.1 mm.
– Slide the saw chain 11 in the slot around
the chain bar 10. Ensure the saw chain is
in the correct running direction by compar-
ing the saw chain with the rotation symbol
27 on bar 10.
– Fit the chain onto the drive sprocket 28
and guide the chain bar 10, so that the fas-
tening bolt 29 and the two guide fins 32 fit
into the keyway of the chain bar 10, and
that the chain tensioning pegs 30 fits into
the respective holes of the chain bar 10.
If necessary, turn the chain tensioning
knob 15 to bring tensioning pegs 30 in
alignment with the hole in the chain bar
10.
– Check if all parts are seated properly and
hold the chain bar and the chain in this po-
sition.
– Turn the chain tensioning knob 15 until all
the slack is taken up in the saw chain 11.
– Fit the cover 13 exactly and take care that
the chain catch bolt 33 engages into the
groove of the cover plate 13.
– Lightly tighten the cover 13 with the lock-
ing knob 12.
– The chain is not yet tensioned. The saw
chain is tensioned as described in section
“Tensioning the Saw Chain”.
Tensioning the Saw Chain (see figure D)
Always check the chain tension before use, af-
ter the first cuts and regularly during use ap-
prox. every 10 minutes. Upon initial opera-
tion, new chains can lengthen considerably.
The chain life of the saw chain mainly de-
pends upon sufficient lubrication and correct
tensioning.
Avoid tensioning the chain if it is hot, as this
will cause the chain to become overtensioned
and face too tightly against the chain bar
when it cools down.
– Place the chain saw on any suitable flat
surface.
– Loosen locking knob 12 until it is just hold-
ing chain bar 10 in position (do not re-
move!).
– Check if the chain links are correctly locat-
ed in the slot around the chain bar 10 and
on the drive sprocket 28.
– Turn chain tensioning knob 15 clockwise
until the correct chain tension is reached.
The turning action forces the chain bar 10
forward via the chain tensioning pegs 30.
– The saw chain 11 is correctly tensioned
when it can be raised approx. 5–10 mm
from the chain bar in the centre. This
should be done by using one hand to raise
the saw chain against the weight of the ma-
chine.
– If the saw chain 11 is overtensioned, slight-
ly turn the chain tensioning knob 15 anti-
clockwise and re-check chain tension. Re-
adjust chain tension as described if neces-
sary.
– Tighten the cover 13 with the locking knob
12.
Saw-chain Lubrication
(see figures C1 and E)
Note: The chain saw is not supplied filled with
oil. It is essential to fill with oil before use. Op-
erating the chain saw without chain oil or
when the oil level is below the minimum mark
will result in damage to the chain saw.
Chain life and cutting capacity depend on op-
timum lubrication. Therefore, the chain is au-
tomatically lubricated with chain oil during
operation via the oil outlet 31.
Filling the oil reservoir:
– Set chain saw on any suitable surface with
the oil filler cap 4 facing upward.
– Clean area around the oil filler cap 4 with a
cloth and unscrew the cap.
– Add Bosch biodegradable chain saw oil un-
til oil level reads “max” on oil level gauge 7.
– Avoid dirt or debris from entering the oil
reservoir. Screw on oil filler cap 4 again
and tighten.
– Run chainsaw for 30 seconds to “prime”
oil system.
Note: To allow venting of the oil reservoir,
small breather channels are provided be-
tween the oil filler cap. To prevent leakage en-
sure chain saw is left in a horizontal position
(oil filler cap 4 uppermost) when not in use.
Note: It is important to use only the recom-
mended biodegradable oil to avoid damage to
the chain saw. Never use recycled/old oil. Use
of non approved oil will invalidate the warran-
ty.
Note: Oil becomes denser at lower tempera-
tures which decreases the flow rate of oil.

Bosch Power Tools F 016 L70 758 | (22.11.10)
Operation
Initial Operation
Inserting the Battery
Insert the charged battery 17 from the rear in-
to the handle of the power tool. Push the bat-
tery completely into the handle until the red
stripe can no longer be seen and the battery
is securely locked.
Note: The power tool will not operate unless
both locking levels are engaged.
Switching On and Off
Hold the chain saw as described in section
“Working with the Chain Saw”.
To start the machine, first push the lock-off
button for the On/Off switch 2 and then press
the On/Off switch 3 and keep it pressed.
When the machine is running, the lock-off but-
ton can be released again.
To switch off the machine, release the On/Off
switch 3.
Note: For safety reasons, the On/Off switch 3
cannot be locked; it must remain pressed dur-
ing the entire operation.
Note: Do not stop chain saw after sawing by
actuating the front hand guard 6 (activating
the kickback brake).
Kickback brake (see figure F)
The kickback brake is a safety mechanism ac-
tivated through the front hand guard 6 when
kickback occurs. Chain stop response time is
0,15 seconds.
The following function check should be car-
ried out at regular intervals. Push front hand
guard 6 forward (position o) and start the
chain saw. The chain must not start. To deac-
tivate the kickback brake, release On/Off
switch 3 and pull hand guard 6 backwards
(position n).
Note: When the kick brake is activated and
the chain saw is attempted to be started a
warning sound (“beep”) can be heard. To
start chain saw release On/Off switch 3 and
pull hand guard 6 backwards (position n),
then press the On/Off switch 3.
Working with the Chain Saw
Before Cutting
Before starting operation and periodically
during cutting, carry out the following checks:
– Is the chain saw in a fail-safe condition?
– Is the oil reservoir filled? Check oil level
gauge prior to starting and regularly during
operation. Refill oil when oil level has
reached the bottom edge of the viewing
glass. The oil tank filling will last approx.
15 minutes, depending on sawing intensity
and stops.
– Is the saw chain properly tensioned and
sharp? Check chain tension every 10 min-
utes during operation. Upon initial opera-
tion, new chains can lengthen considera-
bly. The condition of the chain influences
the cutting performance. Only a sharp
chain protects from overload.
– Is the kickback brake deactivated and its
function ensured?
– Are you wearing the required protective
equipment? Wear safety glasses and hear-
ing protection. Further protective equip-
ment for head, hands, legs and feet is rec-
ommended. Suitable protective clothing
reduces the danger of injury from thrown
about cutting material and accidental
touching of the saw chain.
Kickback (see figure F)
Kickback is the sudden backward/upward
motion of the chain saw, occuring when the
chain (at the tip of the chain bar) comes in
contact with a log or wood, or when the chain
becomes jammed.
When kickback occurs, the chainsaw reacts
unpredictable and can cause heavy injuries to
the operator or bystanders.
Particular attention must be given when saw-
ing sidewards, slanted or during length cuts,
as the gripping teeth 8 usually can not be ap-
plied.
To avoid kickback:
– Saw with the chain bar at a flat angle.
– Never work with a loose, widely stretched
or heavily worn out saw chain.
– Sharpen the saw chain as specified.
– Never saw above shoulder height.
– Never work with the tip of the chain.
– Always hold a chain saw firmly with both
hands.
– Always use a Bosch low-kickback saw chain.
– Apply the metal gripping teeth 8 for leverage.
– Ensure correct chain tension.
General Behaviour (see figures F – I)
Always hold the chain saw firmly with both
hands. Front handle with the left hand and
rear handle with the right hand. Fully grip
both handles with thumb and fingers at all
times during operation. Never operate chain
saw using only one hand.
Use the chain saw only with secure footing.
Hold the chain saw at the right-hand side of
your body.
The chain must be running at full speed be-
fore it makes contact with the wood. Use the
gripping teeth 8 to support the chain saw on
the wood. Use the gripping teeth as a leverage
point while cutting.
Reset the gripping teeth at a lower point
when sawing thicker logs or tree trunks. For
this, pull the chain saw slightly backwards un-
til the gripping teeth release, and reposition
at lower level to continue sawing. Do not re-
move the chain saw completely out of the cut.
Do not force the saw chain while cutting, let
the chain do the work, using the gripping
teeth 8 to apply minimal leverage pressure.
Never operate the chain saw with arms fully
extended. Do not attempt to saw areas which
are difficult to reach, or on a ladder. Never
saw above shoulder height.
Sawing is optimized when the chain speed re-
mains steady during cutting.
Beware when reaching the end of the cut. The
weight of the chain saw changes unexpected-
ly as it cuts free from the wood. Danger of in-
jury to the legs and feet.
Always remove the chain saw from a wood cut
while the saw chain is running.

28 | English
Cutting Logs (see figures G and J)
When cutting logs, observe the following safe-
ty instructions:
Support logs so that the face sides at the cut
do not close in against each other, which
would result in the chain being jammed.
Position and set short logs safely before saw-
ing.
Saw only wood or wooden objects. When
sawing, always take care to avoid hitting
stones, nails, etc., as these could be thrown
up, could cause damage to the chain, or could
result in serious injury to the operator or by-
standers.
Keep a running chain saw clear of wire fencing
or the ground.
Use of the saw to thin out branches or bushes
is not approved.
Length cuts must be carried out with particu-
lar care, as leverage with the gripping teeth 8
is not possible. Saw at a flat angle to avoid
kickback.
When working on a slope, operate above or to
the side of the trunk or laying tree.
Be careful not to trip over tree stumps,
branches, roots, etc.
Cutting Wood under Tension (see figure J)
f Be extremely careful when sawing wood,
branches or trees under tension. Leave
saw jobs like these to trained profession-
als. There is a high risk of accidents.
When sawing logs supported on both ends,
start the cut from above (Y) about one third of
the diameter into the log and then finish the
cut at the same spot from below (Z), in order
to avoid splitting of the log or jamming of the
saw. Avoid contact of the saw chain with the
ground.
When sawing logs supported on only one end,
start the cut from below (Y) about one third of
the diameter into the log and then finish the
cut at the same spot from above (Z), in order
to avoid splitting of the log or jamming of the
saw.
Felling Trees (see figure K)
f Always wear hard hat to protect head
against falling branches.
f The chain saw may only be used to fell
trees smaller in diameter than the length
of the chain bar.
f Secure the work area. Ensure no persons
or animals are in the vicinity of the falling
tree (n).
f Never attempt to free a jammed chain
saw with the motor running. Use wooden
wedges to free a jammed chain saw.
When cutting and felling operations are being
performed by two or more persons at the
same time, the felling operations should be
separated from the cutting operations by a
distance of at least twice the height of the
tree being felled. Trees should not be felled in
a manner that would endanger any person,
strike any utility line or cause any property
damage. If the tree does make contact with a
utility line, the company should be notified
immediately.
The chain saw operator should keep on the
uphill side of the terrain as the tree is likely to
roll or slide downhill after it is felled.
An escape path (o) should be planned and
cleared as necessary before cuts are started.
The escape path should extend back and diag-
onally to the rear of the expected line of fall.
Before felling is started, consider the natural
lean of the tree, the location of larger branch-
es and the wind direction to judge which way
the tree will fall.
Remove dirt, stones, loose bark, nails, sta-
ples, and wire from the tree.
Notching undercut: Make the notch (X – W)
1/3 the diameter of the tree, perpendicular to
the direction of fall. Make the lower horizontal
notching cut first. This will help to avoid
pinching either the saw chain or the guide bar
when the second notch is being made.
Felling back-cut: Make the felling back-cut (Y)
at least 50 mm higher than the horizontal
notching cut. Carry out the felling back-cut
parallel to the horizontal notching cut. Make
the felling back-cut so that enough wood is
left to act as a hinge. The hinge-wood keeps
the tree from twisting and falling in the wrong
direction. Do not cut through the hinge.
As the felling gets close to the hinge, the tree
should begin to fall. If there is any chance that
the tree may not fall in the desired direction
or may rock back and bind the saw chain, stop
cutting before the felling back-cut is complete
and use wedges of wood, plastic or aluminium
to open the cut and drop the tree along the
desired line of fall.
When the tree begins to fall, remove the chain
saw from the cut, stop the motor, put the
chain saw down, then use the retreat path
planned. Be alert for overhead limbs falling
and watch your footing.
Drive a wedge (Z) into the horizontal cut to
make the tree fall.
When the tree begins to fall, leave the danger
area via the retreat path planned. Be alert for
overhead limbs falling and watch your footing.
Limbing a Tree (see figure L)
Limbing is removing the branches from a fall-
en tree. When limbing, leave larger lower
limbs to support the log off the ground. Re-
move the small limbs in one cut as illustrated
in the figure. Branches under tension should
be cut from the bottom up to avoid binding
the chain saw.
Bucking a Log (see figures M – P)
Bucking is cutting a log into lengths. It is im-
portant to make sure your footing is firm and
your weight is evenly distributed on both feet.
When possible, the log should be raised and
supported by the use of limbs, logs or chocks.
Follow the simple directions for easy cutting.
When the log is supported along its entire
length, it is cut from the top (overbuck).
When the log is supported on one end, cut 1/3
the diameter from the underside (under-
buck). Then make the finished cut by over-
bucking to meet the first cut.
When the log is supported on both ends, cut
1/3 the diameter from the top overbuck. Then
make the finished cut by underbucking the
lower 2/3 to meet the first cut.

Bosch Power Tools F 016 L70 758 | (22.11.10)
When bucking on a slope, always stand on the
uphill side of the log. When “cutting through”,
release the cutting pressure near the end of
the cut without relaxing your grip on the chain
saw handles in order to maintain complete
control. Don’t let the chain contact the
ground. After completing the cut, wait for the
saw chain to stop before you move the chain
saw. Always stop the chain saw motor before
moving from tree to tree.
Battery Charge-control Indication
(see figure B)
The battery 17 is equipped with a charge-con-
trol indicator 20 which indicates its charge
condition. The charge-control indicator 20
consists of 3 green LEDs.
Press the button 19 to actuate the charge-
control indicator 20. After approx. 5 seconds,
the charge-control indicator goes out auto-
matically.
The charge condition can also be checked
when the battery is removed.
When no LED lights up after actuating the but-
ton 19, the battery is defective and must be
replaced.
For safety reasons, the charge condition of
the battery can only be checked when the
power tool is at a standstill.
During the charging procedure, the three
green LEDs light up one after the other and
briefly go out. The battery is fully charged
when the three green LEDs light up continu-
ously. The three LEDs go out again approx.
5 minutes after the battery has been fully
charged.
Temperature Control Indicator
The red LED of the temperature control indi-
cator 21 signals that the battery or the elec-
tronics of the power tool (when the battery is
inserted) are not within the optimum temper-
ature range. In this case, the power tool will
not operate at full capacity.
Temperature Control of the Battery
The red LED 21 flashes when pushing button
19 or pressing the On/Off switch 3 (when the
battery is inserted): The battery is not wihin
the temperature range for operation of
–10 °C to +60 °C.
The battery switches off at a temperature
above 70 °C until the optimum temperature
range is reached again.
Temperature control of the power tool elec-
tronics
The red LED 21 lights up continuously when
pressing the On/Off switch 3: The tempera-
ture of the machine’s electronics is below
5 °C or above 75 °C.
At a temperature above 90 °C , the electron-
ics of the power tool switch off until the tem-
perature is within the allowable temperature
range again.

Maintenance and Service
Maintenance and Cleaning
f Warning: Switch off and remove battery
from power tool before adjusting or
cleaning.
Note: To ensure long and reliable service, car-
ry out the following maintenance regularly.
For safe and proper working, always keep the
power tool and its ventilation slots clean.
Regulary check the chain saw for obvious de-
fects such as loose, dislodged or damaged
saw chain and chain bar, loose fixings and
worn or damaged components.
Check that covers and guards are undamaged
and correctly fitted. Carry out necessary
maintenance or repairs before using.
If the chain saw should fail despite the care
taken in manufacture and testing, repair
should be carried out by an authorised cus-
tomer services agent for Bosch power tools.
Note: Before returning the chain saw, ensure
all oil in the oil reservoir has been emptied.
In all correspondence and spare parts orders,
please always include the 10-digit article
number given on the type plate of the chain
saw.
Replacing/Changing the Saw Chain and
Chain Bar (see figures C1–C3)
Check the saw chain and chain bar according
to section “Tensioning the Saw Chain”.
The circular groove of the chain bar will wear
particularly on the lower edge with time.
When replacing the saw chain, turn the chain
bar by 180° to allow even wear, thus extend-
ing chain bar life.
Check the drive sprocket 28. If it is worn out
or damaged due to strain, have it exchanged
by an authorized Bosch after-sales service.
Sharpening the Saw Chain
Have your chain sharpened professionally at
your authorized Bosch after-sales service or
sharpen the chain yourself using the Bosch
sharpening kit or the Dremel Multi power tool
with the appropriate grinder (1453). Observe

Checking the Automatic Oiler
Proper functioning of the automatic saw chain
oiler can be checked by running the chain saw
and pointing the tip of the chain bar towards
a piece of cardboard or paper on the ground.
Do not touch the ground with the chain and
ensure a safety clearance of 20 cm. If an in-
creasing oil pattern developes, the automatic
oiler is operating fine. If there is no oil pattern
despite a full oil reservoir, see section “Trou-
bleshooting” or contact your authorized
Bosch after-sales service.
After Use/Storage
Clean the moulded plastic housing of the
chain saw using a soft brush and clean cloth.
Do not use water, solvents or polishes. Re-
move all debris, especially from the motor
cooling vents.
After 1 – 3 hours of use, remove the cover 13,
the chain bar 10 and the saw chain 11, and
clean them using a brush.
Clean the area under the cover 13, the drive
sprocket 28 and the chain bar assembly from
adherant debris using a brush. Clean the oil
outlet 31 with a clean cloth.
If the chain saw is to be stored for a longer pe-
riod of time, clean the saw chain 11 and the
chain bar 10.
Store the chain saw in a secure, dry place, out
of the reach of children.
Do not place other objects on the power tool.
Please take care to place down the chain saw
with the oil filler cap 4 facing upward.
When storing in the sales packaging, the oil
reservoir must be completely emptied.
