Chainsaw Maintenance – NPTC CS30 - SFT Essential Tool Roll

Chainsaw Maintenance – NPTC CS30 - SFT Essential Tool Roll

In response to recent requests I’ve put together a set of basic tools for chainsaw maintenance, typically everything needed to work on the chainsaw and do the maintenance required during Lantra ITA Training and NPTC CS30 assessment. They are now standard issue to clients hiring chainsaws and are also available to buy at cost  (approx £60 a set) The tool roll has 10 pockets, a zipped section and a couple more holders and comprises the following:

 

  • Box/combination spanner
  • Tuning screwdriver
  • Chain Filing Kit – 3 tools, round file & holder, flat file & depth gauge setting tool #
  • Pliers
  • Feeler gauge
  • Screwdrivers flat & pozi
  • Set square
  • Vernier
  • Snowflake for measuring chain pitch, guide bar gauge etc
  • Drive sprocket wear tool
  • Torx screwdriver or allen key*
  • Cleaning brushes
  • Grease gun*
  • Wire hook for fuel filter
  • Sponge to block air filter
  • Gloves (light duty)

#              appropriate to your chain

*               husqvarna or stihl as appropriate

 

Obviously the kit can be expanded, but the real benefit is that a dedicated chainsaw tool kit is readily at hand, can easily be taken into the field and in training and assessment can act as a prompt – why is that set square in there?
