Buying and preparing for work
- A lot of fakes of original Daewoo products have appeared on the market, so we recommend buying the Daewoo DACS 4516 chainsaw only from official dealers of the company or from proven sellers.
- In order to determine where and by whom this or that tool was manufactured, we recommend studying the markings of individual parts and accompanying documents;
- Before you buy the tool, check the power of the engine and other chainsaw systems to make sure it is in good condition;
- Before you start working with the Dawoo DACS 451 6-Saus saw, inspect the unit, read the instruction manual and safety regulations.
- Assemble the saw headset according to the recommendations in the instruction manual.
Important: Observe the correct chain setting. When properly tensioned, the chain will rotate slightly on the bar without either limb sagging under its own weight.
- Prepare the fuel, prime the engine and fill the automatic lubrication system.
- Check the chainsaw housing for gasoline and oil leaks, and if you find any, correct the cause of the leak.
- Reassemble the engine according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and obey the safety instructions.
Fuel and Lubricants
The DAWOO DACS 4516 chainsaw is equipped with a two-cylinder internal combustion engine. Such engines need fuel, which consists of two ingredients: gasoline and oil. When preparing the fuel mix it is recommended to use high quality, high octane gasoline AI92-95 and engine oil for two-stroke engines in the oil/gas ratio of 1/50.
Important: Daewoo chain saws do not need a special running-in period. However, it is recommended to run 5-7 oil tanks sparingly to increase the moto and power of the engine. In this case, you will not overheat the engine and see thick tree trunks.
Some owners of gasoline-powered saws use diesel or transformer oil, disgusting or even waste fluid as a lubricant. This is unacceptable. Only fill the automatic saw head lubrication system with high-quality chain oils. This improves tool performance and prolongs tool life.

What people write on forums: Reviews of chain saw Daewoo DACS 4516 owners
Semyon Poyarkov, 32, Tver region:
Small, but quite powerful chainsaw at a very reasonable price. I use the model for the fourth year, during this time I have replaced the drive sprocket and several chains, everything else is still at home, including the tire. The power of the engine is enough both for repair work and for cutting firewood. Personal trees with a fuselage diameter of up to 70 centimeters. The tool mastered, the engine did not overheat, although such work should be carried out rarely, is it worth considering – this is not a professional model. I believe that the chainsaw Dawoo DACS 4516 on the price/quality ratio is not inferior to the best brand tools.
Yaroslav Velikanov, 44, Novgorod region:
I bought the chainsaw on the advice of a relative; he immediately outlined the disadvantages and advantages of the tool. In fact, there is only one serious disadvantage: the unfortunate design of the chain tensioner. As for the advantages, there are many more. This is a reliable, economical engine, and high-quality saw headset, and high performance. By the way, the engine consumes 20% less fuel compared to competitors, the chain oil is also efficient. The bar and chain material is the same as its brand – reliable and durable. In three years of operation there were no serious failures (a couple of times I filled the engine, could not start it).
Advantages: price, economical engine, good performance, reliable automatic lubrication system, reasonable price;
Disadvantages: Unfortunate construction of the chain tensioner, requires high-quality oil and gasoline.

Evgeny Presnyakov, 25, Perm:
This is my first chainsaw, I do not have a specialist, so I listened to the consultants and bought the Daewoo DACS4516. After a year of use, I can say that I did not lose a chance. It has a very good vibration damping system, economical engine, the noise is quite bearable, even though I prefer to work with headphones. I was pleased with the extra bonuses in the kit: glasses, gloves, bags – it is clear that the manufacturer cares about its customers.
Andrew Turovsky, 47, Krasnodar:
Yuzhal chainsaw not so long ago, but the first impressions have already formed. First of all, I want to note the quality assembly and reliable engine. I have read about such engines and know that they save up to 20% of fuel. Daewoo DACS4516 model is equipped with pretty good tires – both tire and chain are of acceptable quality. But I had no luck with the tensioner – the chain gets loose every 20 minutes. Whether this is an isolated case or a design flaw – I do not know.
Advantages: The engine is economical and reliable, a good vibration damping system, has a quality saw;
