Partner P820T Electric Saw Instruction Manual
Using the example of the Partner P820T chainsaw, one of the top household models, let’s look at the features of operation, maintenance and safety of the tool. The manufacturer strongly recommends strict adherence to the rules of operation when working with the chainsaw:
- No unauthorized persons should be in the working area. It is necessary to properly prepare the workplace to calculate the place of the possible fall of trees and branches.
- It is necessary to follow the recommendations regarding the clothing of the worker: tight overalls, gloves, goggles, headphones.
- Do not use the various attachments on your Partner chain saw unless specifically instructed to do so. Do not use the tool for purposes other than those described in the instruction manual.
- Always have the chain serviced: an unlubricated, loosely tensioned or not properly sharpened chain can cause accidents.
- The handles of the chainsaw must not be oily, otherwise loss of control of the device cannot be ruled out.
- It should be noted that the tool generates an electromagnetic field that can affect the functioning of medical implants to some degree.
- When working with an extension cord, it is important to consider its length and cross-sectional area.
Main malfunctions of the electric saw “Partner”:
- If the saw does not start, you need to check the mains voltage, check the mains cable and input/output sections.
- The engine overheats – possibly from contamination with wood debris, the gearbox is jammed.
- Partner electric saw stops while operating – main reason is worn brushes or faulty gearbox.
- Brushes and the collector are worn and burned out – it is manifested by sparks, deterioration of the interaction of electrodes with the armature. It is necessary to replace the brushes with new ones, carefully clean the gap between the slats in the armature.

Partner 351xt Chromium
The chrome series of chainsaws extends the life of the gas engines by coating the inner diameter of the cylinder with a durable chrome layer. The performance of the 351xt chrome model tool corresponds to the semi-professional level.
The full ride of a professional headset with a length of 400 mm, which is realized due to the traction properties of the carburetor engine with two carburetors with a passive current up to 1.9 hp. The operating time in autonomous mode is increased by increasing the volume of the fuel tank to 380 ml.

The fuel system is factory-set to standard air temperature and atmospheric pressure settings. Additional adjustment of the carburetor is required if after warming up the engine does not start or does not develop revolutions. In another variant – it stops when pressing the gas or does not work at idle speed.
The most probable cause of this malfunction is too rich or bad fuel mixture entering the engine. The recommended sequence for adjusting the fuel system is given in the service and company manual.
Turning the gasoline emulsion quantity and quality adjusting screws brings the oil to the standard 1:16 content.
The key to successful operation is:
- High quality gasoline and a properly prepared fuel mixture;
- Pre-cleaning of the air filter;
- Warming the engine up to working temperature.
If there is an engine in the design, it is necessary to make sure that it is repairable. Constant ignition clearance adjustment is not required. Adjusting the spark plug gap is sufficient for proper ignition adjustment.
All models of the brand range run on a fuel mixture of gasoline and engine oil for two-stroke gas-distributing engines. The proportion of oil is the standard 40: 1, for individual models. At altitude, the figure is 50: 1.
Depending on the air temperature, consumables are selected from a list of brands recommended in the manual. It is possible to use an identical counterpart of appropriate quality. Engine oils and their chain counterparts are not interchangeable.
Failures and troubleshooting
A significant portion of malfunctions are the result of lack of skilled maintenance, illiterate and improper use of the tool.
If the saw does not start in another version, it starts and fails and can be the cause of failure:
- Water trapped in the carburetor;
- Expired fuel mixture timing;
- A receiver filter clogged with sawdust.
If the engine does not run steadily at the speed of the selected operating mode, you should check the quality of the gasoline itself, the cleanliness of the fuel filter and carburetor jets.
In difficult conditions the injectors work. In a situation where the chain is not lubricated in working mode, its life is reduced by several times. If there is no oil supply to the headset with a cistern, operation should be stopped until the fault is corrected.
advantages and disadvantages
The technical and performance parameters are identical in various countries. With timely and complete maintenance, all models produce the allocated resources with a significant reserve.
- A sufficient range of spare parts, oils, spark plugs and other consumables ensure that owners can do their own maintenance and up-to-date repairs. The domestic part of the repair stock is replenished by China, but the quality level of cheaper parts and assemblies is much lower.
- The list of advantages is good for its category, interchangeability of unified parts.
- Users positively noted the absence of problems with engine starting. Despite the lack of additional equipment, starting the chainsaw, which is moderately adapted to the cold climate, is without problems
There are practically no serious design flaws. There are separate complaints about the quality of plastic, the budgetary life of the saw sets, increased consumption of chain lubrication.
Partner P842 Partner P842 series according to the main parameters is one of the most successful models. The budget cost of the tool affects everything, including the quality of materials and durability of components. But for home use the option is the most optimal. For a new tool, a temporary setup is required. Only in this case, its functionality can be used at 100%. Leva
The work of the new chainsaw Partner did not get along from the first day. The engine started badly, unstably worked at idle when giving the load. After two failed adjustments, the carburetor was replaced under warranty. Since then, my problems are over, the saw was back to normal operating level. The engine is great, the chain after a few cubes of sawed firewood had to be replaced early, the tire is still holding up. And another thing, in the cold the oil pump almost does not work, I have to dilute the oil with gasoline. Peter Alexandrovich
