Basic equipment

Huter is a German brand whose first products appeared on the garden and farm machinery market in 1979. At that time, the company focused on the production of mini-power plants and power generators. Soon, the range of products was significantly expanded, including through chain chainsaws.

Today, the main production facilities of the concern are located in China, which did not affect the quality of tools at all. All Huter equipment is produced under the supervision of German engineers and designers in strict accordance with internal quality standards.

Huter chainsaws are of high quality at very reasonable prices. Today, the BS 40 model is sold for 5 560 rubles, in Ukraine such an instrument will cost about 2,500. 2,600 hryvnias.

Fuel and lubricants for the bs-40 Huter chainsaw

To extend the longevity of your chainsaw, we recommend that you use only high-quality fuels and lubricants.

The fuel mixture should consist of high-octane gasoline AI-92, AI-95 and high-quality oil for two-stroke gasoline engines with air cooling (the manufacturer recommends Huter 2T). To break in the saw, it is necessary to prepare fuel, based on a ratio of 1/25. In the operating mode, the proportions change by 1/40, unless otherwise indicated on the oil package.

For filling the automatic lubrication system, it is best to use Huter 80W90 or other high-quality oils.

Carb adjustment

Quite often, under intense loads or when using low-quality fuel mixture, carburetor settings come true. You can fix this malfunction in a specialized workshop or make repairs at home. How to adjust the chainsaw carburetor at home, see here:

Dudenin Victor, 33 years old, Novgorod:

Grishin Dmitry, 37 years old, Altai Territory:

I bought a Huter in the village. For the past year and a half, she practically has not rested with me: I cook and saw firewood, built a bathhouse, there is work on the site. Economical, in terms of fuel consumption, reliable engine, starts well in any weather. It did not require any repairs. A couple of times it regulated the carburetor. I am satisfied.
