Overview

This one-day workshop will cover the key issues and activities associated with troubleshooting two-cycle chainsaw engine repairs.

This class is designed not for the shop mechanic but for the two-cycle chainsaw operator. However, the shop mechanic may find the class information very useful if they have not attended a trouble-shooting systems workshop before. Participants will be guided through a systematic process that looks at the important workings of the two-cycle engine. The class is instructor lead but is over 60% hands-on. Working in small groups the participants will disassemble a chain saw to discover important trouble-shooting processes. 

Who Should Attend
• Small Equipment Operators
• Shop Mechanics
• Supervisors and Foremen

Registration at 7:30 am, Class begins at 8:00 am.

ALL ATTENDEES SHOULD BRING A CHAINSAW TO CLASS
