    Default How To Start A 011AVT Stihl Chainsaw ?

    I need your help . I picked up a 011AVT Stihl Chainsaw on e-bay and got it today, of course no manual with it. Any idea how to start it?? I see a choke, an on button and that is about it, no gas primer bulb. Any suggetions? I will look for a manual on e-bay, but until one comes along, HELP!

    Thanks

    Have you tried the usual things, check for proper fuel/oil mixture, turn switch on, flip choke full on, Squeeze trigger a couple of times, pull till it tries to start then go to half choke and pull again and be carefull

    Jim,

    Can it be that simple?? Got to get some gas for it and try it. Anyone know if it is 40 or 50 to 1 oil to be added to the gas?? I have 50 but not 40, any harm using 50 instead of 40 IF it is 40?? First Stihl gas powered chain saw I have owned, have used friends other saws, tired of asking to borrow so picked one up.

    I think its that easy and for the mixture, go to a dealer and tell him what you have and he will sell you a small container of oil that will treat one gallon of gas and make sure you use a new and clean can and label it in big letters
    CHAINSAW GAS!!
    and you should be good to go

    I think it's 50:1 but I'm in the house and the manuals are up in the shop.

    My recommendation would be sure to always use Stihl oil in your premix.

    The start procedure for my 031AV is flip electrical switch on, push in trigger lock while trigger is squeezed all the way in and then release trigger while holding the lock in, flip the choke on and pull the starter rope. On mine you generally have to reduce to half choke immediately once it starts otherwise it will die.

    I always buy the little Stihl or Husky oil bottles that are pre-measured to make 1 gallon. They're by far the easiest way to mix up 2-cycle for the amounts I usually use a year. You don't have to worry about the ratio, or having a left over partially full oil bottle that can get contaminated or in-advertantly used for motor oil.

    As far as starting:
    1. Turn choke on
    2. pull until a cough or sputter
    3. turn choke off and pull again, it will usually fire right up
    4. if you keep the choke on after the first cough or sputter, you'll most likely flood it with subsequent pulls
    I plan to screech to a sideways stop at heavens gate, jump out with a cigar in one hand, a scotch in the other, yelling "WOOHOO!! WHAT A RIDE!!!"

    Try this:
    turn switch on
    put choke on full
    lock throttle on
    pull until you you get one "pop' from trying to fire
    turn off choke
    give several more pulls & it should take right off

    if not you might change the plug & try the steps again

    I had my old Stihl sit for 3-4 years, put new gas in it & it took right off
