YOUR MAX-FLOW FILTER
The ideal filter has high airflow
(cubic feet per minute, CFM) and high efficiency (particle removal), giving high
effectiveness over a long period of time. Max-Flow chainsaw filters allow the
longest period of effective filtering at high performance levels. Max-Flow
oiled foam filters are washable and re-usable and are easy to service with the
at suggested intervals. Max-Flow foam filters outperform any other filter
CLEANING YOUR MAX-FLOW
When you remove the filter from the saw and see any dirt in the
throat of the carburetor, or inside the cage, it is time to clean and re-oil the
filter element. Ideally the filter should be cleaned BEFORE the oil has
been used up and the particles are passing through the foam. Your
attention to this and practice will determine the cleaning interval for your
OILING YOUR MAX-FLOW
Whether you have many spare elements or field clean your filter
element whenever it gets dirty, it is important to thoroughly clean the the
trapped dirt particles from the foam. This is an easy job, and with care it
doesn't even need to be messy. Suggested oils are
No-Toil. DO NOT use bar lube, it is not designed to be burned in an
engine and will cause your rings to stick! We do not advise, motor oil,
vegetable oil or gauze filter oil. None of them will efficiently trap the
smaller dirt particles. Remember the quality of oil determines the
effectiveness of the air filter.

RESETTING THE AIR FUEL
After replacing the factory HD or HD2 air filter, most Stihl
chainsaws (other than the MS661which has an auto-tune function) will require a slight air/fuel mixture
adjustment. Here is how to accomplish this.
Should you keep your existing chainsaw filter or upgrade to
the Max-Flow Filter System? Compare the cost of keeping your present HD2 to the
cost of our filter system. One Stihl® filter element costs $48.95. With a Stihl®
recommended replacement of one filter a month, a year's cutting will cost
$599.00. Using the same replacement interval, a Max-Flow Filter System with 10
extra filter elements is only $189.95, saving you over $400.00 each year. Spend less and
get longer filter maintenance intervals too!
