SAFETY PRECAUTIONS  
Tool operators and maintenance personnel must always comply with the safety  
precautions given in this manual and on the stickers and tags attached to the tool  
and hose.  
These safety precautions are given for your safety. Review them carefully before  
operating the tool and before performing general maintenance or repairs.  
Supervising personnel should develop additional precautions relating to the specific  
work area and local safety regulations. If so, place the added precautions in the  
space provided on page 5.  
The DS06 Diamond Chain Saw will provide safe and dependable service if operated  
in accordance with the instructions given in this manual. Read and understand this  
manual and any stickers and tags attached to the tool and hoses before operation.  
Failure to do so could result in personal injury or equipment damage.  
• Establish a training program for all operators to ensure safe operation.  
• The operator must be familiar with all prohibited work areas such as excessive slopes and dangerous terrain condi-  
tions.  
• Do not operate the chain saw unless thoroughly trained or under the supervision of an instructor.  
• Always wear safety equipment such as goggles, ear, head protection, leg protection, gloves, snug fitting clothing and  
safety shoes at all times when operating the chain saw.  
• Do not overreach. Maintain proper footing and balnace at all times.  
• Do not inspect or clean the chain saw while the hydraulic power source is connected. Accidental engagement of the  
chain saw can cause serious injury.  
• Always connect hoses to the chain saw hose couplers before engergizing the hydraulic power source. Make sure all  
hose connections are tight.  
• Do not operate the chain saw at fluid temperatures above 140°F/60°C. Operation at higher temperatures can cause  
higher than normal temperatures at the chain saw which can result in operator discomfort.  
• Do not rely exclusively upon the safety devices built into the chain saw. As a chain saw user, several steps must be  
taken to keep your cutting jobs free from accident or injury:  
1. With a basic understanding of kickbacks, you can reduce or eliminate the element of surprise. Sudden surprise  
contributes to accidents.  
2. Keep a good firm grip on the chain saw with both hands, the right hand on the rear handle and the left hand on  
the front handle when operating the chain saw. Use a firm grip with thumbs and fingers encircling the chain saw  
handles. A firm grip helps reduce kickbacks and maintains control of the chain saw. Do not let go.  
3. Make sure the area in which you are cutting is free of obstructions.  
4. Cut at rated operating speeds (gpm).  
5. Do not overreach or cut above shoulder height.  
6. Only use replacement bars and chains specified by Stanley or the equivalent.  
• Make sure the chain guard is in place before operating the chain saw.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS  
• Remove or control the water slurry to prevent yourself or others from slipping while cutting.  
• Provide adequate ventilation in closed areas when operating a gas or diesel hydraulic power source.  
• Always be well rested and mentally alert before operating the chain saw.  
• Do not allow bystanders near the chain saw when starting or cutting.  
• Do not start cutting until you have a clear work area and secure footing.  
• Keep all parts of the body away from the chain saw during operation.  
• Carry the chain saw with the tool deenergized and the bar and chain to the rear of your body.  
• Do not operate a chain saw that is damaged, improperly adjusted, or not completely and securely assembled. Make  
sure the chain stops moving when the control trigger is released.  
• Keep the handle dry, clean and free of hydraulic fluid.  
• Do not use the chain saw near energized transmission lines.  
• Turn off the power source or move the hydraulic control valve to neutral before setting the chain saw down.  
• Use a guide bar scabbard when transporting the chain saw.  
• Know the location of buried or covered electrical services before starting work.  
To avoid personal injury or equipment damage, all chain saw repair, maintenance and service must only be performed  
by authorized and properly trained personnel.  
• Make sure the chain breaker and rivet spinner are securely mounted on flat, clean work surfaces. Check the mounting  
screws/bolts often.  
• Check all chain breaker and rivet spinner components regularly for wear and general condition.

OPERATION  
CONNECT HYDRAULIC HOSES  
PREOPERTION PROCEDURES  
1. Wipe all hose couplers with a clean lint-free cloth before  
making connections. If necessary, use a light-weight pen-  
etrating oil in a spray can to clean the hose couplers before  
each connection.  
CHECK THE POWER SOURCE  
1. Using a calibrated flow meter and pressure gauge, make  
sure the hydraulic power source develops a flow of 7-9  
gpm/26-34 lpm for the 8 gpm model and 4-6 gpm/15-23  
lpm for the 5 gpm model at 2000 psi/140 bar.  
2. Connect the hoses from the hydraulic power source to  
the chain saw fittings or quick disconnects. It is a good  
practice to connect return hose first and disconnect them  
last to minimize or avoid trapped pressure within the chain  
saw.  
2. Make certain that the power source is equipped with a  
relief valve set to open at 2100-2250 psi/145-155 bar.  
3. Check that the hydraulic circuit matches the tool for  
open-center (OC) or closed-center (CC) operation. The  
DS06 is designed for open-center operation only.  
3. Observe the arrow on the couplers to ensure that the  
flow is in the proper direction. The female coupler on the  
chain saw is the inlet (pressure) coupler.  
NOTE:  
CHECK TOOL  
If uncoupled hoses are left in the sun, pressure in-  
crease inside the hoses might make them difficult to  
connect. Whenever possible, connect the free ends of  
the hoses together.  
1. Make sure all tool accessories are correctly installed.  
Failure to install tool accessories properly can result in  
damage to the tool or personal injury.  
2. There should be no signs of leaks.  
CONNECTING TO A WATER SUPPLY  
3. The tool should be clean, with all fittings and fasteners  
tight.  
1. Using a standard garden hose, connect the DS06 to a  
city or auxiliary water supply. Make sure the flow is at least  
4 gpm/15 lpm at 50 psi/3.5 bar.  
4. Observe the arrow on the couplers to ensure that the  
hydraulic oil flow is in the proper direction. The female cou-  
pler is the inlet (pressure) coupler.  
IMPORTANT  
5. Check that the trigger operates smoothly and is free to  
travel between the "ON" and "OFF" positions.  
Chain and bar damage will occur if the tool operates  
without the proper water supply and water pressure.  
6. Check that the chain is properly installed. The chain is  
designed to only operate in one direction. Make sure the  
chain is installed so the bumper guard precedes each dia-  
mond segment. See figure 1.
