A McCulloch chainsaw must remain sharp to do its job properly. If you allow your chainsaw to go dull, it could cause the saw to kickback and hurt you while you are using it. Regardless if you need to remove the chain from your McCulloch chainsaw to sharpen it or to replace it, the straightforward, tool-free process is the same.

Turn off the chainsaw, place it on a level work surface and give it 15mminutes to cool down. If you use leather gloves you can usually complete the task right away.
Pull the large plastic chain brake backwards towards the handle to release the brake on the chain.
Lift up the adjustment knob handle located on the same side of the chainsaw that the chain bar attaches to and rotate the handle counterclockwise to the "install" position to loosen the chain bar.
Slide the chain bar backwards towards the sprocket, then pull the chain off the chain bar and sprocket.
Place the new chain onto the chain bar and the chain sprocket. Make sure the inside edge of the chain rests inside the groove of the chain bar.
Pull the chain bar away from the sprocket as far as you can move it, then rotate the adjustment knob handle into its original position.
