Yes-The Lo is for low idel.Adjust down until the chain stops.And adjust the Hi till it sounds like its going to fly then back the screw off 3/4 to 1 full turn the other way.

** Important ** unless it's a husquavna,then that will burn up the cylender in nothing flatt.

If the saw is a Husqunva post the model # and someone can help you on the correct running speeds.

No longer is a Husqvarna a Husqvarna. Some Husqvarna chainsaws today are actually a Poulan with a Husqvarna name. Some Husqvarna riding mowers are actually what most know as AYP.

Here is a history of the buyouts and merging:
Lawn & Garden Tractors by Husqvarna (Electrolux/Frigidaire)

The names may change but they are all the same.
Poulan/Weed Eater, American Yard Products, Roper, Frigidaire, Electrolux and
Husqvarna

Post the brand, model number, etc. of your chainsaw and the carburetor and you can get specific advise.

Chainsaw and carburetor manufacturers have websites that usually offer free downloads of manuals.
