    What is a good way to clean off the blade and wheels prior to this? I just cut a lot of pine and there is a lot of pitch on the bearings and blade. And recommendations on cleaning agents or home remedies? Thanks,

      Kerosene can be used if soap and water doesn’t work well enough.There are some commercial blade cleaners out there but I have found none work any better than kerosene. It’s highly flamable so be careful if using around a heat source. Once blades are cleaned there are several commercial sprays which help protect the blades and help keep the pitch to a minimum. Hope that helps.
