How often should I lubricate my chainsaw?
Fill your oil reservoir each time you fill your chainsaw’s gas tank. Make sure that your saw chain, guide bar, and sprocket are always receiving oil from the saw during operation.
What type of lubrication should I use on my saw?
Keep your saw's chain-oiling system filled with clean bar and chain oil. Our bar and chain oil is specifically compounded to provide extra high tackiness and prevent "throw off" even under adverse weather conditions.
Can I put used oil or motor oil on my chainsaw chain?
As a rule of thumb, you should never put used oil or old motor oil in your saw or on your chain. Used motor oil contains metal shavings that reduce the life of your bar and chain. Additionally, lubricating your bar and chain with used motor oil will void your warranty.
How to Lubricate your Saw Chain
