The Right Amount of Chainsaw Oil

Q: How do I know if my chainsaw bar and chain are getting enough oil?

A: One way to test if your chain oiler is working correctly is to lay a piece of cardboard on a stump or the ground. Start the unit and place the top of the bar approximately one food above the paper. As you apply full throttle, a thin line of oil should appear on the paper. Once you see this thin line of oil, you know your bar and chain assembly is getting the proper amount of oil. If your chainsaw is not operating properly, stop by our service department and we can further troubleshoot.
