Yes, electric chainsaws require oil to lubricate the chain
Although the motor does not require gas or any fuel additive, the chain will require `bar and chain` oil.
Typically a chainsaw with a shorter bar around 14” and smaller is enough for property maintenance, trimming, pruning, and cutting down broken tree limbs. On the other hand, cutting down small trees, thick branches, and cleaning up storm damage will need a longer bar around 16”-20” to make the job easier and safer.
If you run a chainsaw without bar oil, it`s likely that the chain will heat up and eventually break. This can cause extensive damage to the chainsaw and may even require a new chain and bar. It`s imperative that you use the correct amount of bar oil.
Unlike the chains on gas chainsaws, which will rotate even when the saw`s engine is idling, the chains on electric saws won`t spin unless you press the trigger. That means that you need to disengage the chain brake on an electric saw in order for it to start and spin.
