What kind of oil do I use on the chain saw? How much oil will the chain saw need? The Worx 14” Electric Chainsaw can take any kind of bar and chain oil, which is available in most hardware stores or stores that sell chainsaws. The oil tank capacity will hold 4.06 ounces.
Electric chainsaws need oil for lubrication and protection of the chain and guide bar. The oil dripped on the guide bar is protecting it from damage and overheating. Unlike gas-powered chainsaws that need fuel mixed with oil, electric chainsaws do not need oil as a fuel component.
Why use oil? You want lubrication of the actual chain against the bar. You don`t want to chain to burn – which is what might happen if there`s too much friction. Without oil, it causes frictional force on the motor in the chainsaw as well.
Does the pole saw use oil? Yes, bar and chain oil is required to properly lubricate the cutting system.
Absolutely. 10w40 is thick enough to mostly stay on the chain. Regular bar and chain oil have additives that keep the oil from slinging off the chain. This is why it is always recommended to use regular chain oil.
This means that the viscosity of this oil ranges (5w30) from 5 when it`s cold to 30 when it is hot. This oil is good lubricating for light-duty diesel and petrol engines. So, you can use it as a Chainsaw Bar Oil.
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.
NO, outboard two stroke motor oil designed for water cooled engines does not provide the needed protection or lubrication for two stroke air cooled engines.
Use for lubricating moving parts, pivot points and bearings. Lubricate small to larger motors found in sewing machines, fans, lawnmowers and trimmers, drills, chainsaws, and other tools.
NO, outboard two stroke motor oil designed for water cooled engines does not provide the needed protection or lubrication for two stroke air cooled engines.
Most modern chainsaws, string trimmers, leaf blowers and other small-engine two-stroke equipment recommend a 50:1 oil mix ratio, but some recommend 40:1 and older two-stroke equipment might even call for 32:1.

16″ Electric Chain Saw: what kind of oil is used for electric chain saw…
ANSWER : I assume you are asking about the oil for the chain. Any good quality “Bar and Chain Oil” will do fine. Do not use motor oil you use in your car engine as it will not properly lube the chain and will result in quicker dulling and early demise of the chain.

You can get the “Bar and Chain Oil” at most hardware stores or Farm Supply stores.

ANSWER : Any chain saw oil from your stockist…saw oil is saw oil.remington made many saws.

Oil leaks out of the remington electric pole saw. The saw is stored/seated upright and I can’t see the problem
ANSWER : Remove the bar and chain, then clean the entire area. Look for leakage at either the small port where the bar fits, or from the motor case itself. Make sure the oil tank vent is open so that pressure doesn’t build up from heat. If the leakage is from the case, then look for a crack in the oil tank, or a defective oil line from the tank to the oil pump. Clean the drive end of the bar oil-channels that go out from the large holes to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove. It also may be easier to just dump the oil out of the tank after each use if the chain seems to oiling properly. Hope this helps!
