Hi Dylan
Oddly, only the transmission oil volume is mentioned in the owners manual, and it appears that the engine and the transmission share the same oil, and require the same 10-60w oil, so I am assuming that is the as listed in the manual  holds 1.41litres (1.48 USquarts or 48 ounces),  You can download the manual by right clicking on   on this  here. and "save file as"   When yo changing the oil, don't forget to clean the filters when changing the oil. Page 100 has details in the manual. Details on the fill level are also in the manual. Hope this has helped. A FixYa rating  is a great reward for looking into this for you. Cheers!
regards robotek

Hi dear expert I have a Husqvarna SM 125 '07 (zCGH200AB7V011268) I have such a problem: blinking light oil (3 long 3 short) oil in the tank is full, look forward to your reply, Regards Nazar...

That warning is for the oil pressure- it's missing. Check the pipe connecting the tank to the oil pump and the cartridge filter. If they are free then the pump and the engine will have to be dismantled to identify what went wrong.

Hi; te450, when engine gets hot the clutch stops working,i replaced fluid with fork oil like dealer said, no change?thanks.

There may have been some confusion with the dealers advice.
Brake fluid is used in the hydraulic clutch master , its called fluid cause its not a oil , and has a high boiling point
Fork oil is for is a hydraulic oil, but an oil.
Engine oil is for engines that the clutch also runs in.

I have a 450, and I would like to increase my bar oil output. Where is the adjustment screw? Please!

There is no adjuster for the Husqvarna 450. Husqvarna recommend that if there's not enough oil reaching the bar that you slow down the engine by adjusting the carburettor screw. I have the same saw and also wanted to adjust the oil flow. I didn't change the carburettor and it's still cutting away without doing any damage. It's meant to use less than a tank full of oil to the tank full of fuel when you're cutting near constantly. With stops in between it will use more fuel and less oil.

Howdy, Mine is an 05 and it holds 1.4 qts. There is an overflow bolt on the same side as the filler plug. Down and to your right. Open it and fill until oil comes out. :)
