How much gear oil goes in cutter bar

simple answer : none ! use bar/chain oil in auto lube tank , some suppliers even tell you right on bottle what to set your drip rate too for your model saw , other types of oil wont have the same viscosity (or temp range) to lube your saw and it will wear out faster , allways fill to just below the top of tank (not top of fill neck) leave a little air gap this keeps it from vapor locking and stopping up auto oiler pathway

Excessive use of chain oil

Unlike most bigger gasoline powered chainsaws, the Ryobi RCS2040 electric chainsaw does not have an oil adjuster. The oil pump on it is pretty much a simple mechanism that moves the oil on a "cork screw" -it rotates when your chainsaw runs, then your oil glides out of the reservoir into the tube towards the chain oiler. Amount of oil used will depend on two factors: 1.) Type of oil used. We sell winter grade and summer grade (but we are in Southern California, this doesn't make any difference). Our customers prefer the less tackier ones because it doesn't burn their bars under heavy use and it is less strain on the unit, however this drips out fast. 2.) Integrity of your oil line system, and the size of your reservoir (on your model, it IS small). Our rule of thumb here is that if it drips bar & chain oil, it's working. Well, that is unless it's leaking someplace else other than the bar oiler. Check the oil tube - it should be on the bottom of your chainsaw right on the same side as the oil tank.

Generally, speaking for both mid-sized electric and gas powered saws - 45 minutes of worth of cutting should have your bar and oil tank depleted already. Our contractor customers even have it opened way up.

I have a UT10947D Homelite chainsaw that uses excessive bar oil. When I use it oil slings everywhere and drips steadily out the clutch cover. I tried clearing the lines and checked for cracked or loose...

check that you are using chain bar oil and not engine oil as that is the main reason for excessive oil usage
make sure that there is the small restriction at the exit point
if that is missing , then that will be your problem

My 450 Husky has a leak from the oil tank at the bottom of the saw. Is there an oil plug at the bottom of the tank that come loose or unscrewed??????

if same as mine there is a screw under side to stop oil flow altogether for storage or to slow down if excessive flow but remember to open if using so the chain doesn`t burn out to soon

Puddle of oil in case when not in use. If using it then shut off and sit it down leaves puddle of oil where it was sitting.

There will always be an amount of oil on the bottom of the saw, the oiling system is a constant loss system ie onto the chain and away, there are many places for the oil spray to sit in covers, which when sat will drip out, they rely on saw dust to dry the oil up, however if there is not a great deal of saw dust about the oil will not get dryed up and will drip under the saw.Unless the oil leak is excessive i would leave well alone.

(This may be a duplicate- not sure if my first attempt was submitted). Chain oil delivery failure. No oil comes onto chain when engine running or onto ground if chain & guide removed. Can see...

This is very strange if the saw is new, it cant be dirt in the tank or filter, i think it is more likly a kinked oil hose in the oil tank, i dont mean to be sarcastic but you have put the chain oil in the oil tank? is this a Husqvarna machine? if so let me know the model, so as i can be a little more helpfull.

Good Morning : I have a Husqvarna 142 e chain saw about 2 years old and I have an excessive amount of bar oil dripping out . Is there some kind of flow adjustment for this problem ? Thanks , Mark :

First, deactivate the chain brake, back-off the chain adjuster, then remove the bar and chain. Run the engine at speed for a moment or two--the oil should ooze out of the engine side port. If the oil quantity seems about right, then clean the drive end of the bar oil-passages including the two small passages that go out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the chain groove and check the sprocket on the far end (if equipped). Reassemble the bar and chain, then start and run the engine at speed for several moments with the bar tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Check the owner's manual for location of any oil-volume adjustment if needed.

The oil is leaking from the bottom or where the bar & chain is. I'm not sure which one it is. It is a Craftsman 14 inch chain saw.

Remove the bar and chain, then remove the excess oil and debris. Start the engine and look for oil oozing out of a port near where the bar fits to the case. Any spills while filling the oil tank will allow oil to drip from the case. If the oil comes out properly, clean the drive end of the bar, especially the two small passages from the larger holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the chain groove all the way around and inspect the tip sprocket condition. Reassemble the bar and chain, then run the engine for short time with the tip near cardboard to see if it will throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Chain keeps losening up

Is the chain being properly oiled as it runs? Check by running the tip of the bar at speed near a piece of cardboard for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. If nothing, remove the bar and chain, start the engine and observe the oil port in the side of the engine case. At speed, it should ooze out oil. If so, clean the bar drive-end holes that feed oil to the chain. Pay particular attention to the two small holes that run from the large holes out to the chain groove. If nothing comes out of the engine port, then an inspection of the pump, lines, and tank filter are in order. Make sure the chain is properly sharpened as a dull chain makes a lot of heat which allows the chain to stretch. You should not have to apply high force to the saw to get it to cut. Set chain tension so that the chain does not droop from the bar bottom, but turns easily by hand. Hope this helps!
