Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin
I seem to be going through an excessive amount of bar oil. Is this just because temps have warmed up? Am switching to the summer oil. Also 1 of the 2 chains it came with is now ratched 2nd chain is not far behind. The bar itself is looking worn. Was thinking of going with a 20" or 22" to replace any thoughts on that?
If you are using winter grade bar oil, then when the temps warm up, you are going to go through a lot more bar oil, because the winter grade is much more loose compared to the summer oil. I would not be to worried about using too much oil, because it just means that it is working and lubricating the saw well. About switching to a larger bar, I would not recommend going to a larger bar than what came with the saw, Unless the manufacture states what size bars can be used for the saw. Going to a 20" or 22" bar could bog down the machine, making cuts slower and not as clean, since the increased length of the bar would be too much for the motor to handle. with the larger bar the chain would be larger as well. So the power needed to move that chain has to be increased as well. So unless the manual says something like, "available bars lengths are..." Then I would just stick with the bar size it came with.
