Use actual bar oil sold for that purpose. It's thicker and won't run out like water. Synthetic oil is very thin does not have the proper density.

What type of oil is used for my 2055 2.O CI woodsman chain saw?


This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline.Before operation,gasoline must be mixed with a good quality synthetic
2-cycle air-cooled engine oil designed to be mixed at a ratio of 40:1.Poulan/Weed Eater brand synthetic oil is recommended.Mix
gasoline and oil at a ratio of40:1.A 40:1ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 ounces of oil with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline.

As far as bar and chain oil:
Genuine Poulan R bar and chain oil is recommended to protect your unit against excessive wear from heat and friction.Poulan R oil resists high temperature thinning.If Poulan R is not available,use a
good grade SAE30 oil. Never use waste oil for bar and chain lubrication.

Same as above comment. Oil all over the place, 14" electric


The oil rate is not adjustable, make sure you are using a good quality bar and chain oil that is not too thin.

I need a manual for a new Poulan 3.5 electric chainsaw, or, failing that, I need instructions on what kind of oil to use on it, and whether I need separate oil for the chain.


You shouldn't need any other oil than the oil to keep the chain and bar guide oiled (pressing down on the button adds more oil to the chain/bar). You can use standard Bar and Chain Oil, or probably pay a little more and use the Poulan brand oil, but in my experience, any bar oil for chainsaws will work, and the larger the container you buy, the less per ounce you will pay. Remember this is NOT an automatic oiling system, so it will be cheaper in the long run to remember to press that button than to replace the chain/saw if it overheats.

Poulan 14'' electric chainsaw model 1420 leaking oil to the point where every 20 minutes I'm adding oil. Any suggestions??


Go up in viscosity. You can mix a heavier oil into what you have and still have enough oil on the bar and chain.Add a little of the heavier oil at time and feel for heat changes on the blade.

What is the mix for my Homelite 16" 33cc chainsaw?


50:1 is the fuel to oil ratio. Never use petroleum oil (engine or boat motor oil). Always use a synthetic saw oil available from home centers, hardware stores and saw dealers. The bottles are usually graduated to various ratios for a gallon of fresh gas. Always premix in it's own container and shake the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Be sure to use bar/chain oil for the chain as well, and keep the chain sharp and well adjusted. Hope this helps!

Brand new poulan pro 4620avx--bar oil is coming out of oiler but not getting onto chain


Hello. Thin your bar oil just a wee bit with some kerosene. If you have a gallon of bar oil add 1/4 cup of kerosene, stir it up and you will be fine. For starters also, directly apply some bar oil to the chain so that you are always using a well lubed chain. Joe

Bar oil leaking after use


Release the chain brake, back off the chain adjustment screw several turns, then remove the side cover and the bar/chain. Clean the engine side case where the bar fits to and run the engine for a few moments--oil should ooze out of the side port in the engine. If ok, then clean the removed parts including the two small channels in the drive end of the bar that convey oil out to the chain groove on each side. Reassemble everything and then run the tip of the bar near some cardboard for several moments at speed--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the board. Unless you have a leaking oil line or the tank is split, you should have minimal leaking problems. Hope this helps!
