There is usually a fuel/oil ratio (i think yours is 50:1) you must buy the 2 cycle oil and mix it with gas at the ratio reccommended by the manufacture. the bottle may say 6 oz per 1 gallon = 50:1 So 1 bottle of 2 cycle oil for every gallon of gas. mix them in a proper fuel can. then let the cutting begin.

Chain saw motor is smoking

Hi Mark:
I'll go over the basics so please ignore what you already know.
Chain saws are 2 cycle which means the gas must have oil added. The ratio is 50:1 typically.
Chain saws are air cooled so they get HOT. They like to be kept clean, and a build up of oily sawdust is an invitation to an unwanted fire.
The chain is lubricated by a thick oil that gets put in a different tank. If you run out of chain oil, the chain will get really hot and you can actually ruin the bar by overheating it. A good rule is to always fill the chain oil tank (with chain oil) at the same time that you fill the fuel tank (with gas/oil mix)
Make sure the chain is kept SHARP. A blunt chain makes the saw work harder and causes friction which generates heat.
On a regular basis, take the bar off and clean the brake assembly and all the bits and crannies. Compressed air and solvent will make the job easy.
Chain tension should be kept snug but not too tight. I like to be able to lift the chain at the centre of the bar and have the underside just barely clear the groove in the bar.
Lots of bars have a roller at the tip and there is a fitting to inject grease. It's a good idea to use it regularly.
I think that about covers it. If you have any specific questions, send 'em on.

Do you have to mix oil?

Hi sullivan6451....
You do not mix oil and gas on an electric chain saw...
The only oil you will use on the chain saw it "Bar and Chain" oil...specially formulated for the use on the chain and bar on your electric chainsaw...
You can purchase the oil at any Lowes,HomeDepot,Ace Hardware...etc..

What is the fuel mix ratio for a husqvarna 55 rancher chain saw ?

33:1.............always mix it on the heavy side and you will never burn your saw up.........go to walfart and get a bottle of "gumout" octane booster and stick it in the gas and it will run better than ever.......

Do you run straight gas through it

No, gas chain saws use a 2 cycle oil gas mix, it should say on the chain saw fill or on a bottle of 2 cycle oil the mix or ratio of oil to gas mix.

What solution do you put in the gas of a chain saw

The oil they gave you was to mix with the gas. The chainsaw has a 2 cycle motor that requires two cycle oil to be mixed with the gas.

Chain saw emitted sparks and now does not start.

Hi

When the engine get warm and die(I suppose)check the spark at the sparkplug.You can let the saw run until it ran out of gas and you will not distroy the engine.Change the sparkplug.
