Oils & Lubricants

STIHL chainsaws are made to deliver the kind of performance that professionals need. STIHL bar and chain oil is made specifically for your STIHL chainsaw, keeping it protected and running smooth like the well-oiled machine it is.

Without the proper lubricant, the average amount of use that a guide bar, saw chain and sprocket should be able to provide would certainly be shortened.

STIHL lubricants have been formulated to allow STIHL products to break in without any special procedures, such as running a rich oil mixture or operating at specific RPM for a certain amount of time.

    Top Notch Bar Oil
    For the little extra price you pay up front over the bargain oils its worth it. Nice cling on the chain. Doesn't build up in a gooey mess all over the saw. Never have smelled a hot bar or chain when cutting.

    According to the pros, this is the best
    I was at the pro chainsaw place and got to talking about bar oil. He said that Stihl is changing bar oil types. The winter blend is still in the blue bottle. But now there are two summer grades. The lower priced bottle now contains a cheaper “woodcutter” lube which the chainsaw guy says is inferior to anything else on the market. He said that it is worse than the independent oil, which is only slightly inferior to Stihl. I do volunteer cutting for the County and would rather buy the better Stihl ... read more bar oil than accept free gallons of the Woodcutter bar oil. In the wintertime I transition to the winter grade of Stihl that is in the blue bottle.

    Excellent Product...you get what you pay for...
    Sure. There are less expensive products out there. But the reason we all bought Stihl equipment is because it's simply the best! Right? So, uhhhh...why would anybody want to cheap things out with cheaper lubricants? I just don't get this! I've put a lot of bar & chain oil thru my saws over the years, never a problem. My chains don't get all stretchy, don't require a heck of a lot of adjustment. This is good stuff. Don't save a couple of bucks by using something designed for an inferior piece ... read more of equipment! Just sayin'!

    Only Bar Oil I Use
    I have been using this bar oil in all my saws. I do not see any premature wear on my bar or chain.

    Awesome "cling-ability"
    This bar oil is a cut above the rest. Works well in all temperatures. Does a great job in hardwoods where other oils fall short.

    Another winner!
    I own all Stihl yard tools. I love each and every one, but I,m also glad to save money when I can. I own 2 saws and I now use Woodcutters oil in both. It works great and I appreciate the savings.

    Excellent product for the serious user.
    I started using HP ULTRA STIHL Engine oil when gasoline started adding Ethanol. Since I switched to Premium Gasoline and HP ULTRA, I have had 90-95% less starting problems and overall maintenance to my STIHL chainsaws. It may cost a little more, BUT what you save in repair costs far outweigh the price. HP ULTRA is all I ever use in my STIHL equipment. GREAT product!

    Only Choice To Use In Your Stihl
    This is the only oil I will run in my Stihl's. I run 91 octane non oxyeginated gas with this oil. I have never had any engine proplem. I get quick starts. The gas keeps longer also.

    amazing response and cleanest burning oil you can buy
    I was talked into this mix when i purchased my MS311 chainsaw and was a little hesitant at first to even use the product but man was i fooled. Not only did it smell and look better it performed like no mix even had a chance against its clean burning powerhouse of a burn. Im an avid and well experinced landscaper. I use all types of two stroke tools hedge trimmers weedeaters chainsaws blowers concrete cutters. Using this mix has improved all my tools starting fuel consumption throttle response ... read more and over all power. Ill never use another mix again

    This product does what it is supposed to do.
    This is the first gas can I have ever used that is truly a no spill can. I have three of these and they work. You can tilt the can so the spout is vertical and it will not spill. Open it up and it flows freely. Release it and the flow immediately stops. Great product. Well worth the extra cost for these cans.

    Best gas can for smaller equipment
    Have used one of these for 2-3 years and I love it. Been using it for my chains saws, string trimmer, and pole saw and not over filled once, this is the only no spill type of container I've used and liked. A must have for anyone who has to refuel a lot.

    A pleasure to use no hassles!
    In the heat of summer the sides of this gas can do not suck into itself like shrink rap. Very thick material. Very easy to pour and no leaks. The best nozzle I have ever used. I love that I can see through to the level of gas. I never thought I would give a review on a gas can. but I just love it!

    Safer to use.
    BioPlus is a better smelling oil. Kind of smells like french fries when you really put 'er to work!

    Consistent Viscosity and Environmentally Friendly
    I appreciate this Bar Oil and know that I'm not getting misted with petroleum products every time I use my saw and that my saw dust can break down into mulch with no poison on my plants! I can see that old saw dust is breaking down into rich soil over time and this bar oil does not inhibit the biological process at all. Compared to other bar oils BioPlus lubricates better, stays consistent in it's viscosity through every temperature I've worked in and has very little smell. It's truly a winner ... read more of a product! I have used it for years and will continue to buy it. I do not worry about my land and the plants on it when I spread sawdust around. I know nature will take care of it. As far as My Own biology is concerned, if I avoid poisons today, it prevents health problems tomorrow. I'm willing to keep taking this step towards healthier chainsawing.

    Good product, but pricey
    I like this oil for it's health and environmental benefits. It also has very good cold flow characteristics. The regular oil flows very slowly and is hard to poor in winter conditions. This oil flows well and is easy to pour. I haven't seen any difference in wear on bar or chains through 2 gallons of use.

    Great Mixing Oil
    I have been using this oil in my Stihl products since 1999. I have two chainsaws, two weedeaters, and a blower. Everything starts after sitting for a while. I don't use the saws but once or twice a year and don't drain the fuel and never have any issues. The first saw purchased in 99 still has never even had a carb rebuild. Keep in mind this oil has a fuel stabilizer in it when comparing prices.

    Makes Easy-Starting Fuel Mixture
    Been using this in a 40-year old Homelite chain saw. It's conventional oil, so it gets a little smoky, but I'm sticking with it. Big Bertha generally burps on the 4th or 5th pull even after it has been sitting for a loooooong time.

    Excellent conventional oil.
    I have run many a gallon of fuel with this oil. It has great lubricity. It is very clean running if the equipment is adjusted properly. And when mixed with 89 octane non ethanol gas it has a excellent storage life. Equipment has been very dependable while using Sthil HP. And the price is very reasonable, when compared to other big name brands. And this product is readly avabile in most areas. I can even purchase it at a local General Store near my home.
