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.

    Cleans Engines
    This stuff cleans engines especially after you have broken them in with mineral oil. I really love the way this oil makes the engine performs. I was using Lucas Semi-Synthetic and switching over didn't make much of a difference but I would rather have a full synthetic rather than a semi-synthetic. My only concern is the smell that it produces when burnt. The High Performance orange bottled 2 cycle oil smells way better. After this was used up I used Royal Purple Synthetic and it smelled a little ... read more better. The engine performance was the same from switching, but it leaves residue on the exhaust port on the cylinder. Will be switching back to the HP Ultra.

    Ecxellent for RC gasoline engines. Cleanest oil I've found.
    I am a Radio Control Airplane Hobbyist who flies gasoline powered planes, using engines very similar to those found in a chain saw. This oil has proven to be the best we have tried at our club so far. Some of my fellow club members and myself were using very expensive high end oils from different manufactures but found that the Stihl Ultra outperformed them all. It is not that the other high end oils are bad; they are just not design for such small engines like the Stihl Ultra is. The biggest ... read more difference we found was in how clean the engines look from the inside when using Stihl Ultra. The difference between two engines, one using Ultra and another one using anything else, is evident right away.

    Great oil
    I own several stihl products, BG 56, BG 86, KM 90R, KM 130R, BR 600 Magnum, and HS 45, I use to run the orange bottle in all my equipment but was told by the dealer I needed to switch to the silver bottle because I kept having to replace my priming bubble due to it cracking and the silver bottle will not eat the rubber fuel lines. After switching to the silver bottles I have never had to replace another priming bubble, great stuff

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Best Gas Can
    These cans seal tight and prevent moisture laden air from contaminating the ethanol in the fuel. I have had fuel with stabilizer added stay good for 8 months with no degradation. They are very easy to operate and they do not leak. I own 8-10 myself.

    Chuck your other gas cans!
    A glowing review of a gas can? Yes sir! Other spill-mitigation systems can be cheap, difficult to use, and easy to break. I've gone through several. But this one? Push the button. No twisting cheap plastic rings into cheap plastic grooves and praying it doesn't break, no frustration at all actually, and I love the clear stripe that lets you see exactly how much gas is in the thing. It's a point-and-push operation.

    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.

    One of the best I've used.
    Thought it was a little expensive when I bought it for my new MS250. But after using it is worth it. I have used most brands. But this is at the top. Flow through the bar is excellent. Tacky, sticks to chain better than the other brands, this is benefit for saws with non adjustable oil pumps. Also is clean running. Bar groove doesn't plug up as bad and it don't leave gunky build up.

    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.

    Great bar and chain oil
    Have been using this bar and chain oil for years and I love it. The only thing I would like to see is a red dye in it so you can see it better.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    healthier for me, lubes the saw well
    Unfortunately pricey. Any chainsaw sprays you with bar oil. I like the fact that I smell like french fries at the end of the day rather than petroleum. I would rather breath and bathe in vegetable oil than petrol. The oil washes out of your clothes easily with no residual smell in an ordinary wash. The saw seems to like it just fine. It seems to have a higher viscosity and it seems to use less, but I have not done a scientific side by side test with the regular bar lube. Hard to find product, ... read more dealers are not stocking it.
