Oils & Lubricants

A selection of oils to keep your engine and saw chain running smoothly

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.

    The best there is.
    I've been using motor oils for years now on my RC plane gas engine and none got to the results this oil did. The engine is cleaner than ever, no carbon on the pistons, the spark plug is very clean but, wet, so the engine is NOT running lean, the exhaust ports are very clean like the day Ive got the engine, and I can tell you this after running more than 35 Gal with it . Before that I ran a different kind of oil, a premium style, that left a lot of carbon in the engine, the STIHL cleaned it all.

    STIHL HP Ultra 2 stroke full synthetic oil
    I've bought a 6 pack of this oil with several Stihl machines I have bought, and it doubled the warranty on my machines which was awesome. It burns very cleanly and hardly puts off any smoke unless the engine is cold, it does like to drip a bit out the exhaust if you leave your engine at idle long enough but at higher speeds it burns efficiently and barely puts any wear on my engines. I recently took my Stihl BG55 apart that I ran the oil in and the rings were very well lubricated and not ... read more sticking whatsoever and the engine had no scoring on the cylinder or piston, keep in mind the engine has over 250 running hours! I put the engine back together and it still continues to power on year after year. I also use it in my 4 mix Stihl FS90R trimmer and it runs very nice with it. I recommend it for the price, it's a very high quality oil.

    Expensive but Impressive So Far
    I stated using Stihl Ultra Synthetic 2 stroke oil last year. I use it not only in my Stihl equipment but also in equipment from other manufacturers. Previously, I was using the Stihl Premium 2 cycle oil and 91 octane gas. I stated having quite a few carb issues with this mix in the last 2 years so my dealer suggested given the Ultra version a try. Since I started using it, I have noticed: easier starts, better fuel efficiency, increased power and performance, and it appears to be cleaning out ... read more carbon deposits as it works as well. All in all, the oil is expensive but from my experiences, it seems to be worth it.

    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, avoid at low temperatures
    My boss bought this stuff for our crew because we go through 40 to 50 (or more) gallons of bar oil per work season and none of us liked the idea of spraying petroleum all over the forest. I also bought some for myself for other cutting jobs and I like it a lot. However, in temps lower than -15 F, it's too viscous and doesn't lubricate well. I switched back to regular cold weather oil after scorching the bar on my 362. It also smokes if your chain is dull and you're running the saw fast (had a ... read more coworker do this often)...cold weather oil does that too if run in warm air temps. However, in normal conditions it smells interesting, does a good job lubricating the saw, supposedly breaks down quickly, and landowners like the idea of it...good stuff!

    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.

    Platinum Protection for my Equipment
    I’m running this in all of my saws and it’s the best I’ve ever seen. It’s a clear color so pay attention when filling the tank, but the performance is top shelf! I’ve used it well below freezing and it flows just fine, especially when the Saw is good and warm. It protects in both the hot/humid weather and the cold. I do t use separate bar lines for cold weather any more. Just the platinum for all conditions! It does not clog up my tank or pump either. The tackiness is great and it stays in place ... read more very well even at high chain speeds. All in all it’s the best chain/bar Lube I’ve ever used and it’s well worth the modest cost difference.

    Excellent Product
    I have tried cheaper brands with poor results. This oil keeps the chain oiled and bar cooler.

    Platinum Bar Oil is a CUT-ABOVE the Rest !
    I was skeptical at first browse of this product. I thought, at the time, there was no good reason to swap from my many years of using Woodcutter Bar & Chain Oil. This is my first year using Platinum Bar & Chain Oil. What I have discovered is that it takes less overall quantity of this Oil to achieve the same level of lubrication provided by it's predecessor. Another benefit is this Oil is not as temperature-sensitive as the Woodcutter Bar & Chain Oil is. In other words, it will perform ... read more satisfactorily at somewhat lower temperatures before you ultimately need to switch over to Winter Bar & Chain Oil. It will take you some time to get used to having less visible Oil on your Chain, but the proof of proper lubrication is a cool-running Bar that isn't burning the paint off! However, if you have one of the newer Saws, be prepared to turn-up the Oil Quantity setting to near maximum level...even when using Platinum Bar & Chain Oil. I found the "E" setting on my new MS-362,461, & 661 to be too lean with 20", 25", & 32" Bars, respectively. So, I guess this means that the Woodcutter Bar & Chain Oil may be an unsatisfactory choice for proper lubrication on the newer Saws with lower-volume Oil Pumps & newer Bars with smaller Oil Delivery Holes.

    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 Non-Synthetic Oil
    I purchased this oil to use with my first Stihl tool (hedge trimmer that was well used 12 months a year in Miami). I was impressed with the ease of use with the pre-measured containers and the performance in the machine. I’ve used it with 93 Octane and with 100LL Aviation Fuel with great results. It seems to protect the motors in the hot weather of South Florida without any issues and the price is right. I have since discovered the HP Ultra Synthetic which I run now after buying the 2 Stihl ... read more tool to extend the warranty. The HP Ultra is marginally more expensive but seems to smoke less. I’ve never had an issue with the High Performance oil so it’s lived up to its claims of protecting the machine, but for me, the slightly more expensive HP Ultra is the way to go for my equipment. That being said, the STIHL High Performance oil outperformed all the other oils I’ve tried to that point. I’m never using the Huskie brand oil ever again in any machine I will or do own again and I’m not sure you would be able to find a better Natural Dinosaur Juice Oil for your 2-stroke.

    Wonderful product.
    Started using this oil when I bought my first stihl chainsaw in 2004 . love it ! Have never had any problems with it . where I live the synthetic oil cost about the same but I still use HP oil. See no need to change . Unless you have a 4-mix engine this oil will work great .

    Keeps flowing when the fingers and toes are frozen
    Our rail-trail volunteers cut dead ash and elm during the winter months to remove "widow makers" from our section of the North Coast Inland Trail in Huron County, Ohio. I switched to the Winter bar oil to provide lower viscosity to the bar when the temps crash and I am in insulated coveralls. As judging by the consumption of the oil, it is getting to the bar, sprocket and chain as it needs to. Thicker, summer weight bar oil showed a reluctance to move out of the oil tank on the saw. Buying a ... read more gallon Winter Bar & Chain Oil is cheaper than chains, bars and sprockets by far! One of my dealer's technicians owned to me that he uses it year-round! I think, however, I'd opt for higher viscosity lube in the warmer times. That's particularly the case with the more ecologically-frugal automatic oiling systems. When the lubrication system is designed for the minimum, what goes to the bar needs to get there every time...

    For the really cold days
    I keep a quart around for the really cold days. In all honesty when the saw is warmed up I just run the Platinum Bar Lube and I haven’t had any issues. For the really really cold days this does flow better through the pump and onto the bar. It protects well but I switch when the temperature gets above 20F.

    Best cans ever
    I now own five of these cans. I use them for fueling all my equipment. The reason I have so many is that I keep extra fuel on hand for our generator due to outages. I also put them on the trailer for snowmobile trips up north. They are excellent and don't leak at all. They don't even leak when hauled around in the back of my truck. The best thing is that you can position them properly and then just press the button to start the flow of fuel. No more messes!

    Best fuel container on the market hands down.
    I have purchased ten of these containers, 4 one and one quarter gallon, 4 of the five gallon and 2 of the two and one half gallon size. They work just as described. No spill I donated seven of these and kept a 1 1/4 and 2 fives for my self. On my fives I usually put in 3 to 4 gallons as it is easier to lift. and then as I empty one I can switch to the other one for my mower and pressure washer. I like the 1 1/4/. The small nozzle is just right for my chain saws, blower, edger and weedeater.
