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.

    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!

    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.

    good oil
    I started using this oil when it first came out, its the only oil that the local store sells, its not that much higher in price, over the lower grade of oil, the only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn'e have much color to the gas when mixed, whish Stihl would make it a darker color.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This can is TOUGH!
    This can will withstand the wear & tear of working in the woods. The cap is a bit hard to remove because of the serrations on it that are designed to keep it from working loose, but a little practice makes it easier. The handles make it easy to dispense or carry. One should make certain they depressurize the contents prior to fueling. Pressurization can result due to exposure to heat. Failure to do so may cause a rapid, unwanted ejection of fuel. This may be accomplished by depressing the ... read more plunger briefly before tipping the can for fueling. I suggest an optional model marked or colored for TWO-CYCLE MIX.

    Acceptable Eco Compliant Gas Can
    I’ve managed to hang onto my “old” non automatic closing to avoid the “hardware store “ quality auto close nozzles that spill gas everywhere and break almost instantaneously when used... I’ve had a few experiences and constantly question if this is progress... BUT this No-Spill Fuel Container is a different story all together. It is made well enough and seems to hold up under use. The price is not bad and it simply works! It is nice to be able to meter the fuel into the machines with a push of a ... read more button and not have to press the nozzle into the opening to release the fuel... usually onto the floor.. Anyway, this is a different animal and if you are tired of paying good money for hardware store eco junk, this is the gas can you want! It is well worth any extra expense! I recommend it 100%!!

    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 .

    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.

    My favorite 2 cycle oil
    This oil is excellent. My Stihl equipment runs so much better with this oil. I recommend this oil to anyone.

    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.

    Winter Bar & Chain Oil Will Flow When Your Coffee's Frozen !
    I use Winter Bar & Chain Oil in place of Platinum Bar & Chain Oil on the coldest of cutting days. The summer Oils will turn to molasses or jello at some point. The end result of that could be a "toasted" Bar! If you are still using Woodcutter Bar & Chain Oil, your switch-over to Winter Bar & Chain Oil should occur sooner as it thickens quicker than Platinum Bar & Chain Oil will at a given temperature. Remember, the newer Saws deliver less Oil to the Bar & Chain than the older models do, so ... read more your switch-over point may be more critical depending which Oil & Saw you have. Stihl, please color-code these Oils so we know what is in our Saw!!!
