Saw chain and guide bar Oiling
Manual oiling systeM (20v only)
This chain saw is equipped with a manual
oiling system that keeps the saw chain and
guide bar lubricated. Slowly press the primer
bulb (15) on the oil cap (14) three times
before making each cut. Hold the primer bulb
down for 1 second each time. The oil level
indicator (16) shows the level of the oil in
the chain saw. If the oil level is less than a
quarter full, remove the battery from the chain
saw and refill with the correct type of oil.

This chain saw is equipped with an auto
oiling system that keeps the saw chain and
guide bar constantly lubricated. The oil level
indicator (16) shows the level of the oil in
the chain saw. If the oil level is less than a
quarter full, remove the battery from the chain
saw and refill with the correct type of oil.
note:
Use a high quality bar and chain
oil for proper chain and bar lubrication. As
a temporary substitute, a non-detergent
SAE30 weight motor oil can be used. The
