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.

    Take Care of your INVESTMENT!
    Look, Stihl power equipment deserves to be taken care of. This is especially important during break-in periods when friction & heat will be at their highest. Stihl will increase your product warranty when you purchase HP Ultra Oil in combination with your equipment purchase! Ask your dealer for details. I often wonder if I had been using this oil in my FS-550 a few years back...it wouldn't have seized up! Trust me, I do use it now in my MS-362, MS-661, BR-600, FS-460, & FS-560. That is way too ... read more much of an investment in equipment not to take care of. Friction performance is way better than standard 2-cycle mix.

    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.

    Best Option for Your Tools
    Originally purchased this oil to extend the warranty on a new chainsaw and became hooked to the quality operation of all my stihl engines. This stuff is superb and will make all your 2-cycle engines reach peak performance. My three stihl tools chainsaw (MS 271), trimmer (FS 130), and blower (BR 600), all burn this oil and I have found it to be superb. I switch to the pre-mixed product for my last run each fall/winter. Use this oil - you will not be disappointed.

    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    The only 2 cycle oil I use in my chainsaws and weedeater
    I use Stihl Performance Oil in all my tools - 009, 044, MS 660 and FS85 Pro and I have not had any motor issues, all still have great compression with very little smoke from the exhaust. The 009 and 044 are 15 years + old and both have had 1 spark plug change in all this time.I check the plugs every month, nice brown tint indicating a good burn of the fuel and oil. I have replaced bars and chains numerous times as these saws get worked every other week but the motors run like new. Very pleased ... read more with this oil......

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
