Reviews

BioPlus™ Bar and Chain Oil is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BBQ smoking wood I cut and use wood for BBQ smoking and always fret about using petroleum based bar oils in regards to health and taste. I've considered using vegetable oil but was not sure which oil to use and how it would perform in a chainsaw. Seeing as how Stihl has their brand on this stuff, I have no doubt that this is what I've been looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safer to use. BioPlus is a better smelling oil. Kind of smells like french fries when you really put 'er to work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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, dealers are not stocking it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
