How much bar oil does this thing use? I filled mine to full and with just a few cuts to trim a couple trees. I didn't even use it for 5 mins. All the bar oil was used up.
Asked by: crabjoe
I didn't have any problem. It used about the same chain oil that a gas unit did.

Can I put a 12" chain and bar on it?

Can I put a 12" chain and bar on it?
Asked by: Robby
I would not try it unless you have a 12 inch bar. If you have a 12 inch bar and a 12 inch chain, then why not. It may run a little faster, but who cares if it cuts quicker.

I understand a 1600w/2000w(peak) would run a 12 amp saw.. My issue is startup amps. Motors draw more than the rated amps when starting up.. for example a AC compressor might draw double it's rated amps to start and that's the reason there's capacitors in it. I'm guessing the motor in the saw does something similar. That's why I'm asking a 2000w peak generator will work.. So maybe my question should be, what's the starting watts or amps needed for this saw?
Asked by: crabjoe
To be honest, I could not answer that accuratel, but for my Westinghouse 9000w gen, it worked great, even at a cold start. I don't believe the chainsaw takes a heavy load to start. It is light weight and easy to start. Not must pulling power when cutting.

Is this preassembled?

Is this preassembled?
Asked by: Oscar
Almost. Just a few pieces to put together and you're ready to rock and roll. If memory serves, I believe there were do things that I had to do when I got the saw... 1) open the box, 2) pull the saw out of the box and then plug it into the electrical outlet to run. Pretty straight forwards.
