Some people refer to bar oil as machine oil mainly because it is used to lubricate the bars and chains of a chainsaw. That said the correct term for this type of oil is bar oil mainly because its primary use is in high RPM machines like the chainsaw. There are various types of bar oils with some oil manufacturers even using natural vegetable oil. However, petroleum based products are still considered the best even though they may not be eco-friendly. The right oil for your chainsaw will ensure years of service life not to mention making the machine economical to use.
There is no right or wrong way to buy bar oil. Ideally, you’ll want to purchase the oil by a brand that you trust because you have used it for numerous years. However, if you are new to buying bar oil always buy one manufactured and sold by a high-end brand such as Liqui Moly, Castrol, and High Performer, etc. By purchasing a well-known brand of oil, you can be assured that the oil will not result in damage to your chainsaw. Another way to buy the right bar oil is to refer to the chainsaw’s user manual for recommendations. Usually, manufacturers will recommend that users purchase a particular oil for their machine.
