Does anyone use the SuperTech bar and chain oil on their saws? Or the TSC house brand? Is it worth switching it to? I have used Stihl with good effect, but it is pricey.

I always use Stihl because cheeper oils will get lumps that will wreck the gear driven oiler, unless the oil is room temperature.

I have used Stihl, Husquavarna, TSC house brand, and just about everything in between. I can't tell any difference in my Huskies - just my wallet.

Luckily for me, 98% (I am hedging in case of a freak ice storm that downs trees or limbs) of the time I will be cutting in at least 50* or greater temperatures living in Texas, and most of that at 75 or greater.

In that vein, I understand that it is good practice on cool-cold days to let the motor warm up four or five minutes before jumping in to let it heat the oil.

Ive got a tree farm, use three different saws, and
agree with TOH. My Huskys dont seem to know the
difference. I lean toward the thicker tackier stuff
in hot weather, and in winter thinner the better.

My uncle poured used motor oil in his Stihl for bar oil, for 25 years.
Then he sold the wood burning stove and the saw. Both still working.
I don't know how long his bars lasted, but they had the greased sprocket
tips, and he did grease those regularly.

Stihl is better oil them some of the cheap stuff. Had a gallon of the cheap stuff and it stunk and gummed up the bar.

Thats an important tip. I don't know how many people I've run
across that don't know they make a greaser for the sprocket.

Most all bar oils in my town is 30w. Rural King sells a winter oil, 10w, and the regular 30w. The oil at my walmart is 30w. I found that when it's cold, my saw needs 10w or the chain is dry.

Sounds like I am good to go with either SuperTech or TSC house brand. Both are about 8 per gallon right now.

I like the tsc stuff or the ace house brand is less expensive
than stihl but is of good quality. Walmart stuff is ok but is less
tacky more like running straight auto 30W.

I always try and look at how much I am saving, for
instance if I use 1 gallon a year , what do I
save? $4.00, who cares? not worth the bother, why
not use as suggested by manufacture? If I used a
100 gallons , well maybe. Just MO.

Guess I am both cheap AND lucky. Been using old tractor oil on my saws since about 1955. Haven't noticed a problem. Of course, I rarely use those things when it's below freezing.

I have not heard any complain about TSC being tacky, and in fact, some say it is more tacky than Stihl. In my investigations, it appears that Super Tech may be a little thinner an less tacky, but in cold weather that is better.
