I didn’t receive any oil in the package. What kind of oil do I use on the chain saw? How much oil will the chain saw need?
The 8 Amp Electric 8” Pole Saw can take any kind of bar and chain oil, which is available in most hardware stores or stores that sell chainsaws. The oil tank capacity will hold 4.06 ounces.
How can I prevent oil leakage?
With a saw designed to self-lubricate during operation, a little oil leakage is normal. To help minimize and prevent leakage, we recommend the following:
-Use only enough oil for the task at hand.
-Remove oil cap and immediately replace it after operation to vent the oil tank. This relieves any accumulated pressure during the oiling process.
-Allow the saw to cool down before storing.
-Wipe down the saw sprocket area.
-Remove oil from saw before storage.
-Store the saw horizontally when not in use.
How do I buy a replacement bar or chain? Can I get them locally?

What is the chain speed?
The chain spins at 8.5 m/s.
Does the Cordless Pole/Chain Saw come pre-assembled?
The Chain Saw does come assembled, but not attached to the pole. Attaching the pole is quick, easy and requires no tools!
How hard is it to attach the pole to the chain saw? What kind of tools will I need?
Attaching the pole is easy and does not require any tools! You’ll be able to connect it in less than 3 minutes. First, screw the pole together securely. To save you on shipping, and to make future storage more convenient, the pole unscrews into two tethered pieces. Once the pole is assembled, unscrew the attachment faceplate from the pole and set aside. Set the handle of the chainsaw around the handle bracket on the pole. Re-attach the faceplate and screw in securely. Attach the chainsaw cord to the cord on the handle, and you’re ready to go!
Can the chain saw be used without the pole?
Yes, the chainsaw can be used with or without the pole, depending on what the job at hand requires.
What is the length of the 8 Amp Pole/Chain Saw?
The full length of the Cordless Pole/Chain saw is 95.5”.
If the total length of the 8 Amp Electric Pole/Chain Saw when attached to the extension pole is roughly 8’, how can it reach up to 10’?
Working directly overhead is never a safe option when trimming limbs from trees, so the calculation isn’t based on direct reach. Since the safest way to approach tree trimming would be standing away from the branch being cut and reaching up at an angle, the total reach factors in the average height of the person using the tool as at least 4’. When standing at the base of the tree and reaching with the Cordless Pole/Chain Saw at an angle, the average user can cut branches at a height of 10 or more feet.
