Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Question: Do I need bar and chain oil? The owner’s manual claims not to use it.
Answer: No. Don’t use bar and chain oil with this saw. Use only SAE 30W oil. Make sure you use #10 for cold weather months and #40 for warmer weather.
Question: Is this chainsaw made in China?
Answer: No, The chainsaw has made in Mexico.
The Remington chainsaw is an excellent purchase for light trimming and pruning. It can also be used for small cutting jobs as long as it is handled gently. Cheaply made parts make this chainsaw delicate. One of the main components inside the saw is a plastic toothed drive wheel. Too much pressure applied to the saw will cause the teeth to strip away and leave the product useless. So as long as you don’t use it for big cutting jobs you will be pleased with the saw’s overall performance. For serious cutting though you’ll want to buy a larger chainsaw without plastic parts for better durability.
