The use of vegetable oil for chain-saw chain and bar lubrication

Field Note: General Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada ( 35): 2 pp.
The use of vegetable oil for chain-saw chain and bar lubrication
Studies of the use of a vegetable oil (Binol) for chainsaw chain and bar lubrication are reported. Binol is rapeseed-based with additives and its properties include a high flash point, high viscosity index, good resistance to shear and high lubricity. All users found it to be an acceptable alternative to mineral oil. A 40% reduction in oil consumption could be achieved with Binol, but its cost is double that of mineral oil.
