Stihl Chainsaw Advice
What else will I need to buy with my Stihl MS180 chainsaw??
2-stroke oil is a specially created motor oil designed to be used in two-stroke engines, such as the one in the MS180.
Stihl have their own range of patented premixed fuel, crafted to provide top-end performance for all products in which it is used.
Stihl MotoMix® has been described as “like a sports drink for your engine”, and boasts a mix of premium non-ethanol, high-octane fuel along with Stihl’s renowned HP Ultra Oil. All of this amounts to a clean product that offers performance and lubrication in great and equal measures.
As there is no ethanol, it is still good to use up to two years after opening. This also means that any used in the Stihl MS180 chainsaw remains just as good, even during long periods without use.
The right chain lubricant can help keep your saw in top condition long into the future. There is a wide range of lubricant options available, all manufactured to ensure the chain is clean and able to be free-running on the guide bar.
It’s important to use a high-quality oil as their properties set them apart from alternatives. Oil should be slippery enough to prevent debris from sticking to the bar, yet sticky enough to not come away from the chain. It shouldn’t emit fumes during operation, either.
It may be possible to use alternatives oils, such as motor oil, vegetable oil, and canola oil, but this is not always advised.
There are a number of optional extras, too. The Masseys showroom is home to a vast array of chainsaw files, replacement bars and chains, safety equipment (PPE) and log saw horses should you need them.
