GBPack, apologies if you already knew this, not everyone knows: in addition to the mixture of gasoline and two-cycle oil in the fuel tank, a chainsaw requires a separate lubricant for the chain. It's called bar oil, and there's a separate reservoir to handle it. It's a good habit to check the bar oil in between fuelings.

Worth repeating! I almost always top of the chain oil when I add gas. My saws will almost go 2 tanks before the chain oil reservoir runs dry.

The owners manual says to thin the bar and chain oil with diesel fuel or kerosene in cold weather to insure adequate oil flow to the bar and chain.

Check the bar where it attaches to the power head to be sure the oil channel from the oil tank to the bar is free of clogged sawdust.
