Heavy Duty (HD) Chain Oil is specifically designed for the lubrication of chains and guide bars on modern high-speed chain saws operating under severe conditions. It is recommended for spring, summer and fall over a range of ambient temperatures from -5 °C to +40 °C.
HD Chain Oil can also be used in industrial applications where tacky anti-wear oil is preferred. This includes chain drives and plain bearings.
HD Chain Oil is not recommended as chain saw engine lubricants.
Features and Benefits
|Features||Advantages and Potential Benefits|
|Reduced Wear||Chain, sprocket and guide bar wear is reduced by the special antiwear properties incorporated in the oil|
|Minimized Rust||Rust and corrosion of oil-wetted components is reduced due to the addition of rust inhibitors|
|Reduced Consumption||A tackiness additive reduces "throw-off", lowering oil consumption while maintaining an adequate oil film in spite of higher centrifugal forces and high local temperatures|
|Easy Visibility||A red dye is added to allow easy visual determination of chain lubrication while the saw is operating|
- Woodcutters working at moderate temperatures (-5°C to 40°C) can select HD Chain Oil
- Industrial applications for chain lubrication on industrial drives
