For safety reasons, the pole saw is packed and shipped from the factory without any oil in the unit. Before using the saw, consumer must fill with oil. Fill the Oil Tank (Bar Lube Reservoir) with SAE#30 motor oil. There is an oil sight to show when oil is full.

It did not come with any oil but I used the chain oil that I use for my regular chainsaw. So far it's working very well.

No, and the oiling mechanism is really mickey mouse. I use an oilcan and oil the entire chain manually after every several cuts by using a gloved hand to move the chain a complete loop with one hand while oiling with the other. The push bulb oiler that comes with the saw is very inadequate in my opinion. But the saw works really good; don't let the manual oiling requirement stop you from using a very valuable tool. Ber

Go with the staff answer. In my twilight years, I have taken to reading the instruction manuals of things that I buy. The manual stated that bar and chain oil is insufficiently viscous to do a good lubrication job for this. I use 30W in mine.

I used to own an equipment rental company. We used several Remington chainsaws, for folks uncomfortable with gas saws. They performed very well and the design is basically the same since 1980 when I started using them.
They have always had the manual oiler. we used our recycled oil from our 4 cycle equipment oil changes, as our bar oil. It worked great for us, just thought I would share that option with you folks. There was always more old oil around, and a pretty basic form of recycling.

answer 2
Mine uses 3/8 inch, low profile, .050 gauge chain, 40 drive links. This is also sold in Oregon consumer packaged chain as "S40" chain.

I believe that mine originally came with skip-tooth chain, due to the small motor size, but I have used conventional, full-comp chain on it, as long as it is sharp. The low kickback feature on most Oregon consumer chains is nice on this saw, due to the long reach of the saw, and likelihood of hitting other branches while pruning.

You would need an inverter/generator with about 1000 watts to run this Remington Electric Pole Saw.

answer 2
How many watts or amps is your ATV plug good for and is it 12V or 120V. This units needs 800 watts, about 8amps of 120V power. I didn't feel the 1000watt invertor in my dodge diesel would adequately run it under load and didn't want to chance burning it out. Best to use a 1500 - 2000W or greater 120V generator to ensure it has enough juice so doesn't over heat. Remington is not the cadillac of pole saws
but will give good service if it gets fed adequate juice and you don't pinch the chain and still try to run the motor at the same time. Ber
