    My 201 has had oiler issues from day one. Part of the problem is that the oiler hose in the tanks gets hung up and won't lay in the bottom. I never think about it when it's not being used so it hasn't been fixed yet...

    Canola is about the price of petroleum, and way cheaper than a lung. I use it in my climbing saws as I'm routinely not burying the saw and cutting right near the air intake system (mouth and nose) to take in the spray.

    I haven't had problems with it. As Marc-Antoine said, it doesn't store well. If things are used regularly, I've had no problem.


    I've had long-hung chains rust, even with petro oil. I did a petro oil dip in a bin, and rehung.

    Well, I got myself another 150tc the other day. My old one had an issue with the coil lead so it missed the bus bringing all my stuff out to Norway. As I was without for the first couple of weeks I splashed out. I thought the first day to run it stock.

    Sod that, the minute I got home out came the drill again. This time mine had a similar setup to the US saws, in that I could remove the deflector with a screw. There was no spark arrester in there though. I just drill a pilot hole in the side and then enlarged it with a standard drill bit. Exhaust was off the saw BTW.

    This thing rips now. BUT we already knew that. It has amazed a couple of the guys who were taking the piss out of the size of it.
    Rich.

    Me too. I love it.
    Except when this stupid dampening spring brakes in the recoil starter. The ratchet becomes properly disconnected from the starter pulley, as this one is actually in two parts

    One of the things that I really like about the MS 150 is the ultra smooth and clean cutting micro chain that it uses.
