Chain lubrication is important when using a chainsaw to prevent your chainsaw chain overheating when cutting and to ensure it moves around the bar friction free. This prolongs life time of bar and chain. Follow the instructions in this short video to learn how to check that your chainsaw chain lubrication system works correctly. First check your oil level.
