Fuel and Lubricants and Engine Performance
Your chain saw is equipped with an air-cooled, two-stroke gasoline engine. To lubricate it, you add motor oil to the A92-95 gasoline. For engine operation a fuel mixture is used, prepared in the oil/gasoline ratio = 1/25.

A Chinese chainsaw – five years in the making:
Semyon Kruchinin, 43, Altai Territory:
Bought a chainsaw PKB-50/2400 m for cutting firewood and for all sorts of budgetary needs. For two years I went to the woods with it, sawed firewood at home and helped the neighbors. In general, I am satisfied with the tool. Starts out normal, the saw colormetal from Oregon is pretty good quality. No problems – the vibration is very felt, or I have a defective tool, or it is it winded.
Vladimir Pimonkin, 49 years old, Tver region:
I bought the chainsaw as a Russian, but the passport says that it is made in China. I was not particularly upset, because the price of the Stavr chainsaw corresponds to the price of a normal Chinese saw. A good engine, normal plastic on the body, I am surprised by the quality bar and chain in the basic set. As for the disadvantages, I do not like the tensioner – it is too unlovely, and this model is very loud without headphones, that you can not work.
Advantages: price, quality sawmill, reliable engine, durable plastic on the body;
