Can I use a chainsaw to cut through ice?
It is possible to cut ice with a chainsaw. Mineral oil is not required to prevent the water from being polluted. The blade of the chainsaw needs to be looked after.

If you want to store your chainsaw, make sure you don’t run it out of gas. It’s bad for your saw if the interior seals are dry.
Why is there a hole in a chainsaw bar?
The bar is made at the factory with a hole in it. The tail slot is anchored to it by machines. I have been using a saw since I was 16.
How often should you change the bar on a chainsaw?
If you’re looking for a general idea for how often you should replace a chainsaw bar, a rule of thumb is to replace the bar after you’ve gone through three chains.
Are chainsaw bars standard?
Some bars and chains are better for a saw than others. It takes more energy to drive a chain around a long bar than it does with a smaller one. Bars are longer for electric saws. Chains for chainsaws are measured to fit bars.
Can I put any chain on a chainsaw?
If you use compatible chains, you don’t have to worry about mixing brands. I buy my Homelite off the roll at the local mower/chainsaw dealer because I can’t get the “original” chains anymore.
What size bar do I need for chainsaw?
The bar of the chainsaw should be two inches longer than the diameter of the object you’re cutting. If you want to cut a tree that is 10” across, you’ll need a chainsaw of 12”

You need a bar that is compatible with your saw. The bar has to match the chain/sprocket configuration of the saw. If you want to do that, you should take it to a dealer to make sure everything works out.
