this chainsaw uses so much oil that it is getting on everything. Look at how much oil drip out of it after letting it sit for a few minutes in the garage. not only that the echo premium bar and chain oil stinks to high heaven. I expected that a chainsaw would use oil but I didn't know it would make such a mess on everything. does your drip this much oil?

I have an Echo professional-grade chainsaw. And yes it drips a lot of oil after I use it. Oil is constantly added to the chain as it is run. And the manufacturer recommends you fill the oil tank every time you fill the gas tank.

With these battery operated sauce I do not know from experience.

As with my chainsaw, maybe there is an adjustment for the amount of oil used while using?
