Mccullough chain saw
[Return to Topics]

I have been given a mccullough 5-10 automatic chain saw. Sorry I don't know the year. I need to know the oil/gas ratio so I don't ruin the thing the first time I use it. Any help will be appreciated.

There is this stuff called 'One Shot'...

It is a 'two cycle' oil that you mix the same regardless of the 'ratio' says it is good from 16:1 to 50:1...I have used it for two years in every two cycle I own including saws and am pleased as punch with it...I only have one 'mixed' gas can now instead of 3 or 4 laying about...

Figure between 50:1 and 25:1. i know that sounds rough but sorta depends on the weather - in hot summer, you need more oil in the mix to carry off the extra heat. Winter, a leaner mix starts easier. Anything in that range won't hurt ya. :)
BTW, when that Mac starts balking on startup, take out the air filter and throw it away. Fast engines like to breathe, the holes are too small & they plug up with everything that could just as well add to compression .....

there is a super group of cutters on a club site on Yahoo.Com. type in 'lumber milling' and I believe the site will be listed. go to the archieve pages and hunt for gas/oil mix for your saw brand. i think it is 40-1 but they can tell you for sure... on another note- when you are tired of fussin with the thing get the Husqvarna XP series saw, you'll never regret it. we use a 371XP and have fell and bucked wood for 3 years without a hitch- over 60 loads so far - my 2 cents.

I think you're probably going to find it's 20:1 but I'd go with 32:1. Don't think you can go wrong with that.
