He Uses Canola Oil To Lube Chainsaw
Ive been using canola oil as bar and chain lubricant in my 6 chainsaws for about 2 years. Im very pleased with how it works, says Gerry Hawkes, Woodstock, Vt.
  Its far better for operator health to not be breathing in petroleum oils and better for the environment. It lubes just as well or better and comes from a crop grown on the farm. Whats more, it costs less.
  But you dont have to believe me. There are both European and Canadian studies showing how effective it is as a lube oil. Theres a good online article at http://learn.eartheasy.com/2010/11/using-vegetable-oil-to-replace-chainsaw-oil/.
  Hawkes is a forester with several successful inventions. His latest is the WHaTS hand cart an innovative leverage and transport cart that can do a number of jobs around the farm. Check it out at www.WheeledHandToolSystems.com.
