Not sure if this the proper forum, but you folks have been so helpful in the past that I had to give this one a try.
I have a Husqvarna 350 chainsaw, 4 years old but only run about 10 hours. (Maximum)
It's started leaking bar oil (after sitting for several months I found several ounces in the bottom of the carry case.
Since it's out of warranty I'm wondering if I just take it to a shop or if this might be a relatively easy project for a mechanically inclined old graybeard with little experience working on saws, but success with replacing the rear axle wheel bearing on my lawn tractor. (Just to give you an idea.)
Interesting. It had been sitting for about 6 months. I'll clean it up, dry it off, top it off, and keep an eye on it this summer as I use it intermittently.
See if it seems excessive or not.
As mentioned, they do tend to leak bar oil. This doesn't mean a seal, o-ring or something has not failed. I would see if you can find a parts explosion online. If it is a simple seal it should be no big deal to fix if you can work a hand tool or too. I was a PMT for Sears for awhile and never found chainsaws to be too daunting.
