No. You'll have to buy your own. AND if you have a lot of work to do, I would buy a gallon, its cheaper per ounce than smaller containers and this saw (along with a lot of chainsaws) seems to go through it at a good pace.

Answer: 
I have used mine maybe a dozen times - oiler still does not flow very much. I took my first one back - thought something wrong with it. Took this one to shop - tech said it is working but VERY slowly. He said with more use it will work better. I put oil on the chain myself before I start and during cutting. Makes a BIG difference. Otherwise, chain gets dull fast.

Yes, the Homelite chainsaw does indeed have a gravity feed chain lubricating system. It really works, sometimes TOO well! Never a doubt it is working, though.
I had this out again last week for some work and still I am so pleased to have this tool.

Answer: 
You need to expose the roots by digging. I used a blower to blow away junk before cuttting roots with the chainsaw. You can use a chainsaw to cut, but don't get the blade in the sand because the sand will get in the oil and will not be good for the smooth rotation of the saw blade.

Thank you, Karen. This chainsaw is for light duty use only. Please use your best judgement when trimming roots from a tree. There is not exact answer as there are too many factors we have to consider in helping you such as: what kind of tree, what is the diameter of the roots, etc.

Answer: 
Yes, if you can be 100% positive that you don't get the blade/chain in any dirt!!! If the root is partially buried, it's possible to dig a hole around it, but then you'd have to use the tip of the saw, some people do that, but it is NOT a safe way to cut with a chain saw!!

Answer: 
I have used one of these saws to cut some very large roots, but I dig down and clear all the dirt around the root so it is cutting only wood. If you cut "in the dirt" it will shorten the life of the chain and dull the cutters. Of course, you can always buy more chains and replace them.

Using an app on my iPhone, my saw clocked 86dB at 7 feet, running free (no cutting when we took the measurement). A friend's gas saw was 111dB.
Note that you can't always trust sound pressure meters on an iDevice - their mics have AGC (Automatic Gain Control)... but I CVAN attest that the electric saw was much less noisy than the gas.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 448 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use I don't really have any complaints with this chainsaw. I use it every other year for cutting cedar tops that get out of control. Easy to add oil. No issues with it and It's probably cheaper to buy a new unit than getting a replacement chain/sharpening it (which I don't have the files to do). August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NICE ELECTRIC CHAINSAW I bought this 9 AMP Homelite 14" chainsaw to replace a 12" Remington electric saw I purchased years ago as the housing cracked making it difficult to keep the bar and chain tight. It worked real well for me and had seen real hard use sawing up a old building I tore town. I needed this Homelite to replace it so I could do some willow tree removal,etc. So far I'm real happy with this saw. It cut through the green willow branches like a hot knife through butter ! Automatic chain oiler, chain tension. Put some bar oil in it, plug it in,let't rip. NICE! Decent quality for the price,couldn't get any simpler. I expect to get a reasonable life out of this unit with light duty tree trimming and general light chainsaw use. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This little thing is a work horse. I've had two of these and they work really well for small trees. This is my second one and I've had it for three years. The first one was over used and it burnt out but that was my fault. You can't use these for 4 hours in a row or they will fail. I've included pictures, with some flair, of a tree I cut down yesterday. I took an hour break in the middle when the chain was hot to the touch. Some things to remember with this. 1. Use the bar and chain oil and make sure there is always some in the reserve. It will go fast. 2. Tighten the chain often because it can get loose and you don't want to break it. 3. Take small breaks if it starts getting too hot. I don't know what too hot is but I, and others here, bunt them out but going too long. Follow those rules and you shouldn't have problems cutting down most small trees. April 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw for the price I own and have owned many chainsaws over the years. This saw is the best electric I have ever used. I keep an electric saw as a backup mostly for those days when all else fails and I need to finish up a job. Has lots of torque and a steel chain sprocket instead of plastic like so many electric saws. I'm sure the people who had problems with these saws were not experienced with chainsaws or were asking too much of a small saw. This thing will cut anything, if you keep it oiled, adjusted, and don't crowd it! August 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really Good Chainsaw Worked great right out of the box. Just fill with chainsaw oil and you're ready to go. I cut into small sections 20' of a felled tree (around 12-14" diameter). Went well. I did need to remove the safety tip when the diameter was closer was more than 12", and that worked out well. No issues with the chainsaw. Worked as well if not better than I hoped. I would definitely recommend to others as I felt comfortable and safe (as safe as you can feel using a chainsaw). Electric chainsaws seem quite a bit less intimidating than a gas powered chainsaw. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did the Job My Pear tree needed some branches removed as it yields way too much fruit annually, this chainsaw is great and at a great price too, Highly recommended August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pleased with this purchase I purchased this to cut up smallish branches (up to 6-8" diameter) from a few trees around the yard. This chainsaw has plenty of power to do that, and is quite easy to use. I also got this for the kickback preventer tip, and that seems to be doing its job. My only complaint is that I am getting small drips of bar and chain oil as its sitting in storage. I don't know if that is common with other chain saws in storage or not. This chainsaw has done everything I needed it to do so far. Time will tell if the long-term build quality is good or not. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent results The saw handled very well, it was easy to use and worked just like I wanted. August 23, 2016
