what oil do I use for a Homelight electric model UT43120-A saw?

Lost the oil bottle
Asked by: Mike
I prefer Johnson's Baby Oil in mine, it's cleaner and smells better when cutting.

What model chain does Homelite have?

Asked by: john123
I am not sure of the specifics, but at the Home Depot where I purchased mine they had a selection of chains and one of them matched the replacement number listed in the saw's owner's manual.

16 in. 12 Amp Electric Chainsaw is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 204.

The first day I used it I had to keep tightening it every so often and finally something gave, the chain came off and it wouldn't adjust any longer. I took the cover off and found that the tensioning mechanism is simply a lightweight screw that pushes against a plastic edge. In my case the plastic edge finally gave way and the screw jumped up over the edge and left a groove in the plastic (see attached photo). It took a lot of effort to get the screw back down where it's supposed because it was jammed up over the edge. Now that there's a groove there it will probably never stay where it's supposed to. Very poor design and is not able to handle even light work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice for the money and size No assembly required just open the box add oil and start cutting trees. that was one of the best parts about this after the hurricane here in Florida. it was a great help and with other high priced options, im glad that i chose this one. Homelite brand is a great brand ive bought many of their products and im very satisfied with all of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised Ready to go right out of the box - just add the oil. Made short work of my large ash tree. Love not needing to deal with gas/oil or that tool that always seemed to be missing in the old models to adjust the chain. Seems sturdy so far.

After struggling with a gasoline powered chain saw, I ran across this bad boy on the Net. The low price got me running down to Home Depot where I purchased one immediately. Brought it back, sat down and read the entire manual. Btw, I didn't even know electric chain saws existed. I plugged it in and began cutting downed limbs in my backyard. I was absolutely amazed at how well it worked. It cut through those large limbs/logs as though they were butter. That's how easy it made my task, created by Hurricane Matthew. I would recommend this product to the world. I give it 5 stars and an A+. Thank you Homelite. You're the best!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use chainsaw I have used my Homelite 16" electric chainsaw for a few months now. I use the chainsaw to cut logs and branches from around the yard mostly hard wood Red Oak, Maple and others. I find the saw easy to use it is quite has plenty of power for logs up to 15" to 16". The Chain is easy to adjust and the auto chain oiler works well, easy to fill, no driping of oil on bench after use. I have never had the chain jump off the chain bar. One con I wish that the chain had a brake auto stop when you let go of the trigger. A big pro not having to mix and store gas, no smell, no noise, very easy to use. Pete in North Carolina.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! Went looking around for a chain saw to take out a pair of aspen trees that were dying in my yard. Saw offerings from Stihl and Husqvarna, but the cheapest one was around $150 and was an annoying 2-stroke mix gas model. I have nothing in my posession which uses mix gas. Serious, when are they gonna come out with 4-strokes? I'm extremely skeptical of electric tools that have traditionally been gas powered. Anyway, decided against a gas powered saw and found this Homelite electric 16" saw at Home Depot. Price tag was something like $75. Right off the bat, half as much as the lowest tier gas saw I could find. I picked it up. A nice sales associate handed me a bottle of bar and chain oil, I picked up some gloves and off I went. I read the instruction manual and figured out how to adjust the chain and put oil in it. I also removed the safe-t tip with a metric 8mm wrench. I've used chainsaws a lot in the past and this gimmick needed to go. The oil level is easy to see on the tank and only requires a little bit at a time, but it does go through it. Cutting up these two aspens I had to fill the reservoir 2 times. The instruction manual also states that "it is normal for some oil to leak out when not being used" and that when you're finished for the day, you should empty out the oil reservoir (by opening the lid and dumping it back into a container). I saw some people were complaining about this in reviews. Hey, read the instructions man, that's why they put it there! Climbing the ladder to de-limb the tree first was really nice. The saw is very light compared to gas saws and you don't have to struggle getting it started or keeping it running heading up the ladder. When you're ready to cut, just pull the trigger. The chain it comes with makes monster size wood chips, and cuts sufficiently quick. It certainly doesn't win any speed awards, but wow, it can cut! When it came to making the 2 cuts to fell the tree, it nimbly chewed away the gap. Now comes the real test, logging this pair of 30' trees. The saw easily cut through the 12" trunks, just be steady with the force and watch the chips. I never bound the saw or "stalled it", which was impressive. This saw is exactly what I needed. I don't have many trees to cut down or prune, so most of the time, it will probably sit in disuse. But I don't have to worry about spoiling gas, dirty air filters, and exhaust fumes. Just fill it up with oil, plug it in, and get cutting. One other thing, make sure you use a heavy-gauge extension cord that can handle the amperage at distance. I have a 100' 12ga.

I purchased this for small logs (8' to 4' logs - 4' to 10' long - 4" to 10" round) that are dropped close to the house to be cut, split and stacked for seasoning/drying. My other saws are gas (14"-16"-20") and are used when large amount of cutting will be done with out shutting the saw down. I have done quite a bit of cutting with this saw and it performs the job well. I load a log on the holder and cut them to size. Put down the elect, saw and move logs load another .... etc. If the saw starts to sound a little funny tighten the bar with the hand knob ... you will learn quick if you don't. I did :-) Like boats we all forget the bilge plug once. Does its job, light and easy to handle. Good size bar oil storage and visible as well. Over all good job Homelite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saw for medium, occasional use.. Came assembled and ready to use out of the box. Only needed to ad chain saw oil to the reservoir. You need to buy some oil since this was not included. I have used the saw only once to saw some 3-4 " limbs from a large pine tree, and to saw up the smaller branches on the ground. The saw did an excellent job and I look forward to my next trimming project for it. Its a good value for the medium /occasional use homeowner. It came with a storage bag which is a nice feature.
