Arbor Ace switched to a vegetable-based bar and chain oil. Why does this matter and how does this impact you, the customer?
Well first, let’s take a look at what Bar and Chain oil does.
As a chainsaw is cutting, a pump inside the saw is constantly applying oil to the chain to assist in cutting. At high chain speed while cutting, oil is thrown off the chain into the surrounding environment. ie; lawn and garden areas. Also, the oil from cutting will end up on the wood that is trucked to the recycling center and it will end up in the mulch back in the garden beds we are trying to protect. Petroleum based oils are more harmful to the environment than the vegetable-based alternative which we use.
The switch to this eco friendly oil is costlier to us, but we feel it is well worth it for the health and safety of our clients, our employees, and the environment. We strive to always do the right thing.
