Storing a saw over winter.

Recommended Posts

Another approach is to actually try not to winterise it at all.

Find a little job to do with your machines once every couple of weeks to keep things moving through. 

The added bonus is that you continue your usuall habits of checking and monitoring the machine for problems. 

Really, no machine likes being idle.

Good tips .... is it ok to leave the oil in the saw, or should this be drained too?

Biolubricant should be topped up to the brim to eliminate oxygen in the tank which would cause it to decay and turn to resin.
