We offer a range of oils and lubrications for garden, arboriculture and landscaping machinery. Whether 2-stroke or 4-stroke, we have suitable oils for engines and chains. We also stock petroleum and silicone-based lubricants.
2 Stroke Oil is used in 2-stroke crankcase compression engines. Depending on the engine, the oil is mixed at varying proportions, with petrol for lubrication. 2-stroke oils have a variety of base oils – petroleum, castor oil, semi-synthetic or synthetic, the type required is determined by the engine type. Modern small garden equipment often requires synthetic oils. Our range of oils are available in 100ml, 1L and 5L volumes, we also carry mixing bottles and jugs.
4 Stroke oil is the lubricant for internal combustion engines, found in lawn mowers and some other garden machinery. It is used to remove heat from moving parts, reduces friction and wear on moving parts. 4-stroke oil often contains additives to help remove sludge and varnish, and which inhibits corrosion and oxidation. It can be single or multi-grade, depending on the engine and the climate. Choose the oil which matches the viscosity and temperature requirements of the machine. Available in a range of volumes and brands.
Chain oil is required to keep the chain of a chain saw lubricated. Because this oil is flicked off the chain as it rotates, it is a thick, sticky oil. Because it is used up quickly due to the centrifugal force on the rotating chain, fill the chain oil reservoir when refueling the machine. Chain oil is available in non-biodegradable and biodegradable versions. In some localities, professional tree surgeons must use biodegradable oil. We stock several brands of oil, in 1L and 5L sizes.
We stock a variety of lubricants, sprays and cleaners to keep machines performing at their best. We have several types of grease for multi-purpose and heavy-duty use. We have fluid grease for chainsaw bearings. We carry silicone and aerosol lubricants, wax protect sprays, aerosol and non-aerosol solvents and cleaners. Our product range is available to keep your garden machinery running well.
We also have a range of combination fuel and oil containers. These containers have separate reservoirs for the fuel and oil. We also stock 5L fuel containers with filling spouts. These containers are UN or SI 1982/630 compliant. Replacement caps and filling spouts for these containers are also available. Please speak to a member of staff if you are unsure what product you require.
