Field study with logging company proves Saber superiority under extreme conditions.
MSOIL SABER PROFESSIONAL PRE-MIX 2-CYCLE OIL is formulated with exclusive
AMSOIL synthetic base oils and premium additives. Designed for lean mix ratios in
two-cycle motors, Saber Professional has excellent lubricity and cleanliness properties
to control friction and help prevent wear, plug fouling and ring sticking.
Many Applications, One Mix Ratio
Saber Professional has a recommended mix ratio of 100:1, even when the application
calls for a ratio of 50:1 gas-to-oil. Its high-quality base oils resist consumption
and evaporation better than conventional two-cycle oils. The
combination of premium base oil chemistry and superior additive
technology allows Saber Professional to deliver maximum performance
and protection in small engine applications; even at 100:1.
Logging Outfit Puts Saber To The Test
AMSOIL Synthetic 100:1 2-Cycle Oils have been providing
improved performance and protection in two-cycle motors since
1973. However, there are still consumers who struggle with the
notion that Saber provides optimum protection at 100:1 when the equipment manufacturer has
specified a 50:1 mix ratio. In order to once again demonstrate the superiority of AMSOIL Synthetic
2-Cycle Oils, AMSOIL provided a logging company with six Stihl MS 440 chainsaws. Three of the
saws were operated using the manufacturer recommended
two-cycle oil at the recommended
mix ratio (50:1). The other three saws
had AMSOIL Saber Professional installed at a
mix ratio of 100:1. The loggers used all six saws
as they normally would for 200 hours.
200 Hours of Abuse
It is important to remember that normal use of
chainsaws by a commercial logging outfit easily qualifi es as extreme
severe service. At the end of the 200-hour test period, the saws
were returned with missing paint, cracked handles and an overall
appearance of abuse.
Saber Professional Withstands Severe Service
After the test period the saws were subjected to a detailed engine
teardown to determine how well Saber performed. As expected, the
teardown revealed that the chainsaws using AMSOIL Saber
Professional at a mix ratio of 100:1 had fewer deposits, less wear
and were generally cleaner than the saws that operated using the
manufacturer-recommended two-cycle oil mixed at 50:1. In addition,
the chainsaws with Saber installed used an average of 8%
less fuel than the saws running conventional oil at 50:1.
