How often do you need to push the oil bulb?
Remington answered a previous question by saying you push the bulb "when needed". Is it needed after every branch? Just when you start cutting for the day? When the chain is dry? Other? Need more guidance than just "when needed". Do you push it just once "when needed"?

If you over oil, the worst thing that will happen. you will see oil drippings on the unit & ground. Trial & error. depending on how you use it..... do NOT under oil....& make the proper angle cuts. so the chain does NOT get squashed while in use.....don't forget to clean the sap after using it. spray WD-40 on the chain for storage.

Oiling depends on material being cut. With pine it needs more oil than with ash. The best method to learn your saw is to cut a few limbs and check for wet oil still in the blade. In my experience the pine required constant oiling, but the ash, walnut and elm trees took less. Cutting pine or fir trees uses a lot of oil because the tree has heavy sap and absorbs oil. Ash and similar harder woods don't.

I pushed the oil bulb around every 10 minutes. better to be safe than sorry.
