      Hello.

      To avoid using mineral oil in the garden, i substitute vegetable oil
      as lubricant. Works well at first, but after some (not too long) time
      it gets hard and needs to be reoiled. I think i tried olive oil and
      peanut oil. What type of oil is recomended for this use? Or could the
      vegetable oil be processed in some way to make it beter fit (and still
      be harmless to environment)?


      Greetings,
      Maarten

        Using vegetable oil as lubricant in gardening.

        Rapeseed (Koolzaadolie) oil cost only €1 per liter, in Flanders – Belgium and is perfect for chainsaw lubrication.

        Makita sells a kind of this as very nature friendly for about €9 per liter.

        These are my experiences.
