Regardless whether you’re building with wood, sawing firewood, moving the lawn, trimming lawn edges, cutting bushes or getting rid of dirt, sweepings or leaves, cordless power tools from STIHL make light work of all sorts of gardening jobs. The tools offer functional design, outstanding ergonomics and powerful engine performance.
Whether it’s a chain saw, hedge trimmer or a blower, STIHL puts all tools to a thorough test. Cars have to prove their safety in crash tests before they leave the factory, and the same applies for STIHL products. From time to time, we let our tools take a real hit to see what happens when they do. These drop tests − whether simulated or real − help us to design our components even better.
Tensioning the saw chain is very easy with the STIHL chain quick tensioning system. The saw chain can be tensioned quickly and effortlessly by means of the thumb wheel, without using tools. Just undo the screw on the sprocket cover, tension the chain and tighten the cover again. STIHL chain saws with chain quick tensioning are indicated by the letter “B” in the model name.
Alongside engine units, STIHL develops its own saw chains and guide bars. This means that the three components are always guaranteed to match each other perfectly which is necessary for top cutting performance and exemplary functional safety.
The weight of the saw is also crucial to ensuring that it is comfortable and convenient to use. This is why STIHL constantly strives to make individual components in the chain saw lighter, including the guide bars.
No matter if you’re just starting up, working away or restarting your chain saw after a break, M-Tronic takes perfect control of ignition timing and fuel dosage whatever the operating status, and with electronic precision. Find out more about M-Tronic technology and the details that make sure you always benefit from optimum engine performance.

Successful products are often copied illegally. As a result, product and brand piracy are an issue for STIHL, too. Consumers often end up paying a high price for what they think is a great deal. That’s because the low price for counterfeit saws also means poor durability, poor performance and, most of all, poor safety. However, not all fakes are cheap to buy. In many cases, they are only slightly less expensive than the originals in order to make people believe they are buying real STIHL products.
