Weighing the options: STIHL guide bars

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.

Cast-in-one: The STIHL magnesium diecasting plant

Components made from magnesium alloys have always played a vital part in many STIHL chain saws and power tools. To ensure high quality standards in the long term, STIHL opened a magnesium diecasting plant in 1971. It was not long before leading manufacturers in the automotive and electrical engineering industries also came to rely on diecast precision “made by STIHL”. Today the plant in Prüm-Weinsheim, located in Germany’s Eifel region and the employer of around 600 highly motivated men and women, is one of Europe’s largest and most modern magnesium diecasting plants.

Watch out for fakes!

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.
