Our cordless power system offers you a full charge of STIHL. The quiet, exhaustfree, mobile power packs allow full freedom while carrying out gardening work, grounds maintenance or DIY projects, and are particularly long-lasting thanks to state-of-the-art battery technology. The STIHL battery in various capacities fits into every cordless tool in our range, and can be recharged in no time at all using our powerful battery chargers.

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.

From an idea to a saw – Part 3: Marketing and sales

A saw’s road to the market starts long before it goes into production. Our product managers have an open ear for users’ needs around the world. The first thing we do is define the product: What should we develop, and for whom? With what features? For which markets? We talk to the people at the source and define the general conditions. How much should the saw cost? How many can we sell? The answers to these questions form the basis for the development of a new product. The MS 150 was intended to be the lightest petrol chain saw on the market.

From an idea to a saw – Part 2: Manufacturing

Last week, we reported about the development of the STIHL MS 150. Now our journey continues. Today we’ll show you how we manufacture a chain saw at our plant. Most of the individual components the chain saw is made of come from STIHL plants around the world. The key components of the MS 150 – crankshaft, crankcase, piston, cylinder and engine housing – are made in house. Take a look behind the scenes.
