Athletes have to prove their skills in six disciplines at the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® SERIES competitions. They include Underhand Chop, STIHL Stock Saw, Standing Block Chop, Single Buck, Springboard and Hot Saw.
Strength, endurance and the perfect handling of the axe and chainsaw decide between victory and defeat. We introduce you to the discipline STIHL Stock Saw in this article.
STIHL Stock Saw
In this discipline, all the contestants use the MS 661, a standard STIHL chainsaw from the 90+ cc class. Two cookies (discs of wood) of a certain thickness must be sawn from a tree trunk (diameter of 40 cm) in one downward cut and one upward cut. The aim is to precisely adjust the pressure and rotational speed applied to the wood. The best times in this discipline are around ten seconds.
Here you will find an overview of all of the disciplines of the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® SERIES.
