If you want to surprise your family and friends to mark a special occasion, why not give them something you made with your own hands? Maybe a custom wood ornament you made with your chain saw would be just the thing? In recent years, carving has gone from a way for professional woodworkers to pass the time on rainy days to a popular hobby for all.

“Made by STIHL” is a brand promise – no matter the location of production. So STIHL and China have been a very successful combination for many years.

Production processes, quality standards, occupational health and safety standards, and environmental standards at STIHL are equally high all over the world.

Giving your best in your day-to-day work you surely should receive the best possible support from your tools. This is why STIHL invented M-Tronic: An innovative system that makes a lot of things possible – even leaving off work early.
