About the logging championships

In the 1970s, a professional skills competition for forestry workers was created that tested five disciplines based on their daily work. Those are: tree felling, chain fitting, bucking by combined cuts, precision bucking and limbing.

    1. Hello Flavio,
      Thank you for your comment.
      The bar used for the discipline ‘precision bucking’ is a special series.
      It is developed for requirements of the logging championships exclusively and therefore it is only available for participants.
      Best regards,
      your STIHL team
