What you need for good cutting performance is a high-quality saw chain. Customary Swiss precision ensures that the saw chains are produced to the highest quality standards. A number of processes have to be carried out before a saw chain is ready for action. We took a look at how a saw chain is made, from the raw materials right through to the finished product.
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.
