When it comes to logging, farming, land clearing, tree service and big firewood cutting jobs, professionals trust the unique features that make STIHL the number one selling brand of chain saws worldwide. And at STIHL, we have a particular fondness for our professional category chain saws. It’s where we built our reputation in the first place.
Andreas Stihl developed the first electric chain saw in 1926 and our first gasoline-powered saw in 1929. And not unlike the early automobiles of the Roaring 20’s, our chain saws’ essential components – engine, bar and chain – remain familiar, though very much advanced, elements of our original chain saw. Today, STIHL continues to put a high value on engineering and performance, we remain the only gasoline-powered chain saw company that designs and manufactures its own guide bars and saw chain to ensure optimal performance in the field.
