In-house development expertise: As one of the largest manufacturers of handheld power tools, STIHL is an expert
when it comes to small engines. It therefore makes sense for STIHL to develop the operating fluids for its machines in-house.
Well equipped: STIHL employs over 500 people in a stateof-the-art development centre with its own laboratory.
Specialist expertise is not enough on its own: At STIHL,chemists, engineers and users work closely together to
get the very best out of the engines.
QUALITY PUT TO THE TEST
Ready for a test of strength: Any manufacturer hoping to deliver flawless quality needs to subject its products to
stringent testing. STIHL machines and operating fluids undergo comprehensive endurance tests before they appear on the market.
STIHL equipment and operating fluids are subjected to thorough functional and endurance testing at over 100
test stations – in some cases continually, right around the clock.
All of the test results are directly incorporated into further product development. STIHL continues to refine the
products until optimum quality is achieved.
AN OUTSTANDING RESULT
Triple checked for better operation: Chemical, mechanical and practical – this is the basis on which STIHL operating fluids are
developed, tested and optimally adapted to STIHL equipment. The result: total satisfaction on every level.
Health: Low-emission burning and fumes mean the products are not harmful to use.
Performance: Excellent engine power with minimal wear and significantly less maintenance.
Environment: Biodegradable and with a low level of harmful substances in the exhaust fumes, thus benefitting the climate.
