One of the most commonly asked questions regarding outdoor power equipment is “How do I store my chain saw/grass trimmer/blower for winter?”.
Our founder, Andreas Stihl once said: “A chain saw is only as good as the service behind it.
There has been a lot of buzz in the outdoor power equipment industry lately regarding lithium-ion battery products.
As the saying goes, “a lot can change in ten years”. STIHL first joined the battery tool market in 2010 with the introduction of a battery-powered hedge trimmer, the HSA 65.
As with all STIHL products, STIHL trimmers and brushcutters are equipped with active safety devices.
STIHL produces a variety of different types of air filters for specific engines and their applications.
For years, STIHL, as an outdoor power equipment manufacturer, has been battling the ongoing challenges that come with using today’s gasoline in our handheld outdoor power equipment.
With the dog days of summer behind us and the mornings becoming bright and cooler, it’s a sure sign that fall is just around the corner.
Gasoline has been used for many years to power internal combustion engines. The fuel stores energy and the engine converts as much of this energy as it can, and turns it into rotary motion of the crankshaft.
While saw chain may look very similar, there are differences. It is important to understand what the differences are in order to answer “which chain should I choose when selecting chain for my application?
What is the best cutting attachment for my application? How do I rewind my cutting attachment and what is the proper way to trim with a STIHL machine?
