As mentioned, when you are thinking about purchasing a chainsaw, one of the best brands to buy from is Stihl. Stihl has been manufacturing chainsaws for about the last 70 years. The company specializes in making a wide variety of portable power tools that are both gasoline and electric. In 1926, Andreas Stihl developed the first electric chainsaw. Stihl’s chainsaw made the lives of many farmers and woodcutters much easier.
Over the many years that Stihl has been making chainsaws many changes have been done. A reduction in weight and an increased in operating efficiency is a major reason why the chainsaw is no longer restricted to just woodcutting industry. Since it has been engineered so differently its weight to power-chain ratio is one of the best in the industry. Some features that have been added to the newer model chainsaws are anti-vibration system, the Easy2start system, and improved shock absorption has made the chainsaw so versatile.
The Easy2start system makes starting the world’s most dangerous power tool an effortless exercise. Stihl Chainsaws cut through the toughest wood and are surprising shipped to over 140 countries mainly for this reason alone. Most experts will personally recommend buying a Stihl as it is one of the most respected chainsaws in the world. Stihl chainsaws are known for their longevity of use even thought the key component of a long life is properly using and maintaining the chainsaw. So if you are going to buy a chainsaw, one of the best ones in the market that is not hard on your wallet has to be Stihl.
A few comments from our visitors:
bull s#$@ i had a new stihl ms 280 i cut 4 cord with the junk and the oiler broke. the handle broke and the brake broke. they charge me 23.59 for a tear down fee. gave it back with the parts in a bag. . i told them what was wrong, there was no need to tear it apart. i just wanted a price to fix the oiler. also i wanted them to call stihl to fix the handel and brake. they did not so i did and stihl said for me to eat it.at stihls prices it will cost me 100.00 per cord.
i use 4 cord a year. it would be cheaper to buy 2 cheep chain saws and have money left over for gas and oil and get 20 cords. it is stupid to buy a name like stihl to let someone see. that i have a stihl!!! big deal. This design is very Poor ,quality is low, very low standard, end result piece of junk “THE STUPID NEITHER FORGIVE NOR FORGET ‘’ stihl said that is how they stay in business. what did he mean by that they make junk to sale more. i do not think so..
