STIHL is the number one selling petrol chainsaw brand in the world. Why? Because they prove themselves day after day, year after year. In fact, STIHL has been proving itself since 1923, when we invented the first powered chainsaw.
Since then STIHL has been the name that professionals and homeowners have turned to consistently. Whether working deep in a forest, in a park, landscaping, contracting or in your own garden, a STIHL chainsaw won’t let you down.
There’s something about German design and engineering. Quality is always the number one consideration: quality in design, for ease of use and quality in construction, for longevity.
When you buy a STIHL chainsaw, you’re also buying ongoing support and commitment from the most experienced outdoor power equipment network in the world. In Australia, there’s more than 600 dealers nationwide, all qualified to make sure you choose the chainsaw that’s right for your requirements, to instruct you in the finer points of its operation and to set it up so that it’s raring to go to work. And of course, your local STIHL dealer will help maintain your chainsaw in optimum working condition, ensuring maximum working efficiency and the sort of legendary longevity that sees STIHL chainsaws passed down from generation to generation.
With an extensive range of powerful chainsaws, from lightweight all rounders, to powerful workhorses, there’s a STIHL chainsaw for every job including the new and most advanced chainsaw in the world; the MS 500i. With electronic fuel injection and the best power to weight ratio on the market, its cutting power is nothing short of extraordinary.
Every STIHL chainsaw combines STIHL’s legendary reliability with world-leading technology and operator comfort. That is why a STIHL chainsaw is an investment that will make your life easier for many years to come.
How to Sharpen Your Chainsaw Chain
A dull chainsaw chain is the last thing you want when you’re about to get to work. At its worst, it can be downright dangerous, making your saw more prone to kickback. But even if this doesn’t happen, it will still affect the performance of your chainsaw. Your saw will not be working efficiently – it will use more power for less results and will cause wear and tear on other parts of the saw. Watch our video to find out just how easy it is to keep your chain sharp at home with the 2-in-1 file.
Keep your eyes peeled for the following signs of a dull chain:
- The chainsaw chain does not pull itself into the wood. If you have to apply pressure to the saw to force it through the wood, the chain is almost certainly not sharp enough.
- When cross cutting (against the grain of the wood) a dull chainsaw chain creates fine sawdust instead of coarse strands.
- The saw is producing smoke even when your chain is oiled and the chain tension is correct.
- The chainsaw produces an uneven cut. This could mean that your chain has dull cutting teeth on one side. Alternatively, your cutting teeth could be uneven in length.
