The name "STIHL" has been around for about as long as chain saws have. Andreas Stihl developed the first electric chain saw in 1926 and one of the first portable, gasolineoline-powered chain saws in 1929.
When you think of STIHL, you think of old-world care and concern - the handcrafted work of skilled artisans from times past. It is an attitude, a dedication to quality that has made STIHL power tools the most dependable on the market and one of the reasons STIHL products have earned quality awards throughout the years.
Since 1926, STIHL has specialized in the development and manufacture of a wide range of dependable portable power tools, both electric and gasoline. These include chain saws, trimmers, brushcutters, blowers, multi-task products, cut off machines, saw chains and guide bars.
Now, over 75 years later, STIHL is a world leader in the manufacturing of versatile consumer and professional chain saws and other power tools. There are many models in the STIHL line to allow homeowners, weekend woodcutters, farmers, professional loggers, landscapers, construction crews and fire departments to find the one saw that fits their needs.
