STIHL chain saws are the number one selling brand of chain saws worldwide. While our homeowner saws may not have quite the power as the “big boys” â€“ they do have many of the features of our professional saws built right in to maximize reliability, durability and ease of use for the occasional user.
Discover for yourself some of the features that make these gasoline-powered chain saws ideal for around-the-home use: STIHL manufactures its own saw chain for optimal performance and compatibility with your STIHL chain saw. Swiss-made STIHL OILOMATICÂ® Saw Chain is pre-stretched before it leaves the factory, which helps eliminate excessive stretching during the break-in period, reducing maintenance time and component wear.
Our Ematicâ„¢ Bar Lubrication System delivers proper lubrication while reducing oil usage by up to 50%.
The Automatic Bar and Chain Oiler allows the operator to concentrate on cutting rather than bar and chain lubrication.

STIHL chain saws feature an Anti-vibration System to help reduce operator fatigue and improve comfort.
The STIHL QuickstopÂ® Chain Brake System is designed to stop the chain in fractions of a second and can be activated manually or by inertia if the kickback force is sufficient.
The Translucent Fuel Tank allows the operator to easily check the fuel level before starting work while the Balanced Fuel and Oil Tank are designed to make sure you run out of fuel before you run out of bar oil, thus extending the life of the saw chain.
