Choosing a chain saw

Choosing a chain saw

Making wood cutting easier, quicker and simply more satisfying, a quality chain saw will cut through the work in next to no time.

Does size matter?

  • Consider what you need the saw for : a 30cm guide bar can cut almost twice its length – that's a half metre diameter log.
  • You obviously need power, but not too much to control. Consider the task and seek advice. Make it safe : make it easy.
  • Check for safety features like an inertia chain brake, side chain tensioning and a chain catcher.
  • A saw that is comfortable to use is safer to use. Find a well-balanced machine with a good power-to-weight ratio: light enough to handle with the power to do the job.
  • Ease of use is another deciding factor. Is the chain saw easy to start? Are controls accessible and simple to operate?

Always seek specialist advice when choosing a chain saw. Your STIHL Approved Dealer will guide you on the most appropriate saw for your needs and supply relevant safety clothing and accessories.
