How STIHL Saw Chains Are Made

How STIHL Saw Chains Are Made

Good cutting performance is dependent on a high-quality saw chain. Another important factor is how the engine unit, guide bar and saw chain interact. That is why STIHL manufacturers all of its saw chains itself so we can guarantee these factors are in perfect harmony.

Tips and Tricks

The Forgotten Wedge

The Forgotten Wedge

Have you ever had your chain saw get pinched part way through a cut? Have you ever completed the back-cut on a tree you were felling and find yourself pushing the tree like an offensive lineman on the trunk to get the tree to start falling?

Rescue Your Fescue!

Rescue Your Fescue!

Because of its non-invasive nature and relative low maintenance, fescue is a popular choice of grass for lawns all across the country. However, after a long and hot summer, your fescue lawn can begin to look worn down and sparse. Luckily, the warm days and cool nights of the fall provide us with perfect weather conditions to rejuvenate our fescue lawns. Fescue requires annual reseeding since it doesn't regerminate on its own.
