Testimonials: Chainsaws

Brian B.


I had just purchased a new bar & chain for my 044 STIHL chainsaw. Just as I had started cutting wood, it started to rain. I didn't wanna stop cutting because I had just got underway, and I saw blue clouds coming behind the rain clouds. As the rain was passing through, the sun came out and a rainbow formed. My fiance happened to capture me cutting wood while the rainbow was overhead.

Even though this is an older saw, it still has the bragging rights on the farm.

Thanks again for a great product,
Brian B.

To whom this may concern:

My Name is Jesse. I am a young artist (21 years old) from Bethel Connecticut. I go to Art school in Hartford Connecticut. I'm a fan of your tools and company. My father and I have been using one of your chainsaws for quite sometime now, a very well made machine.

Anyway, I'm writing to you to inform/show you one of my latest art pieces. Below are two links to images to my piece "Stay Stihl!" that I fabricated entirely out of clay, and painted. It was my pleasure creating this Concrete Saw with the STIHL colors and inspiration entirely from scratch. I made it for a ceramics class up in Hartford CT.

It is no specific model from your company, but it looks just like one of your older saws and I had a challenging and hard time doing it!

Thank you for your time.

I have been a STIHL fan for some time now and own a few of your products. I had the pleasure of having a son about 3 weeks ago. I had him out in my garage with me the other day and my wife came out with the camera. I got a few pictures of him sitting in my STIHL chainsaw case (new one) with my two STIHL chainsaws next to him.

I just bought your MS460 today and its hands down the best chainsaw I have ever used or owned. This replaced my dad's old 036. Thanks for all your hard work and commitment to outstanding work.

I just wanted to send a note to let you know how impressed I was with the purchase of my first STIHL Chainsaw (model270). I asked my friends and co-workers as to which brand I should buy and they all said STIHL. I went to a local dealer (Pro Power Equipment, located on South May Ave, Oklahoma City, OK) and I was in luck, a STIHL company rep happened to be there that day. Your rep and the salesman carefully listened to my needs and then discussed several options as to which chainsaw best met my needs now and in the future. After selection they took the time to ensure I knew and understood all the safety features and how to break-in and maintain the saw properly. Before I left the store the people of Pro Power took my new chainsaw into the back and gave it a final check. Overall I was very impressed by the knowledge and the time they took with me. It was great not having high-pressure salesman trying to oversell me. If this is the kind of service I can expect, I will be replacing my other power equipment with STIHL.

I have a STIHL 025 chainsaw. It has been sitting in a storage building for 2 or more years. My wife wanted two trees cut down. I had been putting it off because every time I use a gas powered piece of equipment I spend most of my time working to get the "equipment" running. I decided to cut the trees down, so I went to the storage building, reached up on the shelf, and retrieved the orange storage case. I opened the case, took the chainsaw out, and thought, "I wonder what tools are going to be required to get this chainsaw running?" I removed the gas from the tank, and added some new gas, thinking this is an easy place to start my adventure in getting the chainsaw running. I then added some chain and bar lube and decided to give it a couple of pulls. Saying now I can eliminate those, let's see if I can tell what else I may need to get this chainsaw going. To my surprise it started right up and ran as smooth as the day I bought it. I got the job done. I know this is not the recommended care for chainsaws, but I believe if this had been a lower quality chainsaw I would probably still be trying to get it running.This is just a letter to commend STIHL on making quality and reliable products.

I'm writing you to let you know how pleased I am with my new STIHL chainsaw. I just purchase a new MS 361 chainsaw from the local STIHL Dealer in Wichita, KS and I used it the next day for about 6 hours. The saw ran great and it met all my expectations. I'm not a professional cutter but I cut all of my own firewood. The wood I cut is mostly hedge (Osage orange) and it is a very hard wood. In short the STIHL chainsaw is great. And keep up all the good work.

Jeremy, H. - Madisonville, KY

I am a long time customer and I just recently had to buy a new STIHL chainsaw after my old one was dropped out of a 100 foot tree. This is the first time I have ever had to replace a chainsaw. My old one had previously been dropped from 75 feet, but worked fine for another 10 years! It was a STIHL 460 chainsaw. Thank you for making a wonderful product. I will continue to be a lifelong customer.

P.S. If you can make them stand 100 foot drop that would be greatly appreciated.
