Know Your STIHL Trimmer Line




We put a lot of pride and precision engineering into our STIHL trimmers. But did you know that we also manufacture our own trimmer line?

In fact, all STIHL trimmer line is made with pride in America at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Virginia Beach, VA. With a custom blend of polymers, STIHL produces six types of trimmer line, each designed for a different type of cutting application. Why six types? Because not all cutting jobs are the same - we make different diameters and shapes of cutting line to accommodate the wide range of cutting scenarios you might find in your landscape.
