Chain Brake Inspection


STIHL Chainsaws come equipped with a STIHL Quickstop® Chain Brake designed to reduce the risk of injury in certain kickback situations. Always check your chain brake to make sure it is functioning properly and that it engages and disengages.

Watch this video tutorial for a demonstration on how to properly inspect a STIHL chainsaw chain brake. It is important to return your chainsaw to your authorized STIHL Dealer to have the chain brake inspected according to the schedule found in your Instruction Manual.
