Before you start your STIHL Chainsaw, it is important that you fully understand your Instruction Manual, which covers the important items that are specific to your chainsaw’s design, features and operation.

Watch this video for a demonstration on how to properly start and stop a STIHL chainsaw. Wearing the proper STIHL Chainsaw Protective Apparel, you too will be ready to start up your own chainsaw after watching our complete How-To Series on chainsaw safety, operation and maintenance.
