Endurance testing

Before you spray away, we tested it in every way.

Endurance testing

The testing never stops
7.30am, STIHL Plant 2, Waillingen. People are arriving at work. But it's been a long night for the tools in our testing chamber. All 36 chambers run 24/7, putting each tool we sell through 150,000 hours of the toughest challenges we can create.

No excuses
Whether it's a chain saw or a mistblower, no model escapes. We take each machine then simulate typical use in three real-life situations - partial, full and idle operation. That way, we know the tool is in perfect working order and we know it'll deliver full performance even at extremes - because anything less simply isn't good enough.
