You've got it easy because we've been working hard.
Weigh less, enjoy more
When you've been hoisting your hedge trimmer or chainsaw around for a while, your arms will soon tell you that a lighter machine is worth it's weight in gold. That's why cutting tool weight is one of our big priorities. And that's why we've turned to a material that's not just very, very light, but very, very strong - magnesium.
Lightening the load across the range
It's a fact that magnesium is around 1/3 lighter than aluminium. It can also be worked extremely precisely - making it perfect for handheld tools. Using a special diecast manufacturing method, we produce all kinds of magnesium alloy components for a range of STIHL machines, especially those with petrol engines. That should lighten the load.
