Saw chain testing

You can perfect your skills because we´ve perfected the cutting characteristics.

Saw chain testing

Test, test and test again
Watch our cutting robots at work on our chainsaw testing bench and it's hard not to be impressed. After all, it's here that the cutting performance of our in-house chainsaws is put under the spotlight in the toughest, real life conditions.

Real life testing for real life performance
When we say real life, we mean real life. For instance, we moisten the wood in a special sprinkler system to reflect moisture in a freshly felled tree before any chainsaws are tested. And tree trunks are kept moist to simulate real-life cutting conditions as closely as possible.

The best they can possibly be
This rigorous testing process is all about comparing real performance with our own high development standards, especially when it comes to cutting wood and the chain speed on the test rack. The results are invaluable -and help STIHL chainsaws to be the best they can possibly be.
