More than 500 employees work in the cutting-edge STIHL development centre with its in-house laboratory. Engineers and chemists work to harmonise STIHL fuels and lubricants with equipment to get the best out of them.
STIHL fuels and lubricants and equipment undergo extensive functional and endurance testing at over 100 test stations and machines can only make it to the market once they have passed this extreme strength testing.
In field tests, lubricants, fuels and equipment are tested under a range of different
operating conditions as no climate is the same.
