To know which STIHL chainsaw you should choose, you first need to know what you are going to use it for. Will you be chopping wood in your garage, pruning shrubs in your garden, felling trees in a forest, cutting particularly hard materials? Will you use your chainsaw for a few hours or all day? All STIHL chainsaws are of high quality, but each type of chainsaw has its own advantages. Both electric and battery-powered chainsaws are quiet and low-emission, but an electric chainsaw needs to be plugged into a power outlet, while a battery-powered chainsaw has a moderate runtime. Thermal chainsaws are more powerful, but also noisier and more polluting than their counterparts. That said, STIHL innovates in technology to minimize the disadvantages of each type of chainsaw and to make its use as comfortable as possible.
