Dependable chainsaws for cutting tasks around the home
If you’re looking to choose a chainsaw for work around your home, you’ve come to the right place. For one, it’s hard to imagine a better selection of chainsaws than STIHL. What’s more, many of our chainsaws are German-engineered and built in America.* To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, B = Quick Chain Adjuster, E = Easy2Start™, and Q = an additional chain braking feature.
You may be surprised to learn that you can own STIHL quality for less than you think. STIHL chainsaws, even those designed for occasional use around the home, come with anti-vibration technology, our STIHL Quickstop® Chain Brake and a Master Control Lever™, making start-up easy.

STIHL Easy2Start™ (E)
The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products easier. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.
IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the air/fuel ratio when the air filter becomes restricted or partially clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM. IntelliCarb™ uses air from the clean side of the air filter to control the diaphragm and flow of fuel. As the air filter becomes dirty and less air is available for the carburetor, the IntelliCarb™ system adjusts the fuel flow to compensate for the decrease in air flow. This is in contrast to typical carburetors that utilize this air from the “dirty” side of the air box.
Quick Chain Adjuster (QCA) (B)
The Quick Chain Adjuster (QCA) (B) allows the user to adjust the tension of the chain without the use of tools. This allows for easy chain adjustment.
Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers
Simply lift the lever and twist the caps to remove or tighten. There‘s no need to use a tool to tighten or loosen.
The Winter/Summer Shutter allows the carburetor to operate at optimum temperature year-round and helps to prevent carburetor icing when working below 50°F (10°C).
