Chain saw safety

Your safety when using and handling a chain saw is a major aspect of our daily development work. Your STIHL chain saw is fitted with specially developed safety features. In addition to that, it is essential for you to wear the personal protective equipment indicated below whenever you use a chain saw.

But before you get started, please be aware that personal protective clothing and appropriate accessories are no substitute for a careful, safe way of working.
So: Please read the Instruction Manual first before you start sawing!


STIHL offers a broad range of personal protective equipment. Please see your local STIHL representative.
