Endurance testing

Before you spray away, we tested it in every way.

Endurance testing

Tools never sleep
When you enter STIHL plant 2 in Waiblingen at 7.30am, you'll come across some of our early-risers who are already going about their day-to-day work. But, for the STIHL tools in our testing chambers, it's been a long night. A total of 36 state-of-the-art testing chambers with fuel injection and exhaust systems are on the go 24/7 for the purpose of endurance testing. All of our tools spend around 150,000 hours a year here. Switching them off is not an option; otherwise the test would have to be started from scratch.

No exceptions
From chain saws and hedge trimmers to mistblowers, each model in our product range is given a meticulous testing plan. The testing procedures are managed by our specially developedtesting programme. The software simulates typical use in real-life situations: Partial operation, full operation and idle operation. This tells us whether the tool is in proper working order and can also deliver full performance during continuous operation. After all, the tools must offer absolute reliability and make it easier for you to work.
