For almost a century, STIHL has been the leading manufacturer of professional-grade chainsaws for use around the world. But how did it all start? We’ve covered this topic in a previous blog post, but today we’re going to dive deeper into the history of Stihl’s first chainsaw and how it helped shape the company that we know today. So grab a cup of coffee (or tea), sit back, and enjoy our brief history lesson!
1926 the motor saw type 01 was introduced.
In 1926, the motor saw type 01 was introduced. The motor saw type 01 was the first STIHL chainsaw and it was introduced by a company called STIHL.
It was the first STIHL chainsaw and set the standard in quality and reliability.
STIHL was founded in 1926 by Alois Stihl. A lifetime of experience as a carpenter, combined with the development of a special chain saw blade, set him on the path to create his own tool company. From the very beginning, STIHL has been committed to providing customers with high-quality tools and equipment that have stood the test of time. Today they are still doing just that!
The new model was a lightweight, hand-held chainsaw, weighing only 21kg.
The new model was a lightweight, hand-held chainsaw, weighing only 21kg. This made it easy to use when cutting trees in the forest. It also had a powerful 0.75kW engine that could be used for other jobs around the home such as pruning branches from trees and clearing overgrown grass areas. The saw was designed so that you could hold it comfortably with one hand while operating the safety lever with your thumb on your other hand.
The company’s first self-designed products-the mist blower, axial flow fan and high-pressure cleaner – were introduced in 1953.
The company’s first self-designed products-the mist blower, axial flow fan and high-pressure cleaner – were introduced in 1953. The mist blower was the world’s first handheld gas-driven appliance for use on agricultural machinery. The axial flow fan was the first electric fan with a motor designed to run at 143,000 rpm and powered by an induction generator.
The company’s very first product, which started it all off back in 1926, was called “Stihl” (a derivation of its founder’s last name). This early version of what we know today as chainsaws didn’t have a proper name yet because it looked completely different than what we think of when we hear “chainsaws.”
A milestone was reached when the STIHL trademark was registered in 1958.
The STIHL trademark was registered in 1958, and it has been a symbol of quality, trust and reliability ever since. It is the brand’s most important asset and enables us to guarantee that our products are manufactured by us or by one of our official partners. The trademark also shows that we can be trusted when designing new models or developing accessories.
STIHL stands for innovation: In addition to its own developments, it constantly finds ways to adapt other manufacturers’ innovations so they meet our high standards (e.g., using an engine from another manufacturer). Our company has even developed entire product lines on its own—from the first chainsaw with a centrifugal clutch (1957) through the first telescopic handlebars (1962) right up until today’s GPS-equipped saws with Bluetooth®, which help you find your way around even if you’re lost!
The 019T is introduced in 1961 and is intended for use with a backpack power unit (type 020).
The first Sägebock (backpack power unit) is introduced in 1961, and it is intended for use with the 019T. The 020 features an electric starter that can be activated by a push-button on the device.
The 024, 026, 029, and 034 are introduced in the 1970s.
Stihl’s 024, 026, 029 and 034 chainsaws are introduced in the 1970s.
These new models replace the older MS 180, MS 181, and MS 190. The new models have a larger engine capacity and a more powerful cutting performance. The power output has increased from 4 kW to 5 kW for the MS 180/190 to 6.5 kW for the newer models.
In the 1980s, electronic ignition and an anti-vibration system are added to STIHL’s saws.
In the ’80s, STIHL’s saws gain electronic ignition and an anti-vibration system. The first model to receive these features is the 019T. This saw was marketed as a lightweight chainsaw for homeowners that wanted to cut firewood but didn’t want to deal with messy gasoline or gasoline fumes. It has a lower weight than other chain saws of its time, weighs just over 7 pounds (3 kg), making it easy to handle and operate by hand without needing a stump or heavy machinery.
The 024 follows in 1989; this model is made specifically for professionals who need power tools at their jobsites. It has more power than other models on the market at this time: 24 cc’s per stroke instead of 18 cc’s per stroke like some other brands offer at that time period!
Another big year for STIHL came in 1997 when they released their 029 series of chainsaws–the first one being designated “000” because it had no bar length listed on its packaging label; but if you look closely enough you’ll see that it does indeed have an 18″ bar length which makes sense considering it comes from the same company who made those first two models mentioned above.”
