Portable, mechanically operated, and effective, STIHL chainsaws are ideal for applications ranging from routine tree pruning to cutting and cleaning up felled trees. Regardless of whether you are a homeowner who uses a chainsaw once in a while or a lumber professional who works with chainsaws daily, this guide can help you find the perfect STIHL chainsaw for your needs. Here are three factors that can help you choose the right STIHL chainsaw from your local tractor dealer.
STIHL categorizes its chainsaws to make it as easy as possible to navigate the choices it offers for homeowners and professionals who are in the market for new equipment. These categories include home use, ranch and farm use, and professional use. Choose from among these categories, considering the applications for which you regularly require a chainsaw and the frequency with which you expect to use one.
For decades, gas engines were the most common source of chainsaw power. Today, electric and battery operated models are available for consumers concerned with their carbon footprint. Consider how important it is for you to avoid investing in a gas-powered chainsaw if you can help it, conduct research to ensure that an electric chainsaw can help you meet your needs if it is your preference, and choose a chainsaw accordingly.
Restrictions and Special Considerations
STIHL has developed several special features to help customers find chainsaws that seem tailor-made to them. These include the Easy2Start™ chainsaw activation system and STIHL Quickstop Plus®, a safety feature that stops a chainsaw in less than one second upon detecting that an operator’s hand is no longer holding the rear handle. Noise mufflers and special handle types are also available. Choose a model that boasts features that will help you comply with neighborhood and workplace ordinances.
Identify the criteria you need to meet and shop options housed under the appropriate category, and you should be able to find a chainsaw that will meet your needs for years to come.

Springtime lawn care is about getting your grass healthy and green; summertime lawn care is about keeping it looking that way. Even though Washington is relatively cool compared to other parts of the country, summers here can bring high temperatures and minimal rainfall, which often spells disaster for lawns in the state. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to keep your lawn looking beautiful over the long, hot days of summer. Here are some top summer lawn tips, courtesy of your friends at Washington Tractor.
Know Your Lawn
In order to give your lawn the care and attention it needs to flourish, you need to know what type of grass you’re dealing with. Cool-season grasses such as fescue, bluegrass, and rye require different care than warm-season grasses such as St. Augustine and Bermuda. If you aren’t sure which type of grass you have, pick a few blades and take them to your local lawn expert.
Although you may be tempted to give your lawn a long, refreshing drink on a hot day, your lawn only needs one inch of water per week. Overwatering can be just as harmful as underwatering, which means you need to take rainfall into account when irrigating or using sprinklers on your lawn. Use a rain gauge to keep track of the amount of water your lawn receives from rainfall and irrigation.
Raise Your Mower Blades
Before you mow your lawn this summer, be sure to raise your mower blades so that your lawn is mowed at approximately three inches. Longer blades provide shade for the roots, which will help keep your lawn healthy during the warm summer months.
Washington Tractor has everything you need to keep your lawn looking its best all summer long, including the best deals on walk-behind and riding lawn mowers.
