You're on top of the harvest because we keep down the vibration levels.
Making the job easier
At STIHL, our vision is to make it easier for people to work with nature and in natural surroundings. That's why we offer clearing saws, hedge trimmers, blowers and many other tools – besides chain saws – for a wide variety of different vegetation. For example, in some of the world's warmer countries, people have to work extremely hard when harvesting olives.
Shaken, not stirred
A day in the olive grove is a day of hard graft. The nets have to be laid out before the olives are shaken down from the tree. We develop special tools to make these jobs easier, such as our olive harvester. This tool transfers vibrations to the tree in order to shake down the olives. Best of all: the olive farmer hardly notices the vibrations at all, as we have achieved a perfect balance of rotating bodies with the help of our vibration analyses. This is particularly effective with tools whose whole purpose is to vibrate. The vibrations should impact the user as little as possible; after all, the job is hard enough as it is.
