Chainsaw in the forest

STIHL product family - Powerful top products

Tools, Consumer goods


Chainsaws from STIHL have been among the top products in the industry for decades. Professional forestry workers value them for their optimum handling, sophisticated technical function and durability. STIHL is now expanding its range with the first cordless chainsaw, the STIHL MSA 160 C-BQ. The combination of new engine and battery technology, proven function and ergonomics forms the basis for the STIHL MSA 160 C-BQ also occupying a leading position. In practice, the power pack impresses with first-class cutting performance and high efficiency.

As with all STIHL cordless tools, the 36V lithium-ion battery, which can also be used in other STIHL tools, ensures that the tool remains ready to work for a long time. Classic areas of application are gardening, grounds maintenance or sawing work in enclosed spaces.

The battery is positioned in such a way that balance is always guaranteed when sawing. The user will find all operating elements in the usual place. In terms of design, the new little star fits seamlessly into the appearance of the STIHL brand: The design conveys value, dynamism and power. Typical STIHL!

Like the other models in the cordless product family, the new STIHL FSA 65 cordless brushcutter also stands for high utility. Its outstanding cordless mowing performance guarantees mobile, quiet and powerful work. The handy and easy-to-use device is ideal for trimming work in residential areas, parks and public facilities.

Because the motor is positioned centrally above the mowing head, the cordless motor scythe achieves a high level of efficiency. The slim, elongated shape of the product is ergonomically designed and particularly supports dynamic handling.

In close cooperation with STIHL and in accordance with the brand's corporate design, the BUSSE designers and CAD engineers have designed the FSA 65 cordless motor scythe in such a way that its inner values are apparent to the user at first glance. The best prerequisite for a product that claims to be a market leader!

„Child seats are not only visually complex but also technically demanding. Our longstanding partnership with BUSSE turns development into a creative experience. Design sprints and a versatile selection matrix relieve engineers, minimize time-consuming iterations. We appreciate BUSSE for their timely implementations despite limited resources. The collaboration is not only effective but also truly enjoyable!"



"We were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and technical creativity of the Busse employees. The atmosphere in the project was characterized by professional looseness and great agility. We turned an idea into a finished product in 4 months!"



„We discovered BUSSE Design+Engineering through online research. Contacting them for a functional model led to a contract for a technical redesign. Due to our concept changes, Redesign II was initiated and realized in a prototype, earning a golden award at the 2019 Ambiente trade fair. BUSSE executed the project with precision, on schedule, and with excellent craftsmanship. We look forward to future collaboration with BUSSE."



„The collaboration with the entire project team was always goal-oriented, constructive and pleasant in terms of communication. Mr. Timm and his project team always kept the functional and safety requirements in mind and understood what is also important to us in product development: can-do mentality, agile mindset as well as flexibility and efficiency in all project situations."
