More power on the construction site with the new cut-off machines from STIHL

Tools, Brand New

The new TS 910i and TS 710i cut-off machines are the most powerful cut-off machines in the STIHL range. In close cooperation with our customer STIHL, we developed the product design of the gasoline-powered tools, taking into account the overall design strategy, the corporate design and the color brand.

TS 910i & TS 710i

The new STIHL TS 710i and TS 910i with electronic fuel injection are the most powerful cut-off saws in the STIHL range. The electronically controlled fuel injection ensures perfect running characteristics and high torque.

The design also differs significantly from the previous models. The new hood shape - without the black section familiar from its predecessors - gives the power cutter a more compact, powerful and modern appearance. The striking design language supports the machine's power and allows the hood to optimally enclose the technical components without creating unnecessary volume.

A key aspect in optimizing handling is the lowering of the entire machine. This brings the cutting wheel closer to the object to be cut, which is supported by the design with an adapted edge profile. This and the reduced machine length make it much easier for the user to plunge into the material to be cut.

A particular challenge in the design was the integration of the large ventilation openings required for the type of machine. The dynamically sloping ventilation openings characterize the appearance of the cut-off machine and convey the sheer power of the professional high-performance device.

„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."
