Product Review: Stihl Chainsaw Parts

Stihl is one of the most trusted brands of chainsaws and is used around the world and is an official sponsor of the summer Timbersports, a compilation of competitions that use chainsaws and handsaws. While this is one of the most prestigious saw companies, there can still be occasional breakdowns and parts will need to be replaced. Those high quality parts should always be replaced with parts of the same caliber. That’s why HL Supply offers a vast variety of Stihl chainsaw parts. Some of those include chainsaw spark plugs, chainsaw fuel filters, and chainsaw starter rope with handle which we will talk about in this review.

Chainsaw Spark Plug

One of the most commonly replaced items on a machine—the spark plug—is the combustion starter for your engine. By creating an electric bolt a chainsaw spark plug is able to ignite the fuel and the engine can start. You don’t want to have an engine that doesn’t start. Find the right size spark plug for your Stihl chainsaw fast and easy today at HL Supply.

Stihl Chainsaw Fuel Filter

Chainsaw Fuel filters are absolutely essential to having a strong chainsaw. All the fuel pulled into the engine is filtered through the fuel filter. If the filter is clogged from dirt and grime, the fuel has a harder time passing through and engine power is decreased. When cutting with a saw, power is precision. Make sure that your engine is at full power with a custom aftermarket Stihl chainsaw fuel filter.

Starter Rope with Handle

If your starter rope is about to break don’t wait for that day to come. Our aftermarket starter rope with handle is both strong and inexpensive. These easy to replace ropes will fit all of your Stihl saws. Have a durable starter cord that you don’t have to worry about breaking.

When you need to repair your Sithl chainsaw or cut-off saw, you have to make sure that you buy the right parts. That is why searching for your parts at HL Supply is essential. Find everything you need, including products like spark plugs, fuel filters, starter ropes, and many more.

Meteor Pistons & Cylinders: Aftermarket Parts for Stihl & Husqvarna Engines

At, we are always on the lookout for quality, aftermarket engine parts that we can offer you at a great price. Meteor Pistons are one of the aftermarket brands we carry, and they are a favorite among chainsaw and cut-off saw enthusiasts. These aftermarket parts offer quality and performance comparable to the original parts, and for a price you won’t see on genuine Stihl and Husqvarna parts. Let’s take a look at the company and how they became a leader in aftermarket parts for Stihl and Husqvarna small engines.

Meteor Pistons Overview

Meteor Piston was founded in 1952 in Italy, and the company continues to operate out of Italy. Their original focus was on scooters, including the world-renowned Italian Vespa, and the company has been focused on small engine parts ever since. The company also worked with industrial small engines around this time.

Eventually in the 70s, Meteor Pistons began making pistons for agricultural, gardening, and forestry engines. This marked the beginning of Meteor’s manufacturing of cut-off saw, brushcutter, blower, and chainsaw pistons, which are regarded today as some of the best aftermarket parts available for Stihl and Husqvarna chainsaws and cut-off saws.

At the beginning of the new millennium, Meteor Piston was an established name in piston manufacturing and began to move into cylinder manufacturing. They began offering Nikasil plated cylinders for forestry equipment.

Today, Meteor offers pistons for a wide range of engines including forestry equipment, scooters, 4-stroke small engines, ATV engines, go-karts, and more. With over 60 years of experience manufacturing pistons in a wide range of engine types, Meteor remains a trusted name in aftermarket pistons and cylinders.

HL Supply’s Wide Selection of Meteor Pistons & Cylinders

HL Supply carries a wide range of Meteor piston kits and cylinder kits. Whether you are a Stihl user or a Huqvarna user, you will find piston assembly kits for your chainsaw model. Stihl piston kits include pistons for 026, MS260, MS250, MS230, MS210, and other models. Husqvarna piston kits include Husqvarna 346XP, 55 & 55 Rancher, 357, 359, and many more.
