Born in the forest, Raised by loggers
In a land covered almost entirely by forest, and where the average temperature is 6°C, your chainsaw needs to deliver beyond the usual. Luckily, producing remarkably durable tools is a vital part of the Swedish heritage – just like the eternal quest for technological advancement.
When one of the world’s most innovative chainsaws was born, it was a successful combination of the two. It happened in a small industrial village called Jonsered, north of just about everything and surrounded by dense forest – but renowned for its strong engineering spirit.
At that time, Nordic lumberjacks were rugged men who lived and worked under very tough conditions. Making their toil a little bit easier became a mission for the Jonsered engineers, who soon found themselves on the front line of chainsaw development. Chain brake, anti-vibration and the turbo air cleaning system were among the many innovations introduced by Jonsered.
Our long experience in efficient engines and ergonomics, along with a genuine love for nature, form the basis for today’s product range. Jonsered’s legacy and pioneering spirit lives on, in the garden as well as in the forest.
