Stihl serial numbers

140106838
264556052


Serial Numbers

The 1 at the beginning of the serial number indicates the unit was
manufactured in Germany

A 2 and 5 would indicate the unit was manufactured in the United States

A 3 represents Brazil

An 8 represents China

SG 20 hand operated sprayers start with a 9

The IPL may start a serial number reference with an X meaning to
disregard the first number.

Sometimes when looking up parts for an older unit, such as this 028 chain saw, a serial number will be referenced. If the reference starts with an X this means to disregard the first number of the serial number where it is stamped on the unit.


There may be a small x or a star stamped next to the serial number. These symbols indicate that the crankcase passed a vacuum/pressure test or some other inspection during the assembly process of the unit.

StihlDan  - circled x's can sometimes indicate that the unit had either in factory updates done during the assembly process, or that it failed in a small part of it's in house test and then had "rework" done to it.
I'll try to get a real official answer in a week or so. My connection at STIHL is on vacation.
