Custom Chainsaw Services

If you're looking for a powerful, high performance custom chainsaw, you're in the right place. Timberland Supply ships our famous modified chainsaws to anywhere in Canada, the U.S., and Europe. We can modify your brand new chainsaw, or you can purchase a new saw from us and have it customized.

Also, due to the overwhelming demand from our customers to Bakerize their existing saws, we have decided to once again work on non-new saws. Please read the policy below on "Bakerizing Non-New Saws" carefully. You must contact us and get approval prior to bringing or shipping us your saw.

On this page you'll find all the information you need about our "Bakerized" and "Timbertuned" chainsaw performance upgrades, including pricing info, frequently asked questions, video demos, and more.

About Our Custom Chainsaws

The performance enhancing chain saw Bakerization mods were developed by Timberland in order to meet the demand for a ruggedized customization that improves horsepower and cutting speed, while significantly reducing friction-based power loss.

Simply put, a Bakerized chainsaw is a smoother, more powerful, cooler running, longer lasting wood chip churning machine that allows you to complete your work more quickly and efficiently.

If you opt for a custom Chainsaw, just remember it will only be as good as your Product Support Team & You. I cannot heap enough praise upon Dan, Grant, & Adam of TimberlandSupply.ca in Edmonton, AB. Absolute consummate professionals. I most-highly recommend this firm for the very reason that this is the single-best customer service that I have ever received in my lifetime of 65-years!!!“–Gerald Higgs (Click here to read more)

Your customized chainsaw will be one-of-a-kind.

All chainsaws that go through our Bakerization process leave our shop with a uniquely serialized dog tag clearly identifying it as “Bakerized”.  This dog tag indicates that your high performance chainsaw has been significantly improved and is now built to outperform and outlast other modified and non-modified chainsaws.

All our Bakerization mods are performed and/or overseen by Adam “Bakerized” Baker. Adam is a highly skilled technician with years of customization and repair experience.

Our Chainsaw Customization Process

We start the Bakerization by disassembling the entire engine right down to the bare crankcase. We then perform some or all of the following modifications, depending entirely upon your preferences and the exact make and model of your saw:

  • Replace steel crank bearings with custom ceramic bearings
  • Plane the cylinder to reduce cylinder height
  • Port and polish intake and exhaust
  • Install custom-built Timberland high-performance piston and rings
  • Modify muffler
  • Modify air intake
  • Replace bar, chain and sprocket
  • Apply ceramic and heat dissipating coatings, custom graphics and other modifications based on customer preference

The completed Bakerization process results in a much more powerful saw, with the following enhancements:

  • Significantly reduced rolling friction loss
  • Less vibration
  • Faster cutting
  • Less time to full RPM
  • Less heat generation due to friction
  • Longer lasting
  • Lighter weight

And if you have taken advantage of our Thermal and Heat Dissipating Coating options, you can generate even more power by further enhancing the thermodynamic and volumetric efficiency of your Bakerized saw.

You don’t need to just take our word for it. We know that our Bakerized saws are better and we invite you to come in and try one out for yourself! Visit our store and we’ll let you try a Bakerized saw and compare it to the same model of stock saw. You will see, hear, and feel the difference.

But be warned – after experiencing the difference, you won’t be satisfied with your stock saw.  Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Chainsaw Customization FAQs

Here are answers to some of the questions we commonly get about our chainsaw customization services.

I want to get a brand new Bakerized saw from you. How long does it take and what’s the process?

We have some models ready to go today but we also build them as they are ordered. If we need to build them it is usually 10-15 business days. We will work evenings and weekends if you absolutely need it sooner.

We take a deposit before we start the build and final payment once the saw is ready to ship. We prefer electronic funds transfer but we can accommodate credit card payment in many instances. Conditions apply.

Which are the best saws to Bakerize?

Most professional saws manufactured by either STIHL or Husqvarna are well-suited for this performance upgrade. Other professional saws from brands such as Echo, Jonsered and Sachs Dolmar are also candidates.     

I have an older saw that I want to Bakerize. It’s been a great saw and it runs pretty good. Can you Bakerize it?

Due to the overwhelming demand from our customers to Bakerize their existing saws, we have decided to once again work on non-new saws. Please read the policy below on “Bakerizing Non-New Saws” carefully. You must contact us and get approval prior to bringing or shipping us your saw.

Can I ship my saw to you for customization?

Yes, you may ship a new and unused saw. You must contact us and get approval prior to shipping us your used saw.

What is the return policy for Bakerized saws?

We stand behind all our products. If the customer is not satisfied with their Bakerized products, they may return them to us for a full refund less S&H fees (15% of the original invoice). As per warranty returns, customer pays shipping to Timberland. Any returned Bakerized products must be undamaged, clean, with fuel and oil drained and in the original shipping container or similar shipping container.

Who would benefit the most from having a chainsaw Bakerized?

Fallers, Buckers, Arborists and anyone who demands extra performance to get the job done faster and with less effort, will all benefit from one of our Bakerizations.

I am on a tight budget and I don’t have or need a professional saw. What are my options if I want extra performance from a homeowner/contractor type of saw?

We have a performance modifications available for some of the most popular non-professional STIHL saws. These are designed for homeowners, farmers, ranchers and even for the saw you throw on the back of the Quad. Our TimberTuned process can be applied to the MS170, MS211, MS271 and the MS291. Great performance increases at a very reasonable price. Check out the TimberTuned price list.

Bakerizing Non-New Saws

Most of us have an “Old Faithful” favourite saw (or 3) that has served us well and we have grown to truly appreciate. That old adage “they don’t make them like they used to” is true – they don’t. The reality is that much of the new technology is superior, but it doesn’t have the same feel and it’s not what we are used to. So, if you really want us to put some new life into your favourite saw, we will do our best to make that happen. However, there are some things you need to be aware of if you want us to upgrade “Old Faithful”:

  1. You need to contact us first and let us know what you have. If we feel it’s a saw that we can work with, we will have you send us your saw. You will be responsible for draining all the fuel and oil then properly packaging and shipping your saw to us.
  2. Shipping can be expensive and return shipping can add $200+ to your cost.
  3. We will take video and photos of your saw when we receive it. There are always several unknowns when we are working on any non-new saw. Even though you feel that your saw is running fine, we won’t really know how good a candidate it is until we test run it and then pull the engine apart. We will video and take photos of this too. Your saw must be in proper running condition before we begin any performance modifications. This means that all the major components including carb, ignition, clutch and starter are working just as they should.
  4. Any non-new saw will have wear on both the piston and the cylinder. As a key part of our performance mod is the extensive work that we do to the piston and cylinder, these components need to be in great shape before we can upgrade them.
  5. If we need to repair any of these systems or replace any major components before we start a performance upgrade, we will send you a link to the video as well as a quote for the necessary repairs. You will need to approve the quote before we proceed.
  6. It’s your money and we understand that you’ve worked hard for it and we want to give you something you are happy with. If you start adding up new jugs and pistons, carbs, sprockets, etc., it can potentially get very pricey. We know you love your old saw and we will do our best to get it how you want it. But please be aware that you may have been able to get a brand new Bakerized saw delivered to your front door for about the same money.

All our work is covered by our 30-day warranty which applies to any system we have worked on and any new parts that we have installed. Customer is responsible for all costs associated with shipping to Timberland. If the repair is warrantable, Timberland will complete the repair at no cost and pay for return shipping. If it is not warrantable, customer will be responsible for the costs of the repair and the return shipping.

All our new Bakerized saws will be covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty. Customer is responsible for all costs associated with shipping to Timberland. If the repair is warrantable, Timberland will complete the repair at no cost and pay for return shipping. If it is not warrantable, customer will be responsible for the costs of the repair and the return shipping.
