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.​

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 lossLess 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.

If you are a professional who uses a chain saw, our Bakerization customization will make your life easier!  Call us today to start the process.

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 3-7 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?

If it’s a professional model saw, then we probably can. In fact, many of the older professional saws will benefit immensely but there are conditions and limitations. Check out the ”Note for Non-New Saws:” and as always, feel free to give us a call for clarification.

Can I ship my saw to you for customization?

Yes – new or old! For Canadian customers, you pay the shipping to us (regular ground only). We will reimburse you this cost and pay the return shipping to any Canadian address (regular ground only). For U.S.-based customers, you can ship us your saw, but you will have to pay the shipping charges both ways.

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.
