Dolmar GmbH is the oldest manufacturer of the portable gasoline chainsaw and is headquartered in Hamburg Germany.
The company founder, Emil Lerp, developed in 1927 the “type A” saw which weighed 125 pounds, and required two men (and a boy) to operate. It was tested on Mount Dolmar in the Thüringer forest and the company took its name from the test site. The saw proved such a success that Emil Lerp soon used the name DOLMAR for his company as well. The saw introduced a technical revolution in forestry all over the world.
In 1991 the company was acquired by Japanese tool manufacturer Makita.
Dolmar manufactures a complete line of both 2 and 4 cycle handheld power equipment including Line Trimmers, Brush Cutters, Chainsaws, Blowers, Water Pumps, Cut Off Saws and Hedge Trimmers.
