STIHL launches new cordless range
STIHL has launched a new range of compact cordless products boasting some of the features most loved by gardening professionals. Included in the new range is a cordless blower, cordless chainsaw, hedge trimmer (pictured banner above) and grass trimmer.
The STIHL Cordless Blower is lightweight (weighing 3.3kg (including battery) but powerful and gets paths and patios cleared of leaves and cuttings. It is quieter than a petrol powered model so there is minimal disruption to your neighbours and with no exhaust fumes there is little impact on the environment. (pictured below)
The blower tube is fully adjustable, allowing you to set the blower to a choice of height positions with just one quick movement. The blower runs for up to 20 minutes with the AK 20 battery, giving you plenty of time to clear the latest leaf fall. It comes supplied with a charger and one of two long-lasting 36V Lithium-ion batteries, with different energy capacities.
Large, heavy chainsaws are a thing of the past thanks to the new lightweight STIHL Compact Cordless System chainsaw, (pictured above) perfect for pruning small branches around the garden or cutting logs for the fire. Weighing in at just 3.7kg (including battery), the MSA 120 C-BQ has a ¼” Picco chain and 30cm cutting bar. The chainsaw also has a number of safety features – the hand guard must be released for the saw to operate, the quick-stop super chain brake significantly reduces the chain coasting time once the trigger is released and the battery’s neutral locking position means that the chainsaw is safe to move and cannot be accidentally started in transit.
Trimming hedges and pruning shrubs can be a challenging task, especially if you are tackling difficult to reach branches. The STIHL Compact Cordless Hedge Trimmer is powerful and easy to operate, with double-sided teardrop straped blades, which will pull and trap small branches between the blades’ teeth for smooth and efficient cutting. STIHL point out that the trimmer can run for up to 40 minutes with the AK10 battery, giving you plenty of time to tackle hedges and shrubs around the average garden in one session.
The STIHL Compact Cordless Grass Trimmer is super lightweight (3.3kg including batter) with a height adjustable shaft that can be altered at the push of a button. It has a handy eyelet, which you can use to hang the trimmer on a hook or nail and for the benefit of transport the battery’s neutral locking position means it is safe to move and cannot be accidentally started in transit.
The new STIHL Compact Cordless System is available at over 650 STIHL approved dealerships nationwide with experts on hand to offer help and advice.
