Stihl's hand-held gardening equipment offers convenience and versatility to consumers. Its "KombiSystem" engine with interchangeable attachments allows purchasers to use one machine as a pull-saw, chainsaw, hedge trimmer or leaf blower. Meanwhile, its battery-powered tools use a uniform, modular power source that can be shared between tools.
Stihl power equipment is Deere’s preferred brand of hand-held power tools. With Stihl equipment, backed by Deere’s reputation for quality machinery and customer service, yard care is hardly a chore.
Today’s hand-held power tools are lightweight and easy to use, with an arsenal that includes power trimmers, leaf blowers, lawn edgers, hedge trimmers and chainsaws. Can’t decide what tools you need most? Multi-task tool systems accept a wide range of attachments, quickly converting to the tool of your choice.
Stihl leads the way with its unique KombiSystem, which offers unprecedented versatility. Their Kombi system is a dedicated power head - it’s an engine on its own with interchangeable attachments. So, with one engine, you can do a pull-saw, a hedge trimmer, a chainsaw or a leaf blower. With a simple turn of a screw, you take off the current attachment, put on the desired one, tighten it up and you’re good to go.
This Kombi engine allows for much more efficient use of limited space. Storage is becoming such a sought-after commodity in our homes now because people are tending to keep more things or buy more things and not have the space for them.
Now, instead of buying five different engines with dedicated machines, you buy one engine and you can buy seven more attachments, so it takes away from having to store and service all of those extra engines.
The choices don’t stop here; options include electric, battery or gas-powered tools, each power system offers advantages.
Gasoline-powered tools may be considered old-school, but manufacturers like Stihl have given them a modern tune-up. New low-emission engines deliver impressive power and fuel efficiency.
Stihl also offers user-friendly battery-powered yard equipment, which is gaining favor for its simplicity, ergonomics and ease of use. The battery-powered line is a complete line of hand-held equipment ranging from chainsaws to hedge-trimmers, to weedeaters, to leaf blowers. They all take lithium batteries that can run on continuous charges from 45 to 90 minutes of continuous use depending on the battery’s strength.”
Stihl’s gas-powered and battery-powered tools operate with the same torque and are nearly indistinguishable, and the battery-powered line employs a modular power source that can be shared with other, similar tools. One thing about the battery-powered line is that the one battery is interchangeable with all of the implements, so you can buy one battery for five pieces of Stihl equipment.
This particular line of tools is ideal for home owners who wish to reduce the noise of their yard work.
Price is, however, a significant factor in choosing between gas-powered and battery-powered models. In incorporating portable batteries there are cost savings, because that 100-foot extension cord can run you $75 to $100.
Nevertheless, the relative cost of advanced, battery-powered tools may decide their value to the individual buyer. The corded options are considerably cheaper than the battery-powered options.
