STIHL® Outdoor Power Equipment
Clean up your yard like a pro with STIHL’s battery-powered line of legendary chainsaws, dependable hedge trimmers, powerful blowers, and garden shears. STIHL tools are German-engineered, and a majority of them are built in America. So it’s no surprise that they use the highest-quality metals, innovative polymers, and other materials you won’t find on a lot of other brands. Affordable, yet designed for reliability and built for the long haul, that’s why so many people use them, and recommend them.
STIHL battery-powered products feature brushless motors and make little noise, so they’re ideal for areas requiring low noise such as hospitals, schools, or early morning jobs. (No need to be that annoying neighbor who is up at the crack of dawn on a Sunday morning cranking up loud power tools.) Battery-operated tools are user-friendly and require little to no maintenance, and you’ll save money on fuel, oil, spare parts, and labor for repairs. Zero emissions mean no smelly gas fumes.
These tools are perfect for homeowners and come as a kit, which includes the tool, battery, and charger. You can also buy units individually as you expand your collection. Batteries are interchangeable with the AK line that we stock. Come to our Cole Valley, North Beach, or Rockridge locations to learn more about the line. Our crew will be happy to answer any questions, and we even have an interactive video module where you can learn about the products and watch how-to videos. Here are some of the STIHL products you’ll find at our stores:
Chainsaw AK20 is a great battery-powered chainsaw for homeowners, handling storm cleanup to limb removal. This bundle comes standard with the AK 20 battery and AL 101 charger. It features low vibration, quick chain adjustment, and the STIHL Quickstop® Plus chain braking feature. (Sku 7000126, $299.95)
The HSA 56 hedge trimmer delivers exceptional performance and value. It is portable and lightweight at only 8.1 pounds (including the AK 10 battery), while also packing a performance punch. It features a high cutting speed of 2,800 strokes per minute, slicing through overgrown hedges with minimal vibration. Trim the length of three football fields on a single charge—that’s up to 900 feet. And when you’re done, just hang it on the wall from its onboard hanging slot. It’s a great hedge trimmer for suburban yard care. (Sku 7000146, $249.95)
The BGA 45 handheld blower delivers the power you need at an incredible value. It is exceptionally quiet and lightweight at 4.4 pounds, including its integrated battery. On a single charge, the BGA 45 can clear more than 13 parking spaces (2,153 square feet) with a blowing speed of 85 mph and an air volume of 235 cfm. If you own a small property and need a quick go-to blower for your driveway and walkways, the BGA 45 is the complete package. (Sku 7000152, $129.95)
The RMA 460 lawn mower is compatible with two battery types, providing homeowners with performance options based on yard size. With a deck width of 19 inches, the RMA 460 is highly maneuverable for quick and efficient grass cutting with each pass. Its 15.85-gallon grass catcher allows for more grass cutting and less stopping, while the handlebar is easily adjustable for user comfort. It’s great for small- to medium-sized yards (under half an acre) and can also be used as a mulching mower. Available at Rockridge only. (Sku 7000138, $419.95)
