Battery technology offers many advantages and is becoming increasingly popular as a result. Lithium-ion batteries are no longer just used in smartphones and laptops; components are now being used to supply power in cars and aeroplanes as well. STIHL offers customers’ products based on the same technology, and which also facilitate quiet, emissions-free working. The specially designed batteries boast short charging times and provide dependable power for reliable operation. The STIHL range of cordless power tools has much to offer, with over 30 tools to choose from. This blog post will give readers an overview of the various product lines available, to enable you to find the perfect STIHL cordless tool for your needs.
Cordless products: for creativity in small gardens
We all start small. For us, that means the front garden or even the potted boxwoods on your terrace. Our STIHL FSA 45 cordless brushcutter, HSA 45 cordless hedge trimmer and BGA 45 cordless blower are ideal for trimming grass, tidying hedges and sprucing up small outdoor spaces. All the tools feature a control display so you can keep an eye on your tool’s charging status. Like almost all cordless tools, they can be used without ear protection. All of which means that you can simply switch them on and get started. Once the task is finished, you can just use a charging cable to plug the cordless product into a socket – it’s as easy as charging a smartphone!

COMPACT cordless power system: One battery for all
As your garden gets bigger, so do the challenges you face. Our STIHL COMPACT cordless power system is specifically designed to suit medium-sized and larger gardens. The replaceable batteries for the system, available in three different capacities, not only allow for longer battery life, but can also be used interchangeably in any COMPACT cordless power system tool. This means that you are ready with a battery for any application, whether it’s mowing the lawn, trimming hedges or cutting wood. For example, the HSA 56 cordless hedge trimmer will give you up to 40 minutes of emissions-free working in combination with the AK 10 battery, and up to as much as two hours with the AK 30 battery. This means you can relax and enjoy working around the home and garden, with zero emissions. The same battery can perform up to 180 cuts when teamed with the MSA 140 C-BQ chainsaw; thanks to the low-vibration drive, cutting with this tool is particularly precise. So as well as doing your own garden maintenance you can also create firewood with ease, for a cosy campfire or your own fireplace at home.

PRO cordless power system: Maximum power for professional applications
Sometimes you just need more. This is especially true for professionals such as landscape gardeners or municipal facilities. The STIHL PRO cordless power system is the perfect choice for all-day operation in the professional sector. This system includes two power supply options, depending on the specific model in question. The tools are powered either using a replaceable battery or via a connecting cable to a backpack battery, in which the weight of our powerful batteries is distributed across the user’s shoulders. Additional adapters allow for further power supply combinations for the tool.
The STIHL AR 3000 battery has the longest battery life. The battery runs for over 13 hours when used with our cordless long-reach hedge trimmers; up to seven hours when used with the brushcutter; and over three and a half hours when used to operate the chainsaw. What’s more, our tools are not just powerful, but also particularly light. These perfectly balanced, lightweight tools allow for easy handling as you work.
However, long battery life and comfortable handling aren’t the only advantages for pros: almost all of the tools in this system can also be used in the rain. That means that even in bad weather, nothing can get in the way of your work. Another appealing feature of the PRO cordless power system is the sheer variety of products on offer. In addition to chainsaws, long-reach hedge trimmers and blowers, this range of cordless tools also includes pruning shears, pole pruners and a cut-off machine.
