Petrol-powered garden tools, such as chainsaws, brushcutters, lawn mowers and hedge trimmers, should be stored properly during the winter so that they are ready for use again next spring.
Equipped with powerful cordless tools, the STIHL “special task force” joined forces to get the SOS Children’s Village Black Forest ready for winter. And all kinds of STIHL tools were in use when it came time to tackle the grass, trees and shrubs.
Colourful blossoms in spring, verdant green in summer, magnificent orange and red leaves and berries in autumn, and beautiful frosty branches in winter: Hedges shape the feel of a garden and make the change of the seasons a vivid experience for everyone to see and enjoy. What’s more, they play an especially important role in the ecosystem by providing a home as well as protection from the wind and the weather to a wide range of animals. Hedges also prevent excessive evaporation and soil erosion by protecting the soil from heat and strong gusts of wind.
Power tools, such as lawn trimmers and hedge trimmers, should be inspected one last time at the end of the season before they go into hibernation for several months in the winter. In general, you have to take good care of your helpful garden tools if you want to be able to use them again right away when spring comes.
