Your Spring Essentials

September 23, 2016

Spring is here, the weather is warmer, and the yard is eagerly awaiting your return. Whether you’re a gardening guru on the lookout for tools, or a no-fuss worker wanting to get the job done, we’ve compiled three simple products that every homeowner should try.

1. Hedge Trimmer

Trim delicate plants, sculpt full hedges, or control bushes with ease using any of our STIHL Hedge Trimmers. Whether you need it for a residential garden or a commercial park, our range of petrol, electric and cordless trimmers put the power of creativity in your hands.

Our Petrol Hedge Trimmers are hard-working and long-lasting. The double-sided cutting blades provide a clean cut, which are excellent for slicing through stronger, thicker branches. You can also enjoy the STIHL anti-vibration system, which dampens the engine’s vibration and reduces fatigue.

Meanwhile, the Electric Hedge Trimmers provide great versatility of use. The adjustable cutting head and rotary handle allow you to tackle hedges from all angles — perfect for those bothersome twigs and thin branches. Plus, each blade is laser cut and ground using diamond discs, for high resilience and long-life sharpness.

Finally, for a quiet, mobile and powerful tool, you can’t look past our Cordless Hedge Trimmers. Powered by a high-performance 36V Lithium-Ion battery, these trimmers have long run-times and high-level motor speeds, making them ideal for homeowners and landscapers alike. The optimised cutter bar also means you can enjoy superior cutting in noise-sensitive areas.

Come see us about your garden’s needs. We can help you find the right product, from the lightweight and manoeuvrable, to the powerful and versatile.

2. Grass Trimmer or Brushcutter

Grass Trimmers and Brushcutters are the ideal tools for lawn touch-ups and terrain control. The main difference between brushcutters (or ‘whipper snippers’) and grass trimmers (or ‘line trimmers’) is that brushcutters typically have straight shafts, while grass trimmers have bent shafts.

We have a wide selection for you to choose from, across our variety of Homeowner Grass Trimmers, Landowner Brushcutters, Professional Brushcutters, and Professional Clearing Saws. That means we have a product to suit any yard and any job, like trimming lawn edges along footpaths and fences, thinning tough terrain, clearing grass in tough-to-reach places, removing strong scrub from roadsides, and more.

3. Mistblower or Sprayer

Spring is a time when your garden can thrive — but so can weeds and plant-killing pests! For a greener, healthier yard, our range of Mistblowers and Sprayers are perfect. They tackle all kinds of jobs, from weed control in flower beds to pest control in vineyards.

They’re quick and easy to operate, making them a labour-saving way to help protect your plants. Measuring the dosage has also been made simple, with many varieties having built-in measuring cups.

Our STIHL Sprayers are great for use around the garden, including potted plants, young plants, seedling, vegetable gardens, flower beds, small shrubs and trees. They can be used with pesticides, plant strengtheners and fertilisers. Plus they have minimal spray drift, meaning they are suitable for weed control.

Our range of STIHL Mistblowers can be used for tall vegetable crops, vines, shrubs, trees, nurseries, and plants with thick foliage. In addition to your typical liquids, Mistblowers are capable of spreading seeds, powders and granules.

Being compact and sturdily constructed, our Mistblowers and Sprayers are extremely comfortable to carry and use. Whether you’re a home gardener, a farmer, an orchardist or a winegrower, we have the product to help you out.
