Stihl range offers power and quality
Stihl excellence: Campbell Watt says OMC
Power Equipment's range of Stihl cordless tools
are ideal for domestic use, but are
professionally rated for more demanding work.
German manufacturing excellence is on
display at OMC Power Equipment, in the form
of the Stihl range of cordless equipment.
The tools have the distinction of being
powered by a 36-volt lithium-ion battery,
which brings several advantages that
traditional DC batteries cannot match.
Because they do not retain a memory, the
batteries can be used partly charged or can be
charged only long enough to complete a task.
They can also be fully charged more swiftly
than their older counterparts, taking less than
What's more, all of the tools in the Stihl
cordless range can be recharged from the
same charging unit.
The battery packs, too, can be switched
between the tools as required, which means a
battery can be rotated among a number of
To minimise the weight of the tools
themselves, batteries can be carried in a belt
worn around the waist, with power being
conveyed to the implement via a lead.
Campbell Watt, a member of the family that
has owned OMC Power Equipment since 1982,
says the Stihl range is extremely powerful, and
while it is highly suitable for domestic use, it
is also professionally rated for more
The operator of these cordless tools never
requires extension leads to reach areas that
are distant from the power source.
There is no risk of cords being pulled from
power sockets, tangling, or being
inadvertently severed while in use.
Watt says the composition of the motors
provides 40 per cent longer running time than
those powered by the old DC batteries.
''The Stihl product comes out in Germany
long before we ever see it, so the tools are all
well proven before they arrive in New
Zealand,'' he says.
The range includes a compact leaf blower;
two heavy-duty hedge trimmers that have a
blade length of up to 620 millimetres and a
capability of cutting branches 22mm in
diameter; a third long-reach hedge trimmer
with adjustable angles of up to 105 degrees
through six different settings; two line
trimmers (weedeaters); and a versatile
chainsaw that can be used for light work like
pruning or more demanding assignments such
The cordless tools range in price from $195
to $495, all inclusive of GST.
The fully automatic, fan-cooled charger may
be purchased for $165.
Two batteries with different capacities are
available from $235.
Should a problem occur with any of the
cordless tools, a self-diagnostic capacity allows
the fault to be diagnosed and remedied by
