STIHL the best

The house that we live in was previously a display home. One of the benefits of buying such a home is the beautifully landscaped gardens.  When we first moved in my husband only had basic gardening tools which included a mower, rake and secateurs. My husband knew he was going to need a brushcutter to keep the edges trim to maintain the neat appearance outside our home.  His request was for a STIHL brushcutter because he had experience using STIHL power tools with his dad when he lived on a farm during his teenage years so I decided to buy one for his birthday.

When it comes to buying tools, especially tools I know little about, I talk to my dad about brand, price and places that stock what I need.

My dad recommended the STIHL brushcutter too because that was what he used. He advised that when you know you need a particular tool that will get a lot of use, it’s best to buy quality and STIHL was the best.

At the time I thought Bunnings or Mitre 10 would have been the place to go, but dad advised me that we would have to go to a specialized dealer to buy the STIHL brand.

You see STIHL outdoor tools are a specialist product and can only be sold through STIHL specialist dealers. STIHL advises 10 reasons why this is the case but two main reasons are because they can recommend the right tool for your needs and can provide a maintenance service for the tool itself.

When I reflect back on my buying experience at the dealer my dad recommended (which he still uses to this day to get his mower and brushcutter serviced), I remember the technician asking a lot of questions about what I was going to use it for and being told the differences between the $250 and the $500 priced models.brushcutter

Our STIHL bruschcutter is still going strong (we’ve had it for over 5 years now) and with Father’s Day coming up, my husband hints for more tools which of course need to be of a certain quality brand.

STIHL manufacture a range of power tools and are well known for their chain saws. In fact, they are the number one selling chainsaw and cut-off saw brand in the world. In Australia, STIHL is the Number 1 brand for petrol hand-held power tools so you know that you are getting a good quality tool.

If chain saws aren’t his thing, STIHL’s range of grass trimmers or blowers may be the perfect ‘mate’ to help get the gardens looking neat this spring.
