A popular stop on the Saltex stand tour, STIHL (Stand DAC03) will be showcasing its professional power tool range with new models joining familiar favourites this year. Visitors will find new light weight petrol hedge trimmers, economic and efficient brushcutters and clearing saws, an extended range of cordless power tools, plus powerful new chain saws and protective clothing from STIHL.
Also on display, the VIKING range of garden care tools includes a nimble new ride-on and straightforward push mower both launched this spring. STIHL is running two special promotions until the end of September, adding even greater value to selected petrol hedge trimmers and all products in its KombiSystem range. And that gives even more reason to choose a power tool from STIHL.
Among the new products on show at Saltex this year are STIHL's lightest ever petrol hedge trimmers launched this July. The new models HS 46 C-E and HS 56 C-E are also the first 2-MIX hedge trimmers from STIHL, and with their gentle-start ErgoStart feature and simple new 3-step starting system they are not only light weight but also easy, economic and efficient to use. More new 2-MIX arrivals from STIHL this year include a powerful, top-of-the-range brushcutter and trio of new clearing saws, including the first clearing saw with the self-tuning benefits of the M-Tronic engine management system.
The world-leading STIHL chain saw range has been joined by a second M-Tronic model: the MS 241 C-M is a compact professional, perfect for landscapers and amenity use. A more specialist introduction this year is the next generation of STIHL's legendary arborists' chain saw, and now the new MS 201 T top-handled model has been joined by a rear-handled version - the lightest pro model in the STIHL chain saw range.
A major development from STIHL this year is the expansion of its cordless power tool range, with a leaf blower and chain saw, plus two grass trimmers and a VIKING mower joining the already well proven hedge trimmers. Typifying the STIHL focus on developing products that offer users great performance, maximum versatility and thereby optimum value, all cordless models are powered by the same inter-changeable lithium-ion batteries. And that makes the STIHL cordless range a good choice for anyone who values a powerful, yet quiet and emissions free grounds or garden care tool.
Another exciting new product launched officially this year, and this time for those working in hard-landscaping or construction, the STIHL Brick Jig is a unique innovation exclusive to STIHL. Complementing STIHL's best-selling cut-off saw range, the Brick Jig is a portable frame that holds multiple bricks or paving blocks ready to be cut quickly and accurately with a cut-off saw. Improving cut-off saw users' safety and productivity whilst reducing waste, the Brick Jig is an inspired site assistant, available now.
Also on the STIHL stand, the range of VIKING garden care products has once again expanded this year, and a number of new models make their first appearance at Saltex. The lawn mower range has been joined by a trio of new models including the economic and efficient push mower MB 248. VIKING also introduced a unique new ride-on mower in 2011, and the nimble MR 4082 is making its Saltex debut on the STIHL stand.
STIHL promotions offer more great deals STIHL is running two promotions through late summer and until the end of September this year. Anyone buying one of the petrol hedge trimmers included in the promotion will receive a free pack of goodies worth up to £60. Promotional packs vary in value depending on the model purchased. A second promotion adds even more to the economic appeal of the KombiSystem range.
Also running now until 30 September 2011, anyone buying a STIHL KombiEngine and KombiTool can purchase a second KombiTool at half price, with the 50% discount applied to the lowest price KombiTool. With twelve KombiTools available in the range, choosing the STIHL KombiSystem means users can manage a whole host of garden care tasks, with only one engine unit to purchase, service and maintain.
Full new products details and information on the STIHL promotions will be available on STIHL Stand DAC 03, where the professional team will give visitors guidance and help.
