Even the laziest weekend gardener can get his blooms blooming beautifully with the right equipment. Along with spades and watering-cans, an essential gardening tool is a good pair of shears. It is important to get the right type of shears for your needs, and the right size. Stilh offers a selection of bypass and anvil pruning shears, in different sizes, as well as lopping shears and hedge shears.
For those finer, close-up, fiddly cutting operations secateurs are useful. Secateurs are mini-shears, a smaller, single-handed tool with two short sharp blades mostly used for cutting plant stems.
For heavier garden exigencies, Stihl saws come in various versions. For a serious sawing project it is important to use the right type of saw. Stihl specialist saws with heavy-duty names (Megacut, Handycut and Super Turbocut) guarantee precision and speed of execution.
The year “1926”, evidenced on the blade of the “1926 Edition” forestry hatchet, celebrates the founding year of the Stihl company. Each piece is unique, having its own production number. The handle is in ash wood and it comes with a leather blade cover. Other Stihl hatchets include forestry hatches and cleaving hatchets.
Moving up into the larger and heavier axe category, also forestry axes and cleaving axes are available as “1926 Edition”. Stihl also produces universal hatchets and axes in polyamide.
After the tree is felled, it must be moved. Stihl has a range of hooks, tongs and lifting hooks to turn and move all your timber. Felling levers and a range of cleaving and felling wedges to guide the fall of the tree complete the forestry hand-tool collection.
Stilh professional hand tools for forestry work are solid, reliable and specialised, and Stihl also provides all the smaller accessories necessary for working in the forest, even those little measuring and marking devices where precision is essential.
