STIHL will be exhibiting its expanded range of cordless garden power tools at Glee this week, as the popularity of the manufacturer’s battery-powered products continues to rise amongst keen gardeners.

Traditionally, STIHL tools have been available through an extensive network of more than 650 garden machinery and forestry specialists. Since the introduction of STIHL’s lithium-ion powered products designed specifically to meet the needs of domestic users, Glee presents the perfect platform to showcase how its range of cordless tools is now more accessible to everyday gardeners. 

Simon Hewitt, head of marketing at STIHL GB, said: “The new STIHL Lithium-Ion range, and award-winning STIHL Compact Cordless System, are proving to be of great interest to garden centres and it’s a pleasure to be present at Glee this year.”

The full range of STIHL battery-powered tools now includes more than 35 lightweight and quiet machines such as; chainsaws, hedge and grass trimmers, pole pruners, long reach hedge trimmers, lawn mowers and much more. These join the company’s range of electrical tools including pressure washers, grass and hedge trimmers as well as blowers and vacuum shredders.

I wonder if this means that their previous lock down on Stihl dealers selling outside their area is now gone, or just on these Li Ion powered products?

Also applies to their sister brand Echo.

That meant their dealers couldn't offer Mail Order though it used to. You'd have thought such restrictions illegal under competition rules, but they use the old Health & Safety argument saying dealer must explain workings of the item in person. and of course it ensures prices are maintained at a high level.
