If you're looking for good-quality battery-powered lawn and landscaping equipment to use around your home, Stihl is one of your best options. Sure it's a bit more expensive than some other homeowner tools, but in this case you definitely get what you pay for.

You don't have to be a professional landscaper to appreciate good-quality tools. If you're going to spend a lot of time working around your house, you want your equipment to deliver top-quality performance every time you use it. You also want it to last a long time, and that's the sort of quality you'll find with Stihl.

Here's a quick look at the different options that Stihl offers homeowners who want long-lasting, reliable, and easy to use battery-powered equipment.

Higher-Quality Battery

Stihl's 36-volt Lithium-Ion batteries are the cornerstone of their battery-powered tool line. These batteries let you eliminate fuel costs and engine maintenance. They're a fast, efficient way to power your tools. Plus, they don't experience a gradual drop in power like so many other batteries, so you can work at peak efficiency for the entire charge.

The AK and AP series batteries are easy to snap in and out of the tools. Depending on which charger you use, drained batteries can be back at full power in as little as 25 to 60 minutes.

You probably won't need the longer run times offered by backpack battery packs, but they are available. They're designed to let landscape crews use certain trimmers, pole pruners, hedge trimmers, blowers, and chainsaws for several hours longer than with other batteries.

Interchangeable Batteries and Tools

The different batteries are interchangeable between different tools, making it convenient for your to mix-and-match tools. However, not all tools take the same batteries and different batteries supply different run times. Here's a list of which tools you can run off the same battery, and you can check out this link for run times: STIHL Battery Charge and Run Times.
