New for 2013.....
FEAR YOUR FUEL!!!
Cordless goes commercial.
Synthetic oil gets you double warranty.
Modern gasoline deteriorates much faster than ever before. We now advise buying and mixing only as much fuel as your likely to use in one month. You should buy super unleaded from a name brand station and if you can ascertain that the fuel is ethanol-free...even better. Stihl mixing oil has stabilizers in the blend so you won't need additional additives. Stihl synthetic blend seems to be a bit better at protecting the integrity of mixed fuel but beware that organic mixed fuel and synthetic mixed fuel don't blend.....you can jump back and forth between blends as the fuel tank empties but not half a tank of one mixed with a half of tank with the other. Last year, we saw an introduction of synthetic mixed fuel in quart cans that seems to be a great help to equipment owners who only need a couple of gallons a year.
Cordless equipment is going commercial with Stihl's line-up of lithium-ion battery powered units. Now we have two line trimmers, a double-sided hedge clipper, an extended hedgeclipper, a 12 inch chainsaw a 16 inch lawnmower and a 102mph leaf and debris blower. While the initial investment for these products is greater then a fuel-powered unit, we've calculated that over the 500 hour life of the battery, the cost savings is more than half versus a gasoline powered operation at $3.00+ per gallon.
New this spring...purchase a new gasoline powered Stihl unit for personal use( non-professional/municipal) and purchase a 6-pack of synthetic mix for each unit at the same time and the warranty is doubled. That's an additional year for saws and two years for most other units.
