GTA 26 BATTERY GARDEN PRUNER
This is STIHL’s number one selling tool worldwide, and for good reason. This handy little battery powered pruner is so much more than just a pruner. Not only is it great for trimming and cutting shrubs and bushes around the home, it also doubles as a DIYer’s best friend as it can cut timber and wooden planks up to 8cm in diameter, making it great for just about any home project. It also comes complete with a battery, charger and a neat little carrying case which makes it gift ready to go.
Treat Dad to his first (or 10th) chainsaw this Father’s Day. The STIHL MS 170 is another one of our best sellers and comes packed with all of the features that users have come to expect from the world’s leading brand of chainsaws. From the anti-vibration system, to the QuickStop Super chain brake or the STIHL ematic system to ensure maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption, a STIHL chainsaw is sure to top any Dad’s list this year.
If Dad’s on a larger block or uses his saw a little more regularly, then the MS 211 C-BE is a great step up from the MS 170. The MS 211 boasts a little more grunt, and packs in even more features like STIHL’s own Easy2Start technology, and our quick chain tensioning system for tool free adjusting on the go.
Lightweight for precise cutting with minimal effort, keeping smaller hedges and ornamental trees looking picture perfect is a snip with the ergonomically designed HSA 26. This handy little shearer features two cutting attachments and is also ideal for neat and tidying trimming around trees and garden beds. Go one step further with the optional extension arm which can be adjusted from 95cm – 110cm.
Lightweight, compact, yet packed with a heap of great features to make fun of cleaning. the RE 95 PLUS features an aluminium pump head, integrated wheel kit, cleaning agent spray set and two separate nozzles to suit the task at hand. It’s the perfect all rounder for cleaning just about anything from cars, bikes, windows; even the footpath!
Every Dad needs a quality lawn mower! And if yours is due for an upgrade, then look no further. A STIHL battery powered mower is sure to top any Dad’s wishlist this Father’s Day. The RMA 460 V is self-propelled and is designed to conquer medium to larger sized lawns with impressive ease and efficiency. Equipped with a durable steel mowing deck, large wheels, adjustable handles and a 60 litre catcher, a STIHL battery mower will help Dad tackle the lawn easily and quickly. The RMA 460 V is just one of eight battery mowers in the STIHL range.
This battery powered grass trimmer may be light, quiet, and easy to use – but don’t be fooled; it has the performance and power to tackle the untidiest of edges. With a cutting diameter of 350mm and a spacer bracket to keep the tree, play equipment and fence lines protected, this high quality, high performance product is the result of nearly 60 years of grass trimmer development – so you know you are giving Dad the best this year!
Dad will literally be blown away with the lightweight, easy control, power-packed BG 56 which makes clearing yards, paths and decks a breeze! This is another one of our best sellers and is perfectly priced for gifting.
A sharp chain cuts faster, is easier to manouvre, and requires less effort from the user, so a 2-in-1 file is a must for anyone that owns a chainsaw. This nifty little tool will allow Dad to keep his chain sharp on the go by completing two functions at one – sharpening the saw chain cutters and lowering the depth gauges with a each stroke. If your Dad doesn’t have one of these yet, this is the perfect gift and you can see it in action here.
Not only is a sawhorse incredibly safe and helpful while cutting firewood to length, it also removes the risk of running your bar into the ground which will leave you with a blunt chain every time. If your Dad spends all Winter cutting firewood to keep the family warm, this is a great gift idea.
