MS 170 PETROL CHAINSAW
Treat Dad to his first (or 10th) chainsaw this Father’s Day. The STIHL MS 170 petrol chainsaw comes packed with all of the features that users have come to expect from the world’s leading brand of chainsaw.

If Dad’s on a larger block or uses his saw a little more regularly, then the MS 211 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 adjusting on the go.
For a limited time, you can pick up a second battery for half the retail price with the purchase of any AK battery system kit. There are 9 tools in the AK battery system, and here are our top kits for Dad this year.

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!
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.
If your Dad’s a STIHL Dad, then treat him to some STIHL gear this father’s day. No STIHL Dad’s garden is complete without a STIHL garden gnome. Not only will this little guy keep an eye on the garden overnight, our STIHL gnome will also add a little character to your home. Stocks are very limited, so be sure to contact your local Dealer to secure one today.
Every STIHL Dad also needs a STIHL cap. This everyday necessity is the perfect gift for Dads that loves their STIHL.
STIHL UNIVERSAL CONTRA BOX
Give Dad somewhere to store all of his bits and pieces in the shed or whilst on the go. This aluminium tin is multipurpose and can be used for storing just about anything that will fit, from nuts and bolts to coins and notes.
