Are STIHL Battery Powered Tools Any Good?

Battery powered power tools are taking over the homeowner market. STIHL launched a line of battery powered tools specifically designed for homeowners. The AK series in particular is designed for the weekend warrior and has a battery that works with the entire line of tools. I’ve tested out most of the tools in this line and I think they are carrying on the STIHL reputation really well.

One of the most important parts of buying a power tool is making sure you’re working with someone who knows the tools. That is one of the most valuable aspects of buying a STIHL tool. You can only buy the tools from an authorized dealer. These dealers know all of the options available for homeowners and can help you decide which one is right for you.

We’ve put together a select group of full service STIHL dealers in DFW that are the best of the best. You can find a dealer near you here.

Stihl Battery Life Test

We are excited to launch our tool reviews videos! We've been working to build a relationship with Stihl to give us the opportunity to review some of their products. Plano Power Tools who is an authorized Stihl deal provided the tools and equipment for the reviews!
We started with a review of the battery life on their AK series of battery powered tools. 

The test was simple. I wanted to see if we could mow, trim and blow an average front yard on a single charge with just one battery. 

Tools Used
- Mower: RMA 460 
- Trimmer: FSA 56
- Blower: BGA 56

I was impressed and excited to see that not only did it have enough power to get the job done, the tools were incredibly easy to use as well. This is not the comprehensive review of each tool. Those videos will be coming out in the upcoming weeks as well as reviews of other battery and gas powered tools.
