STIHL Inc. Earns Dealer’s Choice Award at GIE+EXPO

We were recently recognized with a Power Equipment Trade (PET) Dealers Choice Award for the HSA 65 STIHL lithium-ion battery hedge trimmer. Adam Hanks, product manager, accepted the award on behalf of STIHL Inc. during GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Ky., on October 30.

More than 230 dealers attending GIE+EXPO voted online and onsite for their favorite new products in the fourth annual Power Equipment Trade (PET) GIE+EXPO Dealers Choice Awards, which honors innovation and new technology in five product categories: wheeled, handheld, business service, powersports/recreation and accessory/attachment.

“We are pleased to be honored with this recognition from dealers,” said Hanks. “They are such an important part of our distribution strategy, and their commitment keeps STIHL a top brand in the outdoor power equipment industry.”

The STIHL HSA 65 was also recently recognized with a Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award, which celebrates the “most brilliant innovators and products of the year.”
