Storm Safety Part 2: Tools for Storm Cleanup

Having the right tools can make all the difference in your cleanup efforts after the storm has passed. Here are some of the products we recommend:

This gasoline-powered leaf blower quickly clears dirt, fallen leaves and other post storm debris from driveways and sidewalks and hard-to-reach places. This blower also features our simplified starting system; STIHL Easy2Start™ and optional gutter attachments.

With its 9-foot-2-inch length and affordable price, this pole pruner brings storm cleanup and tree maintenance tasks within easier reach, allowing users to reach up to 14 feet above ground. The HT 56 C-E comes equipped with a durable STIHL bar and chain for optimal cutting performance, while the STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting almost effortless.

STIHL Duro Carbide Chain
Storm cleanup often means dirty and gritty environments.  The STIHL PICCO™ Duro 3 low-profile, low-kickback chain specially designed for longer cutting edge life. Precision-welded carbide cutting edges make this chain extremely hard – keeping it sharp up to four times longer than standard saw chains

Whether your mess is wet or dry, large or small, these wet/dry vacuums boast strong suction power and a high-efficiency filter and cleaning system requiring less maintenance. The STIHL SE 61 is perfect for everyday use, while the SE 122 works for cleanup on even the toughest jobs.
