Get to know the STIHL Battery KombiSystem

Cut the cord and your fuel costs with the innovative lithium-ion technology of the STIHL Battery KombiSystem.

STIHL has harnessed the power of lithium-ion technology to create a full line of outdoor power equipment that delivers clean, quiet and convenient performance and gives you another option to reduce your environmental impact. With 36-volt lithium-ion battery power, STIHL delivers hardworking and reliable equipment with no gasoline required and no confining power cord.  

The tools of the the STIHL Battery KombiSystem are designed to be lightweight and well balanced. The low-noise, zero emission motors run significantly quieter than gasoline-powered equivalents, making STIHL Lithium-Ion ideally suited for landscaping and yard care projects in neighborhoods, noise-restricted areas, and environmentally sensitive locations .

STIHL's lithium-ion batteries are designed for long running times with quick recharges and operate at full speed until fully depleted, so there is no gradual drop in power during use. And batteries are interchangeable, so it is easy to use multiple tools with one battery.

  1. I bought my first Stihl MSA 160 chainsaw in 2011, I find it to be very well made and easy to use, plus no more ethanol problems, stale fuel , fumes, chain rotation at idle when cold, vibration- no springs or buffers, noise - the saw is always ready and not vibrating away. I like the attention to detail, the Stihl MSA 160 is a dedicated rear handle saw not a top handle unit butchered to rear handle, the battery compartment cover to keep dirt out when not in use, the .43 gauge 1/4" chain makes a plane smooth cut, the narrow radius bars, the .43 carving bar is the finest wood carving tool available, the battery belt takes the weight off the shoulders-again unique. I could go on, Stihl knows chainsaws others make mowers.
