DIY Home Improvement Projects With STIHL
TOOL STIHL MSA 120 C-BQ: – This lightweight lithium-ion battery chain saw is perfect for grounds maintenance and smaller jobs. It comes equipped with STIHL’s electric motor, which runs quietly and is extremely energy efficient, lightweight, and compact. This chain saw also comes with STIHL’s Quickstop ‘Super’ chain brake for improved safety.
TIPS: Check by-laws, be careful of hydro and phone lines, and wear protective glasses. You cannot burn wood in open pits in many communities, so research disposal options. You should never work alone with chainsaws and you should always ensure that someone else – who can help in an emergency – is within a close distance.
Updating the garden
TOOL STIHL HSA 45: –TheHSA 45 lithium-ion battery hedge trimmer provides great cutting performance for trimming shrubs and bushes in the yard. This model comes with a double-sided cutter blade, screw-on tip protector, and an integrated 18 V lithium-ion battery with charge level indicator.
TIPS: Go slow, have a plan, and wear shoes which cover your toes. Cut the vertical sides of a hedge first, using an upward and downward sweeping motion and moving forwards along the hedge as you work.
Home renovation (inside and out)
TOOL STIHL TSA 230: – The STIHL TSA 230 is the world’s first battery-powered cut-off machine. With a 230 mm (9”) cutting wheel and emission-free cordless technology, the TSA 230 ensures clean work both indoors and outdoors. Its light and compact design with ergonomic handle allows for ease of use and comfortable operation. This machine will be your new favourite tool for construction and renovation projects.
TIPS: Wear a mask, wear protective glasses, and ensure spatial distance between you and anyone else working on your home renovation project. Working with power tools can throw up stones, debris or dirt, and your hands and feet will be right on the front lines. STIHL offers an extensive range of special gloves and shoes to protect your hands and feet.
STIHL’s lithium-ion products are designed to operate in noise-sensitive areas, such as around the house and in the garden. The lithium-ion battery packs are highly efficient – making these STIHL products better for the environment.
So far this year, my husband has built two different decks with friends. It’s time spent being productive, outdoors, and bonding with your tribe. That makes me think of another DIY Home Improvement Project tip…don’t be afraid to ask friends and family to help out. Many hands make light work (especially if they are handy hands).
