Stihl Weedeaters Why they are the Only Make I Buy

Updated on January 5, 2016

Stihl Weedeaters

Why I Use Stihl Weed Eaters

First let me say this when using any type of gas powered tool always use caution and think Safety First.

Wear eye protection and Ear plugs long pants and Gloves.

I always like to try to buy American made products but this product is so well made I have to keep buying it.

I have a lot of property that I take care of. I used to do 25 plus lawns a week. There is no other Weed Eater out there that will last or run as long as a Stihl. I have been using them for over 20 years and have also tried many other brands some don’t make one season some only make two seasons. But the Stihl Weed eaters I have had last 10 plus years with no repairs. The only thing I have ever done on these machines is Fill it with fresh gas and lube the head every now and then. It will set all winter in my garage and I put fresh gas in it, choke it and a couple pulls and I am in business. There are many models to chose from. It depends on what you need it for. There are ones with Bent Shafts and ones with Handlebars. There is also one that can be used with a tree trimmer attachment on a long shaft. The most important thing about them is the Warranty. It has a 2 year warranty with on purchase with an additional 2 years with the purchase of a 6 pack of Stihl oil. So you get a 4 year warranty, I have never had to use this warranty. I have never run it without using Stihl oil, and I always use middle grade gas in it. Not Regular, I found out that it runs better that way. That is probably why my, Stihl Weed Eaters have always lasted so long.

The other great thing about Stihl is the different attachments that can be purchased. If you have heavier things to cut then you can fasten on a blade. If there is thicker weeds to cut and the trimmer line keeps breaking then there is a Nylon head with Nylon blades that can be attached.

      Already have a craftsman, Bill; decent machine, but Stihl, like Snap-On, is top-shelf. Well done hub, facts!
