Elk NetworkThree Considerations to Build Your Outdoor Toolkit With STIHL

Sponsored Content | May 7, 2024

There are several factors to consider when it comes to preparing for your next venture. One you might be overlooking is the quality and power source of the tools you’re taking into the outdoors.  Whether you’re getting back to the mountains on a spring camping trip, scouting for the fall hunts, or on the pursuit to fill your tag, STIHL has a tool solution to fit your needs. With the advancements in battery technology, there are even more tools to choose from when selecting the right products for your applications. Fortunately, your friends at STIHL have provided three areas of consideration to help you find the handheld outdoor power equipment solution for you.


Condition of Location

The location of your next hunt will determine several aspects of your outdoor power equipment needs. How accessible is your area? Will you get there by foot or vehicle? What is the elevation?  These influences all play pivotal roles in the type of tools you may need. Lugging heavy chainsaws and extra fuel might not be the most logical solution when you need to travel a long distance as battery chainsaws will accomplish the same result in a lighter package. Elevation is another consideration as high elevations have an adverse effect on the performance of gas-powered tools.  You may even want to consider adding some hand tools to your pack. The lightweight nature of these tools makes them ideal for clearing overgrown vegetation while setting your spring trail cameras or preparing your next stand. 


Benefits of Battery

STIHL’s legendary lineup of gas-powered equipment has been well known in the outdoor community for a long time. Now, many outdoors enthusiasts are trusting their next adventure to STIHL battery. Battery-powered tools offer several benefits.

The first is scent control. Regardless of the season, success often relies on a hunter’s ability to control scent. One way to eliminate the odors associated with outdoor power equipment is to convert to battery-powered tools. STIHL’s extensive lineup of battery equipment provides you with ample options to consider without sacrificing the power and performance of the tool.

Battery tools also offer the benefit of versatility. While carbureted engines need to be adjusted to compensate for air levels at various elevations, battery tools eliminate the need for adjustments—helping you make the most of your time when in the field. Battery tools provide consistent power at all elevations when your time matters most. 

Finally, battery-powered tools are generally much quieter, causing less disruption to the surrounding area. When noise pollution is something to be considered, battery tools are a great choice as they are ideal for those noise-sensitive environments.


Value of Preparation

No matter if you prefer gas or battery-powered tools, it is always a good idea to ensure that your equipment is in optimal working condition before heading out on your next adventure.
