Whether for professional vineyards and orchards or garden and landscape maintenance, with our premium saws and shears as well as the STIHL GTA 26 garden pruner you will be fully equipped for all cutting work on plants and trees.
If you regularly cut back trees and shrubs, shred green cuttings or cut wood in your garden, and want to work as efficiently as possible, then you can reach for our garden pruner. Easy to operate and equipped with high power, this garden pruner is particularly intended for home gardeners, but also effectively supports horticultural and landscaping professionals in their work. The batteries in these tools enable mobile and emissions-free work.
Once the plants and shrubs in your garden have finished flowering or when it’s time to prune the vines in your vineyard, you need a tool you can rely on.
Just like our secateurs and pruning shears, STIHL tree and pruning saws offer everything you need for precise cuts, as well as clean cuts that keep plants healthy. And just like all our tools, they’re suitable for amateur gardeners and professionals alike.
You can ensure better fruit tree growth and a greater yield by regularly cutting back twigs and branches. What’s more, by removing dead parts of the tree, you’ll prevent rot from spreading and eliminate the risk of accidents from falling branches. However, it’s worth noting that you’ll need different tools for different plants. When choosing a cutting tool, you also need to consider whether the branches are still fresh and green or if they’re old and dry. Shears that use a bypass mechanism are great for green cuttings. For dry, harder wood, we recommend shears with an anvil mechanism.
STIHL bypass secateurs with single-hand clasp have two crossing-over blades which are perfectly coordinated so that you can make clean cuts without crushing the cuttings. The bypass mechanism is best suited to cutting fresh wood such as young shoots, roses and green wood, as this tool is as gentle on your plants as possible. To ensure that sap and dirt do not cause the blades to get stuck together, lots of our bypass secateurs have a practical sap groove. Last but not least, the integrated wire-cutting notch means that you won’t need an additional tool when you’re fixing vines.
With anvil secateurs, the sharpened blade cuts through the wood before hitting a smooth, unsharpened surface which is referred to as an anvil. This method makes cutting through dead and hard wood an absolute breeze. Anvil pruning shears or secateurs do not require a great deal of force, so you can work for long periods without overexerting yourself or straining your joints.
Where garden or pruning shears reach the limits, you’ll succeed with STIHL pruning saws. We have various pruning saws to suit a multitude of tasks, from the short tree saw for universal applications in landscaping and the construction industry, to folding saws with Japanese-style teeth, to professional saws for telescopic shafts – all with stay-sharp chrome-plated carbon steel Even the most difficult to reach branches don’t pose a problem for these saws.
