Professionals like working with STIHL cordless power tools, as they offer many advantages. We present the most important ones.
STIHL cordless power tools offer many advantages in garden, landscape and tree maintenance as well as in municipal work – for employees and companies as well as for customers. They enable efficient, emission-free working. They are also quiet, powerful and have a long service life.
The STIHL AP System for professional use includes a wide range of cordless power tools from various categories, which are particularly versatile thanks to high-performance lithium-ion batteries and backpack batteries. Proven STIHL quality, the highest safety standards, extensive accessories and smart energy and charge management included.
Lithium-ion batteries are used in all STIHL cordless power tools – they offer many advantages:
The particular advantages of AP batteries include:
Ergonomic STIHL cordless professional power tools make life easier for employees when it comes to physical strain. The handy design and optimal device balance contribute to this.
The AP carrying system and AP holster with connecting cable ensure ideal weight distribution during transport.
In addition, the devices have only low vibrations, which make them less tiring for muscles. This means precision work is also possible over a longer period of time.
The cordless power tools can be operated with zero emissions, which is a great advantage from both a health and an environmental perspective. In addition, the working volume for employees is significantly lower.
The cordless advantages for professionals are clearly evident from STIHL chainsaws. Thanks to the ergonomic design, you always have both hands on the saw, which increases safety when working on the tree, for example. The simple start-up procedure also contributes to this – without any scribing, but with full power at startup.
A decisive battery advantage for companies is the usually lower operating costs. Maintenance costs are also kept to a minimum, as components such as spark plugs and filters are no longer required for cordless power tools.
Especially in noise-sensitive areas such as kindergartens or schools, regulations affecting working with petrol-driven power tools are to be expected. The quieter cordless power tools play to their strengths here.
AP System power tools are designed for daily use and can be used even in adverse weather conditions. This means you can plan your assignments reliably and there is no downtime.
Use in the rain
All products with this symbol can also be used in the rain. The splashproof qualities have been verified through internal tests.
STIHL cordless power tools with this symbol are also additionally certified in accordance with the IPX4 protection class. This standard confirms resistance to water splashing from any direction, as certified by internal testing.
Cordless power tools are beneficial to health protection in the company because they are emission-free, which means they also have a lower CO2 footprint.
Finally, it can be stated that today’s cordless power tools are so powerful that a majority of the work can be carried out efficiently with them. From this point of view, they have long been able to compete with petrol-driven machines.
The optimum interplay of all system components should also be highlighted: STIHL batteries can be flexibly combined with all power tools in the system. With STIHL connected you can also keep an eye on the most important power tool data from anywhere.
Modern cordless products also have decisive advantages for the immediate surroundings. They generate little noise and are suitable for environmentally friendly, emission-free work without unpleasant odours – even in noise-sensitive environments at flexible times.
The high-performance professional batteries have to meet different requirements depending on the area of activity and display different strengths in specific areas of application.
A wide range of equipment is required for working in private gardens.
Working with cordless tools in private gardens requires a wide range of power tools. All of the required tools can be operated with the AP System. As a general rule, each power tool is only used for a short time, so the battery life is more than sufficient.
When used in private gardens, the advantages of the easy-to-operate, flexible cordless power tools outweigh those of petrol-driven power tools, as they can be used without causing noise or unpleasant odours.
Powerful cordless chainsaws are suitable for tree maintenance.
For tree maintenance in private and public spaces, lightweight, flexible tools that can be operated quietly and without emissions are required. These handy cordless power tools really come into their own when it comes to maintenance trimming. The starting up without a starter cord is significantly faster and easier than with conventional petrol-driven power tools.
Leaves can be cleared up emission-free with cordless leaf blowers.
Garden maintenance for Private Wealth Customers, at banks and foundations, at cemeteries, in residential complexes, residential parks and schools involves some demanding requirements. Quiet, emission-free operation without unpleasant odours is particularly in demand here.
When it comes to noise and emission control, cordless power tools play to their strengths compared to petrol-driven power tools – both for customers and everyone in the working environment.
Powerful professional cordless technology from STIHL offers long battery life as well as smart energy and charge management. It can be used effectively for landscape, garden and tree maintenance as well as municipal work. Some professional batteries and cordless power tools are also manufactured in Germany.
The following table shows the operating hours of the professional batteries in the unit "up to ... minutes"1 for the chainsaws to give you a quick overview. The values for all other professional products can be found in our overview: Battery life and charging times (operating hours)

1 The stated battery life per charge and area specifications are approximate values and may vary depending on how the tool is used and what is being cut.
2 Energy content according to cell manufacturer specifications. The actual power capacity available during operation is lower in order to increase service life.
3 Recommended cutting attachment
4 Reduced tool performance
Please note that the battery operating times and area specifications for each battery charge are estimates and may vary depending on how the tool is used and what is being cut.
The AP 500 S sets new standards with its innovative power laminate technology. The unique and robust cells provide more power output and capacity. In addition, the technology enables twice the service life as well as twice the number of possible charging cycles compared to all other STIHL batteries.
With STIHL, the cordless fleet can be flexibly charged and easily kept track of. Whether in the workshop, in the office or on the road during operation – you will find the ideal charging solution for every requirement.
With STIHL connected you always have an overview of your networked power tools – even when you’re out and about. This makes it easier for you to stick to maintenance intervals – both for the safety of employees and to extend the service life of your tools. It also allows tools to be replaced on time when needed, minimising downtime.
The STIHL AR 2000 L and AR 3000 L backpack batteries and the STIHL AP 500 S and AP 300 S batteries can be connected and managed like a power tool via an integral Bluetooth® interface. This means that the duration of use and serial number can be viewed quickly in the STIHL connected App and in the STIHL connected Portal. The STIHL AP 300 S and AP 500 S batteries also enable evaluation of battery status data such as charging cycles, health status and – in the case of the AP 300 S – charge level.
