ADDING to its extensive range of clothes and toys specifically designed for young children who love the outdoors, Stihl has launched a battery-powered, fully functioning toy blower and brushcutter, giving young Stihl fans a child-friendly power tool experience.

Suitable for children from three years old, the design of the toy blower is based on Stihl’s popular BGA 57 machine, featuring three length adjustments to help keep the blower tube close to the ground for optimised blowing force. Not only does the trigger mechanism playfully reflect the operation of Stihl’s AK tools, but the toy blower also has a light blowing force for clearing a small amount of leaves, allowing kids to help out with regular garden tasks.

The new toy brushcutter is modelled on Stihl’s popular FSA 57, featuring length adjustment and an adjustable handle to suit any children’s height and give them the best user experience. Offering hours of fun in the garden, the new toy brushcutter has added blade lights during operation, giving a clear view of the cutting diameter for an accurate ‘cut’.

Both toy models feature cordless batteries that mimic Stihl’s professional lithium-ion range, which can easily be inserted into each machine and offers a power indicator gauge for an authentic cordless power tool experience.
