STIHL has launched a range of service kits for petrol handheld tools that enable professional and domestic owners to carry out simple routine engine maintenance themselves, increasing their tools reliability and longevity.

Stihls service kits contain everything needed to carry out routine servicing on a Stihl petrol hand held power tool engine. The service kits include an air filter, spark plug and fuel filter, and additional items depending on the specific machine.

The kits also come with a QR code and short URL so users can quickly access how-to videos to give them step-by-step instructions for replacing the air filter, spark plug and fuel filter.

23 variants of service kit are available, covering the most popular Stihl petrol chainsaws, brushcutters, blowers, pole pruners, hedge trimmers, cut off saws and earth augers.

In addition to professional and domestic users, the new service kits can also be used in-store by Stihl approved dealers, making the process of ordering and carrying out a service quicker and more cost-effective.
