As grass trimmers start to get pulled out of garden sheds, ready to trim back the spring growth, now is a good time to carry out some tool maintenance checks and make sure you're kitted up so you can work smart and work safe.
STIHL offers a wide choice of protective and work clothing, specifically designed for your garden and outdoor tasks. Protective clothing, known in the trade as ‘PPE' (Personal Protective Equipment), ranges from ear and eye protectors to protective trousers, so we can keep you covered literally from top to bottom!
Chain saw protective chaps and trousers for example, are a fundamental requirement for chain saw use and prices start at $169 for the Homeowner protective chaps which are recommended for occasional users of a chain saw. Visit our product pages for full details on our chain saw protective clothing or talk to your local STIHL Dealer.
It's not just chain saw users that need to protect themselves at work. If you use a grass trimmer or brushcutter for example, particularly in long grass, our special brushcutter trousers incorporate protective blocking material to the front of the leg in case any debris flies up like hidden stones. New to this year's range our FS Protect brushcutter trousers are priced at just $149 – they are not only smart but also comfortable for everyday outdoor wear.
Protective glasses, work gloves, even smart STIHL base layers to wear under your work clothes – there's something to suit most budgets and all your outdoor work tasks. Browse our range here or visit your local STIHL Dealer to try the kit for yourself.
