Combined with the fastest charger in the Stihl line, the AR 900 gives professional users a viable alternative to gasoline-powered equipment, especially in noise and environmentally sensitive areas. Make an impact on the landscape without the carbon footprint. The Stihl AR 900 backpack battery powers all handheld products in the Stihl Battery KombiSystem and delivers the extended product run times that Stihl says professionals have been asking for—up to several hours—increasing the size of jobs that can be tackled efficiently.
The battery weighs about 15 pounds, and the comfortable shoulder straps, hip belt and chest strap distribute the weight evenly, reducing operator fatigue. The operator can use the LED indicator lights to check battery charge status before starting a job. No more running out of power halfway through the job. The batteries can be charged several hundred times with no depletion to charge hold. Also, there is a complete elimination of fuel cost, which will save landscapers money at the pump.
Stihl battery-powered equipment combines performance, portability and convenience in one environmentally conscious package. One battery, multiple tools. Each tool in this battery system is powered by Stihl Lithium-Ion technology, delivering long run times with no gradual drop in power. One of the newest additions to the Stihl Battery KombiSystem product line, the HLA 65 extended reach hedge trimmer can run for up to 11 hours when used with the AR 900. Other tools in the line include trimmers, a handheld blower, a hedge trimmer and chain saws.
