USING AND MIXING FUEL

Perhaps the most important aspect of owning a petrol STIHL Hedge Trimmer is ensuring that the right fuel is being used in the engine. You can either choose to use STIHL Motomix, which is premixed fuel designed specifically for your STIHL engine, or you may opt for mixing gasoline and engine oil.

When mixing gasoline and oil, the correct ratio is 50:1 (i.e. 50 parts of gasoline to 1 part of engine oil). We recommend using STIHL HP Ultra Engine Oil as it is of exceptional quality and manufactured with STIHL engines explicitly in mind.

CLEANING, MAINTENANCE & STORAGE

Plant debris and sap can often get trapped in between the blades of a Hedge Trimmer, which can then bind them and damage your machine. We recommend using a lubricant before and after use to make sure this doesn't happen. Over time, your blades will lose their edge and must be sharpened, this can be done at your local STIHL SHOP, or at home.

Routine servicing is imperative for the longevity of your Hedge Trimmer. Ensure you make the most of your first free service, and follow up with regular servicing.
