STIHL Battery System
Q: How long will the Battery last?
A: The recommended AP 200 Battery will last up to 144 minutes, this does depend on what is being cut and how the tool is being used.
Q: How long does it take to charge?
A: To fully charge an AP 200 Battery it takes 55 minutes, or to charge it up to 80%, it takes 40 minutes with the AL 300 charger.
Q: Are the Batteries Interchangeable?
A: Yes, all of the tools in the PRO Cordless System use the same style of battery. There are 7 different batteries in the range, which all have different capacities. For the HLA 86, we recommend the mediul capacity AP 200 battery as it provides the pertect balance between wieght and power, but you can use any of the other batteries in this range.
Q: Does the performance of the Battery reduce as it depletes?
A: No there is no gradual drop in performance – the battery runs at full power until it is fully depleted.
Q: Will the blades need sharpening?
A: Keeping the blades sharp will give a neat cut on whatever you are trimming. If you notice that the blades are getting jammed easily or the machine is struggling, the blades may need sharpening. Our STIHL SHOP retailers can do this for you.
Q: What should I wear when using this tool?
A: We recommend that you wear snug-fitting clothes, eye protection, gloves and sturdy boots or shoes, and tie back long hair.
