If you need help with maintenance for your Stihl power tool, contact your local Koenig Equipment Service Department to schedule an appointment with a trained technician.
What maintenance does Stihl gas-powered equipment need?
Regular maintenance is a requirement to keep gas-powered Stihl equipment running smoothly and efficiently. Common maintenance tasks for gas-powered Stihl equipment include:
- Engine oil: Review and follow the operator’s guide for recommendations on how often to change engine oil. Fresh engine oil keeps the engine lubricated to run smoothly.
- Fuel filter: Check and replace the filter if it becomes clogged to keep the fuel clean and free from contamination.
- Air filter: Regularly clean or replace the air filter to keep dirt from entering the engine.
- Fuel line: Look over the fuel line for any cracks or leaks and replace it if necessary.
- Spark plug: Regularly check the spark plug and replace it if showing wear.
- Carburetor: Inspect and clean the carburetor regularly to make sure it functions correctly and continues to provide the correct fuel-to-air mixture to the engine.
- Muffler: Check the muffler for clogs or damage.
What maintenance does Stihl battery-powered equipment need?
While battery-powered Stihl equipment requires less maintenance, that doesn't mean there aren't areas that need to be checked routinely. Routine maintenance points should include the following:
- Battery: Make sure the battery is fully charged before use, and never allow it to be completely discharged. This can damage the battery and shorten its lifespan. When not in use, make sure the batter is clean, and store it in a cool, dry place.
- Cleaning: Dirt and build-up can affect performance. Regularly clean your Stihl tool to remove any dirt, debris, or other build-up that collects during use.
- Blades: If your battery-powered equipment has blades, check, and replace them once they become dull or damaged.
