STIHL Offers Battery Power Cost Calculators

New tools reveal the costs of switching to battery-powered tools and charging them over time.

How do small businesses and contractors make the switch to battery without knowing the hard cost and cost savings in the long run? They can’t. The bottom line is everything and they do not have to luxury to guess. There is so much hesitancy and nerves around switching to battery because there is so much unknown.

Which is why STIHL has created resources to comfort the landscaper who is considering switching, or even the one that is being forced into switching to lower emission or quieter options.

Easily accessible on the STIHL website, are two new tools the landscaper/contractor can use for FREE:

Calculator for Battery Power Savings:
This calculator tells the business owner how much gas they use in a year and how much they would SAVE if they could switch to battery operations. It compares the cost of electricity and charging costs compared to gasoline.

Battery Charging Costs:
Little know the cost savings battery fleets can provide. This chart provides the projected annual cost to fully charge each battery every day for a year according to recent national average electricity prices for residential customers. So business owners can know exactly how much they will be charged to charge. Spoiler: they’re going to like what they see.

STIHL has and will continue to work hard to ensure their customers are confident and informed about the switch to battery. To help ease the hesitant landscaper, share these tools in your next battery story. And where should they start? The STIHL professional line of battery products are gasoline comparable and have plenty of power, especially when partnered with the new most powerful AP 500 S battery with lithium ion technology (exclusive to STIHL).
