STIHL offers a wide range of cutting tools for different applications, from simple mowing jobs to clearing jobs − designed to handle different types of vegetation, of course. Each tool type is designed for the use demanding the highest cutting performance. That, however, does not mean that the same tool cannot also be used for simpler jobs: a brush knife, for example, can easily be used to cut weeds as well. Ask your STIHL dealer for further advice. The various cutting tools may only be used in combination with the corresponding guard.
