New look Stihl Shop one year on

The Tribune (NZ) - - TERRACE END -

Hav­ing just cel­e­brated one year in their new premises Stihl Shop Palmer­ston North owner Robin Adling­ton is ex­tremely pleased with how suc­cess­ful the year has been.

‘‘With our much larger show­room we are now able to dis­play all our prod­ucts in­clud­ing our large ‘rideons’, which gives plenty of room for our cus­tomers to view them and get a feel for the dif­fer­ent prod­ucts.’’

De­spite the flood of out­door power equip­ment com­ing on the mar­ket, Robin and the team be­lieve in qual­ity.

Sales and Service Man­ager Mark De­trey says: ‘‘The ini­tial cost may be more but we want our cus­tomers to know that they can rely on our prod­ucts. With reg­u­lar ser­vic­ing and gen­eral main­te­nance in our service de­part­ment, th­ese prod­ucts will go on do­ing a qual­ity job for years.’’

Robin says that the move has also meant their service de­part­ment has ex­panded and they have re­cently taken on two new trainees to cope with de­mand.

‘‘Due to the wet sum­mer and au­tumn, all out­door equip­ment, espe­cially mow­ers, have had a good deal of use and to cope with this ex­tra grass growth it pays to keep the blades sharp­ened and the ma­chine reg­u­larly ser­viced,’’ Mark says.

The wet weather has also meant many cus­tomers are look­ing at up­grad­ing their equip­ment and Mark says that Stihl cur­rently has a pro­mo­tion where you will re­ceive an up­grade on se­lected chain­saws and hedge trim­mers.

While petrol power re­mains a pop­u­lar op­tion many cus­tomers are now turn­ing to the Stihl bat­tery range of power tools, not only be­cause of their convenience but, as Mark says, ‘‘th­ese tools are gen­er­ally lighter and eas­ier to han­dle. They are ready for in­stant use with no need for fuel or power leads, they are much qui­eter and recharg­ing only takes about an hour. An­other im­por­tant fea­ture is that once you have pur­chased the bat­tery pack it can eas­ily be switched be­tween all the other tools in that range’’.

Stihl has just re­leased a sec­ond range of cord­less equip­ment. If you’re think­ing of go­ing elec­tric or you just need to up­grade your ex­ist­ing equip­ment then call in and talk to the ex­perts while you take a look around the ex­ten­sive range of qual­ity power equip­ment at Stihl Shop Palmer­ston North, 711 Main St, in Ter­race End.
