The benefits

Strong, enduring and resilient

  • Powerful cuts
    Immense power, maximum ease: The STIHL ASA 85 easily cuts through branches with a diameter of up to 45 mm. And because its power unit is so energetic, the blades open and close really quickly – delivering an excellent cutting performance.
  • An enduring performer
    A cut above the rest thanks to cordless power: The STIHL lithiumion battery, which is integrated into the carrying system, generates great power and inexhaustible stamina, meaning that the tool can be used for up to 8 hours. Needless to say, the cordless pruning shears perfectly fits into the STIHL battery modular concept. Other STIHL batteries* can therefore also be used with it.
  • A dependable partner
    Excellent workmanship leads to excellent results: The tool’s robust aluminium housing optimally protects its interior against particles of dirt, thereby ensuring a long service life.

* Recommended battery: AP 160 / AP 180

Efficient and convenient

  • A real all-rounder
    Through thick and thin at speed: The blade opening can be individually adjusted to four settings via the control unit: 50 %, 60 %, 70 % or 100 %. When working, you just have to quickly double-click the control lever to switch between the pre-set angle and the full blade opening, allowing branches of varying diameter to be cut in a highly effective and time-saving manner.
  • Everything under control
    A clear overview: The practical display on the control unit – which is worn at the user’s hip as part of the battery carrying system – provides information on the blade setting and number of cuts, along with the battery’s charge level. This is also where the user can switch between the proportional cut and a pulse cut setting.
  • Comfortable to use
    Light work: Thanks to its optimal weight distribution, the battery carrying system is gentle on the user’s back, even when the tool is used for hours on end. Loops on the shoulder straps mean that the connection lead is kept close to the body, no matter whether the user is right or left-handed. The tool’s ergonomic design also ensures ease of use.
