A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

If your dad is like my husband, they LOVE tools as gifts! My husband is continually telling me he doesn't have enough for working on cars, tools for fixing things around the house, tools for outdoor yard work. (even though he has tool boxes and a garage FULL of tools!) :)

So, if you are looking for great gift idea that will definitely get used, head to your local STIHL dealer and consider the PH 80 Hedge Shears! We love the pair we received from STIHL for review. They definitely are made from quality material and will keep our yard and landscape looking great...without a whole lot of effort!

The STIHL PH 80 hedge shear delivers exact precision for those delicate trimming jobs. With its 9” blade and elongated handle design, you have greater control over every cut. The blades feature a hard chrome-plated finish and are specially designed for high strength, corrosion resistance and sap resistance. When every inch counts, count on STIHL to make the cut.

Check out these other STIHL tools that are great gifts for dads this summer:

STIHL RMA 370 Battery Powered Mower

The new for 2013 STIHL RMA 370 battery powered, walk-behind lawnmower expands the versatility of the STIHL Battery KombiSystem, which allows you to use multiple tools with one easily interchangeable battery. With no gas or exhaust emission, you’ll enjoy less mess and no fumes. The mower starts with the push of a button and a pull of the switch lever, eliminating the headache of pulling starter cords.

The RMA is ideal for small yards and noise-restricted urban areas. If you can’t get all of the grass cut in one battery charge (can cover up to 3,200 square feet on a single charge), think of all the other activities dad can claim as “yardwork” in the 30 minutes it takes to recharge the battery with the optional rapid charger. Clean up and storage is just as simple as mowing the grass. The easy-to-empty grass catcher holds up to 10.5 gallons of clippings and the mower handle folds for easy transport and storage.

STIHL Battery KombiSystem

Mobile, quiet and powerful, the full line of STIHL Battery KombiSystem products are powered by advanced 36-volt lithium-ion battery technology for environmentally responsible landscaping with professional results. No mixing fuel, no exhaust emissions, no power cords, just pull the trigger and go. One battery powers all products: STIHL MSA 160 C-BQ chain saw, BGA 85 blower, FSA 65 and FSA 85 string trimmers, HSA 65 hedge trimmer, and HLA 65 extended reach hedge trimmer and the RMA 370 walk behind lawn mower. Packed with the power and precision to help cut job times as fast as they cut fuel costs.

STIHL FS 50 C-E trimmer

The STIHL FS 50 C-E is a great value to homeowners, because it delivers trimming power and performance that is 20 percent more fuel efficient than the previous model (STIHL FS 46). It also has a long curved shaft, which is a more comfortable fit for taller users. Ergonomic, fuel efficient and environmentally responsible, the FS 50 C-E is a great choice for those seeking an affordable, lightweight trimmer.

The STIHL FS 50 C-E also features the Easy2Start™ system that eliminates the need for a strong pull of the starting cord to make starting almost effortless. The momentary stop switch automatically returns to the start position, simplifying the starting process and reducing the chance of flooding the engine.

STIHL MS 250 Chain Saw

Packed with more than 100 features, the STIHL MS 250 is designed to give owners years of powerful, efficient performance. STIHL is the only chain saw manufacturer that makes its own saw chain and guide bars, resulting in a matched cutting system, which on the STIHL MS 250 features a .325 pitch chain that has a longer running life, is more resistant to wear, and features a STIHL ROLLOMATIC® Ematic™ guide bar providing precise, efficient oiling.


The STIHL BG 86 handheld blower features a fuel-efficient, low-exhaust-emission gasoline-powered engine. This compact professional blower is packed with power and equipped with a four-spring anti-vibration system, a soft-grip handle and an ElastoStart™ shock-absorbing starter handle making it one of the most comfortable handheld blowers.

Both flat and round nozzle attachments come standard, and the BG 86 is compatible with other optional accessories to further increase job versatility. The STIHL gutter attachment fits quickly on the BG 86 handheld blower and can extend to more than ten feet, providing the additional extension needed to reach most residential gutters. With the STIHL Vacuum Kit, users can also convert the blower into a vacuum to pick up and empty debris.

Buy It: You can purchase all STIHL tools from your local STIHL dealer.
