Known for its power, durability and easy handling the STIHL 015 soon gained widespread popularity. In what perhaps was a precursor to STIHL’s very popular present-day Kombisystem, the 015 also had optional attachments that could allow it to become a brushcutter or hedge trimmer. Another feature that was added to the STIHL 015 AV was the anti-vibration system that STIHL had introduced in its professional saws in 1964. The incorporation of features and technology developed for professional models into homeowner models is a hallmark of STIHL manufacturing and leads some to claim that no matter what STIHL you buy, it’s a professional model.
