STIHL petrol chainsaws prove themselves day
after day, year after year.
Whether working deep in a forest, in a park,
landscaping, contracting or in your own garden,
a Stihl chainsaw will not let you down.
With a full range of saws from lightweight all-
rounders, to powerful workhorses, there's one
for every job.
And all combine Stihl's legendary reliability
with world-leading technology and operator com-
Whether a storm has hit your property, low
hanging limbs are making it a challenge to mow,
or you're ready to start using firewood to heat
your home, choosing the right chainsaw can help
ensure you get the job done quickly, efficiently,
With 30 Stihl models to choose from, you have
a lot of options.
But by using these five considerations, you can
quickly narrow down your choices.
1. Size of job: Stihl offers a wide range of chain-
saws, designed for different-sized jobs. Remem-
ber that if you feel the job might be beyond your
knowledge and experience, hiring a professional
will be your best choice.
2. Type of job: Are you trimming limbs? Felling
a tree? Cleaning up storm damage? Stihl not only
offers 30 models of chainsaws, there are also sev-
eral types of guide bars and cutting chains.
3. Frequency of use: Should you only need your
chainsaw for occasional limb removal or light fell-
ing, one of Stihl’s homeowner chainsaws may be
enough. However, if you require more significant
cutting on a regular basis, you may want to check
out a landowner range.
4. Source of Power: Stihl offers petrol-powered,
electric and battery-powered chainsaws. Choose
your chainsaw based on your requirements for
mobility, ease of starting, weight, as well as initial
and ongoing costs.
5. Number of Options: As a leader in chainsaw
technology innovation, Stihl offers a variety of val-
ue-added options that can provide enhanced per-
formance and additional comfort. Some of these
features include Stihl Easy2Start, automatic bar
and chain oiling, and the quick chain adjuster.
Marriotts MPE in Leongatha has the knowledge
and expertise to help you find the best saw for
your needs and to ensure that you have the ap-
propriate accessories and protective apparel to
get the job done right.
Like all Stihl dealers, the team at Marriotts
MPE are outdoor power equipment specialists.
They can offer advice in choosing the right
products for your needs, and can service what
When you buy from Marriotts MPE, you are
guaranteed genuine STIHL products, parts and
accessories - no cheap imitations.
IT’S now or never to improve the entrance
of Phillip Island.
That’s the view of Deborah Holland, who’s
part of the Phillip Island and San Remo En-
trance Working Group.
And she stresses it’s just that – a “work” in
progress to improve the landscaping of Phil-
lip Island and San Remo.
But it needs support from council.
She says people feel quite let down when
they drive over the bridge.
“It’s about creating a welcome to tourists
and a welcome home to locals,” she said.
“Do we want Phillp Island to send the mes-
sage that we are yet another suburb?
“Or do we want to be telling people that you
are actually arriving on an island and you’re
entering a special place?”
Deborah says there’s widespread support
for improvements to the entrance, as people
have been talking about it for 15 to 20 years.
“Pretty much everyone thinks it’s a great
idea,” she told councillors at a budget sub-
missions hearing on Wednesday.
“It’d be very sad to see it not pursued.”
The State Government announced funding
earlier this year for a new dual lane round-
about, at the intersection of Phillip Island
Road and Back Beach Road on Phillip Island.
“That’s leaping ahead,” Deborah said of the
project. “We want to try and make sure that
it’s not all just concrete and cement.
“VicRoads is looking for council to show
that they’re actually willing to support them
in creating something that’s a bit different.
“It has huge possibilities.
“It’s now or never, and I hope it’s now.”
She said the project would bring together
the communities of San Remo and Newhaven.

A Stihl for any job
LOCAL emergency service

funding through the Volunteer

ment Program (VESEP), with

program was open to the Coun-
try Fire Authority, Victorian
State Emergency Service and
Life Saving Victoria, along with
marine search and rescue pro-
viders and other organisations
identified in the Emergency
Management Manual Victoria.
“Volunteers such as our ded-
icated fire fighters and SES
members, for example, are the
backbone of our communities
and they should be provided
with the best equipment and
training available,” Ms Bath
VESEP funding will contrib-
ute $2 for every $1 of funding
from the local volunteer group
up to a maximum of $150,000
“The VESEP grants can
be used to fund operational
equipment, including new ve-
hicles, trucks, light and me-
dium tankers, trailers, water-
craft, vessels and engines, or
funding can be put towards
ments,” she said.
“Emergency service groups
are invaluable to our com-
munity and up-to-date equip-
ment, facilities and training
help save lives.
“I strongly encourage our lo-
cal emergency service organi-
sations to apply and will gladly
offer my support for anyone
doing so,” Ms Bath said.
For more information and to
apply, local groups would need
to visit the Volunteer Emer-
gency Services Equipment
Program at www.emv.vic.gov.
