As the replacement to the STIHL AR 900 backpack battery, the AR 2000 offers premium comfort, including an ergonomic hip belt and chest strap that evenly distributes the weight of the battery, reducing operator fatigue. Using the backpack battery with its power cable connected directly to the equipment takes the weight of the battery off the unit. The removal of the onboard battery and addition of the high performance cable connecting system shifts handheld weight from the equipment to the back or hip.

The AR 2000 is both practical and “smart” as it comes equipped with built-in sensors and microprocessors that monitor temperature and automatically shut down the battery if it overheats. The backpack battery comes equipped with numerous features like audible and visual recharge alerts, rain cover, sturdy housing and durable base plate.

The AR 2000 provides quiet and emission-free operation, allowing users to work at times and on job sites not accessible to traditional gas-powered equipment due to noise and exhaust regulations. Recharging the AR 2000 to 100% capacity takes only 130 minutes when used with the STIHL AL 500 high-speed charger.
