AR 3000 Backpack Battery

AR 3000 Backpack Battery
A high-capacity backpack battery delivering gasoline-powered performance to the STIHL Battery-Powered Equipment line. One battery powers multiple tools with run times up to 13 hours.* (*HSA 66)

Product Description

Professionals get gasoline-powered performance from their STIHL Battery-Powered Equipment with the 36-volt, 1148 watt-hour AR 3000 backpack battery. This sleek, high-performance battery has 25% more capacity than the AR 900 and powers multiple tools in the battery-powered line. Equipped with numerous features for the demanding professional like audible and visual recharge alerts, rain guard, sturdy housing and durable base plate, the AR 3000 is ergonomically designed to shift the weight of the battery from the tool to the back and shoulders. Recharging to 100% capacity takes only 2.67 hours when used with the AL 500 Rapid Charger - five times faster than many other backpack batteries on the market. Eliminate exhaust emissions, fuel and oil costs, reduce noise, and increase productivity and profitability with the most powerful battery in the STIHL line.

AR 3000 Backpack Battery is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Costly, but sets a new standard for lithium ion performance Purchased two of the AR 3000 backpack batteries. They are durable, carried with relative ease, and deliver extended performance times from the string trimmer and blower I use for hours daily. They provide me with the ability to work in an emission-free environment, freeing me from health problems caused by emissions from the two- and four-cycle gas powered equipment I have used for decades. The price tag was hard to swallow, but good health is priceless. I will be purchasing another of these packs in the near future.
