    hi,

    I purchased a Stihl Arborist helmet the other day and it does not come with ear muffs.

    What are you suggesting I purchase in terms of ear muffs?

    I have this exact helmet, love it! You will have to call Whoever you get your stuff from, I called treestuff, I explained that it was a Kask Helmet, and I couldn’t attach my muffs, they actually sent me out a pair of adapters that screw in, and than I use 3m Peltor muffs, they hook right up. I’d recommend a dif ear muff tho, see what fits for the Kask Hi Viz helmets. Hope this helps.

    How often do you have the change the shield?

    One of our part time climbers has a shield like that and he can barely see through it now because of all the scratches.

    It has scratches, but I can still see outta pretty well. I haven’t had any issues with it, I do try to clean it, I thought about using a scratch protector on it, I used to use the stuff on my half shields in hockey, worked well. Maybe suggest a protectant. Haven’t had to switch it out yet. Thank Goodness, that would get pricey lol.
