Equipment in detail

The new STIHL cordless brushcutters combine decades of power tool expertise with innovative electric motor and battery technology. The machines thus provide powerful cutting-edge technology in top-class STIHL quality, in every detail.

These features make trimming and cutting jobs comfortable, quiet and clean as well as reducing operator fatigue.

Lithium-Ion Battery

The powerful lithium-ion batteries with 80 and 160 Wh capacity respectively, combine with the electric motor (EC) to give the cordless brushcutters long running times and proportionately high cutting performance – up to 50 minutes or 250m² of lawn*, depending on the machine and the battery used. Straightforward release system for quick battery changing.

* The cordless brushcutter's running times per battery charge depend on the machine model, the battery selected, the type of grass and individual working styles.

AutoCut C 4-2 Mowing Head

The new machines are equipped with the AutoCut C 4-2 mowing head as standard. The 2.0 mm diameter low-noise mowing line is adjusted automatically by tapping the mowing head on the ground. Lawns with grass up to 20cm tall can be mown. Replacing the mowing line is very quick on this mowing head. There is no need to open up the mowing head to refill it – it is loaded from the outside.

Swath Diameter

The swath diameters of 300 mm (FSA 65) and 350 mm (FSA 85) are chosen so as to make optimum use of the available battery power.

Electronically controlled STIHL electric motor (EC)

The STIHL electric motor (EC) has no carbon brushes, virtually no mechanical wear and a convincing efficiency that far surpasses conventional electric motors. Stored energy is thus converted into power as effectively as possible. Another advantage: the high torque of the STIHL cordless brushcutters allows the cutting attachment to be driven directly without using a gearbox. The resulting weight saving contributes to the user's comfort.

Loop handle

The ergonomically shaped loop handle is quick and easy to adjust by means of a tommy screw, without requiring tools. The cordless brushcutters can thus be comfortably adjusted to the particular user's height for an optimum working stance at all times.

Locking Lever

The locking lever is a safety component used to lock the brushcutter. It prevents the machine starting up unintentionally when the battery pack is inserted.

Tool Guard

The tool guard is easy to fit, using just two screws. It provides effective protection from flying clippings while still allowing a clear view of the working area.

Hanging Loop

The cordless brushcutters can be hung on the wall by the practical hanging loop for space-saving storage.

Spacer Bar

The spacer bar makes it easier to mow around obstacles and to trim lawn edges. The spacer bar is supplied as standard with the FSA 85 and is available as a special accessory for the FSA 65.
