Standard

  • STIHL 2-MIX-Engine
    2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.
  • Basic harness
    For use with loop handle machines.
  • Loop handle (R)
    The loop handled grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs.
  • Simplified starting system
    Simply set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and away you go! The running machine then switches off after a brief press of the stop button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically. Thus the ignition is always ready for starting.
  • Manual fuel pump (Purger)
    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.

Optional

  • STIHL ErgoStart (E)
    STIHL ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.
  • ADVANCE Universal Harness
    Soft padding makes work more comfortable during longer jobs.
  • ADVANCE PLUS Universal harness
    With a comfort carry ring for quickly attaching an removing the clearing saw.
  • Shoulder strap / carrying system
    Using a STIHL shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.
  • An easy to use mowing head, with double line for mowing and thinning work. A new nylon line can be fitted easily by hand, without opening the mowing head.
