The new cordless brushcutters provide top-class cordless cutting performance with innovative lithium ion technology to make them portable, clean and quiet. Practical details, like the loop handle which can be adjusted without tools for optimum machine set-up and control, and straightforward operation via the switch lever, provide tangible ergonomics and are very advantageous for the user. As well as user comfort, these features enable trimming and cutting to be carried out in noise-sensitive places like residential areas, parks or institutions without disturbing anyone.
Simply great power – the STIHL electric motor (EC)
The STIHL FSA 65 and FSA 85 cordless brushcutters are equipped with a brushless, electronically controlled (EC) electric motor. Developed by STIHL, this motor is very energy-efficient and wear-free. It makes very effective use of the battery power and its high efficiency converts it directly into impressive cutting performance.
Mobile, clean and quiet
The lithium ion batteries are the power behind the new cordless brushcutters. Available in two performance classes: AP 80 with 80 Wh and AP 160 with 160 Wh, they permit portability without fuel and quiet operation with no cable.
Handy and ergonomic
Both machines are low-vibration, quiet running and perfectly balanced, very maneuverable and easy to control. That enables trimming, for instance, even in confined spaces and between bushes to be carried out quickly and effortlessly.
Simple and low-maintenance
Starting and operating the STIHL cordless brushcutters is easy and reliable with the aid of the locking lever and switch lever. In addition, the speed of the FSA 85 is infinitely adjustable. Changing the battery in the brushcutter and on the charger takes no time at all. The smooth surfaces shrug off dirt and are easy to clean. When the work is done, the brushcutters can be hung up out of the way on the wall by the hanging loop.
