New FS 94 R Bruschcutter

STIHL Introduces its Lightest Brushcutter Ever

Weighing only 4.6 kg (10 pounds), the STIHL
FS 94 R 2-stroke brushcutter arrives just in time for Spring to give professionals a great everyday landscaping tool that delivers one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its class.

"It's amazing so much power can come from a tool that is so light," said Greg Quigg, President of STIHL Limited. "STIHL's engineering team has developed a real winner. The FS 94 R is great for manoeuvering around hills, landscaping stones and other terrain."

Combined with a high-powered, low exhaust emission engine and anti-vibration system, the FS 94 R offers dependable performance with variable speed control. Its innovative control handle features an ECOSPEED throttle set wheel, allowing you to set the most effective throttle speed for a specific application, such as low throttle around delicate plants.

"It's the kind of brushcutter that will appeal to the most demanding professional landscapers," adds Quigg. "The lightweight and compact design also makes it comfortable to operate over long intervals."

The FS 94 R is equipped with STIHL's new stratified scavenging engine technology that reduces fuel consumption by 20 per cent and fulfils all emission regulations. Getting started with this tool will be easy with its semi-automatic choke lever; hit the throttle and the lever returns to normal operating position.

Only available at STIHL Authorized Dealers, the MSRP is $429.95.
