Product Details

Stihl FSA 85 Cordless Brush Cutter (Power Unit)

Stihl are industry leaders in the gardening machinery world, so it is no surprise therefore, that they should present us with a stunning range of high tech cordless brush cutters. This FSA 85 cordless brush cutter is a great example of outstanding technology that offers the user a quieter, easier and more sustainable way of gardening. Setting a precedent amongst other manufacturers, Stihl presents you with an entire range of cordless garden machinery that has been specifically designed to use the same powerful 36v Lithium-Ion battery.

The 36v Lithium-Ion battery is not a work in progress, it comes to you fully functioning, packed with first-rate features and state of the art technology. Once the battery is charged it will not lose any of its charge whilst in storage. A clever LED display lets you know when it is low on power as you work. The battery has been securely weather proofed; therefore an unexpected shower of rain will not stop you from getting those essential gardening jobs completed.

Free from the constraints of requiring power as you work you can literally take this cordless brush cutter anywhere. The motor is quieter, cleaner and longer lasting than a petrol motor. It has less moving parts and therefore is virtually maintenance free. Stihl suggest that this cordless brush cutter is so quiet that it is ideal for working in noise-sensitive areas such as parks, schools, hospitals or other public spaces.

We believe the D loop handle offers the user great control and comfort, and while this may not be a brand new feature, Stihl know when they are on to a good thing, so why change something that already works so well? The hanging loop is so useful, especially if you are pressed for space. Hang it up or store it safely at the back of your shed to save space. The safety locking button is essential as this Stihl cordless brush cutter is so easy to start once the battery is inserted - and Stihl want to make their products as easy to use as possible.

This Stihl cordless brush cutter has a practical spacer bracket for mowing around obstacles such as trees and bushes. Light and powerful, it features an easy to use Auto cut C4-2 nylon line mowing head and extended cutting circle for thinning work and mowing smaller areas. The latest Stihl technology features a mowing head direct drive and a design that minimises air drag. Combined with the power of the 36v Lithium-Ion battery you are guaranteed a powerful cutting performance on grass up to a height of 20cm/8". Quite simply, this FSA 85 offers you a simple, easy to manage tool to keep your grass under control.

Stihl FSA 65 Cordless brush cutter features:

  • Safety locking button
    All STIHL battery products have a locking button with which you can lock the device. This prevents the grass trimmer starting unintentionally when a live battery is inserted.
  • Hanging loop
    Hang your cordless brushcutter securely on a wall to save space using the loop in the handle housing.
  • STIHL Electric Motor (EC)
    The STIHL electric motor (EC) is extremely energy efficient, lightweight and compact. It runs quietly, generates very low vibrations and does not require servicing.
  • Handle
    With the thumb screw, the pre-assembled, ergonomic loop handle can be adjusted to the desired position without tools.

Stihl 56v cordless system features

The Stihl cordless power system offers you simple convenience with great performance. The quiet, exhaust-free, battery power allows full freedom of movement while carrying out gardening tasks and ground maintenance. Feel the power of this flexible range, simply charge the battery, insert it into the machine and press the start button. Innovative lithium-ion power packs are at the heart of STIHL cordless power tools. They deliver plenty of power and a high energy density. What’s more, they can be charged in a very short time, have no memory effect and fit all types of cordless power tools.

Regardless of whether you’re building with wood, sawing firewood, moving the lawn, trimming lawn edges, cutting bushes or getting rid of dirt, sweepings or leaves, cordless power tools from STIHL make light work of all sorts of gardening jobs.
