STIHL FSA 85

The low-noise operation of the STIHL FSA 85 lets you take professional trimming jobs farther than before. This STIHL Lithium-Ion-powered trimmer is five times quieter than the STIHL gasoline-powered equivalent, making it ideal for densely populated or noise-sensitive areas. The STIHL FSA 85 also eliminates exhaust emissions and fuel costs, all without the confines of a power cord. The variable speed trigger allows the operator to control the cutting speed around delicate plantings, and the instant start up trigger simplifies spot trimming jobs. Run time may vary based on battery type, charge level and capacity, model, operating style and conditions. Batteries and chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.
