New brush cutter

STIHL expands  its range of professional high-performance brushcutters with the launch of the new FSA 135 and FSA 135 R.

STIHL has added two new brushcutters to its extensive range with the launch of the new FSA 135 and FSA 135R. The robust and powerful brushcutters build on the popularity of the FSA 130. They have  new compatibility with STIHL’s AP battery system making it ideal for contractors and grounds management tackling large areas of grass and brush. Each comes with a  variety of cutting attachments.

The FSA 135 bike handle brushcutter comes with the GrassCut 260-2 blade as standard. It has an expected working time of 100 minutes when used with the recommended AP 300 S battery. The FSA 135 R loop handle version comes with an AutoCut 26-2 line head. This has an expected working time of 45 minutes when used with an AP 300 S battery.

Cordless tools

The new cordless tools feature a traditional brushcutter layout from the petrol models, with engine, drive-shaft and gearbox. This means  the FSA 135 can fit metal cutting attachments designed for brush and wood.

Both models feature ergonomic control handles with three-level speed pre-selection with LED display. They also have variable trigger speed control for energy-efficient working and longer running times depending on the cutting attachment or conditions.

The FSA 135 and FSA 135 R can work in all weather conditions with waterproof components. The motor also requires little-to-no servicing, whilst the easy to clean air filter ensures a long service life and optimum engine cooling.

Both brushcutters feature a sturdy battery housing with a new design, enabling users to easily slot in a battery from STIHL’s high-performance 36V AP range, ideal for professional use. A range of accessories are available for both models, including Advanced Plus Harness, Advanced X-TREEm Harness and a wide range of line and metal cutting heads.
