Grass Trimmer, FS240
The NEW FS 240 bike handle brushcutter is a new generation machine featuring stratified scavenging engine technology which reduces fuel consumption by up to 20% and fullfils all emission regulations. Equipped with a gear head angle of 30° and a simplified starting procedure with momentary stop switch, this unit replaces the legendary FS 250 and is ideal for landscapers in all professional applications.
|Power output (kW/bhp)||1.7 / 2.3|
|Weight (kg / lbs) 1)||6.9 / 15.2|
2-stroke reduced-emission engine technology
2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.
When used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle enables a smooth mowing action. The bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, making it ideal for working on large areas and thus reducing fatigue.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
