That is why you need a tool like the FS 40 Grass Trimmer to help with those finishing touches to make your lawn look neatly manicured. Ideal for home use, this petrol grass trimmer is lightweight to use and whilst having low emissions it is still incredibly powerful.
Featuring the highly efficient STIHL 2-MIX engine technology, the FS 40 Grass Trimmer is a tool that you can rely on time and time again. With a simple starting system, you can get cracking straight away by trimming the small areas of your grass and lawn edges. The ergonomically designed round handle not only offers exceptional comfort but also gives the user ultimate control. Making it nice and easy to manoeuvre the grass trimmer into tight spaces where your lawnmower is unable to reach.
Low Emission Engine
Any garden equipment that uses petrol generally gives off high fuel emissions, but STIHL has integrated their groundbreaking 2-stroke engine into the FS 40 Grass Trimmer. This amazing concept uses a stratified charge to power up the engine. By creating a fuel-free layer of air between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, less fuel is required to start the engine. In essence, the finished result is more power with a lower weight, as well as 20% lower fuel consumption. What’s not to like?!
Simplified Starting System
At the touch of a button, you can easily deliver fuel to the carburettor (the device that mixes air and fuel to begin the combustion process). Therefore fewer starting strokes are required to bring the FS 40 Grass Trimmer back to life after a brief pause in operation. Less manual intervention is required so you can focus on the task at hand rather than exhausting yourself before trimming has even started!
The starting system itself is nice and easy to use as well. All you need to do is set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and you are ready to get trimming! For added safety a quick touch of the stop button the running machine turns off. The great thing is that you don’t have to go through the 3-step starting process after having a quick break, as the ignition activates again automatically – meaning it is always ready for starting.
Designed For Easy Use
Featuring a bent shaft with a loop handle, the FS 40 Grass Trimmer is designed in a way that reduces fatigue for the user. The control handle itself is multi-functional which allows the user to operate the trimmer with their thumb, so their hand never has to leave the handle. STIHL have thought of every small detail to make this grass trimmer simple and easy to use, backed up with powerful technology.
