Standard features

  • Electronic ignition module

    This ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running. The ignition system is fully encapsulated and thus proof against damp and dirt.

  • Manual fuel pump (Purger)

    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.

  • Bike handle

    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.

  • Basic harness

    For use with loop handle machines.

  • Multi-function control handle

    Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.

The version(s) available in each country may differ from the above range and specifications; specific details may be subject to change without notice. Please ask your local STIHL Approved Dealer for further information.
