STIHL's lightest new generation strimmer.

With a modern appearance, impressively-lightweight design and easy starting, the FS 40 is every inch a state-of-the-art strimmer, ideal for everyday trimming tasks around the garden.

Reduced emissions, increased efficiency

Thanks to STIHL's 2-stroke engine technology, fuel consumption is reduced, particularly during the charge cycle where a lot of fuel is often lost. This also results in lower weight and more power, as well as significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

Simplified starting, every time

The number of steps needed to start the machine has been drastically reduced and the frustration of a flooded engine virtually eliminated. As well as this, a manual fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button, reducing the number of starting strokes after extended breaks in operation.

Comfortable to use, everyday

With a multi-function control handle, easy, thumb-operated control is within reach, with your hand never having to leave the handle. The bent shaft design with loop handle is perfect for trimming small areas of grass and around obstacles.

Additional mowing line is available

Whilst the strimmer does come with some line so it's ready to use as soon as it arrives, additional line, oil, and replacement heads can be purchased separately.
