A versatile 1.7kW bike-handled petrol brushcutter from STIHL.
This is a highly durable, robust, versatile and ergonomically enhanced tool, perfect for agricultural and horticultural mowing tasks.
Powerful & capable 2-MIX engine
STIHL's 2-MIX engine uses fuel efficient, low emission technology. With stratified charge, a fuel-free layer of air is made between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the fuel lost during the charge cycle. This also results in more power and a lower weight for the machine. A large fuel tank with a volume of 0.75 litres ensures longer working intervals, less broken up by fuel stops. The machine is easy to refuel through a large, accessible fuel tank.
Easy to start & operate
With STIHL's ErgoStart system, the effort required to start the tool is cut in half, with the starter cord also able to be pulled at just one third of the normal force. The starting system has been simplified, with the user only required to set the choke, pump the fuel primer and pull the starter cord. The machine is then switched off with a brief press of the stop button, at which point the ignition activates again automatically, so is always ready for starting. A winter setting on the machine allows you to prevent the air filter and carburettor from freezing, while a multi-function control handle places all controls within easy reach.
Comfortable to use
Because of the bike handle system, a smooth mowing action is made easier when used in conjunction with a harness. The machine can be easily guided, so is ideal for working on large areas. With anti-vibration technology also built in, the engine's oscillations are dampened, reducing vibration at the handles and minimising fatigue from long periods of use.
