You’ll find nothing but quality components in all STIHL grass trimmers for the home. These aren’t your typical trimmers – they feature streamlined, ergonomic designs, unyielding performance and durable parts made to last year after year. Here are a few of the features you’ll find on every gasoline-powered STIHL grass and weed trimmer:

  • Multi-Function Control Handle delivers easy access to ON/OFF and throttle controls on one comfortable handle. This makes it easy to use without the operator’s hand ever leaving the handle. Some models feature a momentary stop switch, ensuring the switch is “ON” the next time you start – helping to prevent engine flooding.
  • Adjustable Front Handle can be positioned for optimal comfort.
  • Fuel-Efficient Engine runs longer on a tank of gasoline, reducing fuel costs.

  • Easy-View Deflector provides easy-to-see cutting and is also designed to protect user against flying debris.
  • Electronic Ignition provides easier starting and smoother running.

  • Smooth Edges will not snag on clothing or brush.

  • Protected Choke Lever/Knob helps prevent damage.

  • Purge Pump Primer enables the user to prime the carburetor with fuel, providing easier starts.
