Stunning strimmer with proven power

POWERFUL performance for farm, forestry and landscape work, is how Stihl labels its latest FS250 brushcutter.

The strimmer is powered by a 40cc engine with a manual fuel primer and improved air filter system designed to allow reliable start ups.

Further features of the engine include a fuel compensator to control the air-fuel mixture and, as a result,maintain a constant rpm.

The FS250 is fitted with cow-horn handles to allow a smooth and even cutting action to be achieved, while a rigid driveshaft is claimed to provide a long working life.

Price for the brushcutter is £575. (01635-248955)
