2019 STIHL FSA 65


FSA 65



Our Lithium-Ion battery-powered trimmer manicures your yard - while eliminating exhaust emissions and power cords.

Trim your yard and your carbon footprint. The FSA 65 grass trimmer uses a 36-volt battery for zero-exhaust emission performance that is amazingly quiet and lightweight. The trimmer utilizes STIHL Lithium-Ion technology, eliminating the need for gasoline, power cords and even earplugs. This new engine technology is eight times quieter than gasoline-powered trimmers, making it ideal for use in noise-sensitive areas. And don't expect a decrease in performance as the battery drains - everything runs at full speed until the battery is completely depleted. In addition to being lightweight and well-balanced, the trimmer also runs at a lower vibration due to fewer moving parts. And best of all, startups are as simple as pulling the trigger. No more cord pulling.

Run time may vary based on battery type, charge level and capacity, model, operating style and conditions.

Batteries & chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.
