Description

A loop handle trimmer built to handle tough cutting locations.



The STIHL FS 240 R professional trimmer combines a heavy-duty design with the versatility needed to handle a variety of challenging clearing situations. Providing 20% more fuel efficiency, the low-exhaust-emission engine, combined with the large (25.4 oz.) fuel tank, means you'll spend more time cutting and less time refueling. The FS 240 R is an ideal addition to any professional crew charged with cutting around ponds, along canals, in roadside ditches, and through heavy thickets.

Model Features
  • Shoulder Strap / Carrying System: Using a shoulder strap or carrying system helps distribute the weight of the equipment for increased operator comfort and improved maneuverability.
  • Simplified Starting Procedure: To get started, simply pump the fuel primer, set the choke and pull the starter cord. The built-in stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a simple press of the button. When the engine is off, the throttle lock automatically returns to the “start" setting. Your power tool will be ready to be started when you're ready to get back to work.: See it in action!
