2013 STIHL FS 250 R
Give the wilderness a shave with the powerful FS 250 bike-handle trimmer from STIHL. The FS 250 powers through tough terrain and is ideal for professionals who demand ultimate performance – and demand it often. It boasts a significant 13% increase in power over the FS 130 and has a high power-to-weight ratio. Its ElastoStart™ starter handle, fuel primer bulb and electronic ignition provide quick and comfortable starts. The IntelliCarb™ compensating carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the fuel/air ratio when the air filter becomes clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM for maximum performance. And its bike-handle design with soft-grip handles makes it easy to complete large mowing jobs with less fatigue and more comfort. The FS 250 can also serve as a heavy-duty brushcutter with the addition of a metal cutting attachment or circular saw blade and the appropriate accessory kit. It’s a great choice for mowing heavy grass with ease.
