Features

FS 240 RC-E

Standard features

  • STIHL 2-MIX Engine Zoom
    STIHL 2-MIX Engine

    The new 2-stroke engine features an advanced stratified charge system that boosts power, whilst reducing consumption and pollution, significantly lowering unburned hydrocarbons in the exhaust. The result is a cleaner, more fuel efficient engine.

  • Simplified starting system Zoom
    Simplified starting system

    Simply Set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and away you go! The running machine then switches off after a brief press of the stop button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically. Thus the ignition is always ready for starting.

  • Loop handle (R) Zoom
    Loop handle (R)

    The loop handled grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs.

  • STIHL Anti-vibration system Zoom
    STIHL Anti-vibration system

    The STIHL anti-vibration system is available in a one-point version for smaller models and in an especially effective four-point version for larger machines starting with the STIHL. It reduces handle vibration for easy and comfortable operation.

  • Easy2Start (E) Zoom
    Easy2Start (E)

    STIHL Easy2Start makes it possible to start the machine with very little effort. This supports the starting process with an additional spring accumulator between the crankshaft and starting starting device which reduces the force needed to start the machine. Even if you only pull the starting cord slowly the engine starts easily.

  • Multi function handle Zoom
    Multi function handle

    All the engine controls are at your fingertips, allowing easy and safe operation.
