Versatile 1.7kW professional brushcutter with loop handle (R)

The versatility and robustness of the STIHL FS 240 R brushcutter will support you in your work in agriculture and horticulture. The practical loop handle provides support for clearing work between bushes and shrubs and for working in confined spaces. It gives you the best possible freedom of movement.

The powerful STIHL 2-MIX engine offers you a good ratio of cutting performance and low fuel consumption. Thanks to the large fuel tank, you can also manage long periods of use without major interruptions. If you resume work after an interruption, the integrated stop button helps you continue work straight away without pressing a switch. The single-handed multi-function handle also helps you to work effectively. You can use it to access all the essential functions quickly and easily. The STIHL FS 240 R petrol brushcutter is equipped with the STIHL anti-vibration system to protect your muscles and joints.

If you are planning longer periods of use, the harness supplied as standard will help you distribute the weight of the power tool more effectively. The brushcutter is equipped with an air filter and has a long service life, enabling long changeover intervals.
