Robust 0.9 kW brushcutter with all-roand grip

The STIHL FS 70 R petrol brushcutter is suitable for domestic applications when you need maximum manoeuvrability for mowing in tight spaces. The practical wraparound handle is invaluable when working between shrubs and bushes. Mowing of lawns can also be tackled quickly.

Your STIHL FS 70 R brushcutter is powered by a high-torque, fuel-efficient STIHL 2-MIX engine. The manual fuel pump facilitates quick start-up with only a few pulls required on the starter cord.

The single-handed multi-function handle makes operation easier, as you can control the engine with just one hand. Thanks to the stop button, the STIHL FS 70 R brushcutter can be restarted immediately after an interruption without having to press any switches.

For longer periods of work, it is advisable to use the harness included in delivery, as it makes your work more comfortable and protects your muscles and joints. The STIHL FS 70 R can be equipped with a wide range of STIHL cutting tools to suit the application at hand.
