For professional work on high hedges and use near the ground. Reduced-weight transmission, 2-MIX engine with ECOSPEED for speed control when working for long periods in noise-sensitive areas, STIHL ErgoStart, cutter bar adjustable by 145°. Total length: 242 cm.
The STIHL 2-mix engine specially designed for the new generation of hedge trimmer combines low consumption and emissions with low weight and excellent acceleration. There are also always sufficient power reserves for cutting thicker shrubs.
STIHL ErgoStart (E)
A genuine advance in easy starting. STIHL ErgoStart (E) cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. All it takes is 2 fingers and a gentle pull action.
With the ECOSPEED function, you can use your long reach hedge trimmer in a more economical operating mode. Simply turn the wheel to the minus direction, thereby reducing the maximum engine speed. This keeps your long reach hedge trimmer running at partial load; however, despite this limited setting, you can shift to full capacity when necessary by pressing the throttle lever. Operating at partial load reduces fuel consumption and you can work much longer with one tank.
Double-sided cutting blades ensure a powerful and precise cut even through thicker branches.
Quick-release adjustment system
The cutter bar can be adjusted in increments up to 145° in two directions. To save space, the cutter bar can be folded parallel to the shaft, and locked, for transport.
The loop handle gives you maximum flexibility and easy operation even in confined working conditions.
The clip for the belt is rotatable, making the tool easier to manoeuvre
Manual fuel pump (purger)
A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
Shoulder strap / carrying system
Using a STIHL shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.
