This battery-powered straight-shaft trimmer delivers the cutting performance needed for professional landscaping tasks.
So powerful and light, it feels like cheating. The STIHL FSA 85 professional trimmer gives landscapers the ultimate tool for working in densely populated and noise-restricted areas. Powered by 36-volt Lithium-Ion battery technology, this trimmer is five times quieter than the STIHL gasoline-powered equivalent. And with no need for gasoline, the trimmer eliminates all fuel costs and has zero exhaust emissions – ideal for use in close quarters and municipalities looking to go green. Better yet, no power cords.
STIHL Lithium-Ion trimmers continue to run at full capacity, even as the battery drains. You can expect nothing less than 100% performance from the FSA 85 until the battery is completely depleted. The trimmer is also balanced and lightweight, delivering excellent cutting performance and low vibration for easy, smooth operation. Its variable speed trigger allows you to control cutting speed on the fly, so you can maneuver easily around delicate plantings. And when you need to spot trim, this trimmer instantly starts up with the pull of a trigger.
Run time may vary based on battery type, charge level and capacity, model, operating style and conditions. Batteries and chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.
