All the heavy-duty features of the FS 250 R – with a bike handle.

Give the wilderness a shave with the powerful FS 250 bike-handle trimmer from STIHL. The FS 250 powers through tough terrain and is ideal for professionals who demand ultimate performance – and demand it often. It boasts a significant 13% increase in power over the FS 130 and has a high power-to-weight ratio. Its ElastoStart™ starter handle, fuel primer bulb and electronic ignition provide quick and comfortable starts. The IntelliCarb™ compensating carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the fuel/air ratio when the air filter becomes clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM for maximum performance. And its bike-handle design with soft-grip handles makes it easy to complete large mowing jobs with less fatigue and more comfort. The FS 250 can also serve as a heavy-duty brushcutter with the addition of a metal cutting attachment or circular saw blade and the appropriate accessory kit. It’s a great choice for mowing heavy grass with ease.

  • Bike Handle: When used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, enabling a smooth horizontal mowing action to cover large areas quickly and efficiently. With soft grips for increased comfort, the bike handle provides greater control and helps reduce operator fatigue.
  • IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor: The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor measures the air pressure on the clean side of the air filter and adjusts the metering diaphragm in the carburetor. This keeps the RPM at a consistent level, even when the air filter begins to clog.
  • STIHL ElastoStart™: The ElastoStart™ starter handle is a feature of STIHL. It is a starting grip with a built-in shock absorber that helps reduce the effort when pulling on the starter cord. The ElastoStart™ starter grip noticeably reduces the sudden peak forces (compression) normally felt during cranking. The forces which occur at the grip after the first compression stroke are smoothed out.
