Our most powerful loop-handle trimmer – great for right-of-way and other heavy-duty uses.
Brush can grow in the darndest places. And when it’s your job to trim those hard-to-reach areas, the last thing you want is a trimmer that bogs down. With a 13% increase in engine power over the FS 130 R, the FS 250 R STIHL trimmer has a high power-to-weight ratio, making quick work of difficult trimming tasks. 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. Its soft-grip handle offers comfort and control around obstacles, so you can apply that power directly where you need it. The trimmer also features a solid steel shaft for exceptional durability.
