FS 250 R



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.

  • Loop Handle (R): Loop handle grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for trimming between bushes and shrubs and other areas where space is limited.
  • 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.
