FS250 Professional Trimmer

Part #: FS250
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. 

Electronic Ignition Module
The electronic ignition provides reliable starting and because it is fully enclosed, it is protected from moisture and debris for longer service life. 

Multi-Function Control Handle
Having easy access to all of the controls on one comfortable handle makes it easy to complete tasks so the operator’s hand never has to leave the handle. 

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. 

Tool-Free Handle Adjustment
The central wing nut enables easy adjustment without the use of tools. For transportation and space-saving storage, the handle can be rotated 90°. 

Purge Pump Primer
By pressing the bulb, this small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburetor, reducing the number of starting pulls needed after an extended break between uses. 

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.
