The Stihl FS 50 is the perfect fit for the domestic user. Perfect for for trimming small areas of grass and lawn edges. Its lightweight at just 4.5kg, bent shaft , auto feed head, loop handle and multi function handle are features which make the FS 50 ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs. With Stihl ErgoStart, a coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smooths out force peaks, resulting in the machine being able to start with just 1/3 of the normal force needed.

Multi-function control handle
Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator’s hand never leaves the handle.
The round handled grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs.
