  • Product Details

    Stihl FS 38 Grass Trimmer


    Lightest grass trimmer in the STIHL range. Along walls, under trees or even your lawn borders, it is ideal for trimming grass edges and putting the finishing touches to your garden. Comes standard with AutoCut head and can also fit a PolyCut head for thinning work and larger weeds.

    Electronic ignition module

    This ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running. The ignition system is fully encapsulated and thus proof against damp and dirt.

    Manual fuel pump (Purger)

    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.

    Multi-function control handle

    Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator’s hand never leaves the handle.
