A traditional design, the FS 38 brushcutter comes with a two-handed grip combination; one hand at the motor, the other at the loop hold further down. Why not add the over the shoulder harness, so you can use the trimmer for even longer periods without back pain. What’s more, it reduces the effort to achieve a flowing strimming action

Your hand never leaves the controls.
Fortunately, the Stihl FS38 strimmer is much easier to start than other petrol models. Simplistic to start, press the button once to prime the fuel pump and then pull on the starter cord. The surprisingly small but powerful 27.2 cc engine will fire up, with the inbuilt electronic ignition ensuring the motor stays powered as long as you need. All of the modules are built within the grass trimmer’s housing, preventing damage from damp or dirt – a common issue with petrol strimmers.
It’s easy to operate with either hand, with the simple trigger switch on the handle, your hand will never have to leave the strimmer’s controls.
