Easy to start and operate.
Starting the FS55 Stimmer is child’s play. Simply press the purger button once to manually prime the pump, then pull the start cord. The manual fuel pump will have primed the carburettor to require fewer strokes to start, even after long periods without using.
Additionally, the housed electronic control module will optimise the ignition reliability of starting and continuing running whilst under load. All vital components are built within the brushcutter’s housing, preventing damage from damp or dirt – a common issue with petrol strimmers
Now your FS55 has started, the powerful 27.2 cc engine is ready to tackle even the densest foliage. As you grip the handles, you will find a throttle trigger perfectly located to by your index finger, therefore, offering precise control over the speed of your brushcutter’s motor.
