The STIHL FR 460 TC-EFM Petrol Backpack Brushcutter, a robust and dynamic tool, is designed for tackling work in those hard-to-reach areas where standard tools might fall short. Engineered with a suite of unique features, this brushcutter will serve you efficiently and make those daunting tasks more manageable. Thanks to its smart design, the tool is not only high-performing but also easy to use, making it a worthy addition to your gardening and landscaping kit.
At the core of this tool is the highly innovative STIHL 2-MIX engine with stratified charge system, designed to deliver a high power output while significantly reducing fuel consumption by up to 20%. The engine also boasts lowered exhaust emissions by up to 70%, thereby making it compliant with the EU II European emissions standard. The engine, along with the STIHL ElectroStart system, provides a seamless operating experience. You can effortlessly start the tool at the push of a button without having to remove the machine from your back. Additionally, a pull starter with STIHL ErgoStart is provided for starting in temperatures below 0°C.
The STIHL FR 460 TC-EFM Brushcutter is designed with the operator’s comfort and safety in mind. It incorporates an effective anti-vibration system that dampens the engine’s oscillations to minimise vibrations at the handles. This reduces the risk of any long-term effects on the blood vessels in your hands and arms. The machine also features a loop handle that is ideal for working in tight spaces, such as between bushes and shrubs. And for ease of storage and transport, the brushcutter features a detachable shaft that can be detached without using any tools.
