fsa90rThe professional FSA 90 R trimmer, part of the STIHL Battery KombiSystem, combines the low maintenance and cost effective benefits of STIHL Lithium-Ion battery technology with the renowned power of STIHL. Quiet, yet powerful, this cordless trimmer is great for professionals landscaping in noise-sensitive or exhaust emission sensitive areas like school grounds, business districts or hospitals. It also saves users time and money by eliminating the need for gasoline and two-cycle oil.

Get More Done in Less Time

Professionals get the performance they need with the powerful brushless motor which delivers a high cutting speed and 15” cutting width. This allows users to complete jobs in a short amount of time. FSA 90 R comes standard with durable AutoCut® 25-2 mowing head loaded with .095” Quiet Line™.

Easy-To-Use Features

The FSA 90 R starts instantly with the squeeze of a trigger. Its innovative control handle features an ECOSPEED throttle set wheel, allowing users to set the most effective throttle speed for a specific application such as low throttle around delicate plants and can extend the amount of work done on a single charge. Additional easy-to-use features include:

  • Ergonomic loop handle makes it comfortable to operate and easy to maneuver
  • Low vibration reduces fatigue on long jobs
  • Built-in hanging slot for easy storage

“This trimmer makes life much easier for professional landscapers,” said Marv Mathwig, STIHL Inc. product manager. “It’s portable, lightweight at only 11.2 lbs with the STIHL AP 180 Lithium-Ion battery, and there’s no motor or filter maintenance.”

One Battery for Many Tools

The FSA 90 R is one of 14 tools in the STIHL Battery KombiSystem line. This system is designed so that a single STIHL Lithium-Ion battery can be used with multiple tools and can tackle a wide range of outdoor projects.

The advanced lithium-ion technology eliminates exhaust emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. All batteries are subjected to rigorous testing to ensure they meet STIHL quality and standards.

MSRP: $349.95 (battery and charger sold separately)
