The STIHL FS240R professional trimmer combines a heavy-duty design with the versatility needed to handle a variety of challenging clearing situations. Providing 20% more fuel efficiency, the low-exhaust-emission engine, combined with the large (25.4 oz.) fuel tank, means you’ll spend more time cutting and less time refueling. The FS240R is an ideal addition to any professional crew charged with cutting around ponds, along canals, in roadside ditches, and through heavy thickets. Heavy-Duty Steel-On-Steel Clutch

IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor measures the air pressure on the clean side of the air filter and adjusts the metering diaphragm in the carburetor. This keeps the RPM at a consistent level, even when the air filter begins to clog.
Purge Pump Primer
By pressing the bulb, this small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburetor, reducing the number of starting pulls needed after an extended break between uses.
Multi-Function Control Handle
Having easy access to all of the controls on one comfortable handle makes it easy to complete tasks so the operator’s hand never has to leave the handle.
