Professional operators who spend much of their time trimming grass on banks should be sure to see the FR460 TEC-EFM backpack brushcutter. Fitted with Stihl’s ElectroStart for comfortably restarting the tool at a touch of a button, there is also an additional pull-starter ErgoStart for cold starting.
The range of personal protection equipment from Stihl has been expanded.
Saltex provides the opportunity to inspect the new FS PROTECT 471 high visibility clearing saw trousers along with the HS MULTI-PROTECT trousers.
The latter boasts hedge trimmer leg protection, clearing saw leg protection and knee protectors. Stretchy material ensures freedom of movement. Other features include waterproof knee and hem areas for wet winter work and long zips on the back of the legs to allow for airflow.
