STIHL FS 240 R Professional Trimmer
The STIHL FS 240 R professional trimmer combines a heavy-duty design with the versatility needed to handle a variety of challenging clearing situations.

The FS 240 R is an ideal addition to any professional crew charged with cutting around ponds, along canals, in roadside ditches, and through heavy thickets.
