The STIHL FS 131 R is a professional heavy duty Petrol Brushcutter. Featuring a low emission 4-MIX engine and a larger fuel tank that delivers longer run times. This Brushcutter has a simplified starting system - simply pump the fuel primer, set the choke and pull the starter cord. The auto-reset stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a press of the button, and you don't have to turn the switch on to start the engine. The rubber loop handle provides a comfortable grip while maneuvering around plants and other obstacles.
This is the most efficient and lowest emission Brushcutter in the professional STIHL range.
Your Brushcutter will require engine oil. We recommend STIHL HP TWO STROKE ULTRA ENGINE OIL for your machine.

4 Mix EngineRuns on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, but offers the benefits of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX® engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency. STIHL 4-MIX® models are quieter and greener.
Loop Handle (R)Loop handle Linetrimmers and Brushcutters are ideal for trimming between bushes and shrubs and other areas where space is limited or when you need greater control over the tool.
PrimerWhen you push the button a small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor. As a result the machine is easier to start.
Stop SwitchThe multi-function control handle features a stop switch which automatically reverts back to the start function for a quicker, simpler restart.
1 Point Anti-VibrationIntense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has developed an effective anti-vibration system where the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations in the handles.
Strong Solid Drive ShaftRobust and capable of driving heavier attachments such as steel blades.
A Range of Mowing Heads and Grass BladesThe versatility of the machine is increased by being able to fit a range of different cutting heads and blades.
Automatic DecompressionThe decompression valve allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force is required when starting the machine.
AutoCut Mowing HeadDouble mowing lines, for trimming work around the garden. Mowing lines are automatically extended when the mowing head is tapped on the ground.
Easy to Use ControlsEasy to use with thumb operated controls on the handle.
Shoulder StrapUsing a harness makes trimming work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.
