The FSA 45 Cordless Line Trimmer is perfect for trimming lawn edges in smaller gardens. It is lightweight and so quiet that ear protection is not required.

STIHL Battery Line Trimmers are very simple to use as they start with the push of a button. The LED charge level indicator on the side of the tool shows you how much battery life is left and when it's low you plug the tool in to charge, like you would a phone.

The Line Trimmer is easy to control when trimming close to garden plants due to the loop handle configuration. The handle is also easily adjusted to suit the operator without the need to use tools. The shaft is extendable to your preferred height, and the mowing head can be turned on its side, which is particularly useful for vertical edge trimming.

The FSA 45 comes with plastic Polycut blades, which are really quick and easy to replace.
