Battery Trimmers

Whether you’re a homeowner or a professional, you can appreciate the power and convenience of STIHL battery-powered trimmers. They’re lightweight, quiet and start instantly. There’s also zero exhaust emissions, and zero engine maintenance. STIHL battery grass trimmers are great for school grounds, hospitals and other noise-sensitive areas.

    Far better than the competitors electric rechargeable trimmer.
    Purchased an FS65 electric rechargeable trimmer after wearing out 2 -18volt and 1 - 40volt Ryobi rechargeable trimmers. I mow and trim 2.5 acres and the FS65 performance is amazing. The weight is comfortable and it is well balanced. The straight shaft unit works best for my varied trimming needs - chainlink fence, flower beds, trees, pond banks, and concrete block walls. By the time the battery runs low on charge, I am ready for a break. Compared to the Ryobi 40volt single line feed the Stihl ... read more 36volt dual line feed with thicker and higher quality line, the FS65 has cut my trimming time by 1/3. The unit is substantially more expensive (too expensive) than the competition, but the difference in performance and quality is significant.

    Wonderful product
    This replaced an electric start trimmer which was very heavy and impossible for me to start and my husband had trouble starting it also. Just putting in a battery and getting right to trimming is a wonderful change. It is pretty well balanced and I feel safe using it and it goes for a very long time. It seems to cut through just about anything except larger branches which is what I use it for.

    A delight to use with a couple exceptions
    With the battery operation eliminating the need for a gasoline engine or electric cords, it is truly a pleasure to use the trimmer. I am having one major problem that is not addressed in the instruction manual. The instructions say to tighten the cap by hand when replacing the mowing head. When this cap is tightened, even lightly, the string line will not advance when the mowing head is tapped on the ground. If the cap is loosened several turns the line will advance; however, each time the mower ... read more head is tapped on the ground the cap tightens; and the line will no longer advance. I find that each time I wish to advance the line loosening the cap before tapping the mowing head will allow the string to advance. It would seem that there should be a spacer that would keep the cap from being tightened too far.

    Great battery life
    I was skeptical about power and battery life but have been amazed as my FS 85 has as much power as my old gas weed eater and the battery life has gotten me through 30 to 40 minutes of edging and trimming with no loss of power. I have had for about a month and compared to other models I looked at this is the real deal.

    As powerful as gas trimmers
    Fantastic trimmer, comparable to any of the gas trimmers, and I've never had it run out of power because the battery was drained.
