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.

    Mostly great
    Works full power right up til the battery dies. Well balanced. Tap cap for string feed/opening string housing wears out quickly making it inconsistent with feed and very difficult to open housing to restring. Have to replace cap 2-3 times a season.

    Very quiet and plenty of power for the average homeowner
    I looked at various trimmer options including your gas models. I have some hearing problems so I was leaning towards the cordless units. Since I didn't want to deal with extension cords anymore, I eliminated the corded model. I purchased the FSA 65 and couldn't be more pleased. follow the directions and you won't be dissatisfied. You can trim early in the day and not wake up the neighbors!

    dependable and lightweight with excellent battery life
    We have owned and used gas-powered and electric Stihl trimmers for over ten years. My wife prefers the electric model, so we decided to try the battery-powered model. We both like its dependability and sufficient power for trimming. The battery-life is great and exceeds our expectations. Since the batteries are usable in all the battery-powered Stihl implements, we have purchased a small chainsaw. We cannot imagine how we managed to get along without the battery-powered implements. We recommend ... read more them without reservation.

    Great performance - needs lawn edger options.
    I've owned the FSA-85 for almost a year now and have been very pleased. I've got a larger-than-normal suburban yard and the AP180 battery has enough juice to trim the yard and then blow away the clippings when I pop it into the BGA 85 blower. For me, the only drawback to the system is that there is no lawn edger attachment or separate edger tool for use with the Lithium Ion battery pack. There isn't an edging mode on the FSA-85 string trimmer either... I'm looking into other options for a lawn ... read more edger, but I would greatly prefer to simply have another tool that works with this great battery pack and charger.

    Awesome!
    I have had this trimmer for two summers. Sick of monkeying with gas, and also after having a rather useless 18 V battery trimmer (power was so weak could only cut through minimal grass-- nearly useless)- i figured if anyone would make a good battery trimmer it would be still. When I figured out how much the battery was, I went all in with the hedge trimmer, chainsaw, blower, and mower, and bought three batteries-- i have been very satisfied. Power on the trimmer rocks, hard to tell even battery ... read more powered; high recommend, get the AP 160 battery!

    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.

    Professional level tool
    This trimmer will tackle most any reasonable trimmer job. It's heavier than the cheap tools, and that is because of a better motor and battery. The weight is offset by a shoulder sling. Two issues: the most common one is the auto line advance does not work well, causing delays and re-adjusting line feed. At this price, I didn't expect to have this problem. The other issue is the battery got stuck. That should never happen. It seems the product design folks at Stihl need to fix this. I ... read more still think its a good tool.

    It almost feels like you are cheating. Light, powerful and easy.
    If you like noise, smell of gas fumes, and soreness by repeatedly pulling the cord, this might not be the best option for you. You just unlock, press the trigger and go. Only drawback is the amount of time to drain the battery in heavy grass etc. For large properties with option for hours of weedwacking I would suggest 2 batteries and the faster recharger.

    Awesome tool
    This is the sixth Stihl Power tool that I have purchased and I find it to be an amazing piece of equipment. I am not easily impressed, but the ease-of-use and power this trimmer has is nothing short of amazing. It is almost overkill for just trimming grass around the house, but if you have a lot of work or high grass and weeds to trim, then this is your tool. Not pictured is the shoulder strap which is very useful when cutting for long periods of time, and it also comes to safety glasses. If ... read more you're cutting anything higher than normal grass then you need to use a safety glasses, because this thing really tears up tall grasses when you grab full throttle. The electric motor has a tremendous amount of torque which is noticeable when the grass is tall, which can bog down some gas trimmers. In fact, this has so much power its hard to believe this is an electric trimmer. In the end I would definitely buy this again. Well done Stihl.
