Features

FS 260 C-E

Standard features

  • ERGONOMIC BIKE HANDLE Zoom
    ERGONOMIC BIKE HANDLE

    EFFORTLESS MOWING OF LARGE AREAS. The ergonomic bike handle helps you mow large areas quickly and effortlessly, as this handle supports a natural brushcutter movement. The bike handle is easy to adjust and secure.

  • LARGE FUEL TANK Zoom
    LARGE FUEL TANK

    FOR LONGER WORKING INTERVALS. The large fuel tank allows you to work longer without having to refuel. Thanks to its transparent material, you can check the fill level of your tank quickly and easily. The filler cap is firmly attached so that you cannot lose it.

  • STIHL ErgoStart (FT) Zoom
    STIHL ErgoStart (FT)

    STIHL ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.

  • LONG AIR FILTER SERVICE LIFE Zoom
    LONG AIR FILTER SERVICE LIFE

    ENSURES LONG CHANGEOVER INTERVALS. Thanks to its long service life, you rarely need to change the easily accessible filter. This saves resources and reduces maintenance effort.

  • STIHL 2-MIX-Engine Zoom
    STIHL 2-MIX-Engine

    2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

  • Multi-function control handle Zoom
    Multi-function control handle

    Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.

  • STOP BUTTON Zoom
    STOP BUTTON

    RESTART WORK QUICKLY. With the stop button, you can switch off your power tool quickly and easily for a short break, for example. As the button springs back to its original position after actuation, the engine is immediately ready to start again. This provides more comfort after breaks and increases your work efficiency.

  • CHANGEOVER BETWEEN SUMMER AND WINTER OPERATION Zoom
    CHANGEOVER BETWEEN SUMMER AND WINTER OPERATION

    EASY CONVERSION THANKS TO SLIDERS. You can easily adapt your work tool to the different conditions of the seasons. A slider allows you to easily switch between summer and winter operation. The winter setting ensures that the air filter and carburettor do not ice up.

  • Anti-vibration system Zoom
    Anti-vibration system

    Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

  • Tool free handle adjustment Zoom
    Tool free handle adjustment

    The central wing nut enables easy adjustment without the use of tools. For transportation and space-saving storage, the handle can be rotated by 90°.

  • Manual fuel pump (Purger) Zoom
    Manual fuel pump (Purger)

    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.

Additional features

  • ADVANCE forestry harness Zoom
    ADVANCE forestry harness

    Great freedom of movement thanks to the freely suspended leg protection. Extremely ergonomic for forestry applications involving circular saw blades. Very light. Tool bag also available.
