Stihl FS 131
An ideal machine for tackling tough jobs.
STIHL's FS131 is a 36.3cc petrol brushcutter with an impressive 4-MIX engine and bike handle control. Supplied with both a metal grass blade and AutoCut mowing head to tackle thick, stubborn grass and weeds, plus an AutoCut mowing head, for dealing with lighter areas in no time.
The air filter boasts a long service life, while being easily accessible when the time does come. All the engine and speed controls are grouped within easy reach, and the stop switch automatically reverts to the start position for simpler restarting.
With its low-emission, 36.3 cc engine and a larger fuel tank than the previous model, the FS 131 delivers 30% longer run times. Its bike-handle design includes rubberized grips for enhanced grasp and comfort. The trimmer also features one touch stop and an easy, three-step starting procedure enabled by the semi-automatic choke lever. All of that, plus an improved air filtration and STIHL exclusive IntelliCarb™ technology. The cherry on top? The solid steel drive shaft accepts a wide range of heavy-duty cutting heads, including metal blades.
Reduced-Emission Engine Technology - Caring for Nature
The STIHL Inc. “Caring for Nature” seal identifies its powered products that are more environmentally conscious, producing zero or low exhaust emissions. STIHL Inc. defines “low exhaust emissions” as being cleaner than EPA and/or CARB exhaust emission standards.
Simplified Starting Procedure
To get started, simply pump the fuel primer, set the choke and pull the starter cord. The built-in stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a simple press of the button. When the engine is off, the throttle lock automatically returns to the “start” setting. Your power tool will be ready to be started when you’re ready to get back to work.
IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor measures the air pressure on the clean side of the air filter and adjusts the metering diaphragm in the carburetor. This keeps the RPM at a consistent level, even when the air filter begins to clog.
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 90°.
