STIHL backpack brushcutters make work easier in difficult operating conditions. They save both time and effort when cutting on steep banks, overgrown slopes or in narrow ditches. When mowing areas of dense growth, the power unit conveniently carried on the user’s back offers an important advantage. The power unit is pivot-mounted on a light carrying frame. Effective buffer elements prevent engine vibrations being transmitted to the operation. The result is largely fatigue-free operation.
