⚠️ WARNING! Improper use of any trimmer/brushcutter can cause serious or fatal injury. Read, understand and follow all safety instructions in your instruction manual. To reduce the risk of injury from blade contact, circular saw blades may be used on FS brushcutters that have a limitstop, a bicycle handle and double shoulder harness and not on FS brushcutters with a "J" handle or loop handle. Other rigid blades may be used on FS brushcutters having a bicycle handle, a "J" handle or a loop handle equipped with a barrier bar. To reduce the risk of eye injury always wear proper eye protection. Always use the appropriate deflector for the type of cutting attachment, as explained in your instruction manual.

Your time is valuable as a professional. That's something the STIHL FS 70 R grass trimmer recognizes. It comes with a powerful and fuel-efficient engine that allows for longer drive times and fewer refuelings. The FS 70 R is also powerful (even more so than the FS 56 RC-E) and will help you get through your everyday landscaping chores quickly. Do you require additional line? Simply tap the cutting head on the ground and watch as the AutoCut® head feeds new line out automatically. The trimmer is also made to last, with a strong cable drive shaft, a forged connecting rod with exceptional durability, and a 4-bearing gearbox. All of this is covered by a two-year limited warranty.
