STIHL FS38 Brushcutter Review

STIHL FS38 BrushcutterThe STIHL FS38 brushcutter is great value and is perfect for home owners. It has a surprisingly high amount of power compared to its weight, just over 4kg. It has enough power to complete household trimming while remaining light enough to remain easy to operate and manoeuvre.

The FS38 has a fully adjustable front loop handle that can be turned 360 degrees and set in place easily in a matter of seconds. Loop handles are perfect for when you need to work in a limited amount of space like between bushes and it’s adjustability ensures that you can easily find the handle position that you are most comfortable with. The drive shaft of the STIHL FS38 brushcutter is also fully lined to reduce the amount of vibration you feel when using it to further increase your comfort.

The handle of the STIHL FS38 brushcutter has a multi-functional design. All of the controls including those for starting, running and stopping the strimmers are built in to the handle. This means that your hand never has to leave the handle during the operation of the machine, making it more comfortable and easier to complete gardening tasks.

The FS38 brushcutter comes equipped with high tech polymer housing which helps it to be lightweight as well as protect it from impact and corrosion. The choke lever is also protected to help prevent damage from day to day use. The control cables are enclosed within the casing, this eliminates dangling wires and keeps them out of your way when operating the machine.

This brushcutter is built to last. It comes fitted with a heavy-duty steel on steel centrifugal clutch which reduces slippage and improves performance. The spark plug is also protected when the machine is in use to extend its lifespan but it is easily accessible and simple to change.

The STIHL FS38 erases the need for you to manually check the fuel level before commencing work. The translucent fuel tank makes it simple to check fuel levels before during and after the work.
