The majority of the weight of the commercial-grade FR460 TC-FEM is carried rucksack-style, so it’s perfect for use on the sort of steep ditches and banks that would be too much to tackle with a conventional handheld brushcutter.
Its seriously high-powered 45.6cc two-stroke engine has been equipped with Stihl’s M-Tronic electronic engine-management system, which enables you to start the engine at different altitudes without manual adjustment of the carburettor.
There’s also a push-button electronic ignition for the ultimate in convenience; and a manual fuel-primer for consistent first- or second-time starts after long periods of inaction.
The Stihl FR460 TC-FEM Backpack Brushcutter is fitted with a ‘loop’-type handle, the compact design of which makes it perfect for use where space is at a premium.
Stihl’s famed anti-vibration technology works to minimise the risk of shock damage to the user’s hands; while their provision of a multi-function grip means the main controls are always at your fingertips.
Another stand-out feature on this model is its carburettor compensator, which ensures an efficient fuel-air is maintained, no matter what condition the air-filter is in.
