Take The pain out of Strimming

 Stihl FSA 45

The STIHL FSA 45 Grass Trimmer

STIHL have made a huge investment into Lithium-Ion battery power to offer another option to electricity powered garden tools, such as mowers and strimmers, which have lengthy cables and plug into a wall socket and have always been a budget solution for smaller garden owners.  In 2016 they introduced their COMPACT Cordless range for medium to large size gardens; then earlier this year they introduced their brand new Cordless range for smaller gardens, starting from just £99.00.


The STIHL FSA 45 weighs just more than a 2L bottle of water and has a run time of 20 minutes and the battery comes pre-charged.


The biggest benefit of the battery powered product isn’t that it is so light weight, isn’t the lack of vibration or noise, it’s the practicality; it’s a tool you can use for the odd 5 minutes here and there, to keep on top of your lawn, little and often.


To keep a small garden tidy on a budget while maintaining a quality solution the FSA 45 takes the pain out of garden maintenance.


If you are a medium or large garden owner then the FSA 45 still has a valued potential space within your garden tool set for those ad hoc jobs such as trimming edges, trimming around trees or doing the smaller grass areas. However I would not recommend the product for sole use over a large garden due to the 20 minute run time, STIHL’s COMPACT cordless range would be far more suitable at only £100 more, this range also has the benefit of interchangeable batteries.
