Features

FS 131 R

Standard features

  • Decompression system Zoom
    Decompression system

    The decompression valve allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.

  • STIHL 4-MIX® engine Zoom
    STIHL 4-MIX® engine

    You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX® engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX® engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.

  • Air filter with long service life Zoom
    Air filter with long service life

    The easily accessible paper filter with a long service life means it can go for long intervals without changing. (similar to illustration)

  • Manual fuel pump (Purger) Zoom
    Manual fuel pump (Purger)

    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.

  • Anti-vibration system Zoom
    Anti-vibration system

    Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

  • Stop switch Zoom
    Stop switch

    The multi-function control handle features a stop switch which automatically reverts back to the start position for a quicker, simple restart.

  • Loop handle Zoom
    Loop handle

    The brushcutter loop handle is ideal when working in confined spaces and mowing around obstacles.
