STIHL FS260 C-E is suitable for tough, largescale mowing work. One of our best sellers to landscapers or consumers with large areas to maintain. Comes equipped with STIHL 1-point anti-vibration system, STIHL ErgoStart, multifunction bike handle, tool-free handle adjustment, 2-MIX engine & ADVANCE universal harness.
STIHL 2-MIX-Engine2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.
STIHL ErgoStart (E)STIHL ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.
ADVANCE universal harnessExtremely ergonomic, comfortable and light. For strength saving, mowing and shredding. Chest belt and tool bag also available.
Anti-vibration systemIntense 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.
Multi-function control handleEasy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.
Bike handleWhen used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle enables a smooth mowing action. The bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, making it ideal for working on large areas and thus reducing fatigue.
Tool free handle adjustmentThe central wing nut enables easy adjustment without the use of tools. For transportation and space-saving storage, the handle can be rotated by 90°.
Simplified starting systemSimply set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and away you go! The running machine then switches off after a brief press of the stop button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically. Thus the ignition is always ready for starting.
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.
Winter setting slide controlIt is quick and easy to switch the setting from winter to summer using the slide control. Using the winter setting will prevent the air filter and carburettor from freezing. (similar to illustration)
Large fuel tankThe transparent fuel tank ensures long working intervals with fewer fuel stops. The level is easily visible from the outside. Easy to refuel through a large, easily accessible tank opening. (similar to illustration)
Air filter with long service lifeThe easily accessible paper filter with a long service life means it can go for long intervals without changing. (similar to illustration)
GogglesIt is important to protect your eyes from flying particles and harmful UV radiation. Therefore a pair of safety goggles/glasses are supplied with the the machine. Note: Additional face protection must be worn when working with brushcutters.
