The FSA 65 is a light, quiet but powerful battery-powered grass trimmer that is ideal for thinning grass in large gardens.
It has a 300mm cutting diameter, which is perfect for covering larger areas in no time. It uses an AutoCut C 4-2 mowing head with 2.0mm mowing line, which means it can get through tougher grass with ease, and you won't even need to wear ear defenders as it's so quiet.
It's also very simple to extend the mowing line from the head - just tap the head on the ground and the mowing line automatically extends.
The FSA 65 is part of our PRO Cordless range of tools, with interchangeable batteries - it is not compatible with the AK batteries in the COMPACT Cordless System.
