The FSA 85 is a powerful cordless grass trimmer for trimming around obstacles and for mowing larger areas of lawn.
The 350mm cutting diameter means you can get the job done in no time, whilst the variable speed gives you precise control whenever you need it, so you can slow it down for more intricate jobs, such as mowing in smaller spaces and around bushes and trees.
The FSA 85 is so quiet to use, you won't even need to wear ear defenders either so you certainly won't annoy the neighbours. It's also very simple to extend the mowing line from the AutoCut C 4-2 head - just bump it on the ground and the mowing line automatically extends.
The FSA 85 is part of our PRO Cordless range of tools and uses AP-series interchangeable batteries - it is not compatible with AK batteries in the COMPACT Cordless System.
- Run time on recommended AP 100 battery: Up to 18 minutes

The rubberised loop handle is easily adjusted to the perfect position for you.
