This fuel-efficient, powerful trimmer handles tough jobs and meets emissions requirements.
When you need more power to cut through your landscaping tasks, the STIHL FS 111 R trimmer has the extra muscle you’re looking for. Its low exhaust emission engine is powerful and provides 30% longer run times than the previous model. This professional trimmer features a three-step start procedure that saves users time, and a vertical pleated paper air filter for extended service intervals. It also features a rubberized loop handle, providing a comfortable grip of product for users to work with ease while cutting through thick and thin.
STIHL has a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor measures the air pressure on the clean side of the air filter and adjusts the metering diaphragm in the carburetor. This keeps the RPM at a consistent level, even when the air filter begins to clog.
Made in America
A majority of STIHL products sold in America are made in America of U.S. and foreign materials.
