If you’re looking to clear thick grass coverage from verges and ditches, then this professional long-shaft clearing saw provides that extra bit of reach you’ll need. It’s also a great choice for the taller gardener tackling regular grass trimming applications.

The STIHL FS461 C-EM packs-in the high-specification features. Key amongst these has to be STIHL’s innovative ‘M-Tronic’ engine-management system, whereby ignition timing and fuel metering are electronically controlled, in turn ensuring performance is continually being optimised – manual carburettor adjustments will be a thing of the past.

The engine itself is from STIHL’s revolutionary 2-MIX stable. These cutting-edge power packs utilise the German manufacturer’s latest stratified charge technology, so you can be sure of a 20% reduction in fuel costs, and a similarly impressive reduction in exhaust emissions. The engine has a cylinder displacement of 45.6cc, and develops a huge 3hp.

Thanks to its lightweight construction (8.6kg) and soft, padded harness, the STIHL FS461 C-EM Professional Clearing Saw is well suited to day-long use.

Its ergonomic ‘U’-type handlebar allows for the controlled sweeping action that achieves the best cutting results; its series of four shock absorbers works to keep vibration transfer from the engine to the operator’s hands at the lowest possible level.

Other noteworthy features include Stihl’s famed ErgoStart recoil-ignition technology, which makes pull-starting the engine an almost effortless operation; and a carburettor compensator, which serves to ensure there’s no noticeable drop in performance until the last minute before the air filter needs to be cleaned.

An AutoCut 40-2 grass-mowing head is included with this model.

Shipping Info

If you’re buying a boxed product, we aim to get your order delivered next working day – UK mainland where possible.

If you’re buying a tractor or ride-on mower – a special order item – it could be slightly longer, as we need to PDI the machine.

We do try and van-deliver these machines if we can, as this gives us a chance to demonstrate the product, and to ensure you’re happy and confident with your purchase.

If we can’t van-deliver your machine, as you’re out of our local delivery area, the tractor will be sent on a pallet via a courage company. They will then contact you directly to book a specific day and time that suits you.
