What else will I need to buy with my brushcutter?
- 2-Stroke Oil.
We advise STIHL MotoMix® which is Stihl’s patented premixed fuel, specially blended for ultimate performance. Like a sports drink for your engine, this 50:1 mixture is a combination of premium non-ethanol, high-octane motor fuel and our highest-quality STIHL HP Ultra oil.

Warranty for non-Masseys customers is 4-12 weeks as we have a duty to ensure our own customers are prioritised first.
