Handle – With the thumb screw, the pre-assembled, ergonomic loop handle can be adjusted to the desired position without tools.

Hanging loop – Hang your cordless brushcutter securely on a wall to save space using the loop in the handle housing.

Spacer bracket – Practical spacer bracket for mowing along obstacles and around trees and bushes.

Safety locking button – All STIHL battery products have a locking button with which you can lock the device. This prevents the grass trimmer starting unintentionally when a live battery is inserted.
