STIHL brushcutters don’t follow the well-beaten path – they make their own with a big saw blade. The STIHL FS 360 C-EM brushcutter has a low-emission, fuel-efficient engine. It also features the STIHL M-Tronic™ engine management system, which adjusts the engine to compensate for changes in operating conditions, thus maintaining optimum engine performance. Ideal for cutting thickets and thinning wild growth, this brushcutter can take on heavy clearing jobs while remaining environmentally conscious. It also boasts a vertical pleated air filter for long service life. A great convenience feature is its easy-adjust handle bar which swivels for easy transport and storage. The STIHL FS 360 C-EM also features our Easy2Start™ system – making starts fast and easy – and a simplified starting procedure with semi-automatic choke lever and momentary stop switch which automatically returns to the start position so it’s always ready to get to work. This brushcutter even includes a four-point anti-vibration system and an extremely lightweight universal harness for optimal comfort.

STIHL M-Tronic™ System The STIHL M-Tronic™ system intelligently manages the operating performance of the engine. Equipment performance can be affected by a dirty air filter, changes in elevation or poor fuel quality.

This new technology also provides a simplified warm start procedure.
