Stihl’s powerful product picks for LAMMA 2016

From 20 – 21 January 2016, STIHL will be presenting LAMMA visitors with cutting-edge products to help cultivate the land; built with the busy farming professional in mind.

STIHL invites all press to come and see the team at LAMMA, the UK’s leading farm machinery, equipment and services show, at the STIHL show stand (Stand 492, Hall 4) to see a myriad of industry-leading machines and equipment.

A highlight of STIHL’s agricultural products is the FSA 90 cordless brushcutter. A powerful machine with a cutting blade and ergonomic bike handle for trimming large areas of tough grass, the FSA 90 is powered by 36V Lithium-Ion PRO battery technology and features STIHL’s powerful EC Motor. Partnered with the AP300 battery, the FSA 90 runs for up to 39 minutes with ECOSPEED load control helping extend the battery life, making it a popular machine for maintaining the land. Also on show will be the FSA 90R brushcutter featuring an auto-cut head and loop handle. With all of the benefits of the FSA 90 and a lighter weight at just 2.8kg – the FSA 90R is a powerful, reliable tool for farmers and horticulturists.

The BGA 100 backpack blower boasts the highest blowing force of all STIHL hand-held blowers, blowing 14N at its most powerful; approximately 70% higher than the popular BGA 85.

The innovative new machine is extremely light at a mere 2.5kg (excluding battery) and incredibly quiet thanks to a sound power level of
90dB (A), a 10 dB(A) sound power reduction from the BGA 85. Other key features include a powerful EC motor for optimum blowing performance, three distinct power stages plus a ‘power boost’ feature and 36V Lithium-Ion PRO battery technology.

The BGA 100 can be perfectly partnered with the AR 3000 backpack battery to ensure running time of up to 160 minutes from a single charge and 25% more capacity than its predecessor the AR 900 backpack battery. With comfortable, ergonomic back support and an AP adapter with plug socket for easy charging, the AR 3000 and BGA 100 are the ideal combination for professional users in need of a premium tool they can rely on.

As well as introducing a raft of new cordless machines, STIHL will be showcasing the BR 450 petrol backpack blower at LAMMA 2016. With a powerful 2-MIX engine and tool-less adjustable blower tube and control handle, this machine is ideal for farmers and land owners alike.

The adjustable controls combined with STIHL’s anti-vibration system ensure all-day use in comfort, without compromising power.
