FS 361 Petrol Clearing Saw

FOR PROFESSIONAL WORK, CUTTING LARGE AREAS OF GRASS AND CLEARING SCRUB

General

The STIHL FS 361 C-EM petrol-driven clearing saw very efficiently supports professional users in landscape maintenance, agriculture and municipal services in mowing, clearing overgrown areas and maintaining young trees. With its very large mowing circle of 520 mm, the versatile and robust petrol-driven clearing saw facilitates rapid progress in complex, large-scale mowing work. At the same time the high-torque, low-consumption STIHL 2-MIX engine ensures sufficient power, while
the STIHL anti-vibration system produces only low levels of vibration as you mow with the professional clearing saw. This protects your muscles and joints, as does the ergonomic bike handle (mowing handle), which promotes a natural scything movement. STIHL ErgoStart  enables you to start your petrol-driven clearing saw effortlessly. The fully electronic STIHL M-Tronic  engine management system also supports easy and comfortable starting and ensures optimum engine performance at all times. The FS 361 C-EM features the latest STIHL M-Tronic 3.0 version.
The single-handed multi-function handle makes it possible to control the motor with just one hand. The stop button also assists you in quickly restarting the clearing saw after a break. Your local STIHL dealer  can use the diagnostic socket to gain information about the machine design, battery life and repair and maintenance instructions for your STIHL FS 361 C-EM.
Depending on the task at hand, you can equip the STIHL FS 361 C-EM petrol-driven clearing saw with various cutting tools, such as a grass-cutting blade, shredder blade, circular saw blade or a range of mowing heads. You can find out how to change the cutting tool on your clearing saw in our guide section. The STIHL 300-3 brush knife supplied with the power tool is ideal for effectively mowing matted grass and scrub. Also included as standard: the STIHL ADVANCE PLUS universal harness  for ergonomic working. The large mowing guard offers improved protection against flying cuttings and small stones.
