Stihl FS 38 Weed Trimmer

A lightweight, value-priced consumer trimmer with many quality design features.

Designed for those seeking a great entry level string trimmer at a value price, the FS 38 is ideal for the homeowner. Its lightweight design – just 9.3 pounds! - is surprising when compared to its power output. And its high cutting speeds and 15" cutting width allow the user to complete trimming tasks in a short amount of time. Combined with optimized balance, an ergonomic loop handle, curved shaft and low vibration, the FS 38 offers exceptional handling and maneuverability around landscaping obstacles.

You’ll find nothing but quality components in all STIHL grass trimmers for the home. These aren’t your typical trimmers – they feature streamlined, ergonomic designs, unyielding performance and durable parts made to last year after year. Here are a few of the features you’ll find on every STIHL grass and weed trimmer:

  • Multi-Function Control Handle delivers easy access to ON/OFF and throttle controls on one comfortable handle. This makes it easy to use without the operator’s hand ever leaving the handle. Some models feature a momentary stop switch, ensuring the switch is “ON” the next time you start – helping to prevent engine flooding.
