A lightweight and easy to use battery-powered trimmer – ideal for suburban yards. Batteries and chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.

Get great value with the STIHL FSA 57 Lithium-Ion trimmer. A lightweight, battery-powered trimmer, is an ideal choice for maintaining suburban yards. This trimmer cuts an 11" swath at a continuous high speed, saving time and doing more with a STIHL AK Series battery. With an AK 10 battery, the trimmer weighs just 7.5 pounds and has a run time of up to 20 minutes on a single charge. For comfort and convenience, this unit features an adjustable shaft to customize height to the user, an easy-to-use AutoCut® head which feeds noise-reducing line, and a bump guard to help the user trim carefully around obstacles like trees and shrubs. The FSA 57 trimmer is available as a stand-alone unit or as a value-priced bundle with the AK 10 battery and AL 101 battery charger. Other battery options are available.

*Run time may vary based on battery type, charge level and capacity, model, operating style and conditions.

Important Information

WARNING! Improper use of any trimmer/brushcutter can cause serious or fatal injury. Read, understand and follow all safety instructions in your instruction manual. To reduce the risk of injury from blade contact, circular saw blades may be used on FS brushcutters that have a limitstop, a bicycle handle and double shoulder harness and not on FS brushcutters with a "J" handle or loop handle. Other rigid blades may be used on FS brushcutters having a bicycle handle, a "J" handle or a loop handle equipped with a barrier bar. To reduce the risk of eye injury always wear proper eye protection. Always use the appropriate deflector for the type of cutting attachment, as explained in your instruction manual.
