Our Price £885.00

The Stihl FR460 TC-EFM Backpack Brushcutter is fitted with Stihl ElectroStart as standard, for comfortably restarting the tool at the touch of a button. Additional pull starter for starting at temperatures below 0 degrees C or when battery is low.  Extremely powerful and comfortable STIHL brushcutter for professionals. Thanks to the STIHL M-Tronic electronic engine management, it starts at different altitudes without manual adjustment of the carburettor. With a fuel efficient STIHL 2-MIX engine, STIHL ErgoStart, stop button and additional tool bag. Split shaft for simple transport and storage. Perfect for mowing jobs that require moving over large areas that are difficult to access.

  • STIHL 2-MIX engine with stratified charge system

    The STIHL two stroke engine with 2-MIX technology ensures a high power output and excellent torque levels while reducing fuel consumptioon by up to 20{d09b12be51a7a6a48787a7bc3312473190ccc1fdbfe07795db7f7cb91fdca1cd}*. It combines a four-channel cylinder with a stratified charge system. Exhaust emissions are also lowered by up to 70{d09b12be51a7a6a48787a7bc3312473190ccc1fdbfe07795db7f7cb91fdca1cd}*. The engine is compliant with EU II European emissions standard. (*Compared with STIHL 2-stroke engines of the same power output without 2-MIX technology. Percentages may vary depending on model.)

  • STIHL ErgoStart (E)Zoom
    STIHL ErgoStart (E)

    Easy starting is achieved by an additional spring between the crankshaft and the starter cord reel. One smooth, steady pull is all it takes for reliable starting of power tools fitted with STIHL ErgoStart. Standard with all CE models.

  • Anti-vibration systemZoom
    Anti-vibration system

    Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

  • Shoulder strap / carrying systemZoom
    Shoulder strap / carrying system

    Using a STIHL shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.

  • Loop handle (R)Zoom

    The loop handled grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs.

  • Manual fuel pump (Purger)Zoom
    Manual fuel pump (Purger)

    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.

  • Detachable shaftZoom

    The shaft can be detached without the use of tools for easy storage and transport. The shaft is not compatible with the STIHL KombiSystem.

  • Multi-function control handleZoom

    Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator’s hand never leaves the handle.

  • CompensatorZoom

    A controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn’t need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.

  • Choke lever (M-Tronic)Zoom
    Choke lever (M-Tronic)

    This fully electronic engine management system adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating modes. It also takes external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality into account. It ensures consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. M-Tronic makes manual carburettor adjustments unnecessary. Thanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition, now there is only one start position on the combi-lever. The engine starts after fewer pulls and with no change of position, and can immediately accelerate up to speed – even after a cold start. M-Tronic also remembers the settings from the last time the tool was used. So when external conditions are the same, optimal engine performance is available every time you start up again.

‘Value for money’

Whilst we would never claim that some products we sell cannot be purchased cheaper ‘somewhere else’, Masseys strive to offer you the best value for money, whilst maintaining the level of service and support that Massey’s has been known for since we were founded in 1947.

This level of service includes fully trained staff to offer expert customer advice and product handover, warranty and workshop backup, spare parts backup and a great environment in which to shop with plenty of parking. All this compared to some ‘no-name’ internet sellers.

Warranty for non-Masseys customers is a 12 week wait for brands in which we are dealers.



Masseys will fuel your Stihl strimmer / brushcutter with ASPEN FUEL, as well as oil it and pre-delivery inspect it. Why use Aspen fuel?

Aspen fuel is chemically inert meaning that it will not break down, unlike normal petrol that starts to break down as soon as you put it in your tank. Your chainsaw will start easily with Aspen even after long periods of it not being used. Aspen 2 is pre-mixed which eliminates the chances of using incorrect 2-stroke mixtures. Aspen is much purer than normal petrol and therefore can be stored for 3-5 years without ‘going off’. Th emissions from Aspen alkylate petrol are 99{d09b12be51a7a6a48787a7bc3312473190ccc1fdbfe07795db7f7cb91fdca1cd} less toxic than normal pump fuel and don’t contain any carcinogenic hydrocarbons such as benezene. See Aspen fuels for more information.
