How to adjust the cutting height

Adjusting the cutting height is important when using a brush cutter on your Stihl weedeater. By adjusting the height of the blade, you can achieve the correct balance between cutting efficiency and safety.


To adjust the height of the blade, first make sure that the tool is level. To do this, use a spirit level or a straight edge to check that the blade is perpendicular to the ground. Next, look for the adjustment wheel on the side of the tool. It will have either an “H” or a “L” shape. Spin it to change the cutting height.

Finally, push down on the accelerator and shift into reverse (or drive) while simultaneously turning the handlebars to lock them into place. Be careful not to lose your balance while doing this!
