The STIHL BT 131 Petrol Earth Auger; a one-man earth auger with QuickStop drill break.
The 4-MIX engine features an enlarged fuel tank. A low-vibration handle frame and control handle with stop button. As well as a long-life air filter system and a large support cushion.
The 1.4 kW STIHL 4-MIX engine combines the advantages of a two-stroke and a four-stroke engine. It is economical, smooth, responsive and powerful. It produces less emissions and doesn’t need an oil service.
Long-life air filter system
Together with the compensator that is integrated into the carburettor, the long-life air filter system offers long cleaning intervals. As well as reliable engine protection.
QuickStop drill brake
The Quickstop drill brake release lever stops the drill immediately when it gets stuck in the ground. It also serves as a reverse rotation lock – a stuck bit can then be easily unscrewed manually.
During use the hip pad is positioned comfortably close to the body or leg of the operator. Therefore, making the auger safe and easy to use.
Vibration dampening frame
The vibration-dampening frame with four vibration elements provides comfortable working and reduces fatigue when drilling. The engine is positioned separately from the handle frame, allowing easier working over longer periods.
All operating elements for the engine control are integrated into the right-hand handle. This enables the drill to be operated by finger pressure. The hand always remains in a working position.
