The new generation Stihl FS 50 C-E Petrol Strimmer is a lightweight brush cutter with an ergonomic design which makes it the ideal brush cutter to be used on grassy areas around the garden or plot.
The highlights of this machine are its modern looks, easy operation and simple starting method. The simplified starting ensures that the problem of a flooded engine belongs to the past. The Stihl ErgoStart enables easy starting without having to jerk the starter. The 2-stroke engine of the machine is a new design and comes with a stratified charge that affords fast acceleration, reduction of emissions and lower fuel consumption. The combination of a bent shaft, looped handle and AutoCut mowing head makes trimming grass in small areas and around objects easy and comfortable, the ideal strimmer to use for edging.
The comfortable loop handle can be adjusted without the need of any tools when there is a need to adjust it, for the comfort of the operator.
Overall it is a well-designed machine with various quality Stihl accessories available to make operation a pleasure.
The reduced–emission technology in the engine.
The 2-stroke engine comes with a stratified charge which creates a layer of air without fuel between the burned fuel and the fuel in the crankcase which reduce the fuel loss. This provides more power, 20% + lower fuel consumption when compared to regular 2-stroke engines and vastly reduced exhaust fumes.
Manual fuel pump – It comes equipped with a small fuel pump which at the touch of a button delivers fuel to the carburettor which reduces the number of strokes needed to start the machine.
Stihl ErgoStart – This enables the machine to be started with the least amount of effort and reduces the jerks to get the machine started. No more jerking and pulling at full force. The machine is also available without the Stihl ErgoStart system.
Simplified starting – Starting a machine has never been so easy and can be done in three easy steps. Set the choke, press the button to pump the fuel and lightly pull the starter cord and you are ready for action. Switch it off by pressing the stop button, the ignition will ready itself after stopping.
Multi-Function control handle – There is no need to let go of the handle with the controls that can be comfortably operated with the operator’s thumb.
