The Stihl FS 56 C-E Petrol Brushcutter is a new generation petrol brushcutter this bike handles style tool also has a straight shaft and is light weight for better manouverability. The modern appearance and convenient operation thanks to ErgoStart making it a simple starting procedure are just some of things they make this new generation of trimmers truly amazing. The number of steps needed to start the machine has been  reduced so the frustration of a flooded engine is virtually eliminated. The new 2-stroke engine with stratified charge allows fast acceleration, low emissions, reduced fuel consumption. It comes with fully adjustable bike handle and AutoCut line head as standard.


Reduced-emission engine technology

2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

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 strokes required following extended breaks in operations.

STIHL ErgoStart (E)

STIHL ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.

Simplified starting system

Simply set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and away you go! The running machine then switches off after a brief press of the stop button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically. Thus the ignition is always ready for starting.

Bike handle

When used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle enables a smooth mowing action. The bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, making it ideal for working on large areas and thus reducing fatigue.

Basic harness

For use with loop handle machines.

    Another Excellent piece of kit from Stihl. Setup and quickly delivered by Radmore & Tucker. Nice easy start, I don’t need full revs to bump the line out and definitely uses less fuel. Highly recommended.
