STIHL FS 55 Brushcutter


A practical, lightweight petrol brushcutter from STIHL.

If you are looking for a low weight, compact brushcutter with the excellent quality you've come to expect from STIHL, the FS 55 is a great choice.

Reliable starting & operation

An electronic ignition module ensures reliable starting and trouble-free operation. The ignition system itself is fully enclosed for protection against damp and dirt, so you can rest assured on the durability of the FS 55's ignition system for years to come. You can deliver fuel manually to the carburettor at the touch of a button thanks to the manual fuel pump. This is ideal for reducing the number of starting strokes required after long breaks in operation.

Comfortable, simple control

Being operated by a bike handle, you can enjoy a smooth mowing action and easy guiding, when it is used in conjunction with a harness. This set up allows you to work on large areas with less fatigue, so is a great way to maintain gardens and areas of grass. A multi-function control handle with integral throttle trigger and slide control run/stop selector keeps all the controls within reach, for easy, comfortable thumb operation without the need to take your hand off the handle.
