STIHL FS 56 C-E Brushcutter


A lightweight, easy to start brushcutter from STIHL.

If you are a homeowner looking for an easy to use petrol brushcutter to help manage and trim large or difficult areas, the FS 56 C-E is a great choice.

Reduced-emission, efficient engine

With STIHL's 2-stroke engine with stratified charge, the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle is drastically reduced. As a result, you can expect more power with lower weight, up to 20% less fuel consumption and significantly reduced exhaust emissions compared to regular 2-stroke engines.

Easy to start, easy to use

With the ErgoStart system on board, the effort required to start the FS 56 C-E is cut by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just a third of the normal force. Thanks to a spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft, force peaks are smoothed out so as to be virtually undetectable through the cord itself. The starting system in general has also been simplified, while a manual fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button, reducing the number of starting strokes required after long breaks in operation

Comfortable operation

As a bike-handled machine, the FS 56 C-E is ideal when used with a harness. This provides an extra level of manoeuvrability and comfort, enabling a smooth mowing action. It allows the machine to be easily guided, perfect for when you are working in large areas and reducing fatigue.
