A great entry point into STIHL's range of petrol brushcutters.
With its low weight and compact size, the FS 55 R is ideal for anyone looking for an entry level petrol brushcutter.
Loop-handled control excels in tough conditions
Coming as standard with an AutoCut line head and loop-handled control, the FS 55 R is a great tool for working in areas where space is limited, such as when thinning between bushes and shrubs, or working on difficult terrain and confined conditions.
Easy starting & reliable operation
Because the FS 55 R has en electronic ignition module, you can rely on its consistent starting performance and trouble-free running. The ignition system itself is fully encapsulated, proofing it against damp and dirt ingress. A manual fuel pump is also available, to deliver fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button and reduce the number of starting strokes required after breaks in operation.
Comfortable to use
The loop-handled control means you have excellent precision when working with this machine, but the multi-function control handle is also a great bonus when it comes to comfort and reducing fatigue. With all the controls easily within reach, your hand never has to leave the handle.
