A great all-round KombiEngine.

STIHL's KM 56 RC-E has simplified starting and the versatility of the superb KombiTools system, allowing you to pick and choose the tools you'll need for your garden chores. This is just the engine unit, so you will need at least one KombiTool to be able to use it.

Embrace the versatility of STIHL's KombiSystem

Once you have purchased this KombiEngine, you will be able to pick from the full range of STIHL KombiTools. That means you can have a blower, hedge trimmer, brushcutter, mowing head and more, allowing you to tackle any garden job. The tools are easy to add and remove thanks to a quick-release coupling.

Effortlessly easy starting

Because this unit has STIHL's ErgoStart technology on board, the effort required to start the tool is cut by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force (with just two fingers and a gentle pull action). An electronic ignition system and manual fuel pump increase the reliability of starting and help to reduce the number of starting strokes respectively, and the starting procedure in general has also been simplified.

Comfortable, precise operation

Using the unit's loop handle allows you to achieve excellent close control, with this machine coming into its own when working in tight or confined spaces, such as when thinning between bushes and shrubs. Because of the split-shaft design, it is also easy to store and transport.

This is the engine only - a KombiTool accessory must be purchased to use it.
