The FS 56 RC-E is a versatile straight shaft brushcutter featuring stratified charge engine technology that cuts fuel consumption by 20% and exhaust emissions by 50%. It is equipped with the Easy2Start™ system for effortless starting, a TapAction™ AutoCut® 25-2 cutting head for easy line refilling, and a stop switch that automatically returns to start position. This unit is ideal for homeowner or light-duty professional use.
2-stroke 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.
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.
Loop handle (R): The loop handled grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs.
Shoulder strap / carrying system: Using a STIHL shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.
