The STIHL HS 56 C-E 24" is a petrol hedge trimmer designed for semi-professional use. If you are looking for a robust, lightweight hedge trimmer that is easy to start and a dream to use then look no further. A number of standard features such as ErgoStart, anti-vibration system, double-sided cutter blades and the ergonomic loop make the HS 56 C-E the tool of choice for land owners and professional gardeners. A longer bar size than other models also make it popular.
STIHL 2-MIX-Engine - The STIHL 2-mix engine specially designed for the new generation of hedge trimmer combines low consumption and emissions with low weight and excellent acceleration. There are also always sufficient power reserves for cutting thicker shrubs.
Tip protection - The comfort variants HS 46 C and HS 56 C come with tip protection as standard, which prevents damage to both the blade and the gear, but also to things that lie near the hedgerow (e.g. natural stone wall). It also makes it easier to cut ground cover plants.
Electronic ignition module - This ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running. The ignition system is fully encapsulated and thus protected from damp and dirt.
Manual fuel pump (Purger) - A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
Anti-vibration system - Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
STIHL ErgoStart (E) - A genuine advance in easy starting. STIHL ErgoStart (E) cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. All it takes is 2 fingers and a gentle pull action.
Long-life air filter system - Ensures longer cleaning intervals and better protection of the engine
