Stihl FS56RC-E Grass Trimmer Description

The Stihl FS56RC-E grass trimmer is a versatile tool that can be used for a variety of tasks around the home and garden. It is perfect for trimming grass, weeds, and brush, as well as for clearing paths and small areas of woodland. The FS56RC-E is powered by a 2-stroke engine with stratified charge technology, which provides up to 20% more power and 50% lower emissions than a traditional 2-stroke engine. The trimmer is also lightweight and easy to use, making it a great choice for homeowners and light-duty professional users.

The FS56RC-E is equipped with a TapAction™ AutoCut® 25-2 cutting head that automatically feeds new line when the old line wears out. This makes it easy to keep the cutting head sharp and prevents you from having to stop to refill the line. The cutting head also has a built-in safety mechanism that prevents the line from unwinding if the trimmer is accidentally turned off.

The FS56RC-E comes with a single strap harness that helps to distribute the weight of the trimmer evenly and reduce fatigue. The harness also has a number of adjustment points that allow you to customize the fit for your body.

The Stihl FS56RC-E is a great choice for homeowners and light-duty professional users who need a powerful, efficient, and versatile grass trimmer. It is easy to use, comfortable to operate, and produces low emissions.

Stihl FS56RC-E Grass Trimmer Features

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.

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 strokes required following extended breaks in operations.

STIHL ErgoStart (E) - STIHL ErgoStart 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. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.

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.
