Suitable for tougher clearing applications over larger areas, this lightweight, new-generation brushcutter from STIHL offers high-end German engineering at a price affordable for the keen home gardener.
Key to its superior cutting ability is its combination of a solid drive-shaft with a high-powered 1.0hp (27.2cc) engine, which ensures ample torque is delivered to the cutter-head.
So as to ensure fuel-consumption and exhaust-emissions are kept at the lowest possible levels, STIHL have equipped the engine with their Stratified-Charge technology, whereby fuel-loss during the charge-cycle is minimised, in turn saving on costs.
The starting-system is far simpler than most comparable brushcutters – all you need to do is set the requisite amount of choke, press the primer-bulb, tug the starter-cord, and the engine will fire-up.
The STIHL FS55 is fitted with a ‘bike’ handle, which enables a smooth, side-to-side sweeping action with greatly reduced operator fatigue. Its impressively lightweight build (5.1kg) and ergonomic multi-function grip contribute further to ease of use.
An AutoCut mowing-head is included.
