In order ensure starting is as reliable and stress-free as possible, STIHL have equipped its high-performance 1.1hp (27.2cc) engine with their sought-after ErgoStart system, which lessens the pulling-force required to achieve ignition by an impressive 20-percent.

Thanks to its compact ‘loop’ handle, the STIHL FS56 RC-E Lightweight Brushcutter is perfect for use in areas where space is at a premium. Its optimised centre-of-gravity, low-weight design (4.8kg) and shoulder-harness all work to ensure you’ll be able to complete the task in comfort.
