    Product Details & Features

    Long grass, weeds and undergrowth are no match for the Stihl FS56RC-E brushcutter. The FS56RC-E is mid-range in Stihl’s line up of smaller brushcutters that are suited to maintenance of the larger garden.

    A key feature of the FS56RC-E is Stihl’s ErgoStart system. This is a spring assisted starting system which helps to make starting the engine feel almost effortless.

    Stihl’s fuel efficient 2-Mix 2-stroke engine is fitted to the FS56RC-E and provides plenty of power to the nylon line cutting head. The cutter head is a bump feed head which means that when the mowing line is worn, you can simply tap the head on the ground gently and more line will be released automatically. When it is time to refill the cutting head, reloading cord is very easy.

    For tougher mowing conditions, an optional metal grass cutting blade is available.

    The comfortable loop handle configuration makes picking up and putting down the FS56RC-E quick and easy. The FS56RC-E can be used with or without a harness. Should you prefer to use a harness, the FS56RC-E is supplied with a shoulder harness as standard to help distribute the weight of the brushcutter.

    Stihl manufacture a large range of brushcutters, many of which are used by professional operators. Although from the homeowner range, the FS56RC-E is still built to Stihl’s exacting standards to ensure durability and reliability.

    Extend your warranty by an extra year

    Purchase a 5 litre bottle of Stihl MotoMix at the same time as buying this machine, and you'll get an extra year on your domestic use warranty - extending your warranty from two years to three. This is subject to Stihl's warranty terms, and machines used in a commercial application don't benefit from the warranty extension.

    Simply add 5 litres of MotoMix to your cart alongside your machine before placing your order and we'll register your extended warranty with Stihl.
