If you appreciate top-quality German engineering, and have an unruly garden to keep in check, then the STIHL FS55 R Lightweight Petrol Brushcutter will prove a fantastic buy!

Its high-powered 27.2cc (1.0hp) engine incorporates STIHL’s cutting-edge stratified charge technology – this means that fuel wastage during the charge cycle is greatly limited, which in turn ensures rapid acceleration with reduced fuel costs and a drastic reduction in harmful exhaust emissions.

Getting the engine going could hardly be easier: you simply apply your required amount of choke, deliver some fuel to the carburettor via the primer bulb, and then pull the starter cord. The ignition resets to ‘on’ when the engine is stopped, so it’s always ready to be started.

The fully adjustable ‘loop-and-bar’ handle on the STIHL FS55 R Petrol Brushcutter makes it ideally suited for use on adverse terrain, and in awkward, space restricted areas (for example, thinning-work between shrubs and bushes).

It weighs a mere 4.9kg, so large-scale applications can be completed in comfort.

An AutoCut bump-feed line head and harness are also included, with a metal blade available separately.

Shipping Info

Shipping Info

If you’re buying a boxed product, we aim to get your order delivered next working day – UK mainland where possible.

If you’re buying a tractor or ride-on mower – a special order item – it could be slightly longer, as we need to PDI the machine.

We do try and van-deliver these machines if we can, as this gives us a chance to demonstrate the product, and to ensure you’re happy and confident with your purchase.

If we can’t van-deliver your machine, as you’re out of our local delivery area, the tractor will be sent on a pallet via a courage company. They will then contact you directly to book a specific day and time that suits you.
