Characterised by its impressive construction quality and high-specification engine, the German-manufactured STIHL FS56 C-E Lightweight Brushcutter will come into its own in the hands of the more exacting domestic gardening enthusiast!

Key amongst numerous premium-grade engine features is STIHL’s ErgoStart ignition system, which reduces the amount of effort that’s needed to achieve ignition by a huge 20%. Prior to starting, all you need to do is apply choke and prime the carburettor, and then you’re ready to go.

The powerful 1.1hp (27.2cc) engine also benefits from the employment of the latest stratified-charge technology, which minimises fuel loss, in turn leading to a 20% reduction in fuel consumption when compared to a conventional two-stroke unit. Exhaust emissions are also significantly reduced.

Fitted with a professional ‘bike’-type handlebar, and weighing in at only 5.2kg, the STIHL FS56 C-E Brushcutter can be swept from side to side with minimal effort expended on the part of the operator. The provision of a double shoulder harness further improves user comfort.

The STIHL FS56 C-E comes equipped with an AutoCut line head with a handy bump-feed mechanism. A heavy-duty brush blade is available as an optional accessory.

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.
