Stihl FS56RC-E Straight-Shaft Grass Trimmer

If you are looking for the ultimate tool that will keep long grass and weeds at bay, look no further than this top-of-the-range Stihl grass trimmer. Made with Reduced-Emission Engine technology, this device offers more power than other straight-shaft trimmers, all while remaining fuel efficient and cleaner for the environment.

What's more, the trimmer is extremely easy to use. Boasting Stihl's easy to start technology, it removes the need for a strong pull on the starting cord. Its multi-function control handle also lets you access all controls without your hand ever having to leave the handle. In addition, its anti-vibration system minimises vibrations levels, eliminating user fatigue and providing a more pleasant working experience.


  • Stihl 2-MIX engine: 2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20 percent lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.
  • Basic harness: For use with loop handle machines
  • Loop handle: The loop handled grass trimmers and brush cutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs
  • Simplified starting system: Simply set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and away you go! The running machine then switches off after a brief press of the stop button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically. Thus the ignition is always ready for starting
  • Manual fuel pump (purger): A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations
  • Goggles: It is important to protect your eyes from flying particles and harmful UV radiation. Therefore a pair of safety goggles/glasses is supplied with the machine. Note: Additional face protection must be worn when working with brush cutters
  • Advance plus universal harness: With a comfort carry ring for quickly attaching and removing the clearing saw
  • Stihl ErgoStart: Stihl ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one-third of the normal force. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself
  • Advance universal harness: Soft padding makes work more comfortable during longer jobs
  • Shoulder strap/carrying system: Using a Stihl shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs
