Stihl HS56 C-E Hedgetrimmers
The heavier duty Stihl HS 56 C-E petrol hedge trimmers are perfect for trimming thicker hedges and for semi professional use. Double-sided cutting blades at 60cm blade length with tip protector prevents damage to both the blade and the gear, but also to vegetation that lies near the hedges and shrubs like natural stone walling. It also makes it easier to cut ground cover plants.
These petrol hedgetrimmers also feature the Stihl ErgoStart which facilitates easy starting. The STIHL ErgoStart (E) halves the effort required to start the hedge cutter, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. All it takes is 2 fingers and a gentle pull action. The electronic ignition module is fully encapsulated to protect it from damp and dirt, whilst ensuring reliable starting and trouble-free running.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. Stihl developed an anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
The long-life air filter system ensures longer cleaning intervals and better protection of the hedgecutters engine.
Other features include:
The STIHL 2-mix engine combines low fuel consumption and emissions with its light weight and excellent acceleration. There are also always sufficient power reserves for cutting thicker shrubs.
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 pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
Tool free filler cap
Patented special filler caps for fuel and oil. These filler caps can be opened and closed again quickly and easily, without tools.
