An easy to use, perfectly balanced petrol strimmer.
Part of STIHL's new generation of garden machinery, this light, ergonomic strimmer is perfect for edging lawns and maintaining small areas of grass.
Using the innovative ErgoStart system, you can expect easy, jerk free starting. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smooths force peaks so that they are virtually undetectable through the cord. You can use just one third of the normal force to pull the starter cord, with the overall effort necessary to start the tool cut in half. The starting procedure in general has been simplified, making convenient operation a hallmark of this machine.
Reduced-emission engine design
The FS 50 C-E makes use of STIHL's clever 2-stroke engine with stratified charge. This creates a fuel-free layer of air between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase. In practice, this reduces the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle, resulting in more power with a lower weight, up to 20 percent lower fuel consumption and significantly lower exhaust emissions, compared to regular 2-stroke engines.
Easy, comfortable operation
Thanks to easy, comfortable, thumb-operated control, your hand never has to leave the handle. This loop handle allows for heightened control in tight areas, ideal for trimming small sections of grass or around obstacles. It can be easily adjusted without the need for tools, and combined with the light, perfectly balanced design, you can enjoy comfortable, ergonomic operation.
