The first semi-professional petrol hedge trimmer.

If you are looking for a powerful, robust, lightweight and comfortable petrol hedge trimmer that provides that extra level of quality compared to domestic units, the HS 56 C-E is a great option. This model has a 24 inch / 60 cm double-sided cutting blade.

Efficient & powerful 2-MIX engine

Featuring STIHL's 2-MIX engine technology, the HS 56 C-E has low fuel consumption, low emissions, a low weight and supreme acceleration. With additional power in reserve, this tool has the extra to call upon when needed if dealing with particularly difficult shrubs or other vegetation. The engine is protected by a long-life air filter system, which ensures longer cleaning intervals and better protection.

Comfortable operation

A big problem with many power tools is the intense vibrations they have, which can cause serious health problems when the tools are used for long periods. Fortunately, STIHL's products feature an anti-vibration system that dampens the oscillations from the machine's engine to significantly reduce vibrations at the handles. This also ensures more comfortable operation and allows you to work for longer without fatigue. Similarly, single-lever operation with the choke, start gas, operating position and stop function all integrated into one operating element allows for superbly easy operation and more comfortable use.

Simple to start

Thanks to the ErgoStart system, difficult starting procedures are a thing of the past. This technology reduces the effort required to start the tool by half, while allowing the starter cord to be pulled with just one third of the normal force. Just two fingers and a gentle pull is all that's required. A manual fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button, which helps minimise the number of starting pulls required after extended breaks in operation, and an electronic ignition module facilitates reliable starting and trouble-free running.

Easy to start and great cut. As with all Stihl products, an excellent build quality. Not heavy to use. This is a good medium size for cutting different sized garden hedges.
