The perfect KombiEngine for general garden chores.

The KM 56 RC-E has been designed as an easy to use engine unit for STIHL's KombiSystem, giving you the versatility to take on all-manner of garden jobs, without complication or hassle. As this is just the engine, you will need at least one KombiTool to be able to use the machine.

Simplified, effortless starting

If you hate the complexity of starting some petrol machinery, STIHL have just the solution. The ErgoStart system is a genuine advance in easy starting technology. It cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just a third of the normal force - two fingers and a gentle pull is all it takes. An electronic ignition module ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running, while a manual fuel pump allows you to reduce the number of starting strokes. The starting process generally has been drastically simplified - just set the choke, pump the fuel primer and pull the starter cord.

Comfortable, precise operation

As a loop-handled machine, the KM 56 RC-E provides excellent close control and ease of use in confined spaces. It is ideal for more precise tasks, such as trimming edges or between bushes. When the time comes to change tools, quick-release coupling makes it easy, and a split shaft with tool-less release means the machine is easy to store and transport.

Tackle virtually anything your garden can throw at you

The KM 56 RC-E is compatible with all STIHL KombiTools, so you can use a blower, floor sweeper, hedge trimmer, grass strimmer - almost every task in the garden is catered for with the KombiSystem. This product is just the engine, so in order to use the machine you will need to purchase at least one KombiTool.

This is the engine only - a KombiTool accessory must be purchased to use it.

Good engine, not too expensive, but from experience probably will only last 5-6 years with regular use.
