Stihl HS 56 C-E 24"/60CM


The STIHL HS 56 C-E is the first petrol hedge trimmer designed for semi-professional use. If you are looking for a robust, lightweight hedge trimmer that is easy to start and a dream to use then look no further. A number of standard features such as ErgoStart, anti-vibration system, double-sided cutter blades and the ergonomic loop make the HS 56 C-E the tool of choice for land owners and professional gardeners.

Anti-vibration system

Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.


Double-sided cutting blade

The cutting blade is double sided. The sophisticated blade geometry makes for a job well done.
