Lightweight hedge trimmer for Land owners and professionals

With its powerful STIHL 2-MIX engine and intuitive controls, the STIHL HS 56 hedge trimmer is ideal for landscape gardeners and agriculturists. The special cutter geometry and double-sided cutting blade enable you to cut with absolute precision – horizontally, vertically and in corners. This means that you can trimhedges and shrubs efficiently and easily using the STIHL HS 56 petrol hedge trimmer. The single-lever operation function also makes it easier to use the power tool, offering access to all essential functions via a single lever.

Comfort while you work is also important. The STIHL anti-vibration system absorbs engine vibrations to protect your muscles and joints. The tool-free fuel cap also helps you to work efficiently, as you can quickly top up the fuel and then get straight back to work. The STIHL HS 56 is equipped with a tip protector to shield the blades and transmission, but also to protect the power tool from obstacles close to the hedge, such as walls. The carrying ring in the handle allows the hedge trimmer to be hung on the wall to save space. You can find out how to ensure that you enjoy your hedge trimmer for a long time to come with our tips for regular care and maintenance.

The HS 56 C-E petrol hedge trimmer has a bar length of 60 cm.
