Handy long reach pole pruner

The STIHL HT 56 C-E petrol pole pruner is the entry-level model in the STIHL range and is ideal for groands maintenance and pruning fruit trees. The powerful STIHL 2-MIX engine will help land owners and gardeners cut trees at significant heights. The 1/4" PM3 saw chain ensures the right, accurate cut. Side-mounted chain tensioning lets you tension the chain safely and comfortably. For your comfort, the HT 56 C-E petrol pole pruner is equipped with STIHL ErgoStart, which enables you to start the engine easily and effortlessly. The manual fuel pump minimises the number of pulls needed to start the engine.

The STIHL HT 56 C-E pole pruner can be operated using the single-handed multi-function handle, which combines all the engine control elements you need, including a stop button that enables you to quickly restart the HT 56 C-E following a break in your work. The entire handle area is covered with a comfortable sleeve so you can always keep a secure hold on the telescopic chainsaw. A softly padded harness provides support and offers excellent working comfort.

The detachable shaft of the STIHL HT 56 C-E has a total length of 280 cm and allows for compact transport and easy storage of your power tool.
