HS 56 C-E Professional Hedge Trimmer Powers through Tough Tasks

STIHL HS 56 C-E features a reduced-emission engine for lessened environmental impact


Ideal for cutting and pruning hedges, bushes and shrubs, the powerful STIHL HS 56 C-E hedge trimmer is a great value for professionals. Compared to the HS 81, the HS 56 C-E hedge trimmer is more balanced and significantly lighter, helping reduce operator fatigue and has 68 percent less exhaust emissions, lowering the impact on the environment. The reduced-emission engine also delivers improved fuel efficiency for longer run times.


Increased blade rigidity, a new blade tooth geometry and double- sided 24-inch cutter bar provide better trimming performance. A new ergonomic loop handle provides increased comfort for the user, and t he Easy2Start™ system combined with the single Master Control Lever™ makes starting the HS 56 C-E quick and easy. A blade tip guard helps prevent damage to the blade, gearbox and objects near the hedge.

Ergonomic, fuel efficient and environmentally responsible, the STIHL HS 56 C-E is a great value to power professionals through tough tasks.
