KM 56 RC-E

Easy to start and light-weight KombiEngine with ErgoStart (E). The ideal KombiEngine for all around-the-garden tasks.

One engine with many optional tools that can handle a variety of tasks would be just one way to describe the STIHL KombiSystem. From edging to trimming, to sweeping and even blowing—the low-emission STIHL KM 56 RC-E and its optional attachments are great for a wide range of jobs around the garden. Featuring our ErgoStart (E) system and a new simplified starting procedure that helps prevent flooding, there’s no longer a need for a strong or fast pull of the starting cord.

  • Electronic ignition module
    This ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running. The ignition system is fully encapsulated and thus protected from damp and dirt.
  • Reduced-emission engine technology
    2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.
  • Simplified starting system
    Simply set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and away you go! The running machine switches off quickly after a brief press of the stop button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically. Thus the ignition is always ready for starting.
  • STIHL ErgoStart (E)
    A genuine advance in easy starting. STIHL ErgoStart (E) cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. All it takes is 2 fingers and a gentle pull action.
  • Manual fuel pump
    If your gasoline-powered engine device has a manual fuel pump, you can reduce the number of starting strokes by about 40% by repeatedly pressing the pump. By starting in this way, there is enough fuel available faster. (similar to illustration)
  • Loop handle (R)
    The loop handled grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs.
  • Quick-release coupling
    The quick-release coupling allows the KombiSystem to be quickly dismantled into two parts for easy transport and storage – and then re-assembled quickly without tools.
  • Split shaft
    With a split shaft and special toolless quick-release coupling, the KombiSystem is highly versatile, easily transported and easy to store.
  • This unique innovation from STIHL transforms the KombiSystem into a fully-fledged high-performance blower. Just like all KombiTools the STIHL blower can be easily attached to the KombiEngine to provide you with an ideal tool for clearing surfaces, flower beds and paths of leaves, mowed grass, litter or powdery snow. Approved for KombiEngines with loop handles.
