Features

SH 56

Standard features

  • STIHL 2-MIX engine with stratified charge system
    STIHL 2-MIX engine with stratified charge system

    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.

  • Multi-function control handle Zoom
    Multi-function control handle

    This houses all the engine controls. Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.

  • Integrated shoulder strap for vacuum bag Zoom
    Integrated shoulder strap for vacuum bag

    The integrated shoulder strap makes vacuuming for long periods of time less tiring. Allowing for much more movement whilst helping to support the weight of the collection bag.

  • Manual fuel pump (purger) Zoom
    Manual fuel pump (purger)

    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.

Additional features

  • STIHL ElastoStart Zoom
    STIHL ElastoStart

    STIHL ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. The compression shock is taken away from the user's joints and muscles through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle.
