Features

FS 55

Standard features

  • STIHL 2-MIX-Engine Zoom
    STIHL 2-MIX-Engine

    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.

  • Bike handle Zoom
    Bike handle

    When used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle enables a smooth mowing action. The bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, making it ideal for working on large areas and thus reducing fatigue.

  • Multi-function control handle Zoom

    Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.

Additional features

  • STIHL ErgoStart Zoom
    STIHL ErgoStart

    STIHL ErgoStart 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. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.

  • STIHL ElastoStart
    STIHL ElastoStart

    STIHL ElastoStart is a special starter handle which ensures a smooth starting process without any sudden peak forces. The integral damper smooths the power profile that is generated during starting and makes the starting process a lot easier.
