Other features of the Stihl KM 56 RC-E Kombi Engine:

Standard features

  • Electronic ignition module
    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
    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{d09b12be51a7a6a48787a7bc3312473190ccc1fdbfe07795db7f7cb91fdca1cd} lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

  • Simplified starting system
    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)
    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
    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{d09b12be51a7a6a48787a7bc3312473190ccc1fdbfe07795db7f7cb91fdca1cd} by repeatedly pressing the pump. By starting in this way, there is enough fuel available faster. (similar to illustration)

  • Loop handle (R)
    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
    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
