KM 56 R-C



The STIHL KM 56 RC-E petrol KombiEngine is a power tool that can be operated with a variety of KombiTools from the STIHL KombiSystem. The KM 56 RC-E is designed primarily for private users who want to use a single engine to complete their work aroand the house, yard and garden.

The KombiEngine is based on the economical STIHL 2-MIX engine . The STIHL KM 56 RC-E petrol KombiEngine is equipped with STIHL Easy2Start, which ensures a smooth start-up process and guarantees effortless starting. The electronic ignition system ensures trouble-free engine operation and reduces exhaust emissions. After a pause in work, the engine can be restarted immediately thanks to the stop button.

The ergonomic loop handle with barrier bar supports you when working in confined spaces, while the padded harness ensures comfort as you work. Thanks to the practical quick coupling with clamping screw on the STIHL KM 56 RC-E, you can quickly change the KombiTool and replace the STIHL FS-KM brushcutter with the STIHL FCB-KM edge trimmer, for example. Thanks to its detachable shaft, the KombiEngine can be dismantled to save space during transport or storage.

The STIHL KM 56 RC-E KombiEngine cannot be used with the STIHL RG-KM rotary cutting head.
