KM 56 RC-E Petrol KombiEngine: Lightweight KombiEngine, perfect for garden and home maintenace

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.
