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.

Extend your domestic warranty from 2 to 3 years with the purchase of 5 litres of STIHL MotoMix® fuel and this product. Your STIHL Approved Dealer will register your extended warranty on the STIHL warranty database at point of purchase.
