 OVERVIEW: 

The STIHL FS 50 C-E is a lightweight trimmer that doesn’t skimp on the features. This grass trimmer features a dependable, low-emission engine that is 20% more fuel efficient than our previous model (FS 46). It also features Easy2Start™ technology for quick, smooth starts, as well as TapAction™, AutoCut® C 5-2 cutting head for faster line reloads. Combined with a longer shaft for tall users, this trimmer stands head and shoulders above the competition.


Features

 FEATURES:

  • Upright Translucent Fuel Tank: Allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work. Upright position makes it easier to refill.

  • Simplified Starting Procedure: To get started, simply pump the fuel primer, set the choke and pull the starter cord. The built-in stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a simple press of the button. When the engine is off, the throttle lock automatically returns to the “start” setting. Your power tool will be ready to be started when you’re ready to get back to work.

  • Throttle Trigger Interlock: Must be depressed before the trigger can be activated.
  • Made in America: A majority of STIHL products sold in America are made in America of U.S. and global materials.
  • Loop Handle (R): Loop handle grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for trimming between bushes and shrubs and other areas where space is limited.
  • Purge Pump Primer: By pressing the bulb, this small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburetor, reducing the number of starting pulls needed after an extended break between uses.
  • Heavy-Duty Steel-On-Steel Clutch: Centrifugal clutch is designed to reduce slippage.
  • Protected Spark Plug: Protected yet easy to change.
  • Tool-Free Handle Adjustment: The central wing nut enables easy adjustment without the use of tools. For transportation and space-saving storage, the handle can be rotated 90°.
  • Protected Choke Lever/Knob: Helps prevent damage.
  • Air Filter Cover: Easily removed for fast and easy filter cleaning or replacement.
  • Protected or Enclosed Control Cables: Eliminate dangling and loose wires.

This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products easier. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.
