Gas Clearing Saw

The STIHL FS 561 C-EM (mowing) is a very powerful clearing saw that will assist you in professional work in forest and landscape maintenance and generally for large-area mowing work. Its large mowing circle diameter of 560 mm enables you to work highly efficiently, even under challenging conditions. Thanks to a STIHL BrushCut brush knife with three blades, you can even rely on very fast mowing progress when using the FS 561 C-EM (mowing) in work in forest and road maintenance. You can efficiently thin out or remove even heavy vegetation, such as matted grass and weeds.

STIHL ErgoStart makes this brushcutter effortless to start. STIHL M-Tronic 3.0 also ensures consistently optimal engine performance at a constant maximum engine speed – and therefore comfortable operation of your power tool. This robust, professional clearing saw also causes only low vibrations, so it is comfortable to work with even in the face of difficult challenges. The ergonomic bike handle (mowing handle), which supports the natural scything movement, also contributes to this.

The optimised guard at the lower end of the power tool provides a good view of the work surface and is also convenient when storing your brushcutter.
