Stihl FS50C-E 27.2cc Petrol Grass Trimmer Loop Handle ErgoStart

New generation light ergonomic brushcutter with STIHL ErgoStart for easy jerk free starting. Ideal for tackling grassy areas around the garden or at the allotment. Modern appearance, convenient operation and very simple starting procedure are the highlights of the new generation STIHL grass trimmer range. The number of steps needed to start the machine has been drastically reduced. The frustration of a flooded engine is virtually eliminated. New 2-stroke engine with stratified charge allows fast acceleration, low emissions, reduced fuel consumption. With bent shaft, loop handle and AutoCut mowing head ideally for trimming small areas of grass and around obstacles. Ideal for edging as well as for small areas of grass. The loop handle can easily be adjusted for comfortable operation without the use of tools. Also available without STIHL ErgoStart easy-start system (FS 50).

Reduced-Emission Engine Technology
2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

Simplified Starting System
Simply set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and away you go! The running machine then switches off after a brief press of the stop button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically. Thus the ignition is always ready for starting.

Loop Handle
The loop handled grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs.

Stihl ErgoStart
STIHL ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.

Multi-Function Control Handle
Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.

Good value product.
Great strimmer but a bit noisy when running!
Review by Fred / (Posted on 13/06/2018)
Really lightweight tool
Really good piece of kit this one although did take some time to put together. The huard which you need to attach was a little out of shape as the plastic had been pushed together to much which then didn’t allow it to push in to the head properly, but managed in the end. The oil that was supposed to come with it wasn’t with it but after an email it arrived the next day, and very helpful staff.

Great product as you would expect from Stihl.
Bought a Einhell Model initially from a different supplier trying to save money but knew at the time that saving money on tools is never a good idea. Sent it back and ordered the Stihl. Starts in 3 pulls or less, plenty of power and runs smooth. Lessons learnt, buy the best and you will enjoy using it every time.

Questions about Stihl FS50C-E 27.2cc Petrol Grass Trimmer Loop Handle ErgoStart

  • Peter Hart asked on January 2nd, 2019:

    Q: What bulk line would you recommend for this strimmer?

    The Stihl FS50 takes 2.0mm (Green) Line, so any length or variant of this is fine.
