FS 560 C-EM
Professional grade, powerful clearing saw with Easy2Start™ system and STIHL M-Tronic™ feature.
The most powerful STIHL clearing saw in its class – the FS 560 C-EM cuts through wild growth, hedges and thickets with a rugged design ideal for heavy landscape and forest cutting. Powered by a low-emission engine that is 12% more fuel-efficient than the previous model, the STIHL FS 560 C-EM clearing saw features the STIHL M-Tronic™ engine management system, which provides optimum engine power at all times and automatically adjusts to changes in elevation, temperature and air filter cleanliness. A large 33.5 oz. translucent fuel tank – 31% larger than the previous model – offers longer run times and less refueling.
This clearing saw also comes standard with the Easy2Start™ system, which requires minimal pulling force to start the engine. The 4-point anti-vibration system allows optimal control while reducing fatigue, and an easy-to-adjust, soft-grip bike handle swivels for easy transport and storage.

STIHL M-Tronic™ System
The STIHL M-Tronic™ system intelligently manages the operating performance of the engine. Equipment performance can be affected by a dirty air filter, changes in elevation or poor fuel quality. The STIHL M-Tronic™ system compensates for these factors by eliminating the low and high-speed carburetor adjustment screws and electronically monitoring the engine and digitally controlling the fuel/air mixture. This new technology also provides a simplified warm start procedure.
STIHL has a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
