The STIHL FC 96 professional edger doesn’t just clean up edges in your landscape, it cuts you a new one. Featuring a low exhaust emission engine, it has a larger fuel tank providing 30% longer run times than the previous model. So whether you’re touching up existing walkways or creating new lines in dense, compacted soil, this edger helps you achieve a clean, finished appearance. It even features a vertical pleated paper air filter for extended service intervals, one touch stop, and an easy three-step start procedure enabled by the semi-automatic choke lever. When you need a powerful edger, the FC 96 will give you the edge you’re looking for.
