The most powerful STIHL clearing saw, for the toughest clearing jobs. Perfect for chopping in the woods and forest and for removing bushes and thorn trees. The FS 561 C-EM has a cutting diameter of 560 mm, 2.8 kW power and a 38 mm reinforced shaft, making it ideal for clearing large areas quickly and efficiently, without compromising on power. Fitted with a 2-MIX motor, M-Tronic 3.0 and a more robust clutch housing means the FS 561 C-EM is capable of sustained heavy usage. The clearing saw also has STIHL 4-point anti-vibration system, STIHL ErgoStart, a multi-function, two-handed handle, tool-free handle adjustment, easy starting and stop button, plus it comes with an ADVANCE PLUS forestry harness and is fitted with the WoodCut 225-24 circular saw blade.
This fully electronic engine management system adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating modes. It also takes external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality into account. It ensures consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. M-Tronic makes manual carburettor adjustments unnecessary. Thanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition, now there is only one start position on the combi-lever. The engine starts after fewer pulls and with no change of position, and can immediately accelerate up to speed – even after a cold start. M-Tronic also remembers the settings from the last time the tool was used. So when external conditions are the same, optimal engine performance is available every time you start up again.
Manual fuel Primer
A small fuel primer delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.
Multi-function control handle
Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator’s hand never leaves the handle.
Easy2Start makes starting STIHL power tools easy and straightforward, without requiring a lot of effort. The secret is an additional spring between the crankshaft and the starter rope rotor. STIHL power tools with STIHL Easy2Start are indicated by the letter “E” in the model name.
When used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle enables a smooth mowing action. The bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, making it ideal for working on large areas and thus reducing fatigue.
