Lightweight petrol hedge trimmer with ErgoStart (E)
The STIHL HS 46 C-E at 4.3kg is the lightest petrol hedge trimmer in the STIHL range. A number of standard features such as ErgoStart, anti-vibration system and the new master control lever, that combines the choke, startup, operating position and stop functions all in one – a worldwide first on a petrol hedge trimmer, make the HS 46 C-E the tool of choice for domestic use. If you are looking for a robust, lightweight hedge trimmer that is easy to start and a dream to use then look no further.
The STIHL 2-mix engine specially designed for the new generation of hedge trimmer combines low consumption and emissions with low weight and excellent acceleration. There are also always sufficient power reserves for cutting thicker shrubs.
The comfort variants HS 46 C and HS 56 C come with tip protection as standard, which prevents damage to both the blade and the gear, but also to things that lie near the hedgerow (e.g. natural stone wall). It also makes it easier to cut ground cover plants. (similar to illustration)
This ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running. The ignition system is fully encapsulated and thus protected from damp and dirt.
A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
A genuine advance in easy starting. STIHL ErgoStart (E) 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. All it takes is 2 fingers and a gentle pull action.
Ensures longer cleaning intervals and better protection of the engine.
Patented special filler caps for fuel and oil. These filler caps can be opened and closed again quickly and easily, without tools.
The choke, start gas, operating position and stop function are integrated onto one operating element. Stop button with a single lever operation After pressing the stop button, the shaft jumps back to position I. The hedge trimmer is ready to start again immediately, thus preventing an incorrect operation. (similar to illustration)
The cutting blade is double sided. The sophisticated blade geometry makes for a job well done.
