    Does anyone know if there are blades, polycuts, etc for the stihl fs 56 rc?

    Been looking for a bit but nothing seems certain regarding this model...the thick brush is eating up my line so its time to upgrade to a better cutter.

    Thnx

    I have FS130 that I run string, polycut and metal blade. I really have not been impressed with the polycuts and the basic orange string sucks too. I don't know if a metal blade is a option for your machine but worth checking into. I recently switched to Stihl CF3 Pro string and I'm pretty happy with the results.

    I think that's the model I have. I bought these to clear some brush and they work very well.

    The different colors are different tooth patterns. From what I'm using it for, it seems the green does better for me. The red is more toward "woody" stuff, where the green is still good in small brush but better with grass and vines. I plan to buy more when these wear out.

    Stihl brush blade I do believe is supposed to work with it.

    I just finished clearing an area in 30min that has haunted me for the last couple of years...
