A professional, straight-shaft edger powered by a proven low-emission engine.
The STIHL FC 96 professional edger doesn’t just clean up edges in your landscape, it cuts you a new one. The FC 96 has all the hardworking features of the FC 95 but has more power.

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.
