Powerful manoeuvrable tiller
The STIHL tiller MH 560 is perfect both for working in between existing rows of plants and preparing medium-sized plots of land. Combined with the powerful engine, the tilling width of 60 cm ensures maximum manoeuvrability and mobility. The reverse gear also makes it so much easier to manoeuvre the machine and change the direction of travel. The working width of the blades can be reduced to 40 cm to allow the machine to work in even narrower spaces. The height of the brake spur can be adjusted to one of three settings to ensure the tiller holds a straight line. During operation, the blades penetrate the soil in a cutting rather than a chopping action. This results in the tiller running more smoothly and generating fewer vibrations. The integrated anti-vibration system absorbs the vibrations from the engine. The height-adjustable handlebar allows you to perform ground work with minimal effort while sparing your muscles and joints. In order to withstand persistent loads, this STIHL tiller is manufactured from extremely durable components such as a forged crankshaft, an aluminium gearbox housing and a worm shaft made of hardened steel.

Simple throttle actuation
The STIHL tiller can be steered using both handles. The throttle is within reach of the handles and so the speed controller on the handlebar can be operated with the thumb while steering. As a result, the power of the tiller can be controlled precisely when tilling.
Anti-vibration system Anti-vibration system
The anti-vibration system is integrated in the handlebar mount on the STIHL tiller. It reduces the vibrations at the handlebar, which also reduces the effort required to operate the machine for extended periods.
The blades on the STIHL tiller have a special shape that turns the soil over extremely efficiently with an optimised burrowing action.
Dividable hoe set
The dividable hoe set accompanying this STIHL tiller allows the variable adjustment of the working width. As a result, crops can be planted in rows close to one another. The lateral discs protect existing plants from sustaining damage during tilling.
Swivelling brake spur
The brake spur can be used to adjust the blade entry depth. The 180° swivelling spur makes it easier to work with the STIHL tiller in narrow passages and bends. It is also easily accessible, can be set to 3 different heights and is captive.
This STIHL tiller is fitted with a wheel axle at the rear for smooth transportation. The pair of wheels can be folded up during operation.
Kohler OHV engine with SmartChoke
This STIHL tiller is powered by a Kohler four-stroke engine that incorporates OHV technology. Overhead valves ensure that the petrol/air mixture burns especially cleanly and efficiently. The SmartChoke system makes sure that the tiller starts up easily and reliably. The forged crankshaft and cast iron cylinder liner were developed to guarantee a long service life.
The handlebar on the STIHL tiller can be adjusted laterally and longitudinally without using tools. The handlebar on the tiller can be folded over to allow simple transportation and space-saving storage.
In the cleaning position, the blades on the STIHL tiller are easy to clean, assemble and disassemble.
