Advanced combustion technology
Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. The result is lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range.
STIHL 2-MIX Engine
2-stroke engine with stratified charge. This results in more power with up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.
STIHL has developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
Prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.
Single-lever master control
All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.
STIHL ErgoStart (E)
STIHL ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.
Ematic chain lubrication system
Ensures pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails. When used with STIHL Oilomatic saw chain, it will provide maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication.
Pre-separation air filtration system
STIHL long-life air filtration systems with pre-separation achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional filter systems.
Chain Quick Tensioning (B)
After releasing the sprocket cover the chain can be adjusted using a thumb wheel without the need for tools.
Tool free filler caps
Special catches on the fuel and oil tanks for easy opening and locking without the need for tools.
