Features

Standard features

  • STIHL ANTI-VIBRATION SYSTEM Zoom
    STIHL ANTI-VIBRATION SYSTEM

    Vibrations from power tools can lead to negative effects on blood vessels. STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the levels. This also helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.

  • STIHL 2-MIX ENGINE Zoom

    The low-maintenance STIHL 2-MIX engine reduces emissions and fuel consumption while maintaining high efficiency, even at high power levels.

  • STIHL QUICK CHAIN TENSIONING (B) Zoom
    STIHL QUICK CHAIN TENSIONING (B)

  • PRIMER Zoom

    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required from a cold start.

  • SINGLE MASTER CONTROL LEVER Zoom
    SINGLE MASTER CONTROL LEVER

    All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.

  • STIHL ERGOSTART Zoom
    STIHL ERGOSTART

    Effortless starting is achieved with an extra spring positioned between the crankshaft and the rope rotor. A gentle pull on the starter rope engages the spring, reducing jerks and transmitting stored energy to the crankshaft, ensuring reliable engine start.

  • STIHL EMATIC SYSTEM Zoom
    STIHL EMATIC SYSTEM

    A reservoir holds bar oil until it is picked up by the passing chain. This achieves maximum lubrication resulting in longer wear and less oil consumption.

Additional features

  • REDUCED AIR FITLER MAINTENANCE Zoom
    REDUCED AIR FITLER MAINTENANCE

    The innovative long-life air filter system greatly extends the service life of the filter. Air routing removes larger particles of dirt, reducing tool maintenance.
