MS 400 C-M Petrol Chainsaw

PROFESSIONAL 4.0 KW CHAINSAW WITH MAGNESIUM PISTON TECHNOLOGY

General

The new STIHL MS 400 C-M is the world's first chainsaw with a magnesium piston. The use of this lightweight material along with consistently light construction results in a motor weight of just 5.8 kilograms, meaning a remarkable power-to-weight ratio of less than 1.5 kilograms per kilowatt. At the same time, the new component also gives the machine an extraordinarily high maximum speed, helping you make quick progress in your work, particularly when delimbing. With this first-rate performance, the MS 400 C-M gives professional forestry workers what they want from a tool: plenty of power, with low weight.

Standard features

  • HD2 FILTER Zoom

    The HD2 filter protects your power tool’s engine against even the finest dust, ensuring a longer service life and reduced wear. The filter made from robust PET material and is oil and water-repellent, making it easier to clean the filter. The filter cartridge can also be easily replaced without tools.

  • 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.

  • 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
    STIHL 2-MIX ENGINE

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

  • STIHL M-TRONIC Zoom
    STIHL M-TRONIC

    The fully electronic engine management system with memory function regulates the ignition timing and the fuel supply and automatically registers the external temperature, for optimal engine performance, great acceleration and sustained maximum torque.

  • MAGNESIUM PISTON Zoom
    MAGNESIUM PISTON

    The extremely lightweight magnesium piston gives you an excellent power-to-weight ratio, allowing you to work efficiently and at high maximum speed.

  • COMPENSATOR Zoom
    COMPENSATOR

    The compensator is a control system in the carburettor, that uses pressure compensation to ensure that engine performance, exhaust gas quality and fuel consumption remain constant over a long period of time, despite increasing contamination of the air filter. You do not need to clean the air filter until there is a noticeable drop in performance, letting you work for a long time without maintenance.

  • CAPTIVE BAR NUTS Zoom
    CAPTIVE BAR NUTS

    Bar nuts are attached to the sprocket cover held, preventing the Bar nuts from getting lost of fall off when changing the cutting attachment.

  • STIHL FOUR-CHANNEL TECHNOLOGY Zoom
    STIHL FOUR-CHANNEL TECHNOLOGY

    STIHL four-channel technology enables you to operate your power tool with high performance and low fuel consumption. By guiding the fuel-and-air mixture into the cylinder through four overflow channels in a precise and compressed manner, the engine burns the fuel optimally and boosts its performance significantly.

  • SIDE CHAIN TENSIONING Zoom
    SIDE CHAIN TENSIONING

    The tensioning screw is located on the side of the chainsaw through the sprocket cover. Chain side tensioning allows the saw chain to be re-tensioned effortlessly, avoiding any contact with the sharp chain.

  • CARBURETTOR HEATING Zoom
    CARBURETTOR HEATING

    By changing the Chainsaw from summer to winter operation, the intake air is pre-heated over the engine fins. This ensures that the carburettor does not ice up and you can continue working in freezing temperatures.

  • TOOL-FREE FUEL AND OIL CAPS Zoom
    TOOL-FREE FUEL AND OIL CAPS

    Special caps on the fuel and oil tanks are designed for easy opening and locking without the need for tools.

  • 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.

  • STIHL ELASTOSTART Zoom
    STIHL ELASTOSTART

    STIHL ElastoStart reduces the resistance caused by the compression of the engine when pulling the starter cord, through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle.

  • COMBI LEVER Zoom
