Features

MS 462 C-M

Standard features

  • STIHL M-Tronic (M) Zoom
    STIHL M-Tronic (M)

    The 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. There is only one start position on the combi-lever, so you can easily start the tool with fewer pulls on the cord and without switching.

  • STIHL 2-MIX-Motor Reduced-emission technology Zoom
    STIHL 2-MIX-Motor Reduced-emission technology

    The two-stroke engine with STIHL 2-MIX technology saves up to 20 % of fuel and reduces emissions by up to 70 % compared to STIHL 2-stroke engines of the same performance class without 2-MIX technology.

  • Decompression valve Zoom
    Decompression valve

    The decompression valve is part of the easy start-system. The valve should be pressed before starting in order to reduce the compression pressure when starting, as well as the effort needed to pull the starter rope. The decompression valve is semi-automatic, meaning that it must be pressed manually before starting, but then closes automatically.

  • Side-mounted chain tensioning Zoom
    Side-mounted 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 retensioned effortlessly, avoiding any contact with the sharp chain.

  • Tool free fuel caps Zoom
    Tool free fuel caps

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

  • Pre-separation air filtration system Zoom
    Pre-separation air filtration system

    The innovative long-life air filter system greatly extends the service life of the filter. Air routing removes larger particles of dirt, meaning the actual filter has less to do. So the saw can be used for longer without having to clean the filter.

  • STIHL anti-vibration system Zoom
    STIHL anti-vibration system

    Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to longer-term effects of blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL have therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system where by the oscillations from the machines engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

  • Compensator Zoom
    Compensator

    This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.
