You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.
Side-mounted chain tensioning
Side-mounted chain tensioning makes it easy to tension the chain safely.
Multi-function control handle
All controls for motor control are integrated in the multi-function handle. The operation of the device is easy and safe – the hand remains on the handle.
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 allowing for more comfortable and safer operation.
With the practical telescope shaft, that can be fixed from 2.70m to 3.90m, you can easily reach branches up to a height of 5m without having to leave the ground.
Tool free fuel caps
Special caps to open and close the tank cap quickly, easily and without tools.
The decompression system allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.
Manual fuel pump (Purger Bulb)
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.
It is important to protect your eyes from flying particles and harmful UV radiation. Therefore a pair of safety goggles/glasses are supplied with the the machine. Note: Additional face protection must be worn when working with brushcutters!
