Features

Features

  • STIHL EASY2START™: The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products easier. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start.
  • SHOULDER STRAP / CARRYING SYSTEM: Using a shoulder strap or carrying system helps distribute the weight of the equipment for increased operator comfort and improved maneuverability.
  • SIMPLIFIED STARTING PROCEDURE: To get started, simply pump the fuel primer, set the choke and pull the starter cord. The built-in stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a simple press of the button. When the engine is off, the throttle lock automatically returns to the “start” setting. Your power tool will be ready to be started when you’re ready to get back to work.
  • SUPPORT STRAP: Support strap provides additional support while working.
  • FULLY LINED DRIVE SHAFT: Provides smooth operation and less vibration.
  • HIGH TECH POLYMER HOUSING: Housings are lightweight, withstand greater impact and are corrosion-resistant.
  • START/RUN/STOP CONTROLS ON HANDLE
  • PROTECTED CHOKE LEVER/KNOB: Helps prevent damage.
  • THROTTLE TRIGGER INTERLOCK: Must be depressed before the trigger can be activated.
  • AIR FILTER COVER: Easily removed for fast and easy filter cleaning or replacement.
  • PROTECTED OR ENCLOSED CONTROL CABLES: Eliminate dangling and loose wires.
  • HEAVY-DUTY STEEL-ON-STEEL CLUTCH: Centrifugal clutch is designed to reduce slippage.
  • PROTECTED SPARK PLUG: Protected yet easy to change.
  • PROTECTED SPARK ARRESTOR MUFFLER: Has large baffles which reduce noise level and contains a screen designed to reduce the emission of sparks.
  • UPRIGHT TRANSLUCENT FUEL TANK: Allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work. Upright position makes it easier to refill.
  • BIKE HANDLE: When used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, enabling a smooth horizontal mowing action to cover large areas quickly and efficiently. With soft grips for increased comfort, the bike handle provides greater control and helps reduce operator fatigue.
  • MULTI-FUNCTION CONTROL HANDLE: Having easy access to all of the controls on one comfortable handle makes it easy to complete tasks so the operator’s hand never has to leave the handle.
  • PURGE PUMP PRIMER: By pressing the bulb, this small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburetor, reducing the number of starting pulls needed after an extended break between uses.
  • BUILT IN THE USA: When you own a STIHL, you hold in your hands the product of hard work, pride and dedication.
  • REDUCED-EMISSION ENGINE TECHNOLOGY - CARING FOR NATURE: The STIHL Inc. “Caring for Nature” seal identifies its powered products that are more environmentally conscious, producing zero or low exhaust emissions. STIHL Inc. defines “low exhaust emissions” as being cleaner than EPA and/or CARB exhaust emission standards.
  • SMOOTH CLEAN DESIGN: No rough edges to snag on clothing or brush.
  • HEAVY-DUTY CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH: Designed to reduce slippage.
  • ADJUSTABLE FRONT HANDLE: Adjusts for comfort.
  • PROTECTED THROTTLE TRIGGER: Helps prevent damage.
  • CLIP FOR STRAP OR HARNESS.
  • LONG-LIFE CYLINDERS: Provide maximum wear life, better cooling and lubrication, more power output.
  • ELECTRONIC IGNITION: Provides easier starting and smoother running.
  • SUPERIOR BALANCE AND DESIGN: Help reduce operator fatigue and make handling easy.
  • FAMILY ENGINE CONCEPT: Includes many interchangeable components across model lines, enabling fast field fixes.

Other Features

  • EASY2START™ SYSTEM: This starting system reduces the strength and effort needed to start the engine.
  • ELASTOSTART™ HANDLE: Has a built-in shock absorber for smoother starting.
  • INTELLICARB™ COMPENSATING CARBURETOR: measures air on clean side of air filter and adjusts metering diaphragm in carburetor. Keeps RPM level even when filter begins to clog.
  • INTERCHANGEABLE GEARBOXES: Fit many models, allowing for one machine to do a variety of tasks.
  • AUTOCUT® TRIMMING HEAD: A proven and dependable TapAction™ cutting head.
