QuickStop Super Chain Brake (Q)
The additional braking system for extra safety. Users can trigger the chain brake directly at the rear handle. The chain stops in seconds whenever the user lets go of the rear handle and whenever there is sufficiently strong kickback or when the front handguard is activated. This unique safety feature ensures even more user protection in all working positions.
STIHL Quick Chain Tensioning (B)
The STIHL chain quick tensioning system (B) makes it very easy to tension the chain. Just release the sprocket cover and turn the knob to set the optimum tension. No tools needed.

The ergonomically shaped handle and rear control handle with a comfortable soft-grip component ensure safe working in all operating positions.
The black soft component on the rear handle provides a secure and firm grip in all working positions.
