STIHL 4-MIX engine
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.
Manual fuel pump (purger)
A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
The decompression system allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.
Side Chain tensioning
The side chain tension is used to adjust the chain tension safely and easily.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
Tool-free oil tank cap
Tool-free filler cap for opening and closing of the oil tank without tools.
Multi-function control handle
This houses all the engine controls. Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator’s hand never leaves the handle.
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.
