FEATURE GLOSSARY

 

STIHL Anti-Vibration System
Precisely calculated buffer zones minimise the transfer of engine and saw chain vibrations to the front and rear handles. The chainsaw therefore runs noticeably smoother. This allows the user to save their strength and work longer.

HD2 Filter
This air filter keeps even the finest dust away from the engine, ensuring a particularly long service life. Thanks to its special material, the filter can easily be cleaned by washing, for example with STIHL Varioclean and warm water.

 

 

 

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. Click on  for more information.

 

 

Manual Fuel Pump
When the primer bulb is pressed the regulating chamber of the carburetor fills with fuel. That way, enough fuel is available immediately at the start to form an air-fuel mixture that will ignite, so fewer pulls on the starter rope are needed.

 

 

 

QuickStop Super (Q)
STIHL is the only chain saw manufacturer to offer the QuickStop Super additional braking system. This allows the chain brake to be activated from the rear handle. The chain comes to a stop in seconds if a sufficiently strong kickback occurs or if the front hand guard is operated, and also when the operator lets go of the rear handle.

 

 

STIHL ElastoStart
STIHL ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. The compression shock is taken away from the users joints and muscles through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle. Click on  for more information.

 

 

 

STIHL 2-MIX Engine
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.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

STIHL Quick Chain Tensioning (B)
Once the sprocket cover has been loosened, the saw chain can be tensioned via a knob - no tools required. Click on  for more information.

 

 

 

STIHL Ematic-System
The Ematic chain lubrication system ensures pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails. When used with STIHL OILOMATIC saw chain, it will provide maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication. The Ematic system can reduce bar oil consumption up to 50%.

 

 

 

ErgoStart/EasyStart (E)
Easy starting with less effort due to an additional spring between the crankshaft and the rope rotor. A smooth pull on the starter rope tensions the spring against the compression resistance of the engine. The jerks are not transmitted to the rope. The spring automatically transmits the stored energy to the crankshaft, causing it to turn and ensuring reliable starting of the engine. Click on  for more information.

 

 

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.

 

 

 

Duro Chain
Our Duro saw chains have been specially developed for tough jobs. The carbide alloy plating ensures they stay sharp up to ten times longer than conventional saw chains. They are particulary suitable for cutting dirty wood. 

 

 

 

STIHL ECOSPEED
STIHL ECOSPEED enables the user to control the engine speed individually on the operating handle. Click on  for more information.
