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.
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.
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 without having to leave the ground.
Shoulder strap / carrying system:
Using a STIHL shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.
The decompression system allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.
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.
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 strokes required following extended breaks in operations.
