For professional applications requiring high performance. A simplified start-up sequence for convenient starting, stop button, larger fuel tank for extended use, paper air filter, loop handle, 4-MIX® engine.
Loop handle (R) with barrier bar: The loop handle is well suited for most jobs around the garden and grounds. Especially practical for trimming and thinning work in areas that are hard to get at.
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.
Anti-vibration system: 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 by rubber buffers. This significantly reduces vibrations at the handles allowing for more comfortable and safer operation.
Automatic decompression: The decompression system automatically opens the intake valve during engine start-up. This absorbs pressure peaks and considerably reduces the effort needed to pull the starting rope.
Quick-release coupling with tommy screw: The innovative quick-release coupling enables all KombiSystems and KombiTools to be taken apart – no tools required.
Stop button: You do not need to control the stop button when restarting. The engine can be started at any time.
