A 3.5kW petrol chainsaw with heated carburettor and handles.
This is a robust and powerful saw, ideal for long sawing sessions in freezing conditions. It comes with a choice of 16 inch (40 cm) or 18 inch (45 cm) bar lengths.
Perfect for working in freezing conditions
You can engage this machine's heated handles to provide additional comfort when working in cold weather by activating a switch on the left handle. This allows you to operate for longer and, when combined with the heated carburettor, means the temperature won't stop you from working. By changing the saw from summer to winter operation, the intake air is pre-heated over the engine fins to ensure the carburettor does not ice up and that you can continue working in freezing temperatures.
Excellent efficiency & intelligent operation
The M-Tronic engine management system that is exclusive to STIHL can provide excellent, consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. It provides cold/warm start recognition, meaning only one start position on the combi-lever, and can immediately accelerate up to speed and get going with fewer pulls on the starter cord. The MS 362 C-M VW also uses the Ematic chain lubrication system to give pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails, reducing bar oil consumption by up to 50 percent and providing longer wear.
Comfortable & simple to use
Anti-vibration technology works to reduce vibrations at the unit's handles by dampening the engine oscillations, and STIHL's ElastoStart system reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine while starting. The chain tensioner is located on the side of the machine so you can avoid contact with the saw chain, and tool-free filler caps make topping up the oil and fuel simple. The HD2 filter not only catches even very fine dust, but is very easy to clean.
