Heated handles, carburettor & an exceptional power to weight ratio.
A great saw to work with even in the toughest frozen conditions.
Innovative engine technology from STIHL
Benefiting from high torque over a wide rpm range, you can expect to save up to 20 percent on fuel compared to normal STIHL two-stroke engines, as well as up to 50 percent on exhaust emissions, all thanks to the 2-MIX engine system in use.
In addition, the MS 462 C-M VW utilises the M-Tronic engine management technology, where ignition timing and fuel metering is automatically adjusted based on external conditions, giving excellent acceleration, consistent maximum speed and requiring only one start position.
Durable & built-to-last
Like its brother the MS 462 C-M, the VW version also boasts the same great power to weight ratio, making it easy to work with yet durable and robust. A side chain tensioner makes adjustments easy to carry out, while not requiring you to touch the sharp saw chain, and a new oil pump system provides a greater quantity of oil, ideal for work in dusty environments or using longer guide bars.
In a similar fashion, a new HD2 air filter ensures better service life and wear, with a radial filter preventing dust particles from contaminating the machine.
Comfortable operation, whatever the conditions
Thanks to the heated carburettor, easy starting is assured, while the heated handles mean you can work in comfort even when the temperature outside is freezing. For safer plunge cuts, markings are present on the fan housing, and the tooth length of the bumper spikes have been adjusted so that the saw bites into the wood with even more intensity.
Anti-vibration technology allows you to work for longer in safety and comfort, a decompression valve reduces the shock while starting (and means less force is required on the starter rope), and tool-free filler caps make topping up your machine a breeze.
