Great for a range of light cutting jobs.

A perfect tool for private users or farmers felling small trees, cutting firewood and general landscape maintenance. With a choice between a 14 inch / 35 cm and a 16 inch / 40 cm bar length.

Low fuel consumption & an efficient engine

This saw uses STIHL's 2-MIX engine technology which is highly efficient, offering up to 70 percent lower emissions and 20 percent less fuel consumption compared to STIHL 2-stroke machinery of the same power without the 2-MIX system. This model also benefits from a compensator in the carburettor that prevents the fuel/air mixture from getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. This keeps the engine power constant and means the filter only needs to be cleaned once an appreciable drop in power occurs.

Comfortable control

Because this machine has an anti-vibration system, you can rest assured that the intense vibrations that can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels are significantly reduced. The engine's oscillations are dampened, resulting in far less vibrations at the handles. On top of this, all of the saw's important operating controls are combined on one lever, making it particularly comfortable to use.

Easy to use

Tool-free fuel and oil caps use special catches to allow them to be easily opened and locked without the need for tools, and the side chain tensioner means you don't have to touch the sharp saw chain to adjust the machine. This model also has the Ematic chain lubrication system to ensure pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails, resulting in maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than regular methods of chain lubrication.
