Key product features:

Reduced-Emission Engine Technology - Caring for Nature

The STIHL Inc. “Caring for Nature” seal identifies its powered products that are more environmentally conscious, producing zero or low exhaust emissions. STIHL Inc. defines “low exhaust emissions” as being cleaner than EPA and/or CARB exhaust emission standards.

Built in the USA

Indicates products that are built in the United States from domestic and foreign parts and components.

Anti-Vibration System

STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.

Side-Access Chain Tensioner

The side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw.

Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers

Simply lift the lever and twist the caps to remove or tighten. There‘s no need to use a tool to tighten or loosen.

Translucent Fuel Tank

Allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work.
