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.
Multi-function control handle
Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator’s hand never leaves the handle.
When used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle enables a smooth mowing action. The bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, making it ideal for working on large areas and thus reducing fatigue.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
ADVANCE Universal Harness
Soft padding makes work more comfortable during longer jobs.
Bike handle adjustment
The central clamp enables the ergonomic bike handle to be easily adjusted without tools to suit the height of the user. The handle can be rotated by 90°, making it more compact for transport and storage.
You do not need to control the stop button when restarting. The engine can be started at any time.
The decompression valve allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.
Manual fuel pump (Purger)
A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.
Air filter with long service life
The easily accessible paper filter with a long service life means it can go for long intervals without changing. (similar to illustration)
