Features

FR 460 TC-EM

Standard features

  • STIHL 2-MIX engine with stratified charge system Zoom
    STIHL 2-MIX engine with stratified charge system

    The STIHL two stroke engine with 2-MIX technology ensures a high power output and excellent torque levels while reducing fuel consumptioon by up to 20%*. It combines a four-channel cylinder with a stratified charge system. Exhaust emissions are also lowered by up to 70%*. The engine is compliant with EU II European emissions standard. (*Compared with STIHL 2-stroke engines of the same power output without 2-MIX technology. Percentages may vary depending on model.)

  • Loop handle (R) Zoom
    Loop handle (R)

    The loop handled grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs.

  • STIHL M-Tronic Zoom
    STIHL M-Tronic

    This fully electronic engine management system adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating modes. It also takes external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality into account. It ensures consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. STIHL M-Tronic makes manual carburettor adjustments unnecessary. Thanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition, now there is only one start position on the combi-lever. The engine starts after fewer pulls and with no change of position, and can immediately accelerate up to speed - even after a cold start. STIHL M-Tronic also remembers the settings from the last time the tool was used. So when external conditions are the same, optimal engine performance is available every time you start up again.

  • STIHL ErgoStart (E) Zoom
    STIHL ErgoStart (E)

    Easy starting is achieved by an additional spring between the crankshaft and the starter cord reel. One smooth, steady pull is all it takes for reliable starting of power tools fitted with STIHL ErgoStart. Standard with all CE models.

  • Manual fuel pump (Purger) Zoom
    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 pulls required following extended breaks in operations.

  • Detachable shaft Zoom
    Detachable shaft

    The shaft can be detached without the use of tools for easy storage and transport.

  • Anti-vibration system Zoom
    Anti-vibration system

    Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

  • Multi-function control handle Zoom
    Multi-function control handle

    Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.

  • Shoulder strap / carrying system Zoom
    Shoulder strap / carrying system

    Using a STIHL shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.

  • Choke lever (M-Tronic) Zoom
    Choke lever (M-Tronic)

    This fully electronic engine management system adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating modes. It also takes external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality into account. It ensures consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. M-Tronic makes manual carburettor adjustments unnecessary. Thanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition, now there is only one start position on the combi-lever. The engine starts after fewer pulls and with no change of position, and can immediately accelerate up to speed - even after a cold start. M-Tronic also remembers the settings from the last time the tool was used. So when external conditions are the same, optimal engine performance is available every time you start up again.

  • Long life air filter Zoom
    Long life air filter

    The easily accessible filter paper ensures long service intervals.

  • Stop button Zoom
    Stop button

    You do not need to control the stop button when restarting. The engine can be started at any time. (similar to illustration)

  • Compensator Zoom
    Compensator

    A controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.

  • Goggles Zoom
    Goggles

    It is important to protect your eyes from debris and harmful UV radiation. A pair of safety glasses is supplied with this machine. Please note, additional face protection must be worn when working with brushcutters.

  • Tool bag Zoom
    Tool bag

    A practical way of transporting tools. Two compartments. Easily attached to the universal or forestry harness.
