STIHL M-Tronic (M)
For a cold start, the STIHL M-Tronic only needs one start position on the combi-lever. After starting, you can immediately power up to full speed. The amount of fuel required is precisely calculated by the system and supplied as needed. Otherwise, start in position I as usual.
Due to compression pressure, jerky stresses occur when starting internal combustion engines. The damping element in the ElastoStart special starter grip alternately absorbs and releases force according to the compression pattern. The result is smooth, even starting.
STIHL 2-MIX engine
The two-stroke engine with STIHL 2-MIX technology saves up to 20 % of fuel and reduces emissions by up to 70 % compared to STIHL 2-stroke engines of the same performance class without 2-MIX technology.
Electrically heated handles (W)
The electrically heated handles (W) keep your hands warm and dry for a better grip, making your work safer in winter. No-maintenance, wear-free heating strips in the front and rear handles can be engaged with a switch as required to make the handle warmer and dryer.
HD2 filter with radial seal
The new HD2 air filter, made from PET material and featuring a radial seal, prevents the intake of fine dust particles. The hermetic seal increases the service life of the engine and reduces wear.
Electric carburettor heating (V)
The electrically heated carburettor with temperature-dependent on-and-off control prevents the carburettor from icing up in wintry conditions.
Side-mounted chain tensioning
Side-mounted chain tensioning makes it easy to tension the chain safely.
STIHL Ematic with new oil pump system
The new oil pump system allows a higher volume of oil to be delivered. This is especially useful in dusty conditions or when using a long guide bar.
This 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.
The decompression valve is part of the easy starting system. The valve should be pressed before starting to reduce the compression pressure when starting, as well as reducing the effort needed to pull the starter rope. The decompression valve is semi-automatic; it must be pressed manually before starting, but then closes automatically.
STIHL anti-vibration system
Precisely calculated buffer zones minimise the transfer of engine and saw chain vibrations to the front and rear handles. The chainsaw therefore runs noticeably smoother. This allows the user to save their strength and work longer.
Optimised sprocket cover
The flatter, narrower sprocket cover with integrated slide rails reduces effort when pruning and ensures outstanding chip removal.
Low power to weight ratio
The STIHL MS 462 C-M is the lightest professional chainsaw in its cubic capacity class. Special components, such as the cylinder with its angled cooling ribs, the compact sprocket cover, the light crankcase, the weight-optimised flywheel and the Rollomatic ES Light rail ensure that the machine is noticeably lighter.
Stop button function
After the machine is turned off, the control lever immediately moves back into the operating position. This allows a warm machine to be restarted again immediately.
When changing the cutting attachment, you will not risk losing the nuts on the sprocket. The MS 261 is the first STIHL chainsaw to be equipped with the captive nuts. A great advantage for all users.
Tool free fuel caps
Special caps to open and close the tank cap quickly, easily and without tools.
