Features

MS 462 C-M R

Standard equipment

  • STIHL M-Tronic (M) Zoom
    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.

  • STIHL 2-MIX engine Zoom
    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.

  •  HD2 filter with radial seal Zoom
    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.

  • Side-mounted chain tensioning Zoom
    Side-mounted chain tensioning

    Side-mounted chain tensioning makes it easy to tension the chain safely.

  • STIHL Ematic with new oil pump system Zoom
    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.

  • Large starter grip Zoom
    Large starter grip

    The large starter grip ensures safe, easy starting.

  • Compensator Zoom
    Compensator

    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.

  • Decompression valve Zoom
    Decompression valve

    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 Zoom
    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 Zoom
    Optimised sprocket cover

    The flatter, narrower sprocket cover with integrated slide rails reduces effort when pruning and ensures outstanding chip removal.

  • Stop button function Zoom
    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.

  • Captive nuts Zoom
    Captive nuts

    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 Zoom
    Tool free fuel caps

    Special caps to open and close the tank cap quickly, easily and without tools.

  • Tubular loop handle with combination socket tool Zoom
    Tubular loop handle with combination socket tool

    Ensures good handling and outstanding ergonomics when cutting. The combination socket tool is always close at hand, e.g. when changing the chain.

  • Protective plate on muffler Zoom
    Protective plate on muffler

    Reduced dirt build-up when cutting specific materials, such as bitumen. Prevents muffler adhesions.

  • Cut depth limiter Zoom
    Cut depth limiter

    Allows for rapid, depth-controlled cutting.

  • Cutting depth limiter quick-release tensioner Zoom
    Cutting depth limiter quick-release tensioner

    Facilitates use in different positions. Improves the grip and tension of the cutting depth limiter.
