  • STIHL Electric Motor - Lightweight and compact, STIHL electric motors require minimal maintenance and feature low noise levels and reduced vibration.
  • Lightweight Portability - Great for maneuverability and extended use.
  • STIHL Quickstop Plus - STIHL offers an additional, manually-activated chain brake on select models. This system is designed to engage when the operator’s right hand completely releases the rear handle, stopping the chain within one second.
  • STIHL Quickstop - STIHL chainsaws are equipped with a chain stopping system designed to reduce the risk of injury in certain kickback situations. It is called a STIHL Quickstop chain brake. The STIHL Quickstop chain brake is designed to stop the rotation of the chain if activated by the operator’s hand or by inertia if the saw kicks back with sufficient force. In some working positions, the STIHL Quickstop chain brake can be activated by inertia, stopping the chain within fractions of a second.
  • Ematic Lubrication System - The Ematic guide bar, when used with STIHL OILOMATIC saw chain, will provide proper lubrication and less oil consumption than conventional methods. The system works because two ramps, strategically placed in the guide bar rail, help contain the flow of oil and direct all lubrication to the sliding faces of the bar and chain links as well as the rivets and driver holes, which in turn can reduce bar oil consumption up to 50 89%.
