Description

Weight-optimised high-power saw with handle and heated carburettor. With economical 2-MIX engine. The Stihl M-Tronic guarantees optimum engine performance at all times, while its single starting position and stop button function mean easy starting. Controlled-delivery high-performance oil pump for high pumping capacity, HD2 filter with radial seal, tool-free fuel caps for simple, safe refuelling.

Stihl M-Tronic (M)

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.

Heated handles (W)

These provide additional comfort in cold weather and can be engaged with a switch on the left handle as required.

Carburettor heating (V)

By changing the chain saw from summer to winter operation, the intake air is pre-heated over the engine fins. This ensures that the carburettor does not ice up and you can continue working in freezing temperatures.

Stihl 2-MIX-Engine

1-in-4 channel technology. The economical Stihl 2-MIX engine with 1-in-4channel technology features a high torque over a wide speed range. The chainsaw provides fuel savings of up to 20% compared to Stihl two-stroke engines in the same performance class without 2-MIX technology. Exhaust emissions are reduced by up to 50%.

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.

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 ElastoStart

Stihl ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. The compression shock is taken away from the user’s joints and muscles through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle.

Side chain tensioner

The tensioning screw can be found on the side of the chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.

Tool free filler caps

Special catches on the fuel and oil tanks for easy opening and locking without the need for tools.

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 therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
