STIHL 4-MIX engine
You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.
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.
The decompression system allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.
Side Chain tensioning
The side chain tension is used to adjust the chain tension safely and easily.
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.
Tool-free oil tank cap
Tool-free filler cap for opening and closing of the oil tank without tools.
Multi-function control handle
This houses all the engine controls. Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.
With the practical telescope shaft that can be fixed from 2.70m to 3.90m, you can easily reach branches up to a height of 5m.
For use with loop handle machines.
STIHL Smart Connector
STIHL connected is a smart fleet management system that enables professional users to digitally manage machine fleets and work assignments.
This is managed by the STIHL Smart Connector - a sensor with a diameter of just under 5cm, which is mounted on the tool. It can be mounted on petrol, electric or battery-powered tools where it records and saves the operating hours while the motor is running and transmits this information via Bluetooth® 4.2 to the STIHL connected App (the smart connector can be mounted on non-STIHL tools too). The Smart Connector offers entirely new functions and services, as a basis for device management both in your home garden using the STIHL connected App, and for managing your machine fleet using the STIHL connected Portal.
Here’s a few reasons why STIHL connected can help manage your fleet of tools:
The Digital Fleet Management keeps a record of all tools and their service record
You get prompts when a tool needs servicing, so you never forget to change the plug, filter or just carry out maintenance
You can see how many hours a tool has done, so you can plan which tools to use, replace or buy more of
At the end of the day, you can open the app and see which tools are next to you - so you can tell if something is missing
Book a service with your nearest STIHL Approved Dealer and give them access to see what work will be needed in advance.
STIHL Connected is an intuitive way to manage your machine fleet and workload intelligently and efficiently. Visit: STIHL connected FAQs to find out more.
