Standard features

  • Anti-vibration systemZoom
    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.

  • STIHL Easy2Start™Zoom
    STIHL Easy2Start™

    A genuine advance in easy starting. STIHL Easy2Start™ cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. All it takes is 2 fingers and a gentle pull action.
