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.
QuickStop Chain Brake
The chain brake on your STIHL chainsaw can be triggered automatically or manually. In both cases, the brake band encloses the clutch drum and prevents the chain starting to move even when the throttle trigger is squeezed. The chain brake is applied manually by pressing the front hand guard on your STIHL chainsaw forwards. It is activated automatically whenever a sufficiently strong kickback is encountered.
Due to compression pressure, jerky stresses occur when starting internal combustion engines. The damping element in the ElastoStart special starter grip alternately absorbs and releases force according to the compression pattern. The result is smooth, even starting.
Side-mounted chain tensioning
Side-mounted chain tensioning makes it easy to tension the chain safely.
