STIHL Anti-vibration system

Precisely calculated spring elements dampen down vibrations from the engine to a minimum, reducing fatigue. Image shows HS 81.

Double-sided blade

Dual ground blade system provides a clean cut. Excellent for cutting stronger, thicker branches.

Electronic ignition module

This ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running. The ignition system is fully encapsulated and thus proof against damp and dirt.

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 strokes required from a cold start.

STIHL Easy2Start (E)

STIHL Easy2Start makes it possible to start the machine with very little effort. This supports the starting process with an additional spring accumulator between the crankshaft and starting device which reduces the force needed to start the machine. Even if you only pull the starting cord slowly the engine starts easily.
