    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.

  • Anti-vibration system Zoom
    Anti-vibration system

    STIHL has developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles. The buffer and spring elements of the STIHL anti-vibration system reduce the transfer of engine vibrations to the grip area and thus to your body. The effect: Your device is more stable in your hand and you can work with less fatigue.

  • Multi-function control handle Zoom
