  • 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.
  • HD2-Filter
    The HD2 filter, made from polyethylene filter material, has pores that are up to 70% finer than those of fleece and polyamide filters and therefore eliminates even the finest dust. In addition, it repels oil and water and is therefore very easy to clean. The PET filter cartridge can be removed and inserted without tools.
  • STIHL ElastoStart
    STIHL ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. The compression shock is taken away from the user's joints and muscles through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle.
  • Throttle lock with built-in stop switch
    The running machine switches off immediately after a brief press of a button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically, meaning it is always ready to start.
  • One handle control with soft grip area
    For a secure and comfortable grip.
  • 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.
  • Integrated shoulder strap for vacuum bag
    The integrated shoulder strap makes vacuuming for long periods of time less tiring. Allowing for much more movement whilst helping to support the weight of the collection bag.
  • Safety glasses
    The standard protection glasses for your safety. The glasses are well ventilated and have a wide side protection. (similar to illustration)
