  • STIHL 2-MIX engine with stratified charge system
    2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.
  • 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 following extended breaks in operations.
  • Multi-function control handle
    Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.
  • Safety glasses
    The standard protection glasses for your safety. The glasses are well ventilated and have a wide side protection. (similar to illustration)


  • 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.
