  • 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.
  • STIHL 2-MIX-Engine
    The STIHL 2-mix engine specially designed for the new generation of hedge trimmer combines low consumption and emissions ​​with low weight and excellent acceleration. There are also always sufficient power reserves for cutting thicker shrubs.
  • Double-sided blades
    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 protected from 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 pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
  • Long-life air filter system
    Ensures longer cleaning intervals and better protection of the engine.
  • Single-sided cutting blade
    The double-sided cutting blade is ground on one side. The special blade geometry ensures high cutting performance. (similar to illustration)
  • Tool free filler cap
    Patented special filler caps for fuel and oil. These filler caps can be opened and closed again quickly and easily, without tools.
  • Single lever operation
    The choke, start gas, operating position and stop function are integrated onto one operating element. Stop button with a single lever operation After pressing the stop button, the shaft jumps back to position I. The hedge trimmer is ready to start again immediately, thus preventing an incorrect operation. (similar to illustration)
