STIHL anti-vibration system, multi-function handle, loop handle, 2-MIX engine, STIHL M-Tronic, stop button, tool bag, detachable shaft. The shaft can be detached without the use of tools for easy storage and transport. The shaft is not compatible with the STIHL KombiSystem.

STIHL ElektroStart

The STIHL Electro-Start system allows you start the tool at the push of a button. There is no need to remove the machine from your back to start it up, saving time and energy. The pull start is still available for cold starting.

STIHL 2-MIX engine with stratified charge system

The STIHL two stroke engine with 2-MIX technology ensures a high power output and excellent torque levels while reducing fuel consumptioon by up to 20%*. It combines a four-channel cylinder with a stratified charge system. Exhaust emissions are also lowered by up to 70%*. The engine is compliant with EU II European emissions standard. (*Compared with STIHL 2-stroke engines of the same power output without 2-MIX technology. Percentages may vary depending on model.)

STIHL ErgoStart (FT)

Easy starting is achieved by an additional spring between the crankshaft and the starter cord reel. One smooth, steady pull is all it takes for reliable starting of power tools fitted with STIHL ErgoStart. Standard with all CE models.

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 developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

Shoulder strap / carrying system

Using a STIHL shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.

Loop handle (R)

The loop handled grass trimmers and brushcutters are ideal for working in areas where space is limited, e.g. thinning between bushes and shrubs.

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.

Detachable shaft

The shaft can be detached without the use of tools for easy storage and transport.

Multi-function control handle

Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle


A controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.
