Features

  • STIHL Easy2Start™ 

The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products easier. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products. 

  • Shoulder Strap / Carrying System 

Using a shoulder strap or carrying system helps distribute the weight of the equipment for increased operator comfort and improved maneuverability.

  • Simplified Starting Procedure 

To get started, simply pump the fuel primer, set the choke and pull the starter cord. The built-in stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a simple press of the button. When the engine is off, the throttle lock automatically returns to the “start” setting. Your power tool will be ready to be started when you’re ready to get back to work.

  • Support strap (4130 007 1020)

Support strap provides additional support while working.

  • Fully Lined Drive Shaft 

Provides smooth operation and less vibration.

With soft grips for increased comfort, the bike handle provides greater control and helps reduce operator fatigue. 

  • Multi-Function Control Handle 

Having easy access to all of the controls on one comfortable handle makes it easy to complete tasks so the operator’s hand never has to leave the handle.
