Features

Features

  • BUILT IN THE USA: When you own a STIHL, you hold in your hands the product of hard work, pride and dedication.
  • 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 fast and easy. 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: The STIHL shoulder strap allows for greater maneuverability and helps reduce operator fatigue, allowing the user to work comfortably.
  • MULTI-FUNCTION CONTROL HANDLE: Having easy access to all of the controls on one comfortable handle helps makes it easier to complete tasks so the operator’s hand never has to leave the handle.
  • PURGE PUMP PRIMER: The purge pump primer feature enables the user to prime the carburetor with fuel, enabling easier starting. The purge pump primer is designed in a way that the operator cannot flood the machine by priming the carburetor too many times. Flooding the engine is still possible if the choke is not removed after the engine fires.
  • ADJUSTABLE NOZZLE: Great for stairs and operators of different heights.
  • PROTECTED SPARK PLUG: Protected yet easy to change.
  • THROTTLE TRIGGER LOCKSTOP SWITCH: For ease of operation.
  • PURGE PUMP PRIMER: Lets you prime the carburetor without flooding it.
  • AIR FILTER COVER: Easy to remove without tools for fast and easy filter cleaning or replacement.
  • PROTECTED SPARK ARRESTOR MUFFLER: Has large baffles which reduce sound level and contains a screen designed to reduce the emission of sparks.
  • HIGH-TECH POLYMER HOUSINGS: Lightweight, withstand greater impact and are corrosion-resistant.
  • HELPER HANDLE: For added air direction control and vacuum use.
  • UPRIGHT TRANSLUCENT FUEL TANK: Allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work. Upright for easy filling.
  • LONG-LIFE CYLINDERS: Give maximum wear life, better cooling and lubrication, and more power output per cubic centimeter of engine displacement.
  • SUPERIOR BALANCE AND DESIGN: Help reduce fatigue and make handling easy.
  • SMOOTH, CLEAN DESIGN: No rough edges to snag on clothing or brush.
  • 2-RING PISTONS: Improve engine efficiency and hold compression longer than 1-ring pistons. Also they transfer heat from the piston to cylinder better, helping engine stay cooler and last longer.
  • ELECTRONIC IGNITION: Provides easier starting, smoother running and no periodic maintenance.

Other Features

  • CONVERSION KITS: Convert blowers into vacuums
  • INTELLICARB™ COMPENSATING CARBURETOR: Measures air on clean side of air filter and adjusts metering diaphragm in carburetor. Keeps RPM level even when filter begins to clog.
  • ANTI-VIBRATION SYSTEM: Helps reduce operator fatigue.
  • EASY2START™ SYSTEM: Reduces the strength and effort needed to start the engine. Available on select models.
  • ELASTOSTART™ HANDLE: Has a built-in shock absorber for smoother starting.
  • *STIHL handheld blowers have many common features. However, all models may not have all the features shown here. Consult your Dealer for details.
