  • Rated voltage (V): 36

The chain stops in seconds whenever the user lets go of the rear handle and whenever there is sufficiently strong kickback or when the front hand guard is activated. This unique safety feature ensures even more user protection in all working positions.

  • Two-handled operation: The ergonomically shaped handle and rear control handle with comfortable soft-grip component ensure safe working in all operating positions.

  • STIHL Electric Motor (EC): The STIHL electric motor (EC) is extremely energy efficient, lightweight and compact. It runs quietly, generates very low vibrations and does not require servicing.
  • Ematic chain lubrication system: The STIHL Ematic chain lubrication system provides maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption that conventional methods of chain lubrication. The oil consumption can therefore be reduced by up to 50%.
  • Toolless filler cap: The tank can be filled quickly and easily using the toolless filler cap.
