  • STIHL 2-MIX-Motor
    The STIHL two-stroke engine with 2-MIX technology ensures high performance, plenty of pulling power and saves up to 20% fuel compared to STIHL two-stroke engines of the same performance without 2-MIX technology.

    Side-mounted chain tensioning makes it easy to tension the chain safely.

  • Tool free fuel caps
    Special caps to open and close the tank cap quickly, easily and without tools.
  • Manual fuel pump (Purger Bulb)
    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required from a cold start.
