What else will I need to buy with my chainsaw?
- 2-Stroke Oil.
We advise STIHL MotoMix® which is Stihl’s patented premixed fuel, specially blended for ultimate performance. Like a sports drink for your engine, this 50:1 mixture is a combination of premium non-ethanol, high-octane motor fuel and our highest-quality STIHL HP Ultra oil. Clean and convenient, MotoMix® eliminates the hassle of mixing your own 2-stroke engine fuel while providing superior performance and lubrication. STIHL MotoMix® contains no ethanol, allowing it to maintain stability for up to two years after the seal is broken – so it stays fresh in your equipment during long storage periods. MotoMix® is also made of non-aromatic fuel and fully synthetic, highly biodegradable engine oil.
- Chain Oil
Chain lubricant promotes smooth operation by keeping the chain clean and free-running on the guide bar.
- Optional Extras
Chainsaw files, replacement bars and chains, chainsaw safety equipment (PPE) and log saw horses. All available in store at Masseys.
STIHL 4-MIX engine
You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.
Side Chain tensioning
The side chain tension is used to adjust the chain tension safely and easily.
With the practical telescope shaft that can be fixed from 2.70m to 3.90m, you can easily reach branches up to a height of 5m.
Tool-free oil tank cap
Tool-free filler cap for opening and closing of the oil tank without tools.
Multi-function control handle
This houses all the engine controls. Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator’s hand never leaves the handle.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
The decompression system allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.
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.
For use with loop handle machines
