Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus additional chain braking feature, STIHL reduced kickback bars and STIHL low-kickback saw chains.STIHL recommends the use of green reduced kickback bars and green low kickback chains on all STIHL chainsaws.* The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length based on which powerhead it is installed on.
