STIHL M-TRONIC TECHNOLOGY
EASY TO STARTThanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition there is now only one start position on the combi-lever (▲). M-Tronic calculates electronically the exact fuel dosage. The engine starts after fewer pulls and
with no change of position, and can immediately accelerate up to speed – for strength-saving, faster work.
NO MANUAL CARURETOR ADJUSTMENTSM-Tronic electronically adjusts the fuel dosage in the carburetor: whatever the operating status, whether starting, idling, partial or full-load. And it always takes account of external conditions. Saving you time and energy.
OPTIMAL ENGINE PERFORMANCE AT ALL TIMESThe control unit uses engine temperature and speed to continually monitor each operating status of your chain saw, feeding in the correct amount of fuel so that you always benefit from optimal engine performance.
SUPERB ACCELERATIONWith the STIHL MS 362 C-M, electronic ignition timing management and fuel dosage ensure fast and responsive acceleration – even from a cold start.
MEMORY FUNCTIONM-Tronic remembers your previous settings indefinitely and restores them when you restart the chain saw. So when external conditions are the same, full engine performance is immediately at your disposal every time you start.
The new HD2 air filter, made from PET material and featuring a radial seal, prevents the intake of fine dust particles. The hermetic seal increases the service life of the engine and reduces wear. Easy to Service, and Replace to keep you cutting!
Easy starting includes the decompression valve. Pressing the valve before starting reduces compression pressure and starter rope effort. The semi-automatic decompression valve opens manually but closes automatically.
When starting an internal combustion engine, the stresses are jerky because of the compression pressure. In the ElastoStart special starter grip, the damping element alternately absorbs and releases force based on how the grip is compressed. This makes for a smooth and even start.
STIHL 2-MIX engine
The two-stroke engine with STIHL 2-MIX technology saves up to 20 % of fuel and reduces emissions by up to 70 % compared to STIHL 2-stroke engines of the same performance class without 2-MIX technology.
When the air filter gets dirty, this controller in the carburetor keeps the mixture of fuel and air from getting too rich. Depending on how much air goes through the air filter, the correct amount of fuel is sent to the carburetor. This keeps the amount of fuel to air in the combustion mixture the same, which keeps the power of the engine the same as well. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until it loses enough power to be noticeable.
STIHL NEW OIL PUMP SYSTEM
The new oil pump system allows a higher volume of oil to be delivered. This is especially useful in dusty conditions or when using a long guide bar.
LOW POWER-TO-WEIGHT RATIO
The STIHL MS 462 C-M is the lightest professional chainsaw in its cubic capacity class. Special components, such as the cylinder with its angled cooling ribs, the compact sprocket cover, the light crankcase, the weight-optimised flywheel and the Rollomatic ES Light rail ensure that the machine is noticeably lighter.
OPTIMISED BUMPER SPIKES
The tooth length of the bumper spikes has been adjusted to account for the radial contours of trees. The saw bites into wood even better when cutting lengths and felling.
SIDE-MOUNTED CHAIN TENSIONING
Side-mounted chain tensioning makes it easy to tension the chain safely.
Optimised sprocket cover
The flatter, narrower sprocket cover with integrated slide rails reduces effort when pruning and ensures outstanding chip removal.
USER-FRIENDLY CALIBRATION FUCTION
User-friendly calibration function
The calibration of the STIHL M-Tronic system has been optimised further. There is no need for any manual corrections, even in specialised areas of application, e.g. in high mountain ranges. Calibration is completed within approx. 72 seconds after the machine is started.
TOOL FREE FUEL CAP
Special caps to open and close the tank cap quickly, easily and without tools. Located on both Gas & Bar Oil tanks for easy and quick access.
STIHL ANTI-VIBRATION SYSTEM
Precisely calculated buffer zones minimise the transfer of engine and saw chain vibrations to the front and rear handles. The chainsaw therefore runs noticeably smoother. This allows the user to save their strength and work longer.
