Supplied with a chisel-tooth blade and built around a shorter shaft, this top-of-the-range clearing saw from Stihl is the ideal tool for forestry applications where, as is common, space is at a premium.
Technologically advanced, the Stihl FS460 C-EM K features Stihl’s impressive ‘M-Tronic’ electronic engine-management system. This adjusts ignition-timing and fuel-mixture to suit the prevailing conditions, in turn ensuring optimum engine performance is continuously maintained (manual carburettor-adjustments are not required).
The engine itself is a hugely powerful 3hp Stihl two-stroke air-cooled unit, which incorporates the German manufacturer's cutting-edge stratified-charge technology - this allows for a more lightweight build, without compromising on power-output; and works to cut fuel-consumption by 20-percent. Exhaust emissions are also greatly reduced.
Firing-up the engine is a totally straightforward process, aided by Stihl’s ErgoStart system, which takes the strain out of pull-starts.
Because it’s supplied with an ergonomic padded shoulder-harness and weighs just 8.4kg, the Stihl FS460 C-EM K Professional Clearing Saw will remain comfortable to work with during very lengthy sessions.
Its highly effective four-point anti-vibration system protects against blood-vessel damage in the user’s hands; while its wide-grip ‘cowhorn’-style handle facilitates the smooth sweeping action that achieves the best results when working with a clearing saw.
This model also features a carburettor compensator that works to keep the air/fuel mixture constant as the air filter becomes progressively dirtier.
