STIHL FS461 C-EM L Professional Long-Shaft Clearing-Saw
If you’re looking to clear thick grass coverage from verges and ditches, then this premium-grade long-shaft clearing-saw provides that extra bit of reach you’ll need. It’s also a great choice for the taller gardener tackling regular grass-trimming applications.
The STIHL FS460 C-EM L packs-in the high-specification features. Key amongst these has to be Stihl’s innovative ‘M-Tronic’ engine-management system, whereby ignition-timing and fuel-metering are electronically controlled, in turn ensuring performance is continually being optimised – manual carburettor adjustments will be a thing of the past.
The engine itself is from STIHL’s revolutionary 2-MIX stable. These cutting-edge power-packs utilise the German manufacturer’s latest stratified-charge technology, so you can be sure of a 20% reduction in fuel-costs and a similarly impressive reduction in exhaust emissions. The engine on this model has a cylinder displacement of 45.6cc and develops a huge 3hp.
Thanks to its lightweight construction (8.6kg) and soft-padded harness, the STIHL FS460 C-EM L Professional Clearing Saw is well-suited to day-long use.
Its ergonomic ‘U’-type handlebar allows for the controlled sweeping action that achieves the best cutting-results; while its series of four shock-absorbers works to keep vibration-transfer from the engine to the operator’s hands at the lowest possible level.
Other noteworthy features include Stihl’s famed ErgoStart recoil-ignition technology, which makes pull-starting the engine an almost effortless operation; and a carburettor compensator that works to ensure there’s no noticeable drop in performance until the last minute before the air-filter needs to be cleaned.
An AutoCut 40-2 grass-mowing head is included with this model.
