Air is separated with centrifugal force, removing heavier dirt particles and travelling to the air filter. This pre-separation means less dirt to be captured by the air filter, resulting in less frequent cleaning, maintenance, and replacement. The side-access chain tensioner makes it convenient for to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw.

The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw. STIHL uses a green and yellow color-coding system to help you select a powerhead, bar and chain combination that complies with the kickback requirements of ANSI Standard B175.1 (gasoline-powered saws) and §30 of UL 1662/ ANSI Standard B175.1 (electric chainsaws). 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.
