An ideal clearing saw for professionals.

High levels of power and a robust design make the FS 490 C-EM a great choice if you need a reliable, capable clearing saw for tough tasks.

The latest technology

STIHL's M-Tronic electronic engine management system is included as standard in this machine, adjusting ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating modes. Temperature, altitude and fuel quality are all taken into account to ensure consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. With the M-Tronic system, manual carburettor adjustments are a thing of the past. It also provides the benefit of making starting the machine easier. Along with the ErgoStart system and a simplified starting process, you'll find you can start the machine more quickly, more reliably, and with less force than ever before.

Powerful & efficient 2-MIX engine

The revolutionary technology continues with STIHL's 2-stroke engine with stratified charge. This reduces the amount of fuel lost during the charging cycle, lowering fuel consumption by up to 20% compared to regular 2-stroke engines. This technology also results in more power with a lower weight, as well as significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

Comfortable & easy operation

Bike handle operation allows for a smooth mowing action when used in conjunction with a harness - perfect for mowing over large distances without fatigue. The handle can be adjusted without the need for tools, including rotation of 90 degrees, enabling the machine to be easily stored or transported. A multi-function control handle permits easy, comfortable operation without the need for your hand to leave the handle. STIHL's 4-point anti-vibration system uses steel springs to reduce the transmission of vibrations to the handle, making the FS 490 C-EM an extremely comfortable tool to operate.
