The latest technology in this advanced tool from STIHL

As STIHL's most advanced ever clearing saw, you can expect the very latest technology and innovations in this tool, ideal for anyone with large areas of tough, overgrown grass to maintain.

State of the art engine management system

What really sets this machine apart from the pack is STIHL's M-Tronic engine management system, which adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering electronically. It takes external conditions like temperature, altitude and fuel quality into account, ensuring consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and excellent acceleration. Additionally, the M-Tronic system allows the engine to start after fewer pulls with no change of position, starting with the optimal settings from the last use.

Comfortable operation

The bike handle, when used with a harness, enables a smooth mowing action. You can easily guide the machine like this, without fatigue, making it particularly well suited to larger areas. STIHL's four point anti-vibration system uses elements to reduce the transmission of vibrations caused by the motor and rotary cutter. This leaves the handles with extremely low vibration and makes the device easy to guide. The handle can be adjusted without using tools, as well as rotated by 90 degrees for transportation and storage.

Efficient, low-emission running

The 2-stroke engine in the FS 460 C-EM includes stratified charge, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This means more power with lower weight, up to 20% less fuel consumption and much lower exhaust emissions. A large fuel tank (0.75 litres) results in less stops while working, but it it also easily accessible, making refilling simple.

An AutoCut 46-2 mowing head, an ADVANCE universal harness, and a pair of standard safety glasses are included with the machine.
