Reduced-Emission Engine Technology – Caring for Nature
The STIHL Inc. â€œCaring for Natureâ€ seal identifies its powered products that are more environmentally conscious, producing zero or low exhaust emissions. STIHL Inc. defines â€œlow exhaust emissionsâ€ as being cleaner than EPA and/or CARB exhaust emission standards.
The STIHL Easy2Startâ„¢ system makes starting STIHL outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products fast and easy. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engineâ€™s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.
The quick-release coupling system makes it easy to switch between Kombi attachments. In addition, this feature allows KombiSystem equipment to be dismantled into two parts for easy transport and storage and then re-assembled quickly without tools.
A split shaft and special toolless quick-release coupling lets you easily switch between attachments, making the KombiSystem highly versatile as well as easy to transport and store.
Electronic Ignition Module

Multi-Function Control Handle
Having easy access to all of the controls on one comfortable handle help makes it easier to complete tasks so the operatorâ€™s hand never has to leave the handle.
Purge Pump Primer
