The STIHL MS 462 C-M was specially engineered for the pro-user who desires more power with less weight and thus less user fatigue from their chainsaw in daily forestry work. At just 13 pounds, the MS 462 C-M is the lightest-ever STIHL chainsaw produced in its fuel-powered class. It features an excellent power-to-weight ratio for added maneuverability tested by professionals in the field. The next generation STIHL M-Tronic™ engine management system electronically controls ignition timing and fuel metering. Conveniently, the saw auto-adjusts for changes in its operating environment, such as changes in altitude and fuel quality, for optimal performance. The anti-vibration system is designed for good handling when the MS 462 C-M is equipped with longer guide bars while still reducing vibration which equals less fatigue for the user.
Adjustable Automatic Oiler – The Adjustable Automatic Oiler allows the user to adjust the lubricant of the guide bar and saw chain for different bar lengths and cutting conditions.
Anti-Vibration System – STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
Reduced-Emission Engine Technology – Caring for Nature – The STIHL Inc. “Caring for Nature” seal identifies its powered products that are more environmentally conscious, producing zero or low exhaust emissions. STIHL Inc. defines “low exhaust emissions” as being cleaner than EPA and/or CARB exhaust emission standards.
STIHL ElastoStart™ – The ElastoStart™ starter handle is an exclusive feature of STIHL. It is a starting grip with a built-in shock absorber that helps reduce the effort when pulling on the starter cord. The ElastoStart™ starter grip noticeably reduces the sudden peak forces (compression) normally felt during cranking. The forces which occur at the grip after the first compression stroke are smoothed out.
STIHL M-Tronic™ – This product features M-Tronic™ (M) – a new generation of Intelligent Engine Management that eliminates the low and high-speed carburetor adjustment screws, compensates for a dirty air filter, and changes in elevation and fuel quality for optimum engine power at all times.
