Features

FS 460 C-EM

Standard features

  • STIHL M-TRONIC Zoom
    STIHL M-TRONIC

    RELIABLE WORK WITH THE BEST PERFORMANCE. With STIHL M-Tronic, you’ll have the best performance from your work tool from the outset. Fully electronic engine management regulates the ignition timing and fuel metering in all work situations, taking into account external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality.

  • ERGONOMIC BIKE HANDLE Zoom
    ERGONOMIC BIKE HANDLE

    EFFORTLESS MOWING OF LARGE AREAS. The ergonomic bike handle helps you mow large areas quickly and effortlessly, as this handle supports a natural brushcutter movement. The bike handle is easy to adjust and secure.

  • STOP BUTTON Zoom
    STOP BUTTON

    RESTART WORK QUICKLY. With the stop button, you can switch off your power tool quickly and easily for a short break, for example. As the button springs back to its original position after actuation, the engine is immediately ready to start again. This provides more comfort after breaks and increases your work efficiency.

  • CHANGEOVER BETWEEN SUMMER AND WINTER OPERATION Zoom
    CHANGEOVER BETWEEN SUMMER AND WINTER OPERATION

    EASY CONVERSION THANKS TO SLIDERS. You can easily adapt your work tool to the different conditions of the seasons. A slider allows you to easily switch between summer and winter operation. The winter setting ensures that the air filter and carburettor do not ice up.

  • LARGE FUEL TANK Zoom
    LARGE FUEL TANK

    FOR LONGER WORKING INTERVALS. The large fuel tank allows you to work longer without having to refuel. Thanks to its transparent material, you can check the fill level of your tank quickly and easily. The filler cap is firmly attached so that you cannot lose it.

  • LONG AIR FILTER SERVICE LIFE Zoom
    LONG AIR FILTER SERVICE LIFE

    ENSURES LONG CHANGEOVER INTERVALS. Thanks to its long service life, you rarely need to change the easily accessible filter. This saves resources and reduces maintenance effort.

  • Start flap lever (M-Tronic) Zoom
    Start flap lever (M-Tronic)

    With the M-Tronic, you do not have to worry about cold or warm start. With M-Tronic there is only one starting position on the start flap lever. The system detects cold or warm start automatically and electronically calculates the exact amount of fuel. You can start with fewer starting strokes and can apply full throttle immediately. If you press the throttle trigger the start rotary switch will automatically return to the operating position. (similar to illustration)

  • Locking plug-in bolt Zoom
    Locking plug-in bolt

    Changing the tool is made particularly easy by locking the plug-in bolt in place. (similar to illustration)

  • STIHL ErgoStart (FT) Zoom
    STIHL ErgoStart (FT)

    STIHL ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.

  • STIHL 2-MIX-Engine Zoom
    STIHL 2-MIX-Engine

    2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

  • Multi-function control handle Zoom
    Multi-function control handle

    Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.

  • STIHL 4-point anti-vibration system Zoom
    STIHL 4-point anti-vibration system

    In STIHL brushcutters, steel springs act as anti-vibration elements to reduce the transmission of vibrations caused by the motor and rotary cutter. The handles therefore have extremely low vibration and the devices is easy to guide. (similar to illustration)

  • Tool free handle adjustment Zoom
    Tool free handle adjustment

    The central wing nut enables easy adjustment without the use of tools. For transportation and space-saving storage, the handle can be rotated by 90°.

  • Compensator Zoom
    Compensator

    This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.

  • Manual fuel pump (Purger) Zoom
    Manual fuel pump (Purger)

    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.
