The STIHL GS 461 features a modern, low-emission STIHL 2-MIX engine. Depending on how the machine is used, 2-MIX engines consume up to 20% less fuel compared to STIHL 2-stroke engines of the same performance class without 2-MIX technology. The 2-MIX engine also delivers great performance with high torque over a wide rpm range.
Side-mounted chain tensioning makes it easy to tension the chain safely.
Special caps to open and close the tank cap quickly, easily and without tools.
Precisely calculated buffer zones minimise the transfer of engine and saw chain vibrations to the front and rear handles. The chainsaw therefore runs noticeably smoother. This allows the user to save their strength and work longer.
Compared to conventional bars without Ematic, the STIHL Ematic system reduces the consumption of chain lubricant by up to 50 %, depending on the type of wood and the cutting attachment used. This system comprises a STIHL Ematic or Ematic S guide bar, a STIHL Oilomatic saw chain and a variable-flow or reduced-flow oil pump. As a result, virtually every drop of chain lubricant is delivered to exactly the right spot.
Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. The result is lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range.
