Stihl Chain Saw Features
Anti-Vibration System aka the AV System. The AV System was incorporated into Stihl chainsaws as a series of ant-vibration buffers to help reduce operator
fatigue caused by the vibration of the chainsaw engine and cutting bar.
Front and Rear Hand Guards
The rear hand guard is design to protect your right hand while operating the
Stihl chainsaw. The front guard performs two functions. One of these is to protect
your left hand from reaching the cutting area if it were to slip off of the chainsaw handlebar. And the second is to function as the chain brake device stopping the chain from moving if the chainsaw were to kick back while cutting.
Throttle Trigger Interlock
Stihl's Throttle Trigger Interlock prevents the throttle lever to be depressed as long as your hand isn't completely wrapped around the rear hand guard. This safety device has been incorporated into Stihl chainsaws for years and has
proven to be a great innovation in chainsaw safety. This interlocking device prevents accidental acceleration of the chainsaw engine which in turn could cause serious injury.
Stihl chainsaws with higher displacement engines come with a decompression valve. The decompression valve releases the pressure in the cylinder chamber allowing for an easier pull when starting the chainsaw. Once the chainsaw has started
the valve closes allowing the engine to run with full compression.
Some of Stihll chainsaws come with a Winter/Summer Shutter. This device when opened allows warm air from the chainsaw's cylinder head to be drawn into the air-box where the air envelopes the
carburetor keeping it from icing up in cold or
damp working conditions. Then in the summer the shutter would be closed bypassing the warm air away from the chainsaw's air-box.
Some of Stihl chainsaws are equipped with adjustable air and fuel flow settings for the chainsaw
carburetor. This option can be a real help if you are cutting wood in high altitudes or other extreme environments.
Stihl chainsaws are designed with two fluid reservoirs. One is for the fuel and oil mixture that runs the chainsaw and the other
reservoir is for the bar chain lubrication system. Always put mixed oil/gas
into the fuel tank reservoir. Never put raw unmixed gas into the fuel tank
reservoir thinking the oil from the bar chain reservoir will mix with it. It won't! The typical Stihl chainsaw requires a 50:1 fuel to oil mixture,
but always check with your Stihl operator's manual to ascertain the mixing requirements for your chainsaw.
Adjustable Oil Pump
This feature is available on many of Stihl's newer saws being made today. The adjustable bar chain oil pump allows the operator to control the speed in which the chain gets lubricated. Insuring proper lubrication of the
chain while cutting many different variations of lumber hardness and thickness or when using different bar lengths.
