This is a saw that you have to use in order to believe how good it is. One of the contractors that had the luxury of trying one out physically stated that the only way you are getting this saw off me is if you pry it out of my hands when I'm dead! Well, I don't even know where to start. Mankind during its time on the earth has built and constructed mouth-watering things but nothing sends a shiver down my spine more then Stihl's new MS 462 C-M chainsaw. You've just gotta have it!

The new Rollematic ES lightweight bar is the lightest 20" bar ever made by Stihl and it definitely does not come at the cost of durability and strength. It is designed for felling and pruning in medium-density and high density stands to make it perfect for the individual that is using it commercially or cutting a large amount of firewood for personal use. Even for the bloke that just wants the best saw on the market even if he's only cutting wood for a fire in his shed.

Hell, I live in a two-bedroom unit in town and I'm buying one just to cut my one-meter pittosporum hedge! Fitted with Stihl's exceptional M-Tronic technology it delivers better tuning, a better cut and better efficiency. The HD2 filter is also Stihl's best filtration system in the range meaning this saw is built to last.

Stihl M-Tronic Technology
This innovative technology is one small step for man, and one giant step for mankind! The fully electronic engine management system adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating models. The saw during the first few cuts will take into consideration conditions such as the altitude, fuel quality and temperature in order to produce the most efficient cut at the time. It also makes manual carby adjustments unnecessary as the electronic start recognition can determine whether the saw is starting from cold or warm meaning there is no choke and just one starting position. The M-Tronic technology can also remember previous conditions so if it is used in the same scenario again it will automatically be at optimal performance from the first cut.
Stihl ElastoStart
Stihl elastostart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine when starting it. The shock is reduced by the users joints and muscles through the spring or rubber element in the starter handle making it more comfortable to start for the operator.
Stihl 2-Mix Engine
The result of this is a saw which is more fuel efficient while running cleaner. This is due to the the advanced stratified charge system that increases the power of the saw at the same time as minimising consumption. Resulting in increased fuel efficiency which is better for your wallet. Saves 20% of fuel and reduces emissions by up to 70% compared to other Stihl 2-stroke engines!!!
HD2 Filter with Radial Seal
This new filter design from Stihl is made from PET material and features a radial seal which prevents the engine from taking in fine dust particles increasing the longevity of the engine and increases the service life.
User-friendly calibration function
This is why the MS 462 C-M chainsaw is lifting the bar even higher. the calibration of the Stihl M-Tronic system has been optimised even further. It does require the user to make a manual corrections and this is for even areas which are very unique such as high mountain altitudes. Takes roughly 72 seconds for the calibration to be complete after the saw has started.
Side Chain Tensioning
On the side of the chainsaw, on the sprocket cover is an easily accessible screw to tighten the chain accordingly.
New Stihl Ematic Oil Pump system
This new oil pump system allows for a larger quantity of oil to be delivered to the bar. This is ideal for dustier conditions if you decided to operate it with a longer guide bar.
Is the process of the controller in the carby preventing the fuel-air mixture from getting too rich when the air filter gets blocked up. Ensuring the right amount of fuel is delivered to the carby while taking into consideration the amount of air coming through the air filter. This ensures the mixture is constant and in return results in constant engine power.
Decompression Value
The decomp valve needs to be pushed down when starting which minimises the compression pressure when you pull it over making it easier to start. The decamp value is semi-automatic meaning that it has to be manually engaged but it will automatically disengage when your saw kicks over.
Anti-Vibraton System
Using a chainsaw always results is significant vibration causing fatigue for the operator. Thats why Stihl's anti-vibration system is an innovative piece of technology that sets it apart from the rest. The vibration system sees the oscillations from the engine dampened reducing the handle vibration. MS 462 C-M has higher quality vibration buffer points to improve its anti vibration.
Optimised Sprocket cover
This revamp of the sprocket cover see's it flatter, narrower and with integrated side rails to reduce the effort needed by the operator when pruning and also ensures a more efficient chip removal.
Low Power to Weight Ratio
The Stihl MS 462 C-M chainsaw is the lightest profession chainsaw in the 70cc class making it the one to have. A number of features contribute to this such as the cylinder with its angled cooling ribs, the compact sprocket cover, light crankcase, weight-optimised flywheel and the Rollomatic ES light guide bar.
Stop Button Function
After the machine is turned off it automatically moves back to the operating position to allow for immediate warm restart.
Captive Bar Nuts
The bar nuts are held captive to the sprocket cover, so you can't lose them when change the bar, chain etc. Although if you loose the sprocket cover this feature won't be much help to you!
Optimised Bumper Spikes
Stihl have gotten very technical with the bumper spikes adjusting their length and angle to account for the radial contours of trees allowing it to bite into the wood better then ever.
Punge Guide
Marking has been put onto the fan cover to assist the operator with plunge cuts. This ensures better directional control and makes the saw a lot safer to use during the process.
Tool Free Fuel and Oil Caps
These Stihl designed caps are tool free and seal perfectly ensuring no leakage.
