Description

The Stihl MS462 C-M Chainsaw is the lightest high-performance saw in the 70 cm³ cubic capacity class. Extraordinarily easy to manoeuvre, with outstanding acceleration. For felling and pruning in medium-density and high-density stands. Fitted with M-Tronic as standard; HD2 filter with very good filtering effect. Captive nuts on the sprocket cover make it easy to change the chain; tool-free fuel caps for easy and safe filling with fuels and lubricants; economical 2-MIX engine.

  • STIHL M-Tronic (M)
    STIHL M-Tronic (M)

    This fully electronic engine management system adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating modes. It also takes external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality into account. It ensures consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. M-Tronic makes manual carburettor adjustments unnecessary. Thanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition, now there is only one start position on the combi-lever. The engine starts after fewer pulls and with no change of position, and can immediately accelerate up to speed – even after a cold start. M-Tronic also remembers the settings from the last time the tool was used. So when external conditions are the same, optimal engine performance is available every time you start up again.

  • Decompression valve
    Decompression valve

    The decompression valve is part of the easy starting system. The valve should be pressed before starting to reduce the compression pressure when starting, as well as reducing the effort needed to pull the starter rope. The decompression valve is semi-automatic; it must be pressed manually before starting, but then closes automatically.

  • Side chain tensioner
    Side chain tensioner

    The tensioning screw can be found on the side of the Stihl MS462 C-M Chainsaw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.

  • Tool free filler caps
    Tool free filler caps

    Special catches on the fuel and oil tanks for easy opening and locking without the need for tools.

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

    1-in-4 channel technology. The economical STIHL 2-MIX engine with 1-in-4channel technology features a high torque over a wide speed range. The chainsaw provides fuel savings of up to 20% compared to STIHL two-stroke engines in the same performance class without 2-MIX technology. Exhaust emissions are reduced by up to 50%.

  • Anti-vibration system
    Anti-vibration system

    Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

  • Stop button function
    Stop button function

    After the Stihl MS462 C-M Chainsaw is turned off, the control lever immediately moves back into the operating position. This allows a warm machine to be restarted again immediately.

  • Compensator
    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.

  • Captive nuts
    Captive nuts

    When changing the cutting attachment, you will not risk losing the nuts on the sprocket. The MS 261 is the first STIHL chainsaw to be equipped with the captive nuts. A great advantage for all users.

  • Optimised sprocket cover
    Optimised sprocket cover

    The flatter, narrower sprocket cover with integrated slide rails reduces effort when pruning and ensures outstanding chip removal.

  • Low power to weight ratio
    Low power to weight ratio

    The STIHL MS 462 C-M is the lightest professional chainsaw in its cubic capacity class. Special components, such as the cylinder with its angled cooling ribs, the compact sprocket cover, the light crankcase, the weight-optimised flywheel and the Rollomatic ES Light rail ensure that the machine is noticeably lighter.

  • STIHL Ematic with new oil pump systemZoom
    STIHL Ematic with new oil pump system

    The new oil pump system allows a higher volume of oil to be delivered. This is especially useful in dusty conditions or when using a long guide bar.

  • HD2 filter with radial seal
    HD2 filter with radial seal

    The new HD2 air filter, made from PET material and featuring a radial seal, prevents the intake of fine dust particles. The hermetic seal increases the service life of the engine and reduces wear.

  • User-friendly calibration function
    User-friendly calibration function

    The calibration of the STIHL M-Tronic system has been optimised further. There is no need for any manual corrections, even in specialised areas of application, e.g. in high mountain ranges. Calibration is completed within approx. 72 seconds after the machine is started.

  • Optimised bumper spikes
    Optimised bumper spikes

    The tooth length of the bumper spikes has been adjusted to account for the radial contours of trees. The saw bites into wood even better when cutting lengths and felling.

  • Plunge guide

    Marking has been added to the fan housing to assist with plunge cuts. This ensures better directional control and safe use of the machine during plunge cutting.

Warranty

Purchased from Masseys – If your chainsaw was purchased from Masseys and it develops a manufacturing fault during the warranty period, simply return the chainsaw to store and our mechanics will repair the machine free of charge. A warranty repair is when the machine has failed because of improper material or workmanship, under normal use and maintenance.

Purchased online – If you chainsaw was purchased from elsewhere, then we charge an initial £29.99 inspection charge to look at the machine. This will be refunded if the fault is a warranty issue and when the manufacturer has processed and accepted the warranty claim in full. Warranty for non-Masseys customers is 4-12 weeks as we have a duty to ensure our own customers are prioritised first.
