Stihl MS500i ChainsawFeatures of Stihl MS500i

STIHL Injection (i) – This enables the MS 500i to achieve extremely high performance with both low displacement and low weight. The saw uses innovative technology to achieve rapid acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in an unbelievable 0.25 seconds.

Best power-to-weight ratio – This is thanks to the new engine technology and lightweight construction. The MS500i is ideal for heavy timber felling, cutting into lengths, and pruning.

Sensor-controlled fuel metering – The MS 500i has a pressure and internal temperature sensor in its engine so the oiptimum level of fuel is delivered quickly.

Very easy to start, whether starting from cold or warm – The starting process is perfect, with no need for a start position, and easy access to the purger.

STIHL 2-MIX engine – The two-stroke engine with STIHL 2-MIX technology saves up to 20 % of fuel and reduces emissions by up to 70 % compared to STIHL 2-stroke engines.

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 and reduces wear.

Decompression valve – Part of the easy starting system. The valve should be pressed before starting to reduce the compression pressure when starting.

STIHL ElastoStart –  Results in the smooth pulling of the starter cord.

Side-mounted chain tensioning – Makes it easy to tension the chain safely.

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.

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.

Tool free fuel caps – Special caps to open and close the tank cap quickly, easily and without tools.

STIHL anti-vibration system – Precisely calculated buffer zones minimise the transfer of engine and saw chain vibrations to the front and rear handles.

Captive nuts – You will not risk losing the nuts on the sprocket. – Optimised sprocket cover – ensures outstanding chip removal.

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.
