MS 462

Fit for any forest

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. 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 ElastoStart

Due to compression pressure, jerky stresses occur when starting internal combustion engines. The damping element in the ElastoStart special starter grip alternately absorbs and releases force according to the compression pattern. The result is smooth, even starting.

Controlled-delivery oil pump

Different bar lengths, wood types and sawing techniques require different amounts of oil. The controlled-delivery oil pump allows the user to select just the right amount of oil for the job at hand.

Side-mounted chain tensioning

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

STIHL anti-vibration system

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.

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.

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.
