Stihl recently introduced the world’s first lithium-ion-powered cut-off machine. The new battery-powered TSA 230 Stihl Cutquik cut-off machine starts with ease and changes the game for the jobsite, delivering maneuverability and solid cutting performance in a lightweight, compact package. With zero exhaust emissions, the TSA 230 enables indoor cutting in enclosed spaces and other jobsites where users are not permitted to use traditional gasoline-powered cut-off machines. Wet cutting is made easier with onboard water connection and control which suppresses dust. Dry cutting in dust-sensitive areas is aided by an available depth guide with vacuum adapter.
“The groundbreaking lithium-ion-powered Stihl TSA 230 enables professionals to complete a variety of tasks with one lightweight (8.6 pounds*) machine,” said Daniel Pherson, Stihl Inc. product manager. “Quick startups, excellent balance, and portability make it easy to use.”
The cut-off machine is fueled by a low-maintenance, brushless, commercial-grade, high-torque electric motor, creating little noise. Low vibration and the lightweight design help reduce operator fatigue and increase maneuverability, while providing the power needed to get light hardscaping and construction jobs done.
An addition to the well-established family of Stihl Battery KombiSystem products, the TSA 230 joins a line of tools that utilize the advanced 36-volt lithium-ion battery system. This first-of-its-kind tool eliminates the need for fuel, saving users money and minimizing required maintenance.
The breakthrough battery technology of the cut-off machine provides operators with up to 20 minutes of quality and high performance with no gradual drop in power. The re-charge rate is quick, especially with the optional Rapid Charger.
