The Stihl MS 462 C-M and MS 462 R C-M chain saws were specially engineered for the professional user who desires more power and reduced weight, resulting in less user fatigue. Both chain saw models feature an excellent power-to-weight ratio. These chain saws feature the next generation of the Stihl M-Tronic engine management system, which electronically controls ignition timing and fuel metering. Conveniently, the saws auto-adjust or adapt to varying operating conditions, such as changes in altitude and fuel quality for optimal performance. An anti-vibration system ensures acceptable handling, especially with longer guide bars, making the MS 462 C-M chain saws the partner you’ll want by your side all day.
“At just 13 pounds and 13.9 pounds, respectively, the Stihl MS 462 C-M and MS 462 R C-M chain saws are the lightest professional gasoline-powered chain saws in their class,” said Kent Hall, product manager for Stihl Inc. “These chain saws offer powerful performance and maneuverability fit for any forest.”
Features of the Stihl MS 462 C-M chain saws include:
- Slim sprocket cover reduces weight and wood chip clogging, decreasing down time spent removing wood chips from the cover.
- Unique bumper spike design has fewer teeth with wider spacing, helping users maintain control when bucking and felling trees.
- Vertical and horizontal felling marks on the fan housing to provide better directional guidance.
- Low-emissions engine means fuel efficiency, so users can spend more time cutting and less time (and money) refueling.
- Stihl Ematic oil pump, when combined with the Stihl Oilomatic saw chain, provides maximum lubrication, longer wear and up to 50 percent less oil consumption.
- Pre-separation air filtration combined with the HD 2 air filter offers an efficient filtering system, resulting in less frequent filter maintenance.
- Easy maintenance access with cover screws that unlock with just a quarter-turn rotation, making it easy for users to remove the engine cover to perform routine maintenance tasks, such as spark plug replacement and cylinder cleaning.
- Side-access chain tensioner allows the user to conveniently tighten the chain on the guide bar.
- Toolless fuel and oil filter cap to make refueling and adding oil easy.
