Stihl MS400C-M Petrol Chainsaw
Offering high performance and excellent power to weight ratio, the Stihl MS400C-M petrol chainsaw is designed with professionals in mind. With an effective anti vibration system whereby the machine's engine is dampened which reduces vibrations significantly reduced to allow for longer periods of use with comfort. The MS400C_M is the world's first chain to boast a magnesium piston technology, the magnesium piston is 14% lighter than a aluminium piston, resulting in rapid acceleration.
Featuring a Stihl 2-Mix engine which uses 1-in-4 channel technology to provide high torque over a wide speed range. Compared to a standard 2 stroke engine, the 2-Mix engine provides fuel savings of up to 20% whilst reducing exhaust emissions by up to 50%. The MS400C-M also comes with a HD2 air filter which is made from polyethylene material offering up to 70% finer pores compared to a fleece air filter, allowing it to catch even very fine dust. The HD2 air filter is oil and water repellent so can be cleaned easily. The filter is easy to remove without the need of tools with a quick release lock.
The MS400C-M is easy to start thanks to the ElastoStart feature and the decompression valve. The ElastoStart reduced the shock on the recoil thanks to a spring in the starter handle, while the decompression valve reduced the compression making the recoil easier to pull. The decompression valve is semi-automatic it must be pressed manually before starting and once the chainsaw is started the valve automatically closes.
Boasting M-Tronic engine management, the MS400C-M chainsaw engine automatically adjusts the the ignition timing and fuel metering and takes in to consideration the external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality. It provides consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. The M-Tronic engine recognises a cold or warm start so the chainsaw has a combi lever to start, so regardless of if it's a cold or warm start the chainsaw starts up with ease and optimum acceleration is achieve in a few seconds.
Captive nuts on the sprocket reduce the risk of losing the nuts. To tension the chain with ease and without the need to have contact with the chain, the tensioning screw is located on the side of the sprocket cover. A variable displacement oil pump allows for precise oil delivery dependant on the job in hand.
