“The Stihl MS 461 has had a recall (2017) in some countries due to pinched or leaking fuel lines, so always a good idea to check your chainsaw is not leaking fuel.”
The ElastoStart starter handle is an exclusive feature of STIHL. It is a starting grip with a built-in shock absorber that helps reduce the effort when pulling on the starter cord. The ElastoStart™ starter grip noticeably reduces the sudden peak forces (compression) normally felt during cranking. The forces which occur at the grip after the first compression stroke are smoothed out.
The decompression valve, also called ‘deco’ or ‘deco valve’, vents compression in the cylinder for easier starting. The decompression valve temporarily reduces the compression in the combustion chamber during cranking and helps reduce the effort needed to pull the starter rope. It is opened manually and closes automatically as soon as the engine fires.
IntelliCarb Compensating Carburetor
The IntelliCarb Compensating Carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the air/fuel ratio when the air filter becomes restricted or partly clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM. IntelliCarb uses air from the clean side of the air filter to control the diaphragm and flow of fuel. As the air filter becomes dirty and less air is available for the carburetor, the IntelliCarb system adjusts the fuel flow to compensate for the decrease in airflow. This contrasts with typical carburetors that use this air from the “dirty” side of the air box.
Side-Access Chain Tensioner
The side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical place of the guide bar adjustment screw.
Adjustable Automatic Oiler
The Adjustable Automatic Oiler allows the user to adjust the lubricant of the guide bar and saw chain for different bar lengths and cutting conditions.
Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers
Simply lift the lever and twist the caps to remove or tighten. There‘s no need to use a tool to tighten or loosen.
