Stihl FS491C-EM Brushcutter Description

The Stihl FS491C-EM clearing saw is a heavy-duty tool that is designed for professional use. It is powered by a powerful 2.4 kW 2-MIX engine that provides plenty of torque for clearing even the most demanding vegetation. The saw also features a large cutting diameter of 520 mm, which makes it ideal for clearing large areas quickly and easily.

The FS491C-EM is also equipped with a number of features that make it comfortable to use for extended periods of time. These features include a 4-point anti-vibration system, an ErgoStart starter, and a multi-function handle. The saw also has a tool-free handle adjustment system that allows you to quickly and easily customize the saw to your individual needs.

In addition to its power and versatility, the FS491C-EM is also very easy to start and maintain. The ErgoStart starter system makes it easy to start the saw even in cold weather, and the 2-MIX engine is designed to be fuel-efficient and low-maintenance.

If you are looking for a powerful and versatile clearing saw that is easy to use and maintain, then the Stihl FS491C-EM is the perfect choice for you. It is the ideal tool for professional landscapers and homeowners alike.

Stihl FS491C-EM Brushcutter Features

STIHL M-Tronic - This fully electronic engine management system adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating modes. It also takes external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality into account. It ensures consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. M-Tronic makes manual carburettor adjustments unnecessary. Thanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition, now there is only one start position on the combi-lever. The engine starts after fewer pulls and with no change of position, and can immediately accelerate up to speed - even after a cold start. M-Tronic also remembers the settings from the last time the tool was used. So when external conditions are the same, optimal engine performance is available every time you start up again.

STIHL ErgoStart - STIHL ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.

Reduced-emission engine technology - 2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

Bike handle - When used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle enables a smooth mowing action. The bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, making it ideal for working on large areas and thus reducing fatigue.

Multi-function handle - The one-hand multi-function handle means you can control your device easily and reliably with one hand. Since all the relevant control elements are integrated in it, the handle is suitable for both right and left-handers.

Manuel fuel pump - With the manual fuel pump, fuel can be pumped into the carburettor at the push of a thumb. It makes starting the machine easier after it has been idle for a long time.

Tool-free handle adjustment - The ergonomic bike handle can be adjusted without tools.Improved anti-vibration system

Improved anti-vibration system - New rubber elements improve the anti-vibration system of the clearing saw, reducing the levels by more than 30% when at low speeds and partial load
