STIHL MS 500i: Pioneering chainsaw with fuel injection
The innovative MS 500i chainsaw from STIHL is the world’s first chainsaw with electronically controlled fuel injection. Its agile, performance-optimised engine accelerates very quickly. Thanks to its extremely successful lightweight design, this tool achieves an impressively low power-to-weight ratio of 1.24 kg/kW. This high-torque machine is a powerful solution for use in professionally harvesting large timber.
Working with the MS 500i means maximum operating enjoyment resulting from powerful performance. The machine features a simple start-up sequence as well as very good starting behaviour under all usage conditions. Sensory fuel metering guarantees that the mixture is directly adapted to the oxygen content of the air. Like the MS 462, this saw can be very easily pivoted and – thanks to its new bumper spikes and sprocket cover – can be guided close to tree trunks.
You can find videos showing you how to fill your machine with fuel and oil, fit bars and chains and start your chainsaw here.
