An optimal combination of torque, power, and weight – all in one chainsaw.
For all your tree felling, bucking, de-limbing, and other thinning operations turn to the MS 362 chainsaw. With its reduced weight and large fuel capacity, this saw mixes great power with fuel efficiency. Its advanced engine technology reduces exhaust emissions to provide you with a dependable tool for the job site. The MS 362 also runs longer between filter cleaning and features a lifetime air filter that you do not need to replace – just keep clean. The MS 362 is a no-fuss, hardworking chainsaw that will satisfy any professional tree or forestry personnel as well as firewood cutters.
Pre-Separation Air Filtration System
This time-saving technology boosts the efficiency of the engine’s filter system, doubling the time between air filter cleanings. Air drawn into the engine is first separated via centrifugal force, ejecting the heavier dirt particles before being routed to the air filter. This pre-separation means less dirt to be captured by the air filter, resulting in less frequent cleaning and maintenance.
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 location of the guide bar adjustment screw.
The decompression valve also referred to as ‘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.
STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
STIHL OILOMATIC Saw Chain
STIHL makes its own saw chains.
Includes a polymer ramp reservoir that holds bar oil until it can be picked up by a passing chain. This can reduce oil usage by up to 50%.
They help prevent pull-in and provide better control, making cuts easier.
Spark Arrester Muffler
