Features
  • STIHL 4-MIX® engine

You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX® engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX® engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.

  • Decompression system

The decompression valve allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.

  • Built-in sound damper

The BR 500 with built-in sound damper is built for use in noise-sensitive areas. The measured noise reduction for the human ear is up to 59% compared to the previous model** Despite the relatively low noise emission, the BR 500 is a strong, reliable helper with high performance. **Measured according to EN-ISO22868.

 

  • Anti-vibration system

Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

  • Multi-function control handle

Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.

 

  • Ergonomic harness

Evenly distributes the weight between the user's shoulders, back, hips and upper thighs. With soft padding for increased comfort during prolonged use and when working on large areas.
