TS 480i

The world’s first fuel injected cut-off saw with a 12″ cutting wheel

Category:

The TS 480i is part of STIHL’s new line of electronically controlled fuel injected cut-off machines; a first in the handheld outdoor power equipment industry. This powerful and lightweight saw comes with a 12” cutting wheel, a long-life X2 air filtration system and electronic water control system. The low-emission fuel injected cut-off saw provides optimal torque throughout the rpm range. No carburetor means no choke needed – just purge and pull the start cord! An industry first, only from STIHL.

STIHL Injection (i)

The electronically controlled fuel injection ensures an excellent performance and reduced fuel consumption compared to other tools without a fuel injection system.

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.

Pre-separation air filtration system

STIHL long-life air filtration systems with pre-separation achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional filter systems. Air drawn in is swirled. The larger, heavier particles are ejected. The pre-cleaned air is routed to the air filter via the pre-separator duct.

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.The chainsaw therefore runs noticeably smoother. This allows the user to save their strength and work longer.

Semi automatic V-belt tensioning

Light, consistent re-tensioning increases the service life of the belts and shaft bearings.

STIHL ElastoStart

STIHL ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. The compression shock is taken away from the user's joints and muscles through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle.

Decompression valve

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