STIHL is cementing their position as a technology leader with the launch of the highly anticipated MS 500i; the world’s first electronic fuel injected chainsaw with never-before achieved power-to-weight ratio.
The STIHL injection technology not only provides the chainsaw of the future with incredible torque but also ensures rapid acceleration of the saw chain from 0 to 100 km/h in just 0.25 seconds.
The exemplarily lightweight design gives the MS 500i the best ever power-to-weight ratio at 1.24 kilograms per kilowatt, never before seen by series-manufactured chainsaws.
STIHL Marketing Manager Lee Gooch says, “We are proud to be part of something that has achieved perfection in lightweight and intelligent design with ergonomics at the forefront.”
“You are able to achieve high performance with low displacement and weight.”
The MS 500i has exceptional starting behaviour and provides optimum engine power right from start up. No matter what the altitude and ambient temperature is, the engine automatically adapts to the different operating conditions.
Together with the many additional design optimisations, the reduction of gyroscopic forces provides the high-performance professional saw with dynamic manoeuvrability which is a particular advantage during limbing. This gives the professional an easy to handle tool for all disciplines − from felling to cutting and length.
STIHL is no stranger to fuel injected machines. In 2012, the TS 500i cut-off saw launched as one of the most powerful and reliable machines on the market, able to survive even the toughest environment.
Since the MS 500i’s announcement in 2018, professionals and loyal followers alike have been chomping at the bit to get their hands on it.
With over 90 years of German engineering excellence, STIHL continues to stand the test of time.
Voted number one for quality garden power tools and specialist knowledge, STIHL reaffirms their place as the leader in innovative technology.
