From demolition work to rescue work, professionals with the most demanding jobs demand STIHL. With a worldwide reputation for reliability and durability, STIHL Cutquik® cut-off machines boast features like the long-lasting X2 Air Filtration System, IntelliCarb™ compensating carburetor and lightweight balance and design. This year, STIHL offers yet another industry first with the TS 500i STIHL Cutquik®.

N
Anti-Vibration System helps to reduce operator fatigue.
O
Spark Arrestor Muffler has large baffles which reduce noise level, and contains a screen designed to reduce the emission of sparks.
