TS 480i STIHL Cutquik®
Electronically controlled fuel-injection technology gives the TS 480i STIHL Cutquik® 17% more power as compared to the STIHL TS 410.
The TS 480i STIHL Cutquik® cut-off machine features an electronically controlled fuel-injection system, increasing the power by 17% as compared to the STIHL TS 410.
Powerful, lightweight and well-balanced, the STIHL TS 480i is designed for superior handling during the toughest jobs (maximum wheel size is 12 inches). With low exhaust emissions, the engine provides optimal torque throughout the RPM range and eliminates the need for a choke, simplifying the starting procedure. The standard electronic water control feature allows for easy and efficient water flow adjustment while operating. The X2 air filtration system is virtually maintenance-free and maintains an incredible 99.96% cleaning efficiency.
At STIHL, we dedicate considerable resources toward developing new and innovative technology that increases efficiency and improves performance for our line of construction equipment. STIHL Cutquik® cut-off machines are known for superior fuel efficiency, operator comfort, powerful and precise cutting performance and much more. Check out a few of the features that you’ll find on every STIHL Cutquik® cut-off machine:
- Electronic Ignition provides easier starting and smoother running.
- Anti-Vibration System minimizes the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
- Ergonomic Grip provides an optimal comfortable grip in many working positions.
- High-Performance Cooling System for superior airflow and heat dissipation.
- Quick Disconnect Water Kit reduces dust when cutting concrete when attached to a water supply.
- Reversible Cutting Arm lets you cut in the inboard or outboard position.
- Semi-Automatic Belt Tensioner features a spring-loaded arm that automatically adjusts the drive belt to the correct tension with the turn of a wrench.
- 2-Ring Pistons improve engine efficiency and hold compression longer than 1-ring pistons. Also they transfer heat from the piston to cylinder better, helping engine stay cooler and last longer.
- Long-Life Engine Cylinders provide optimal cooling, lubrication and more power output per cubic centimeter of engine displacement for maximum wear life.
- On/Off Switch is conveniently located on top of handle and recessed to prevent accidental shutdown.
- High-tech Polymer Housings are lightweight, withstand greater impact and are corrosion resistant.
- Protected Decompression Valve reduces the compression in the combustion chamber during cranking and helps reduce the effort needed to pull the starter rope.
- Protected Spark Plug is protected yet easy to change.
- Protected Throttle Trigger helps prevent damage.
- Throttle Trigger Lockout must be depressed before the trigger can be activated.
- Bayonet-Style Fuel Cap with dust-resistant seal and retainer for easy use, even with gloves.
- Upright and Enlarged Fuel Port for easy fueling.

Reduced-Emission Engine Technology - Caring for Nature
The STIHL Inc. “Caring for Nature” seal identifies its powered products that are more environmentally conscious, producing zero or low exhaust emissions. STIHL Inc. defines “low exhaust emissions” as being cleaner than EPA and/or CARB exhaust emission standards.
Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System
The fuel injection system makes starting easier and more reliable by eliminating the choke. Just set the switch to on, prime and pull.
Electronic Water Control (EWC)
Electronic Water Control allows the operator to easily adjust the flow of water while cutting and stops the water flow when the machine is at idle.
X2 Air Filtration System
The X2 Air Filtration System revolutionizes the cut-off machine industry by allowing air filters to last up to a year, based on cutting conditions. Outside air enters the system in a swirling motion, removing 80% of dust particles. This pre-cleaned air is then routed through the primary and secondary air filters before being sent into the engine. The X2 Air Filtration System is virtually maintenance free and maintains an incredible 99.96% cleaning efficiency.
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.
The ElastoStart™ starter handle is a feature of STIHL. It is a starting grip with a built-in shock absorber that helps reduce the effort when pulling on the starter cord. The ElastoStart™ starter grip noticeably reduces the sudden peak forces (compression) normally felt during cranking. The forces which occur at the grip after the first compression stroke are smoothed out.
Semi-Automatic Belt Tensioning
With consistent, semi-automatic re-tensioning, this feature increases the service life of the belts and shaft bearings.
The ergonomic top-handle bar design provides an optimal comfortable grip in any working position.
The decompression valve reduces the compression in the combustion chamber during cranking and helps reduce the effort needed to pull the starter rope.

Any pro knows that water helps lubricate the cutting wheel and reduces dust when cutting concrete. But sometimes water isn’t available. When you need water for wet-cutting and a pressurized water source is not available, the pressurized water tank is a must. This tank holds 2.6 gallons of water, and is extremely easy to pressurize with the hand pump and footplate. A built-in pressure gauge helps you keep the right pressure to keep the water flowing through the transparent hose. The translucent tank makes it easy to see when you need a refill.
Keep your cut-off machine accessories easily accessible, convenient and protected. The STIHL carrying case is made from heavy-duty metal and has special compartments to hold all STIHL Cutquik® cut-off machines, cutting wheels and accessories. The same case will also hold the MS 460 R STIHL Magnum® “Rescue” chain saw. The case has large handles for easy portability and features vented louvers.
Maintain control and consistency on difficult cuts with the TS Wheel Kit. The kit consists of two small wheels that mount directly to most STIHL Cutquik® cut-off machines. These wheels help with floor cutting when a full cart application isn’t warranted. Kit fits most STIHL cut-off machines including the TS 410, TS 420, TS 500i, TS 700 and TS 800.
