STIHL chainsaw with the M-Tronic engine management system

What is the STIHL M-Tronic engine management system?

The STIHL M-Tronic engine management system monitors and compensates for changes in work conditions, providing professionals with optimum performance. The onboard microprocessor automatically picks up changes in elevation, temperature, octane levels, fuel quality, and air filters, maximizing performance without any manual adjustments from the operator. The M-Tronic system can be found on select STIHL chainsaws and brushcutters.

Advantages of STIHL M-Tronic

  • Easier starting: There is only one starting position on thanks to the simplified warm start procedure.
  • Automatic carburetor settings: The M-Tronic system saves time and money by electronically adjusting the fuel/air mixture in the carburetor.
  • Quick acceleration: Electronic ignition timing and fuel metering allows you to accelerate quickly, even after a cold start.
  • Continuous engine performance: M-Tronic maximizes engine performance by monitoring operator conditions and metering fuel based on engine speed.
