Stihl TS 500i Cut-Off Machine
A cut-off machine with the world’s first electronically controlled fuel-injection system that increases power, not weight when operating 14” wheels.
Product Code: TS 500i

STIHL offers another industry first with the TS 500i STIHL Cutquik® cut-off machine. Featuring the handheld outdoor power equipment industry’s first electronically controlled fuel-injection system, the TS 500i increases power by 17% and cutting speed by 15%, as compared to the STIHL TS 420.

Powerful, lightweight and well-balanced, the STIHL TS 500i is designed for superior handling during the toughest jobs. The low-emission 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 cutting. The X2 air filtration system is virtually maintenance-free and maintains an incredible 99.96% cleaning efficiency.


Features:

  • 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.


    Decompression Valve 
    The decompression valve reduces the compression in the combustion chamber during cranking and helps reduce the effort needed to pull the starter rope.

  • 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.
  • Semi-Automatic Belt Tensioning

    With consistent, semi-automatic re-tensioning, this feature increases the service life of the belts and shaft bearings.
  • 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.
  • Anti-Vibration System 
    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.
  • STIHL ElastoStart™ 
    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.
  • Ergonomic Grip 
    The ergonomic top-handle bar design provides an optimal comfortable grip in any working position.
