The reliable STIGA SP 526 petrol chainsaw has a good weight-power ratio, with a 45 cm (18″) guide bar making it suitable for both domestic and forestry work. The 52 cc (2.5 kW) petrol engine is teamed with a magnesium engine cover which ensures robustness, reliability and quick cooling. The decompression valve allows easy starting, while the oil pump is automatic and adjustable. Maintenance operations can be performed quickly and easily thanks to a number of features; such as the tool-less handle on the air filter cover without the need for additional tools, the tensioning wrench located under the rear handle and the fuel tank level monitoring window. The ergonomic soft-touch handle and spring system ensures reduced vibrations and greater comfort.
