MS 362 C-MQ

Professional chain saw with M-Tronic and QuickStop (Q) super chain brake

General

MS 362 C-MQ

The MS 362 C-M Q professional chain saw is now equipped with M-Tronic™ - STIHL's electronic engine management system for optimum engine power at all times. Equipped with stratified scavenging engine technology which reduces fuel consumption by up to 20% and fullfils all emission regulations, this unit features a new long-life air filtration system, an extremely smooth anti-vibration system, the STIHL Quickstop® super chain brake, which stops the chain in milliseconds upon release of the back handle, and an excellent power-to-weight ratio making this unit is a true professional chain saw.

Features

MS 362 C-MQ

Standard features

  • QuickStop<sup>®</sup> Super Chain Brake (Q) Zoom
    QuickStop® Super Chain Brake (Q)

    The QuickStop® Super chain brake is an additional braking system. The system is activated as soon as the operator's hand comes into contact with the rear handle.

  • STIHL M-Tronic (M) Zoom
    STIHL M-Tronic (M)

    Fully electronic controlled ignition timing and fuel metering system. The engine management STIHL M-Tronic (M) system ensures optimum engine performance, constant maximum speed and excellent acceleration. Manual carburetor adjustments are not necessary.

  • STIHL anti-vibration system Zoom
    STIHL anti-vibration system

    Precisely calculated buffer zones minimise the transfer of engine and saw chain vibrations to the front and rear handles. The chainsaw therefore runs noticeably smoother. This allows the user to save their strength and work longer.

  • Reduced-emission engine technology Zoom
    Reduced-emission engine technology

    2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

  • Advanced combustion technology Zoom
    Advanced combustion technology

    Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. The result is lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range.

  • Pre-separation air filtration system Zoom
    Pre-separation air filtration system

    STIHL long-life air filtration systems with pre-separation achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional filter systems. Air drawn in is swirled. The larger, heavier particles are ejected. The pre-cleaned air is routed to the air filter via the pre-separator duct.

  • STIHL ElastoStart Zoom
    STIHL ElastoStart

    Due to compression pressure, jerky stresses occur when starting internal combustion engines. The damping element in the ElastoStart special starter grip alternately absorbs and releases force according to the compression pattern. The result is smooth, even starting.

  • Tool free fuel caps Zoom
    Tool free fuel caps

    Special caps to open and close the tank cap quickly, easily and without tools.

  • Decompression valve Zoom
    Decompression valve

    The decompression valve is part of the easy starting system. The valve should be pressed before starting to reduce the compression pressure when starting, as well as the effort needed to pull the starter rope. The decompression valve is semi-automatic; it must be pressed manually before starting, but then closes automatically.

  • Compensator Zoom
    Compensator

    This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.

  • STIHL Ematic System Zoom
    STIHL Ematic System

    Compared to conventional bars without Ematic, the STIHL Ematic system reduces the consumption of chain lubricant by up to 50 %, depending on the type of wood and the cutting attachment used. This system comprises a STIHL Ematic or Ematic S guide bar, a STIHL Oilomatic saw chain and a variable-flow or reduced-flow oil pump. As a result, virtually every drop of chain lubricant is delivered to exactly the right spot.

  • Side-mounted chain tensioning Zoom
    Side-mounted chain tensioning

    The tensioning screw can be found on the side of chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.

  • Controlled-delivery oil pump Zoom
    Controlled-delivery oil pump

    The exact chain oil output can be adjusted manually for varying conditions, allowing for a reduction of up to 50%.
