It is possible to get a Saturday delivery on some products, however the price and availability of this service is completely dependent on the brand of items on the order & the overall weight of the order - for a Saturday delivery please contact us.
Most of our parcels are dispatched via DPD. On the day of dispatch you will receive a text / email with the approximate time your parcel will be delivered (normally an hours delivery window is given). Please note however, it is your responsibility to ensure you are available when the courier attempts delivery as not all courier firms have the facility to call ahead. If the time given is unsuitable it is highly recommended that you rearrange delivery of your parcel by replying directly to DPD via the text / email or you can request your parcel is left in a safe place or with a neighbour. We also use other courier services including Royal Mail where sometimes tracking information is not available.
If you wish to track your DPD parcel please click here. You can also contact DPD customer services on 0121 275 0500.
Smaller lightweight parcels are generally dispatched via Royal Mail with larger bulkier parcels being dispatched via DPD which require a signature on delivery. A calling card will be left with instructions if you are out.
Please note all delivery times are approximate, occasionally, delivery periods may be extended for reasons beyond our control and we apologise for this in advance. If you require a delivery urgently by a certain date please contact our sales team quoting item description & product code.
For multiple product orders where different delivery times are shown, please go by the product showing the longest delivery time. If you would like partial (split) delivery please contact our sales team who will assist with your request.
Deliveries into Europe & Overseas
Placing online orders for delivery into the EU, including ROI and also Northern Ireland has currently been suspended.
Due to the current backlog at UK ports, and the closure of some ports and borders into Europe, we have taken the difficult decision to make this unavailable for a period of time.
We would not like to offer customers a service that we are not able to rely on.
We will look to make this available again as soon as possible, however, there are new requirements that will be in place for products leaving the UK into Europe after Brexit on 1st January 2021. Once the delivery situation is more stable, we will implement the required data in order to provide a reliable delivery service into Europe and Northern Ireland.
If you require delivery to the EU or Northern Ireland, please use the form on our Delivery Information page to contact us and we will do our best to offer a delivery quotation.
Choice Of Different Bar Lengths
Side Chain Tensioner
The MS 462 C-M forestry chainsaw is the lightest high-performance saw in its class. With impressive acceleration, you can rely on this forestry chainsaw to deliver the results you need when felling and pruning medium to large trees. The economical STIHL 2-MIX engine, coupled with M-Tronic technology, delivers an efficient performance without compromising on the power you need in a forestry chainsaw. The MS 462 C-M has a STIHL anti-vibration system so you can comfortably use the saw for extended periods of time. In addition, the new design means that it is easier to manoeuvre and, with less gyroscopic force on acceleration, it is also easier to stay in full control of the saw at all times. For everyday maintenance, the long-life HD2 filter features an oil and water repellent surface and can be easily cleaned, whilst the captive nuts on the sprocket cover make it easier for regular bar and chain maintenance. At STIHL, we understand that everyone’s needs are different and one bar length doesn’t fit all so the MS 462 C-M forestry chainsaw is available in multiple different bar lengths. Supplied with rollomatic E guide bar, not rollomatic ES light as pictured.
Stihl M-Tronic (T)
This fully electronic engine management system adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating modes. It also takes external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality into account. It ensures consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. M-Tronic makes manual carburettor adjustments unnecessary. Thanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition, now there is only one start position on the combi-lever. The engine starts after fewer pulls and with no change of position, and can immediately accelerate up to speed - even after a cold start. M-Tronic also remembers the settings from the last time the tool was used. So when external conditions are the same, optimal engine performance is available every time you start up again.
Stihl 2-Mix Engine
1-in-4 channel technology. The economical STIHL 2-MIX engine with 1-in-4channel technology features a high torque over a wide speed range. The chainsaw provides fuel savings of up to 20% compared to STIHL two-stroke engines in the same performance class without 2-MIX technology. Exhaust emissions are reduced by up to 50%.
HD2 Filter With Radioal Seal
The new HD2 air filter, made from PET material and featuring a radial seal, prevents the intake of fine dust particles. The hermetic seal increases the service life of the engine and reduces wear.
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 reducing 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.
Side Chain Tensioner
The tensioning screw can be found on the side of the chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.
Marking has been added to the fan housing to assist with plunge cuts. This ensures better directional control and safe use of the machine during plunge cutting.
Optimised Bumper Spikes
The tooth length of the bumper spikes has been adjusted to account for the radial contours of trees. The saw bites into wood even better when cutting lengths and felling.
Tool Free Filler Caps
Special catches on the fuel and oil tanks for easy opening and locking without the need for tools.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
Stop Button Function
After the machine is turned off, the control lever immediately moves back into the operating position. This allows a warm machine to be restarted again immediately.
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.
When changing the cutting attachment, you will not risk losing the nuts on the sprocket. A great advantage for all users.
Optimised Sprocket Cover
The flatter, narrower sprocket cover with integrated slide rails reduces effort when pruning and ensures outstanding chip removal.
Low Power To Weight Ratio
The STIHL MS 462 C-M is the lightest professional chainsaw in its cubic capacity class. Special components, such as the cylinder with its angled cooling ribs, the compact sprocket cover, the light crankcase, the weight-optimised flywheel and the Rollomatic ES Light rail ensure that the machine is noticeably lighter.
Stihl Ematic With New Oil Pump System
The new oil pump system allows a higher volume of oil to be delivered. This is especially useful in dusty conditions or when using a long guide bar.
User-Friendly Calibration Function
The calibration of the STIHL M-Tronic system has been optimised further. There is no need for any manual corrections, even in specialised areas of application, e.g. in high mountain ranges. Calibration is completed within approx. 72 seconds after the machine is started.
