Stihl GS 461 (Stihl 2-MIX) 5.8hp petrol concrete chainsaw with 40cm bar.

Handles like a chainsaw, but with the power of a cut-off machine: the GS 461 concrete saw from STIHL. It’s ideal for cutting concrete, masonry, concrete pipes and ductile cast iron pipes. But what really makes it stand out from the crowd is its impressive cutting depth, great power-to-weight ratio and ability to cut precise corners. The guide bar perfectly matches the tool and features nozzles that point forward for effectively supplying the chain with water. And the special diamond saw chain transforms the engine power into superior cutting performance.

Product Details

Standard Features

STIHL 2-MIX Engine

The STIHL GS 461 features a modern, low-emission STIHL 2-MIX engine. Depending on how the machine is used, 2-MIX engines consume up to 20% less fuel compared to STIHL 2-stroke engines of the same performance class without 2-MIX technology. The 2-MIX engine also delivers great performance with high torque over a wide rpm range.

Decompression Valve

The decompression valve allows the starter rope of the machine to be pulled more easily, ensuring that the operator is able to start the machine comfortably.

36 GBM Diamond Saw Chain

Specially developed for the GS 461, with pre-sharpened diamond segments for wet stone cutting. The chain delivers top performance from the very first cut, for quickly and smoothly cutting concrete, hard stone, brick and ductile cast iron pipes.

Rollomatic G Guide Bar

This guide bar was designed especially for the GS 461 and features water channels. Even the sprocket nose is washed with water. The bar also has a hardened chain track and two additional holes for attaching the saw chain, which extend the tensioning range.

Water Connection

The water connection fitting is located on the tool and is raised slightly, making it easy to connect the tool to a water source. The water serves to suppress dust, as well as to cool, clean and lubricate the bar and chain.

Side Chain Tensioning

Allowing the chain and tension of the chain to be easily changed.

Sprocket Cover with Water Management

Water is fed through the sprocket onto the guide bar efficiently suppressing dust.

Rubber Guard

When cutting walls this large rubber guard protects the engine casing when the guide bar is fully inserted.

Anti-Vibration System

The STIHL anti-vibration system reduces the transmission of engine vibrations. This therefore reduces the strain on your back muscles.

Long-Life Air Filter System

The long-life air filter system with HD2 filter and additional filter catches even the finest particles and prevents dust from entering the tool. It protects the engine against wear, so that the tool requires only infrequent servicing.

The engine requires a mix of petrol and engine oil.  Simply mix a Stihl 50:1 two-stroke engine oil with unleaded (95 octane) petrol. The simplest method is using a standard 5 litre fuel canister and to add 0.1 litres (100 ml) of Stihl HP 2 stroke oil, close and thoroughly shake the canister and the mix is ready to use.

For this machine we recommend either Stihl HP or Stihl HP Ultra engine oil.
