Is it possible to overcharge the Stihl Li-ion battery?

Lots of Stihl products are available with battery transmission, including lawn mowers and hedge trimmers.

Battery powered machinery has come a long way, and can now stand up to petrol transmission. With that said, the battery does need to be properly cared for. One thing that’s important is to charge the battery itself correctly, including not overcharging it.

Can I adjust the carburetor on my chainsaw?

The settings of the carburetor are important for the operating of the machine. These settings impact the mixture of air and fuel in the engine – the wrong settings will therefore impact the running.

You can find the carburetor settings in your model’s instruction manual, and can adjust them at home. However, if you are not confident doing so, we suggest taking your chainsaw to an approved service provider.
