Just set the switch to on, prime, and pull.

Key Features

Electronically Controlled Fuel-Injection System: At the heart of the TS 500i lies its most innovative feature – the electronically controlled fuel-injection system. This technology optimizes fuel delivery to the engine in real-time, ensuring a precise air-fuel mixture for maximum power and efficiency. This not only results in improved performance but also enhances fuel economy, making the TS 500i a more sustainable and cost-effective choice.

Powerful 72.2 cc Engine: The TS 500i is equipped with a robust 72.2 cc engine, delivering exceptional power for demanding cutting tasks. Whether you're working on construction sites, in forestry, or engaged in any other professional cutting application, the TS 500i is up to the challenge.

Reduced Emissions: Stihl is committed to environmental sustainability, and the TS 500i reflects this commitment. The electronically controlled fuel injection not only optimizes power but also minimizes emissions. With lower exhaust emissions, users can operate the saw in a more eco-friendly manner without compromising performance.

Easy Start System: Starting the TS 500i is a breeze, thanks to its innovative Easy Start system. The saw features an electronically controlled starting mechanism that reduces the effort required to start the engine. This feature is a game-changer for professionals who need a reliable and quick-starting tool on the job.


Improved Efficiency: The electronically controlled fuel-injection system ensures that the engine is consistently fed with the right amount of fuel, optimizing combustion. This results in improved overall efficiency, allowing professionals to complete their cutting tasks faster and with greater precision.

Enhanced User Comfort: The TS 500i is designed with user comfort in mind. With the Easy Start system and reduced vibration levels, operators can work for longer periods without experiencing fatigue. The saw's ergonomic design and well-balanced construction further contribute to a comfortable user experience.

Cost-Effective Operation: The fuel efficiency of the TS 500i, combined with reduced maintenance costs resulting from the electronically controlled fuel injection, makes it a cost-effective choice for professionals. The initial investment is quickly offset by long-term savings in fuel and maintenance expenses.
