TS 420 STIHL Cutquik®

TS 420 STIHL Cutquik®
A 14” cutting wheel puts this cut-off machine in the big leagues of performance, efficiency and ease of use.

Model Features

  • Reduced-Emission Engine Technology - Caring for Nature
    The STIHL Inc. “Caring for Nature” seal identifies its powered products that are more environmentally conscious, producing zero or low exhaust emissions. STIHL Inc. defines “low exhaust emissions” as being cleaner than EPA and/or CARB exhaust emission standards.

    More information

  • X2 Air Filtration System
    The X2 Air Filtration System revolutionizes the cut-off machine industry by allowing air filters to last up to a year, based on cutting conditions. Outside air enters the system in a swirling motion, removing 80% of dust particles. This pre-cleaned air is then routed through the primary and secondary air filters before being sent into the engine. The X2 Air Filtration System is virtually maintenance free and maintains an incredible 99.96% cleaning efficiency.
  • Anti-Vibration System
    STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
  • Semi-Automatic Belt Tensioning
    With consistent, semi-automatic re-tensioning, this feature increases the service life of the belts and shaft bearings.
  • Ergonomic Grip
    The ergonomic top-handle bar design provides an optimal comfortable grip in any working position.
  • IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
    The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the air/fuel ratio when the air filter becomes restricted or partially clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM. IntelliCarb™ uses air from the clean side of the air filter to control the diaphragm and flow of fuel. As the air filter becomes dirty and less air is available for the carburetor, the IntelliCarb™ system adjusts the fuel flow to compensate for the decrease in air flow. This is in contrast to typical carburetors that utilize this air from the “dirty” side of the air box.

Reviews

TS 420 STIHL Cutquik® is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ruined a good saw I have used theTS420 saw for many years, with great success.Having just purchased another new one, I found that the cutting wheel wobbles at lower RPMs.It does not run true until high RPMs are reached.My older 420 saw runs true at any speed.I checked with other contractors and their experience is exactly the same.It is impossible to score a straight line without revving the saw to a high RPM first.My place of purchase checked it out and said to deal with it-it's just the way it is.I do not recommend purchasing this saw-I will look at the competitors' products for my next purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dependable Could use a little more torque. Seems to bog down too easy. Great saw for light duty

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Saw is great except one major flaw I am a 2nd Generation Masonry/Concrete Contractor. I currently own two of these Saws- Both are sitting on a shelf due to the muffler bolt issue. They are out of warranty and Stihl has no fix for the problem. Great saw otherwise, sucks they are unusable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate We own 6 stihl saws, the 420s have had more issues with dependability and mufflers,than the 700 series. I do not think we will purchase any more 420s in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More muffler problems Our company has 2 of these saws - the newer one does not have the compression release button so we thought there must be improvements made. One saw has the third new muffler and the other saw has had two. Loctite has not been the answer. They run and saw great when not broken

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-made, durable cut-off saw for contractors We buy Stihl products exclusively because we know they will last a long time, and are easily repaired. Our men are not that easy on these things, another reason we go for the durability of Stihl.

Optional Accessories

  • STIHL ElastoStart™
    The ElastoStart™ starter handle is a feature of STIHL. It is a starting grip with a built-in shock absorber that helps reduce the effort when pulling on the starter cord. The ElastoStart™ starter grip noticeably reduces the sudden peak forces (compression) normally felt during cranking. The forces which occur at the grip after the first compression stroke are smoothed out.
  • STIHL Cutquik® Cart
    Ideal for long, precise cuts, this cart offers improved handling and cutting performance with a forward weight orientation and a toolless quick connect system.
