TS 500i STIHL Cutquik®
A cut-off machine with the world’s first electronically controlled fuel-injection system that increases power, not weight when operating 14” wheels.

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

  • Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System
    The fuel injection system makes starting easier and more reliable by eliminating the choke. Just set the switch to on, prime and pull.
  • Electronic Water Control (EWC)
    Electronic Water Control allows the operator to easily adjust the flow of water while cutting and stops the water flow when the machine is at idle.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Decompression Valve
    The decompression valve reduces the compression in the combustion chamber during cranking and helps reduce the effort needed to pull the starter rope.

Reviews

TS 500i STIHL Cutquik® is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saw was very stable while running. Smooth running motor allowed for nice smooth cuts. No problem with power at all. Starts right up. Wasn't sure I would like that water feature, but not having that dust bowl was really nice. Nice power, nice control and smooth running. That diamond blade was the perfect match! Nice product so far!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use only quality fuel I am extremely happy with my Stihl TS500i. I replaced my older Stihl carbureted chain saws with the M-tronic fuel management system and could not be happier with the ease of starting and overall performance. I recently decided to replace an older cutoff saw hoping for the same dependability when starting and great performance regardless of the weather. I was not disappointed. This TS500i starts first pull once warmed up and runs perfectly. When the engine is cold, it takes 1 to 4 pulls to start. Good quality gasoline is the key to Stihls new fuel system. I understand the manual says use less than 10% ethanol. Do yourself a favor and buy gasoline without any ethanol or better yet, use racing fuel, aviation fuel or Stihl fuel. All the additives in today's gasoline gums up fuel systems leading to hard starting and poor performance. It's not the saws fault, it's just bad gas.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok Machine but you have to be super careful. We had the trusty 900 model for years, we are plumbers and drainlayers so we use it a fair bit, often in mud and bad conditions.This machine does not like that.I like many things about this machine, the lightness, the noise reductions, the soft start, vibration control, lots of power.NO choke.What I hate about this machine is the absolute preciseness that you must keep your fuel no older than 4 weeks.You must have an absolute chemistry like nature to make sure the 2 stroke and petrol ratio is within as close as a tolerance as you can.If you are the boss and you know this then ok, I have about 20 staff and not all of them care, if the mixture is wrong it wont run in full power.Water ingress.Dont ask me how but we have had trouble with water getting into the machine, it just doesnt like sitting in the rain and falling over in mud and getting generally dirty and wet.We should look after it better I know, yet the old model we punished and we never had these problems of starting it, drying it, new fuel.I would not recommend buying the fuel injection yet, it is the future but not now, this model just has too many teething problems for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORKHORSE I had purchased this saw one year ago. I was concerned after seeing a few bad reviews but with my experience with this saw has been great. Im a masonry contractor and the only issue I have had was the string breaking and the bracket for the water hookup breaking, This thing starts easy,runs strong and cuts great.STONE ,BRICK ,BLOCK and CONCRETE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Landscaper's best friend I own a landscaping company and we mostly do pavers and slabs patio, walkway and driveway. Some days the saw run 10 hours and we never had any problem except a water connector that broke. Other than that the TS 500 i start like a charm. It is a lightweight saw for the power it produce. Any dummy can do the maintenance on this saw. Thank you Stihl for this quality product !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Saw ever I use to love the TS400s but since I've purchased this 500 I will not even bother trying to fix the 400s. It is a completely dependable saw, way better then the TS420s, which I bought and did not like, they felt weak. But this TS500i hasn't given me any trouble, it starts up right away and has a whole lot more power. Can't say it enough, Great saw Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best saws on the market I have had this saw for a year now. This saw is great my guys love it because it is easy to start and it can still run if your cutting above your head (like a masonry cut out for windows etc).I have hear every complain from my guys about any of my equipment but with this saw they love it. I hear no whiny from them about this saw.I also have Hilti saws and also a stihl 420 they won't even use it now I am trying to sell them so I can buy another 500i. Just make sure you keep the fuel clean if not it could get stuck in the injector but that has never happen to me yet and we use the saw almost every day. I you look at a new saw buy the 500i I can see all small engines going to injectors in the future
