Cut-off machine with expanded guard adjustment range and STIHL QuickStop™ cutting wheel brake technology which is capable of stopping the rotation of the cutting wheel in a fraction of a second if kickback occurs. For 350mm abrasive cutting wheels. This movable guard can be rotated, making it an efficient tool for cutting and undercutting pipes, and for use in areas that are difficult to access. Equipped with electronic water control, long-life filter system and economical 2-MIX engine.
STIHL QuickStop wheel brake
The TS 440 is designed to allow extended guard adjustability so that the cutting wheel is exposed at the top. This expanded guard adjustability is made possible by STIHL QuickStop wheel brake technology capable of stopping the rotation of the cutting wheel in fractions of a second if kickback occurs.
Two-stage belt drive
Thanks to a two-stage belt drive, the TS 440 is characterized by a high torque on the cutting wheel. It allows the users to apply higher feed force while reducing the chance of bogging the engine.
STIHL Electronic water control (A)
The electronic water control system can be operated via simple buttons while the engine is running. The water then switches on and off during cutting automatially, depending on engine speed. The water volume can be regulated by simply pressing the plus / minus buttons, ensuring optimum dust suppression at the touch of a button.
Reduced-emission engine technology
2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.
Pre-separation air filtration system
STIHL long-life air filtration systems with pre-separation achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional filter systems. Air drawn in is swirled. The larger, heavier particles are ejected. The pre-cleaned air is routed to the air filter via the pre-separator duct.
The cutting wheel guard made from die-cast magnesium is particularly light. The guard and water attachment feature a particularly ergonomic design.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
Manual fuel pump (Purger)
A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.
Ergonomic grip position
The modern, ergonomic design allows each user to work with an optimal grip position. The loop handle facilitates excellent cutting comfort in any working position.
