EU Regulation 2016/1628 EURO V, which came into force in September 2016, sets out new emissions limits for combustion engines (petrol and diesel engines) in non-road mobile machines and devices. The new emissions limits come into force for all STIHL products on January 1, 2019.
Many STIHL products already fulfil the new emissions limits today.
The "2016/1628" reference in the type-approval number on your product will indicate whether your STIHL product fulfils the new emissions limits in accordance with EURO V.
In addition, at the latest from January 1, 2019, you will find a CO2 value in accordance with EURO V in the "Products" category of the respective product-specific technical data for your product.
This CO2 measurement results from testing a (parent) engine representative of the engine type (engine family) over a fixed test cycle under laboratory conditions and shall not imply or express any guarantee of the performance of a particular engine.
