The Stihl MS-171 Petrol Chainsaw is great for day-to-day domestic applications, such as preparing firewood, felling small trees, and pruning perennials.
Its powerful 30.1cc stratified-charge engine is not only kind to the environment, but also offers significantly reduced fuel-consumption compared to conventional units in the same class; while its pre-separation air-filter provides comprehensive protection to key engine parts, thereby extending service-life and ensuring optimum performance-levels are maintained.
Designed to be safe in the hands of those who are not regular chainsaw-users, the Stihl MS-171 weighs just 4.3kg and is equipped a highly-effective anti-vibration system, so you’ll find it’s comfortable and controllable. Its optimised centre-of-gravity, ergonomic grip and sensible control-positioning also contribute to operator comfort.
Other key features of this robust and user-friendly saw include a side chain-tensioner, which makes it quick and easy to make the necessary adjustments; and ‘Ematic’ automatic chain-oiling, which reduces wear and maximises performance by ensuring that a constant supply of lubricant is maintained. The filler-caps can be removed without tools.
