The perfect saw for all-round garden tasks.
If you're looking for a chainsaw with STIHL's trademark quality that can cut firewood, help with building work, and fell small trees, the MS 181 has got you covered.
Packed with technology
This machine has several innovative features, as you would expect from a STIHL tool, to make your garden jobs easier. For example, their 2-MIX engine system uses 1-in-4 channel technology and provides high torque over a wide speed range. You can expect fuel savings of up to 20 percent compared to STIHL's regular 2-stroke engines, and exhaust emissions reduced by up to half. The Ematic chain lubrication system helps to ensure pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails, reducing bar oil consumption by up to 50 percent and resulting in longer wear with maximum lubrication.
Easy to handle and use
Weighing just 4.3 kg (excluding fuel, bar and chain), the MS 181 is comfortable to handle. Anti-vibration technology works to reduce vibrations at the unit's handles, which makes it easier to control and reduces fatigue from extended periods of operation. The oil and fuel tanks have simple tool-less filler caps, which takes the hassle out of filling up and reduces the chance of spillages, while all the important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are conveniently located on a single lever.
Advanced combustion technology swirls the fuel-air mix before ignition, providing optimal combustion, efficient performance, lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range. A compensator in the carburettor keeps the engine power constant by maintaining the fuel/air ratio as the air filter becomes clogged. This also means you don't need to clean the air filter until a noticeable drop in power occurs. With a choice of 12 inch / 30 cm, 14 inch / 35 cm and 16 inch / 40 cm bar lengths available, you can get exactly the right specification for your needs.
