STIHL's best-selling entry level saw.

Ideal for cutting firewood, the MS 170 is aimed at users looking for their first STIHL chainsaw. This model has a 12 inch / 30 cm bar length.

Easy operation, ideal for users new to STIHL's saws

The important operating controls such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated using a single lever, reducing fatigue while using the machine and making it easier to handle in general. This model also has anti-vibration technology built in, which dampens the oscillations from the engine to significantly reduce vibrations at the handles.

Excellent performance

A compensator in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture from becoming richer as the air filter becomes clogged. It ensures the correct quantity of fuel is delivered depending on the quantity of air passing through the filter, keeping the fuel to air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and meaning the engine power is kept steady. The MS 170 also uses the Ematic chain lubrication system to ensure pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails.
