STIHL's best-selling entry level saw

The MS 170 is a chainsaw suitable for cutting firewood and garden maintenance; it is aimed at domestic users looking for their first STIHL chainsaw. A STIHL 2-MIX 30.1 cmpetrol engine provides 1.2 kW power to the chainsaw, which comes complete with a 12 inch / 30 cm bar and chain; this model uses a 3/8 inch Pico Micro Mini 3 chain.

Easy to use controls make it ideal for first-time users

The necessary operating controls including start, choke, throttle and stop are controlled using a single lever, making it easier to handle and reducing fatigue whilst using the machine. This model also has anti-vibration technology built in, which dampens the oscillations from the engine to significantly reduce vibrations at the handles for operator comfort.

Excellent performance that reduces maintenance

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, 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, reducing bar oil consumption by up to 50%.

Chainsaw assembly

All chainsaws come as standard with some assembly required. However, you may purchase chainsaw assembly and we will fit the bar and chain prior to dispatch, so that when it arrives you're ready to go. Don't forget to check out the YouTube video links in our technical spec for useful how-to videos.


A 2 year domestic warranty with STIHL is included, we will register the machine. T&Cs apply.

Always wanted a top of the range Stihl chainsaw having owned many other makes in the past purchased guided by price on a budget. None of them have lasted long without “ bits “ falling off or breaking over time and so not impressing me with any satisfaction apart from only wasting the money spent on the cheap.
This is different mustard and is very well manufactured, excellent in operation and a joy to use around the garden and for preparing firewood
