An entry-level chainsaw from STIHL

The MS 171 is a chainsaw is a chainsaw suited to garden maintenance and cutting firewood. It is ideal for first-time domestic users and boasts more power than the MS 170; a STIHL 2-MIX 31.8 cm3 petrol engine provides 1.3 kW power to the chainsaw. The MS 171 can be purchased with a recommended 14 inch / 35 cm bar and chain, or with a 12 inch / 30 cm bar and chain;  this model uses a 3/8 inch Pico Micro Mini 3 chain.

It boasts numerous features to increase operator comfort

Perhaps most importantly, it has anti-vibration technology that dampens the engines oscillations to significantly reduce vibrations at the units handles. With single-lever master control, where all the important functions like start, choke, throttle and stop are positioned together on a single lever, using the machine is also extremely simple. A side chain tensioner removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain, and tool-free filler caps on the fuel and oil tanks mean you can rely on easy opening and locking without the need for tools.

Designed to be robust and long-lasting

Thanks to the Ematic chain lubrication system that this saw relies on, pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails is ensured; this means longer wear and up to 50% less bar oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication. This machine also benefits from a long-life air filtration system, which achieves perceptibly longer filter life compared to conventional systems.

Powerful performance

Advanced combustion technology swirls the fuel-air mix before ignition, achieving optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. This results in lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range. A compensator in the carburettor works to keep the fuel/air ratio constant, which in turn maintains the engine power so that the air filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs. 

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.

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