A comfortable 2.0 kW petrol chainsaw.
STIHL's ErgoStart and Quick Chain Tensioning technology makes this saw extremely user-friendly. With a choice of 14 inch / 35 cm or 16 inch / 40 cm bar lengths.
Premium features as standard with this model
Thanks to the ErgoStart system, the MS 231 C-BE is wonderfully easy to start. This technology cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord needs just a third of the force to pull it - two fingers and a gentle pull is all it takes. The Chain Quick Tensioning system is equally useful, allowing you to adjust the chain using a thumb wheel without the need for tools.
A brilliantly simple saw to use
On top of the premium features above, the MS 231 C-BE also benefits from intelligent STIHL design, to make it easy to operate in other ways. Tool free filler caps use special catches on the fuel and oil tanks, which allow for easy opening and locking, helping to reduce spillages and the hassle of topping up. The machine's main operating controls are located on a single control lever, so you can easily access all the important settings in an instant. You will also appreciate the benefit of STIHL's anti-vibration technology, which dampens the engine's oscillations to significantly reduce vibrations at the handles.
Reliable power when you need it
This machine uses a long-life air filtration system with pre-separation to achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional systems. It also benefits from a compensator in the carburettor to prevent the fuel-air mixture from getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the filter, so the ratio is maintained as is the engine's power. The filter only needs to be cleaned once an appreciable drop in power occurs.
