A top-range saw ideal for property maintenance.
STIHL's MS 251 is the perfect saw for a variety of applications, whether you are cutting firewood, or using it in timber construction. It is available with an 18 inch (45 cm) or 16 inch (40 cm) bar length.
A comfortable saw to use
With STIHL's anti-vibration technology on board, the engine's oscillations in this machine are dampened, significantly reducing vibrations at the handles. All important operating functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop, are all helpfully located on a single lever, reducing fatigue and making the machine easier to use.
Sensible, labour-saving features
The MS 251 comes with special catches on the fuel and oil tanks, which allow for easy opening and locking of the tanks without the need for tools. The chain tensioner is located on the side of the machine, through the sprocket cover. This means you don't need to touch the sharp saw chain to access it.
Durable, powerful & efficient
A long-life air filter system with pre-separation achieves perceptibly longer filter life compared to conventional filter systems, with larger, heavier particles ejected. A compensator in the carburettor means that even as the air filter becomes clogged, you won't instantly lose performance, as it keeps the air/fuel ratio and engine power constant. This model also uses the Ematic chain lubrication system, to provide maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption. STIHL's 2-MIX engine that powers the machine cuts emissions and fuel consumption compared to non-2-MIX machines.
