The perfect mid-range saw for demanding farmers, gardeners or landscapers.
This is a versatile and durable high performance saw, available with a choice between a 16 inch (40 cm) bar length and an 18 inch (45 cm) bar length.
Powerful & intelligent design
The MS 271 is powered by STIHL's efficient 2-MIX engine technology, which provides up to 20 percent less fuel consumption and up to 50% reduced emissions. With advanced combustion technology, highly efficient performance is available. A compensator in the carburettor is also on hand to keep the fuel/air ratio and engine power constant, even as the air filter becomes clogged, so you have power in this machine that you can really rely on.
Anti-vibration technology significantly reduces vibrations at the unit's handle by dampening the engine's oscillations. This is ideal for professionals working with the tool for longer periods, as it helps reduce fatigue. All of the important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever, increasing ease of use and again making the machine more comfortable to operate, while tool-free filler caps take the hassle out of topping up your saw.
Durable & robust
With the Ematic chain lubrication system, pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails is ensured. It provides maximum lubrication, longer wear and up to 50 percent reduced bar oil consumption. The air filtration system uses pre-separation to achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional filter systems. Larger, heavier particles are ejected before they reach the filter.
