MS 171 petrol chainsaw: for cutting firewood and grounds maintenance

Standard features

Advanced combustion technology

Advanced combustion technology

Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. The result is lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range.

Compensator

Compensator

This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture 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 air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn’t need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.

STIHL anti-vibration system

STIHL anti-vibration system

Precisely calculated buffer zones minimise the transfer of engine and saw chain vibrations to the front and rear handles. The chainsaw therefore runs noticeably smoother. This allows the user to save their strength and work longer.

Single-lever master control

Single-lever master control

All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.

Side-mounted chain tensioning
