MS 171

A lightweight, fuel-efficient chainsaw with reduced-emission engine technology.

The STIHL MS 171 is part of a new generation of lightweight STIHL chainsaws with reduced emission technology – a significant benefit for users because it saves fuel even as it cuts exhaust emissions. The MS 171 also has the STIHL pre-separation air filter, which can extend filter life up to five times over previous models.

More Information

Anti-Vibration System 

STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.

Side-Access Chain Tensioner  

The side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw.

Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers 

Simply lift the lever and twist the caps to remove or tighten. There‘s no need to use a tool to tighten or loosen.

Translucent Fuel Tank

Allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work.

Ematic™ Lubrication System 

The Ematic™ guide bar, when used with STIHL OILOMATIC® saw chain, will provide proper lubrication and less oil consumption than conventional methods. The system works because two ramps, strategically placed in the guide bar rail, help contain the flow of oil and direct all lubrication to the sliding faces of the bar and chain links as well as the rivets and driver holes, which in turn can reduce bar oil consumption up to 50%.
