Stihl MS170 30.1cc Petrol Chain Saw 12" / 300mm

The best-selling entry level chain saw from STIHL. Handy introductory chain saw for thinning out wood, sawing firewood and for felling small trees up to approx. 30cm in diameter. Light and easy to handle. Convenient single lever master control. Available with 12"/30cm guide bar.

Anti-Vibration System
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

Catalytic Converter
Considerably reduces the quantity of harmful particles in the exhaust gas.

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.

Ematic Chain Lubrication System
The Ematic chain lubrication system ensures pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails. When used with STIHL OILOMATIC saw chain, it will provide maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication. The Ematic system can reduce bar oil consumption by up to 50%.

Single-Lever Master Control
All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.

great service and chain saw
Great little chain saw well worth the money
Review by Mosser / (Posted on 09/04/2018)
The little big one
Good quality. Light and easy to use. Once primed starts generally on first pull. Chain sharp. But like all new chains you have to keep tightening when you first start to use. Recommend checking regularly during use. Remember too slacker chain off before you it will shrink back when it gets cold.

Questions about Stihl MS170 30.1cc Petrol Chain Saw 12" / 300mm

  • Sue asked on March 21st, 2016:

    Q: I am looking for a lightweight chainsaw easy to use for general use in garden pruning back hedges etc for use by lady and easy to start.

    Hi, This is a lightweight entry level chain saw. The MS181 C is the smallest with easy start if you would like this.. If you are able to, it may be worth visiting our store in Dudley, West Midlands as you can have a look at the range. Thanks
