Product Description

The MS 170 is STIHL’s entry level petrol chainsaw and is perfect for cutting firewood and light garden maintenance. It is extremely easy to operate and as a result is very popular with homeowners that are new to STIHL chainsaws.

As it is an entry-level model, it boasts a compact and lightweight design, making it exceedingly easy to handle. Despite its size, it still packs a decent punch with its high-quality STIHL bar and chain.

All essential operating controls (start, throttle, choke, and stop) can be adjusted by a single lever, improving user comfort and enhancing productivity.

Vibration is also not an issue with this machine due to STIHL’s anti-vibration technology, which dampens the oscillations produced during work to significantly reduce vibrations at the handles.

Moreover, the STIHL 2-MIX engine generates low emissions and is very economical.

STIHL chainsaws are constructed to high standards, optimising them for their purpose. That’s why this MS 170 entry level petrol chainsaw features:

  • A compact and lightweight design (easy handling)
  • Single-level master control (start, choke, throttle, and stop)
  • An economical STIHL 2-MIX engine
  • Anti-vibration system
  • Compensator (constant engine power)
  • Ematic chain lubrication system (lowers oil consumption by up to 50%)

Stihl 2-mix engine

The Stihl 2-mix engine specially desgined for the new generation of hedge trimmer combines low consumption and emissions with low weight and excellent acceleration. There are also always sufficient power reserves for cutting thicker shrubs.

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.

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.
