Product Description

The STIHL MS 271 petrol chainsaw is a high performance, mid-range option for agricultural and horticultural use. It is perfect for any demanding farmer, gardener, or landscaper and excels in harvesting firewood and landscaping tasks.

It features a Light 04 guide bar as well as the new .325” RM3 Pro saw chain, which delivers up to 20% more cutting performance than its predecessor, resulting in a cleaner and easier cutting experience.

The engine in this chainsaw is an economical STIHL 2-Mix engine that boasts impressive torque over a wide speed range while reducing fuel consumption and lowering exhaust emissions by up to 50%.

Maintenance is also very simple with the side chain tensioner, the easy-to-clean long-life HD2 filter, the tool-free filler caps, and the ematic chain lubrication system.

STIHL make some of the most reliable and innovative chainsaws on the market. That’s why this MS 271 features:

  • High performance .325” saw chain
  • An economical and low-emission STIHL 2-MIX engine
  • Single-level master control (start, choke, throttle, and stop)
  • Side chain tensioner (removes need to come into contact with the chain)
  • Compensator (constant engine power)
  • Anti-vibration system (improved comfort and reduced injury risk)
  • Pre-separation air filtration system (longer filter life)
  • HD2 filter (traps very fine dust and is easy to clean)
  • Advanced combustion technology (higher torque and lower fuel consumption)
  • Ematic chain lubrication system (lowers oil consumption by up to 50%)
  • Tool-free filler caps
  • Electronic cold and warm start recognition
  • Carburettor heating (for winter conditions)

Pre-separation air filtration system

STIHL long-life air filtration systems with pre- separation achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional filter systems. Air drawn in is swirled. The larger, heavier particles are ejected. The pre-cleaned air is routed to the air filter via the pre-separator duct.

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.

Features in depth

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 broad rpm range.

Side chain tensioner

You can tension the chain quickly with the easily accessible chain tensioner on the side of the machine.

Carburettor heating (V)

By changing the chain saw from summer to winter operation, the intake air is pre-heated over the engine fins. This ensures that the carburettor does not ice up and you can continue working in freezing temperatures.

Tool free filler cap

Patented special filler caps for fuel and oil. These filler caps can be opened and closed again quickly and easily, without tools.

Combi lever

As M-Tronic has electronic cold and warm start recognition, only one start position is needed on the combi lever. The exact amount of fuel is supplied on demand. You do not need to know about the status of your chainsaw and can apply full throttle straight away - even with a cold start. Because the saw is warmed up by optimum acceleration in a few seconds.

Single-lever master control

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