The STIHL MS171 Petrol Chainsaw is great for day-to-day domestic applications, such as preparing firewood, felling small trees, and pruning perennials.

Its powerful 30.1cc stratified-charge engine is not only kind to the environment but also offers significantly reduced fuel consumption compared to conventional units in the same class. A pre-separation air filter provides comprehensive protection to key engine parts, thereby extending service life and ensuring optimum performance levels are maintained.

Designed to be safe in the hands of those who are not regular chainsaw users, the STIHL MS171 Petrol Chainsaw weighs just 4.3kg, and is equipped a highly effective anti-vibration system, so you’ll find it’s both comfortable and controllable.

Its optimised centre of gravity, ergonomic grip and sensible control positioning also contribute to operator comfort.

Other key features of this robust and user-friendly saw include a side chain tensioner, which means it is quick and easy to make the necessary adjustments, and ‘Ematic’ automatic chain oiling, which reduces wear and maximises performance by ensuring that a constant supply of lubricant is maintained.

The filler caps can be removed without tools.

This version of the STIHL MS171 comes with a 30cm guide bar.

Shipping Info

Shipping Info

If you’re buying a boxed product, we aim to get your order delivered next working day – UK mainland where possible.

If you’re buying a tractor or ride-on mower – a special order item – it could be slightly longer, as we need to PDI the machine.

We do try and van-deliver these machines if we can, as this gives us a chance to demonstrate the product, and to ensure you’re happy and confident with your purchase.

If we can’t van-deliver your machine, as you’re out of our local delivery area, the tractor will be sent on a pallet via a courage company. They will then contact you directly to book a specific day and time that suits you.
