Not only capable of felling smaller-diameter trees, the compact and easy-to-manage STIHL MS181 C-BE Petrol Chainsaw is also suitable for preparing firewood, cutting back shrubs and lopping branches.

Power for the STIHL MS181 C-BE Petrol Chainsaw is supplied by a medium-displacement 31.8cc (2hp) engine, which incorporates STIHL’s stratified-charge technology for a marked cut in both fuel costs and unpleasant exhaust emissions, and their ErgoStart system for smooth, low-effort pull starts.

A carburettor compensator works to maintain a consistent fuel/air mixture for peak performance at all times; an advanced pre-separation air filter provides optimum component protection, thereby maximising engine life.

Comfort and controllability are obviously important considerations when choosing a chainsaw. The STIHL MS181 C-BE Petrol Chainsaw scores highly on both aspects – it weighs just 4.6kg and has an ergonomic grip, which combines with its comprehensive vibration insulation and optimised centre of gravity to ensure it’s safe and easy to handle.

Other practical and convenient features include Ematic automatic chain lubrication, which maximises performance and reduces wear by maintaining a constant oil supply; and Chain Quick Tensioning for rapid no-tools adjustment while in the field. Tool-free filler caps also save time and effort.

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.
