The STIHL MS181 Petrol Chainsaw has been designed for day-to-day domestic and horticultural tasks, such as chopping firewood, pruning shrubs and limbing/felling small trees.

Its powerful and reliable 31.8cc (2hp) STIHL 2-MIX engine employs STIHL’s emission reducing stratified-charge technology, so it’s not only kinder to the environment, but it also burns significantly less fuel when set against less advanced power packs in the same class.

A pre-separation air filtration system ensures that only clean air enters the carburettor, greatly extending the useful life of the engine; a carburettor compensator ensures the optimum fuel-air mixture is consistently maintained under all conditions.

Some chainsaws can be unwieldy and difficult to handle. This is not the case with the STIHL MS181 – its lightweight design (only 4.3kg), anti-vibration system and ergonomic grip all combine to ensure it’s comfortable, safe and easy to control.

Other high-quality features include ‘Ematic’ automatic chain oiling, which reduces wear and maximises performance by ensuring that a constant supply of lubricant is maintained; and a side chain-tensioner, which makes it quick and easy to make the necessary adjustments to the chain.

Removal of the filler caps is tool-free.

This version of the MS181 comes with a compact and easily manageable 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.
