The STIHL MS 170 is a small chainsaw that packs a punch. It is perfect for cutting firewood and for general garden chainsaw tasks. Well suited to domestic users, the MS 170 chainsaw has been fitted with the STIHL anti-vibration system for comfortable use. The economical, compact and lightweight MS 170 is a small chainsaw, making it the perfect entry-level chainsaw. It also has a low emission, economical STIHL 2-MIX engine. Benefitting from a single-lever master control it is easy to operate. The automatic STIHL Ematic chain lubrication system allows optimum lubrication of the chain. Longer wear and less oil consumption is achieved when used with STIHL oilomatic saw chain.
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.
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.
Single-lever master control
All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.
Ematic chain lubrication system
The Ematic chain lubrication system ensures pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails. When used with STIHL OILOMATIC saw chain, it will provide maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication. The Ematic system can reduce bar oil consumption by up to 50%.
