Features

MS 291 C-BE

Standard features

  • Pre-separation air filtration system Zoom
    Pre-separation air filtration system

    The innovative long-life air filter system greatly extends the service life of the filter. Air routing removes larger particles of dirt, meaning the actual filter has less to do. So the saw can be used for longer without having to clean the filter.

  • Advanced combustion technology Zoom
    Advanced combustion technology

    Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. The result: lower consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range.

  • STIHL anti-vibration system Zoom
    STIHL anti-vibration system

    Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to longer-term effects of blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL have therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system where by the oscillations from the machines engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

  • Compensator Zoom
    Compensator

    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.

  • Manual fuel pump (Purger) Zoom
    Manual fuel pump (Purger)

    A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required from a cold start.

  • Single-lever master control Zoom
    Single-lever master control

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

  • STIHL Ematic-System Zoom
    STIHL Ematic-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 up to 50%.

  • Easy2Start Zoom
    Easy2Start

    Easy starting with less effort due to an additional spring between the crankshaft and the rope rotor. A smooth pull on the starter rope tensions the spring against the compression resistance of the engine. The jerks are not transmitted to the rope. The spring automatically transmits the stored energy to the crankshaft, causing it to turn and ensuring reliable starting of the engine.

Additional features

  • HD2-Filter Zoom
    HD2-Filter

    This air filter keeps even the finest dust away from the engine, ensuring a particularly long service life. Thanks to special material, the filter can be washed clean, for example with STIHL Variocleanand warm water.
