MS 162 petrol chainsaw: Entry-level model for a wide range of tasks

The STIHL MS 162 petrol chainsaw is a reliable entry-level power tool for private grounds maintenance. Whether you want to saw firewood or prune fruit trees, the STIHL MS 162 is a lightweight and robust chainsaw which is suitable for occasional use in a very wide range of applications. It is even possible to fell smaller trees with this dependable chainsaw.

The high-performance STIHL 2-MIX engine is part of the optimally tuned overall system of the STIHL MS 162. It ensures good cutting performance with low fuel consumption. It also means you can reliably achieve precise cuts, with the help of the standard-fitted 3/8” P saw chain with its narrow kerf. Your chainsaw runs smoothly and quietly: the STIHL anti-vibration system reduces the transfer of vibrations to the handle, thereby taking pressure off your muscles and joints.

An especially convenient feature: the single-lever operation enables you to control all functions such as start, operation and stop with just one hand. What’s more, the tool can be effortlessly restarted after a break because the combi-lever with stop function automatically springs back into the operating position. Another comfort feature is the safe and easy tensioning of the chain, particularly facilitated by the side-mounted chain tensioning.

If you also want to buy the appropriate basic personal protective equipment with this chainsaw straight away, the optionally available STIHL FUNCTION Kit MS is the ideal choice. This can be conveniently used by multiple people, as all components are suited to different body sizes and can also be quickly put on and removed.
