MS 172 petrol chainsaw: Compact and versatile

When it comes to cutting firewood or grounds maintenance, the compact STIHL MS 172 petrol chainsaw offers you flexibilty, whether you are a domestic user or in horticulture, landscaping or a tradesperson. You can even fell small trees with the MS 172.

The STIHL MS 172 petrol chainsaw impresses with its powerful STIHL 2-MIX engine, which is known for excellent cutting performance coupled with low fuel consumption. The standard STIHL 3/8'' P saw chain ensures precise cuts with its narrow kerf. Thanks to the STIHL anti-vibration system, you can work with the STIHL MS 172 chainsaw while protecting your muscles and joints. This means that your chainsaw runs smoothly and evenly.

The single-lever control is very convenient, enabling you to perform all functions with just one hand. If you take a break, the chainsaw is ready to use again immediately. The combi-lever with stop function automatically springs back into the operating position. Another advantage of using the MS 172 from STIHL: Side-mounted chain tensioning ensures safe and easy chain retensioning without any contact with the sharp chain or the tips of the claw stop.

The STIHL MS 172 also has a diagnostic socket for maintaining your petrol chainsaw. This will provide your local STIHL dealer with information about the machine design, service life and repair and maintenance instructions.
