MS 271 petrol chainsaw: Versatile and effective, for tradespeople and landowners alike

The STIHL MS 271 petrol chainsaw is equipped with a 2.6 kW (3.5 hp) STIHL 2-MIX engine. In combination with the .325" RM Pro saw chain, this offers you very good cutting performance. The power tool’s effectiveness is also supported by the STIHL Light 04 guide bar, as its lightweight design maximises weight savings. The single-lever operation also makes your work easier,as all essential functions can be accessed with the right hand so this can always remain on the handle. In order to be able to work for as long as possible without interruption, we have equipped the chainsaw with a pre-separation routing system. This prevents larger dirt particles from even reaching the filter in the first place, meaning that you need to clean it less frequently. If you also retrofit this chainsaw with an HD2 air filter, you can enjoy the advantages of a long-life air filter system as well. The STIHL Ematic system ensures optimal lubrication by delivering chain oil where it is needed in a targeted and economical manner.

This model is ideal for cutting firewoodand also for building with wood. The MS 271 chainsaw is also great for landscape maintenance, enabling you to carry out tasks efficiently.
