The STIHL MS 171 is part of the lightweight generation of STIHL chainsaws with reduced emission technology – a significant benefit for users because it saves fuel as it cuts exhaust emissions. The MS 171 also has the STIHL pre-separation air filter, which can extend filter life up to five times over previous models. This chainsaw is ideal for non-commercial lightweight wood cutting purposes. The side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw. The translucent fuel tank allows the operator to easily check fuel level before starting work.
WARNING! Improper use of any power tool may cause serious or fatal injury. Read, understand and follow carefully the operating and safety instructions in your instruction manual before using such products.
The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw. STIHL uses a green and yellow color-coding system to help you select a powerhead, bar, and chain combination that complies with the kickback requirements of ANSI Standard B175.1 (gasoline-powered saws) and §30 of UL 1662/ ANSI Standard B175.1 (electric chainsaws). Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop chain brake, STIHL Quickstop Plus additional chain braking feature, STIHL reduced kickback bars, and STIHL low-kickback saw chains.
