14/12" Bar Supplied - 30cc - 1.6hp
Looking for a compact, lightweight chainsaw? Homeowners, look no further. Complete with many of the same design features the professionals depend on, the MS170 is lightweight with just the right amount of power — ideal for residential cutting and trimming of small trees, firewood.
This handy introductory chainsaw for thinning out wood, sawing firewood and for felling small trees up to 30cm in diameter. Light and easy to handle. Convenient single level master control. Catalytic convertor.
This controller in the carberettor 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 appropriate drop in power occurs.
STIHL 2-Mix Engine
The two-stroke engine with STIHL 2-MIX technology saves up to 20% of fuel and reduces emissions by up to 70% compared to STIHL 2-Stroke engines of the same performance class without 2-MIX technology.
STIHL anti-vibration system
Precisely calculated buffer zones minimise the transfer of the engine and saw chain vibrations to the front and rear handles. The chainsaw therefore runs noticeably smoother. This allows the users to save their strength and work longer.
STIHL Ematic System
Compared to conventional bars without Ematic, the STIHL Ematic system reduces the consumption of chain lubricant by up to 50% depending on the type of wood and the cutting attachment used. This system comprises a STIHL Ematic or Ematic S guide bar, a STIHL Oilomatic saw chain and a variable-flow or reduced-flow oil pump. As a result, virtually every drop of chain lubricant is delivered to exactly the right spot.
Single-lever master control
All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.
