MS271 Chainsaw with 16" bar.
For more than just an occasional job, these chain saws get the bigger jobs done right. They are perfect for cutting firewood, and have more power and features than our smaller chain saws. Farmers and landscapers also depend on mid-range chain saws from STIHL to take down bigger trees, clear thicker limbs and larger areas.
Built tough for felling, firewood cutting and storm cleanup tasks, the STIHL MS 271 chain saw is designed with improved ergonomics and equipped with a fuel-efficient, low-emission engine. Bringing reduced-emission technology to mid-range users, the MS 271 produces 50% lower emissions than previous models. Its fuel-efficient engine reduces gasoline consumption and delivers 20% longer run times compared to traditional 2-stroke engines.
The MS 271 was designed with user comfort in mind, utilizing a compact, ergonomic design combined with an advanced anti-vibration system to help reduce operator fatigue while providing optimum control. Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers and a transparent fuel tank contribute to improved usability. A side-access chain tensioner makes for easy chain adjustment, and a pre-separation air filtration system offers greater cleaning efficiency and longer filter life.
