Details

The STIHL MS 231 Petrol Chainsaw is perfect for home users or farmers felling small trees, cutting firewood and general property maintenance. Due to the 2-MIX engine, emissions are cut and fuel consumption is lower compared to a STIHL 2-stroke engine of the same power output without 2-MIX technology.

NOTE:

Your Chainsaw will require engine oil and bar lube. We recommend STIHL HP ULTRA TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL and STIHL SYNTH PLUS CHAIN LUBRICATION for your machine.

Features

    Vibrations from power tools can lead to negative effects on blood vessels. STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the levels. This also helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
  • Ematic Chain Lubrication System

  • Reduced Air Filter Maintenance
    Reduced Air Filter Maintenance
    A pre-separation filter system is used to clean the air before it reaches the main air filter. The benefit is that maintenance of the machine is reduced.
  • Side chain tensioner
    Side Chain Tensioner
    There is a tensioning screw on the side of the Chainsaw through the sprocket cover. This is easy to use and removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.
