The STIHL MS 291 C-BE Petrol Chainsaw is a great option for farmers, landscapers and gardeners. Powered by an economical 2-MIX engine, fuel consumption is reduced and emissions are also significantly cut compared to a traditional 2-Stroke engine.
Similar to the MS 291 but with additional comfort features including ErgoStart (E) which enables effortless starting and a Quick Chain (B) tensioner to permit tool-free chain adjusting. This saw also includes an advanced anti-vibration system that increases comfort and reduces operator fatigue.
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.

Anti-vibration SystemVibrations 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 SystemA reservoir holds bar oil until it is picked up by the passing chain. This achieves maximum lubrication resulting in longer wear and less oil consumption.
Single Master Control LeverAll the important functions of start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.
Easy Open Fuel and Oil TanksSpecial caps on the fuel and oil tanks allow for easy opening and re-fueling.
Reduced Air Filter MaintenanceA 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.
STIHL Quick Chain Tensioning (B)Tension the chain easily without using tools or coming into contact with the sharp chain. Just release the sprocket cover and turn the adjusting wheel until the optimum tension is reached.
