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
  • 2-MIX Engine
    2-MIX Engine
    Modern, powerful and economical engine. Provides fuel savings and reduced emissions.
  • Anti-vibration system
    Anti-vibration System
    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
    Ematic Chain Lubrication System
    A 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 Lever
    Single Master Control Lever
    All the important functions of start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.
  • Easy Open Fuel and Oil Tanks
    Easy Open Fuel and Oil Tanks
    Special caps on the fuel and oil tanks allow for easy opening and re-fueling.
  • 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.
