The STIHL MS 170 is an affordable Chainsaw with an excellent power-to-weight ratio that lets you tackle trees up to 14 inches (35 cm) in diameter.

This Chainsaw has many of the same design features as the STIHL professional saws used by forestry workers, such as the Anti-Vibration system for more comfortable handling, and Ematic Chain Lubrication for less oil consumption and optimal lubrication. For these reasons, the MS 170 Chainsaw is an excellent choice for home users seeking a high quality and reliable Chainsaw at an entry-level price.

The MS 170 comes with a domestic 2-year warranty and you'll have access to ongoing service and support from your local STIHL SHOP.


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.

    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.

Looking after your Chainsaw

Cleaning your Chainsaw regularly after use can help extend the life of your machine. Avoid leaving fuel in the tank for long periods of time (approx. 1 month).

Receiving ongoing service and parts

Your local STIHL SHOP can provide you with technical support and assistance for the life of your machine. In addition STIHL continues to make spare parts for 10 years after they have retired a product from production - so buying a STIHL is always a great long term investment.

Doubling your warranty

You can double the warranty of your petrol STIHL tools by adding a bottle of STIHL HP ULTRA TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL to your cart with purchase, and servicing your Chainsaw annually at your local STIHL SHOP.

Storing your Chainsaw

Engage the chain brake to stop the chain from spinning and store on a flat surface in a secure location away from children. To prevent accidental cuts or damage to the chain, place the scabbard over the bar.
