The STIHL MS 172 petrol chainsaw offers an ideal combination of affordability and performance, perfect for homeowners seeking a cost-effective solution for tasks like cutting firewood or felling small trees. Boasting greater power and torque than the MS 162, the MS 172 efficiently manages a larger guide bar to tackle more demanding jobs.

Enjoy the robust capabilities of the STIHL 2-MIX engine, renowned for its remarkable cutting power while maintaining fuel efficiency. With a 14-inch guide bar and a 3/8" P saw chain, the MS 172 excels in delivering superior cutting performance, ensuring precise cuts with its narrow kerf. The anti-vibration system is designed to dramatically reduce vibration levels, allowing for a more comfortable and less tiring experience during operation.

The straightforward single-lever control, coupled with a handy combi-lever, facilitates quick and easy restarts, keeping work interruptions to a minimum. Monitoring fuel and oil levels is a breeze with the clear fuel and oil tanks, allowing for timely refuelling and oil top-ups without second-guessing. Chain adjustments are simple with the side-mounted chain tensioning mechanism.

The MS 172 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.

This Chainsaw comes with: Powerhead, Bar, Chain & Scabbard.

  • 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
    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
    Only one start position is required on the combi lever. Due to the stop function, once the machine is turned off the control lever immediately moves back to the operating position. This allows a warm machine to be restarted immediately.
  • STIHL 2-MIX Engine
    STIHL 2-Mix Engine
    Our 2-stroke engines combine a high-performance cylinder with a streamlined combustion process to deliver outstanding power, reduced fuel consumption, and significantly lower exhaust emissions.
  • Side Chain Tensioner
    Side Chain Tensioner
    The tensioning screw can be found on the side of the Chainsaw through the SPROCKIT cover. This means you don't need to come into contact with the chain.
  • Ematic Chain Lubrication System
    Transparent Oil Tank
    Allows the operator to easily check the fuel level before starting work.
  • Compensator
    Automatically adjusts the fuel mix as the air filter clogs, maintaining proper engine RPM.This keeps the engine running smoothly even with a dirty air filter.
