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 BIO PLUS CHAIN LUBRICATION for your machine.
