The STIHL MS 271 is the perfect high-performance Chainsaw for demanding farmers, lifestyle block owners, or landscapers. With a STIHL 2-MIX engine that boasts 2.6 kW (3.5 hp) and modern construction technology, it delivers excellent cutting performance. Its enhanced ergonomics and advanced anti-vibration system provide optimal operator convenience and comfort. The lightweight STIHL Light 04 guide bar further enhances its efficiency, making it a reliable and effective tool.

Additionally, the Chainsaw's single-lever operation simplifies the work process, enabling easy access to all essential functions with just one hand. The MS 271's economical 2-MIX engine technology produces lower emissions and consumes less fuel than traditional 2-stroke engines, ensuring a more eco-friendly operation. To prevent larger dirt particles from reaching the filter and to reduce cleaning frequency, the chainsaw comes with pre-separation technology.

Other features include toolless fuel and oil caps, transparent fuel tank, side-access chain tensioner. These features make the STIHL MS 271 the perfect choice for a landscaper or farmer seeking a reliable, high-performance chainsaw.


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.

  • 2-MIX Engine
    STIHL 2-MIX Engine
    The 2-MIX engine features an advanced stratified charge system that boosts power, whilst reducing consumption and pollution, significantly lowering unburned hydrocarbons in the exhaust. Resulting in a cleaner, more fuel efficient engine.
  • Reduced Air Filter Maintenance
    Long-Life Air Filter System For Chainsaws
    Pre-separation routing removes coarse, larger particles from the airstream before they can reach the actual filter. The HD2 filter keeps even fine dust away from the engine, ensuring a long engine service life, long cleaning intervals and easy maintenance.
  • STIHL Four-Channel Technology
    STIHL four-channel technology enables you to operate your power tool with high performance and low fuel consumption. By guiding the fuel-and-air mixture into the cylinder through four overflow channels in a precise and compressed manner, the engine burns the fuel optimally and boosts its performance significantly.
  • Anti-vibration system
    Anti-Vibration System
    When using power tools, vibrations can arise and be felt most strongly in the grip area. The STIHL anti-vibration system's buffer and spring components work to minimize the transfer of engine vibrations to the handle and ultimately to your body. This results in a more comfortable grip, making the tool easier to handle and reducing fatigue during work.
  • Easy Open Fuel and Oil Tanks
    Tool Free Fuel Caps
    Thanks to the tool-free fuel filler cap, you can easily open and close the oil and fuel tank.
  • Single Master Control Lever
    Single Master Control Lever
    All the important functions of start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.
  • Side-Mounted Chain Tensioning
    The tensioning screw can be found on the side of chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.
