MS 162 gas chainsaw: entry-level model for a variety of tasks

The STIHL MS 162 gas chainsaw is a reliable entry-level power tool for private grounds maintenance. Whether you want to saw firewood or prune fruit trees, the lightweight and robust STIHL MS 162 chainsaw is suitable for occasional use in a wide range of applications. This reliable chainsaw can even fell smaller trees.

The powerful STIHL 2-MIX engine is part of the optimised overall system of the STIHL MS 162, ensuring good cutting performance alongside low fuel consumption. This means that you can reliably make precise cuts supported by the standard 3/8"P saw chain with its narrow kerf. Your chainsaw runs smoothly and quietly: the STIHL anti-vibration system reduces transmission of vibrations to the handle, which relieves strain on your muscles and joints.

Highly convenient: all functions such as start, operation and stop can be controlled with just one hand thanks to single-lever operation. Restarting after interruptions is effortless because the combi-lever with stop function automatically springs back into the operating position. Other comfort features include safe and easy chain re-tensioning facilitated by extremely practical side-mounted chain tensioning.
