A powerful, entry-level gas-powered chainsaw ideal for woodcutting tasks around the home.

The MS 172 C-E chainsaw is a powerful, lightweight tool equipped with STIHL ErgoStart technology so users can get to work with ease. Making the MS 172 C-E an optimal tool for homeowners looking to take on woodcutting tasks around the home.

The STIHL MS 172 C-E gas chainsaw impresses with its powerful STIHL 2-MIX engine, which is known for excellent cutting performance coupled with low fuel consumption. Thanks to STIHL ErgoStart, you need significantly less force to even start the MS 172 C-E. The standard STIHL 3/8” P saw chain ensures precise cuts. Thanks to the STIHL anti-vibration system, you can work with the STIHL MS 172 C-E chainsaw while protecting your muscles and joints. This means that your chainsaw runs smoothly and evenly.

The single-lever control is very convenient, enabling you to perform all functions with just one hand. If you take a break, the chainsaw is ready to use again immediately. The combi-lever with stop function automatically springs back into the operating position. Another advantage of using the MS 172 C-E from STIHL: Side-mounted chain tensioning ensures safe and easy chain retensioning without any contact with the sharp chain or the tips of the claw stop.

The STIHL MS 172 C-E also has a diagnostic socket for maintaining your gas chainsaw. This will provide your local STIHL dealer with information about the machine design, service life and repair and maintenance instructions.
