New compact chain saw with a low emission and fuel-efficient engine

The compact design of the robust STIHL MS 251 gas-driven chainsaw makes it ideal for work in domestic settings and by skilled trades. This chainsaw is particularly well-suited to harvesting firewood in the forest. The STIHL MS 251 gas-driven chainsaw impresses with its high cutting performance and durable STIHL .325 RM3 saw chain. Even thick tree trunks can be effectively felled and processed with the optional 40 cm bar.

The MS 251 gas-driven chainsaw has a STIHL 2-MIX engine with 2.2 kW (3.0 hp). Single-lever control enables you to perform essential functions with one hand, such as starting and stopping this power tool. As a result, you can operate the chainsaw comfortably and safely, as your right hand can always remain on the handle. To protect your joints and muscles, the STIHL anti-vibration system reduces engine and power tool vibrations.

So that you can work as effectively as possible, this STIHL 251 chainsaw has additional features such as a tool-free fuel cap and pre-separation routing, which keeps coarse particles away from the filter. To additionally protect the engine from fine dust, you can also retrofit this gas-driven chainsaw with an HD2 air filter, meaning that your STIHL MS 251 will benefit from a long-life air filter system.
