Description

THE STIHL MS 170 HAS BEEN SUPERSEDED BY THE STIHL MS 162 PETROL CHAINSAW.

The STIHL MS 170 is a handy entry-level model petrol chainsaw and comes with a free sharpener whilst stocks last. Tried and tested for many years by homeowners who require a reliable 2-Stroke chainsaw which will quickly get the job done. Suitable for most wood-cutting chores around the garden. The MS 170 chainsaw is powered by a 30.1cc petrol engine with a power output of 1.2kw and a bar length of 12″/30cm. This lightweight chainsaw is ideal for logging thanks to its lightness, weighing in at only 4.2 kg. This chainsaw is easy to use and features an automatic chain lubrication system. The STIHL MS 170 complies with the EU 11 exhaust emission standards for power tools. Built with a side access chain tensioner and a one-piece shroud for hassle-free maintenance. The chainsaw features a PMMC3 chain with a pitch of 3/8″ that provides reduced kickback for the user.

STIHL 2-MIX Engine
Thanks to the highly economical STIHL 2-MIX engine with 1-in-4 channel technology you can expect fuel savings of up to 20% when compared to STIHL chainsaws in the same performance class without it. Better yet, you keep the same high torque and wide speed range and exhaust emissions are reduced by up to 50%.

Anti-vibration System
Power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in your hands and arms due to the intense vibrations they cause. STIHL has helped overcome this issue by developing an effective anti-vibration system where the oscillations from the high-speed engine are dampened, thus, reducing the vibrations a user feels through the handles.

Compensator
A small controller in the carburettor helps to prevent the fuel-air mixture from getting richer as the filter becomes clogged through use. The correct amount of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air which is passing through the air filter. Thanks to this feature the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture remain constant and so does the engine power. The filter doesn?t need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.

Single-lever master control
All the important functions such as the start, choke, throttle and stop mechanisms are easily operated on a single lever.

Extend your domestic warranty from 2 to 3 years with the purchase of 5 litres of STIHL MotoMix? fuel and this product. We will register your extended warranty on the STIHL warranty database at the point of purchase.

Instruction is necessary to recognise or assess the dangers of a chainsaw. Please wear protective clothing and equipment. If anything is unclear, we recommend ordering the chainsaw via Click & Collect and pickup up the chainsaw from your local Torne Valley store.
