Why would you buy any other brand? At only $295 the STIHL MS 170 chainsaw is the lowest cost chainsaw in the STIHL range – and the most popular saw sold to date at STIHL SHOP Lower Hutt.
With a 35cm Rollomatic E bar, the MS170 is ideal for a range of domestic and light commercial uses including cutting branches for firewood and general grounds maintenance.
The MS 170 weighs in at 3.9kg and has a power output of 1.3 kW. The MS 170 is extremely durable, meaning maintenance costs are kept to a minimum, and (unlike other chainsaw outlets) when there is maintenance to complete we are able to fully service this (or any other Stihl) machine in our store.
MS 180 Chainsaw
At 4.1kg and with a 1.4kW power output, the Stihl MS 180 is slightly more powerful than the MS170, making it ideal for property maintence and small firewood jobs.
The MS 180 has all the same features and durability of the MS 170, making it another very popular domestic chainsaw in Wellington.
MS 231 Chainsaw
The STIHL MS 231 weighs in at 4.8kg and comes standard with a 40cm bar. Combine this with a 2.2kW power output and you have one of the best power to weight ratio saws in the STIHL range.
The MS 231 is a very popular mid-range machine chainsaw commonly purchased by contractors, builders, weekend firewood warriors and lifestyle block owners. A duro-chain option enables longer time between chain sharpens – therefore a handy feature for the occasional or casual user.
Those who like comfort, can upgrade to the MS 231c which had the additional features of quick chain tensioning (no tools required) and ErgoStart (a very easy starting mechanism).
