Some chain saws have to work for a living; whether on a farm or out on the ranch. No matter where there’s work to be done, the proven dependability of a STIHL is on the job. STIHL offers a variety of high-performance chain saws that are engineered for service, day in and day out. The chain saws in the "Farm and Ranch" category are ideal for a variety of uses. One thing you can be sure of – they have what it takes to get the job done.
Built tough for felling, firewood cutting and storm cleanup tasks, the STIHL MS 271 chain saw is designed with improved ergonomics and equipped with a fuel-efficient, low-emission engine. Bringing reduced-emission technology to mid-range users, the MS 271 produces 50% lower emissions than previous models. Its fuel-efficient engine reduces gasoline consumption and delivers 20% longer run times compared to traditional 2-stroke engines.
The MS 271 was designed with user comfort in mind, utilizing a compact, ergonomic design combined with an advanced anti-vibration system to help reduce operator fatigue while providing optimum control. Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers and a transparent fuel tank contribute to improved usability. A side-access chain tensioner makes for easy chain adjustment, and a pre-separation air filtration system offers greater cleaning efficiency and longer filter life.
