The lightest top handle saw made by STIHL.
This upgraded version of the MS 151 features a new 2-MIX engine that consists of a new cylinder, piston and exhaust. These changes mean there is an increase in power of the saw by up to 1.05kW and a 15% increase in torque to 1.1Nm – all while retaining the lightweight nature of the saw.
Fitted with a manual fuel pump and STIHL’s ErgoStart (E) technology, this saw is easy to start-up so you can get on with the job straight away.
Available with either a 10″ or 12″ bar and fitted with a 1/4″ PM3 saw chain for a finer, precise cut.
