All Stihl products are easy to operate and reliable and the Stihl MS181 chainsaw is no exception. The Stihl MS181 is one of our most popular homeowner chainsaws and is perfect for cutting firewood and felling small trees.
The Stihl MS181 has a modern design and uses an economical Stihl 2-MIX engine. The 31.8cc engine generates 1.5kW / 2.0hp which gives mid-range performance when compared to Stihl’s range of homeowner chainsaws. Being more powerful than the entry level models, the MS181 is fitted with a slightly wider gauge of chain to give better cutting performance.
The MS181’s engine is fitted with a compensator to ensure that the engine keeps running at peak performance even when the air filter starts to get dirty. The MS181 also features Stihl’s long-life air filter system to ensure maximum life from the air filter. When it is time for a spot of maintenance, the top cover is easy to remove without the need for tools.
The Stihl MS181 is easy to start and the main Off-On-Choke control lever is easy to operate and conveniently placed.
Adding chain oil and fuel is very quick and easy with Stihl’s quick release tank caps.
Chain tensioning is achieved on the Stihl MS181 by loosening just a single nut (combination tool provided) and using the side chain tensioner which keeps your hands away from the chain whilst turning the adjuster.
The Stihl MS181 chainsaw is the perfect choice for anyone wanting a quality homeowner chainsaw at an economical price.
The Stihl MS181 is available with a 12” (30cm), 14” (35cm) or 16” (40cm) guide bar. Please note, cutting length will always be a little shorter than the bar length because of the way guide bars are measured. The difference between the guide bar length and cutting length varies by chainsaw model.
Extend your warranty by an extra year
Purchase a 5 litre bottle of Stihl MotoMix at the same time as buying this machine, and you'll get an extra year on your domestic use warranty - extending your warranty from two years to three. This is subject to Stihl's warranty terms, and machines used in a commercial application don't benefit from the warranty extension.
Simply add 5 litres of MotoMix to your cart alongside your machine before placing your order and we'll register your extended warranty with Stihl.
