    Stihl’s MS231C-BE chainsaw fits into Stihl’s range towards the top of their ‘occasional use’ range. The MS231C-BE has a 42.6cc engine which makes it ideal for more demanding homeowners and occasional commercial users such as farmers, landscape contractors and construction workers.

    Ideal for cutting firewood, felling small trees and working with construction wood, the Stihl MS231C-BE is packed with features which include the impressive ErgoStart system. ErgoStart is a spring assisted starting system which makes the MS231C-BE exceptionally easy to start. We would always urge caution when storing a chainsaw to ensure that it is kept out of reach of children but we urge extra caution on saws fitted with ErgoStart because of the ease with which these saws can be started.

    The Stihl MS231C-BE has a modern design and uses an economical Stihl 2-MIX engine. The engine generates 2.0kW / 2.7hp which gives excellent occasional-use performance.

    The MS231C-BE’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 MS231C-BE also features Stihl’s long-life air filter system to ensure maximum life from the air filter.

    Adding chain oil and fuel is very quick and easy with Stihl’s quick release tank caps.

    Chain tensioning is achieved on the Stihl MS231C-BE via the tool-free Quick Chain tensioning system. Just loosen the side case, adjust the chain tension with the adjuster wheel and re-tighten the side case.

    The Stihl MS231C-BE chainsaw has an excellent reputation for performance and reliability and is trusted by many users.

    The Stihl MS231C-BE is available with a 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.
