A comfortable & simple top-range property maintenance saw.
Thanks to STIHL's ErgoStart and Quick Chain Tensioning technology that are included with this machine, you can rely on its comfortable and trouble-free operation. Available with a 14, 16 or 18 inch bar length.
Premium features as standard
The MS 251 C-BE is a premium chainsaw, coming with STIHL's ErgoStart and Quick Chain Tensioning as standard. ErgoStart takes the effort and hassle out of starting your machine. The overall effort needed to get it running is halved, while the starter cord can be pulled with just a third of the normal force. Two fingers and a gentle pull is all it takes. The Quick Chain Tensioning system means that after releasing the sprocket cover, the chain can be adjusted using a thumb wheel and with no need for tools.
Robust & efficient
This machine uses STIHL's 2-MIX engine technology, which provides excellent performance with lower emissions and less fuel consumption compared to non-2-MIX machinery. It also uses a pre-separation air filtration system to achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional systems. This works by ejecting larger, heavier particles, before they reach the filter. The MS 251 also benefits from the Ematic chain lubrication system to provide maximum lubrication, longer wear and reduce bar oil consumption by up to 50 percent.
Comfortable & easy to operate
As well as the premium features outlined above, the MS 251 C-BE also boasts STIHL's anti-vibration technology that dampens the engine's oscillations to significantly reduce vibrations at the unit's handles. All of the important operating functions are housed on a single lever, which works to reduce fatigue and make the saw more comfortable to operate. Tool free filler caps with special catches on make the tanks easy to open and lock, and ensure you can reduce spillages and top up your machine without hassle.
