An easy-to-start saw ideal for general garden cutting jobs.
With additional comfort features over and above the standard MS 181, the C-BE version is a great choice for discerning gardeners looking for a great all-round chainsaw.
Superb levels of comfort and ease-of-use
Thanks to STIHL's ErgoStart system, starting the machine has never been easier. The effort to get the tool running has been cut in half, and just two fingers and a gentle pull is all that's necessary in terms of force on the starter cord. The other feature that differentiates this model from the standard MS 181 is the Chain Quick Tensioning. This allows you to adjust the chain after releasing the sprocket cover without the need for tools.
Excellent performance & efficiency
Backed up by STIHL's 2-MIX engine technology, the MS 181 C-BE enjoys fuel savings of up to 20 percent compared to standard 2-stroke machinery, while exhaust emissions are reduced by up to 50 percent. Advanced combustion technology results in further fuel savings, as well as high torque across a broad rpm range. A compensator in the carburettor ensures constant engine power as it maintains the fuel-air ratio even as the air filter becomes clogged.
A great machine to work with
Frequent users will appreciate features such as the Ematic chain lubrication system, that ensures pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails. This results in maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption. A long-life air filtration system achieves perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional technology. The MS 181 is also a comfortable saw to operate, with all important functions located on a single lever, tool-free filler caps and a manual fuel pump to reduce the number of starting strokes.
