Click here for a user video and his first impressions.


A STIHL OILOMATIC® Saw Chain STIHL makes its own saw chain.

B Ematic™ Bar includes a polymer ramp reservoir which holds bar oil until it can be picked up by passing chain. This can reduce oil usage by up to 50%.  Stihl makes their own bars as well.

C Bumper Spikes provide better control, making cutting easier.

D Spark Arrestor Muffler has large baffles which reduce noise level and contain a screen designed to reduce the emission of sparks.

E STIHL Quickstop® Chain Brake System is designed to stop the chain in fractions of a second. Can be manually activated or activated by inertia, if the kickback force is sufficient.

F Front Hand Guard is designed to reduce the risk of injury.

G Front Handle is designed for a secure grip and ergonomically angled for comfort.

H Protected Spark Plug is protected, yet easy to change.

I Large Starting Handle is easy to grip.

J Smooth Clean Design has no rough edges to snag on clothing or brush.

K Air Filter Cover is easy to remove for fast and easy filter cleaning or replacement.

L Master Control Lever™ is a single lever operating the choke, starting throttle lock and on-off switch.

M Rear Hand Guard reduces the risk of injury, as well as providing wide area for foot placement during starting.

N High-Tech Polymer Housings are lightweight, withstand greater impact, and are corrosion-resistant.

O Translucent Fuel Tank allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work.

P Anti-Vibration System helps reduce operator fatigue.

Q Toolless Fuel and Oil Caps require no tools to open or tighten. Cap retainers help keep cap from being lost.

What is "QS" ?Braking System 

QS stands for quick stop. The throttle interlock lever (on top of rear handle) is linked to the chain brake. As soon as you release pressure on the lever, it stops the chain. (Engine keeps going). This is especially important for those making rapid succession cuts with minimal user interaction, such as forest fire fighting.

What is meant by "PRO" ?  Model MS 360 Pro

Stihl Pro chainsaws come in a variety of sizes. However, they all have this in common: They are intended for day in, day out use.  They are designed to be "engine-centric" (bar bolts directly to the engine, with no plastic in-between). This results in a stronger, lighter machine. Most all models have Intellicarb® to keep running even with a dirty filter. 

What is the "RESCUE" saw?


Click to here find out more!

THIS SPECIALTY CHAIN SAW CAN ONLY BE PURCHASED BY TRAINED EMERGENCY SERVICES. There is an optional adjustable bar guard with limits penetration while sawing to avoid cutter roof rafters. The chain is specially suited as well, designed for opening up shingle roofing, around doors or windows, anywhere you need a controlled hole.

What is different about an arborist' saw?Model MS 200T  Lightweight, powerful, with a top mounted handlebar. It is designed for tree climbers:
  • Retractable lanyard ring.
  • There is a lot of power in such a small package.
  • Lightweight
  • Strong and durable.

The disadvantage of top handled saws is that they are inherently more dangerous. With your hands that high up and close together, you cannot get as much leverage as rear handle saws.  We sell these saws only to professional users.

Pruning Saws

Perfect for reaching those branches that are out of reach. Put that ladder back in the garage, and use this saw! 

It comes in a variety of different ways:

  • Size of the engine (31.4, 36.3cc)
  • Fixed length or telescoping

A must for the arborist!  Automatic chain oiler. Uses the patented 4Mix engine that really puts out the torque needed by pole pruners to get the job done.  No need to 'ease off' the pressure when cutting to help the engine keep up. With the 4Mix, you just put the saw down, and let it cut.

MS 270C

What does the "C" mean in 250C?

The "C" stands for "comfort" (or was that convenience?)
Depending upon the model, it would include:

  •  Tool-less entry for guidebar tension adjustment and chain replacement. Stihl has this down to an art!  It works well, and is very reliable. This is NOT a cheap knockoff.

  • Most "C" models have Easy2Start© which is designed to minimize the 2 stroke compression jerk during starting. This is great for those of us with arthritis, bursitis, and many other 'itis-s'.

  • Many "C" models also have a primer bulb to help the starting process along even more.
