VIRGINIA BEACH , Va. – The STIHL MS 311 and MS 391 mid-range chain saws are ideal choices for the environmentally-conscious landowners, tree farmers or homeowners for firewood cutting, storm cleanup, and tree removal. Backed with STIHL low-emission engine technology, the MS 311 and MS 391 improve fuel efficiency by up to 20% and reduce emissions by up to 50% as compared to previous models, meaning longer run times between refueling and lower fuel costs.

Both models offer a pre-separation air filtration system that requires fewer filter changes, allowing for longer run times between filter maintenance, and an advanced anti-vibration system that reduces vibration, resulting in operator comfort.


The STIHL MS 311 and MS 391 also feature a toolless fuel and oil cap with retainers, translucent fuel tank, and side-access chain tensioner, making them great options for your next tough job. The p latform design concept allows for streamlined parts and maintenance.
