VIRGINIA BEACH , Va. — Built tough for storm cleanup, tree felling, and firewood cutting, the STIHL MS 271 chain saw is designed with improved ergonomics and equipped with a low-emission, fuel-efficient engine. The MS 271 produces 50 percent lower emissions, reduces fuel consumption, and delivers 20 percent longer running times as compared to similar traditional 2-stroke STIHL chain saws.
 
Designed with comfort in mind for farmers, landowners, tree farmers, firewood cutters and tree service ground crews, the MS 271 utilizes a compact, ergonomic design with an advanced anti-vibration system to help reduce operator fatigue while providing optimum control. A side-access chain tensioner makes for easy chain adjustment, and the pre-separation air filtration system offers greater cleaning efficiency and longer filter life.
