    Pre-Separation Air Filtration System
    This time-saving technology boosts the efficiency of the engine’s filter system, doubling the time between air filter cleanings. Air drawn into the engine is first separated via centrifugal force, ejecting the heavier dirt particles before being routed to the air filter. This pre-separation means less dirt to be captured by the air filter, resulting in less frequent cleaning and maintenance.

    Anti-Vibration System
    STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.

Important Information
WARNING! The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw. STIHL uses a green and yellow color-coding system to help you select a powerhead, bar and chain combination that complies with the kickback requirements of ANSI Standard B175.1 (gasoline-powered saws) and §30 of UL 1662/ ANSI Standard B175.1 (electric chainsaws). Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus (Q) additional chain braking feature, STIHL reduced kickback bars and STIHL low-kickback saw chains.

STIHL recommends the use of green reduced kickback bars and green low kickback chains on all STIHL chainsaws.
* The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length based on which powerhead it is installed on.
Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% Ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% Ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty. Learn More…

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Power. Starts every time. Bought the MS271 last year and been cutting lots of wood had one issue but it got replaced and been going good ever since. I had used others my friends had but this one puts me to shame and they all went out and bought the same saw. I'm going to upgrade to a pro saw soon but will keep this one. If your looking for a good saw look no farther.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saw for the dollar First chainsaw I ever bought and I am highly impressed with its performance. I’ve used other smaller STIHL chainsaws and liked them but I’ve never had one cut with the ease this one does. Very powerful, reliable, easy to start and can handle any size tree you want down as far as the bar will reach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw Very nice, sturdy, reliable and powerful. I borrowed a friend's different branded saw prior to purchasing this beauty. Other saw was hard to start, underpowered and a general pain to use. The Stihl is on another level. You will be happy with your purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver I live in the US Virgin islands, After being hit by TWO Cat 5 hurricanes only 2 weeks apart, we had our work CUT out for us. Spent about 30 days with this saw in my hand. She took any fallen tree like a dream. Helping get many people out of their houses, and cleared the road so our community could drive safely. Between a handful of 271's and 250's, the majority of the island of St John was cleared. These saws saved lives and I owe them my own. Big thanks to Stihl, and Kenny Chesney who sent the best saws to us after the storm.
