Easy-Access Air Filter Cover
Easy to remove for fast and easy filter cleaning or replacement.
STIHL Easy2Start™ (E)
The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products easier. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.
IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the air/fuel ratio when the air filter becomes restricted or partially clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM. IntelliCarb™ uses air from the clean side of the air filter to control the diaphragm and flow of fuel. As the air filter becomes dirty and less air is available for the carburetor, the IntelliCarb™ system adjusts the fuel flow to compensate for the decrease in air flow. This is in contrast to typical carburetors that utilize this air from the “dirty” side of the air box.
Side-Access Chain Tensioner
The side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw.
Adjustable Automatic Oiler
The Adjustable Automatic Oiler allows the user to adjust the lubricant of the guide bar and saw chain for different bar lengths and cutting conditions.
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.
STIHL OILOMATIC® Saw Chain
Features specially engineered grooves designed to channel oil to critical wear areas.
Throttle Trigger Lockout
Must be depressed before the trigger can be activated.
Protected Spark Plug
Spark plug terminal is protected, yet easy to change.
Spark Arrester Muffler
Has large baffles which reduce noise level and contain a screen designed to reduce the emission of sparks.
Help prevent pull-in and provide better control, making cutting easier.
Master Control Lever™
The Master Control Lever™ is an easy to use single lever, operating the choke, starting throttle lock, and on-off switch. The operator must pull the throttle trigger before moving the Master Control Lever™ to the choke position.
STIHL chainsaws are equipped with a chain stopping system designed to reduce the risk of injury in certain kickback situations. It is called a STIHL Quickstop® chain brake. The STIHL Quickstop® chain brake is designed to stop the rotation of the chain if activated by the operator’s hand or by inertia if the saw kicks back with sufficient force. In some working positions, the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake can be activated by inertia, stopping the chain within fractions of a second.
Ematic™ Lubrication System
The Ematic™ guide bar, when used with STIHL OILOMATIC® saw chain, will provide proper lubrication and less oil consumption than conventional methods. The system works because two ramps, strategically placed in the guide bar rail, help contain the flow of oil and direct all lubrication to the sliding faces of the bar and chain links as well as the rivets and driver holes, which in turn can reduce bar oil consumption up to 50%.
Translucent Fuel Tank
Allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work.
Front Hand Guard
Designed to reduce the risk of injury.
Rear Hand Guard
Reduces the risk of injury as well as provides a wide area for foot placement during starting.
Designed for a secure grip and ergonomically angled for comfort.
High-Tech Polymer Housings
Housings are lightweight, withstand greater impact, and are corrosion-resistant.
Purge Pump Primer
By pressing the bulb, this small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburetor, reducing the number of starting pulls needed after an extended break between uses.
Toolless Fuel and Oil Caps with Retainers
Simply lift the lever and twist the caps to remove or tighten. There’s no need to use a tool to tighten or loosen.
More Power Lower Emissions
Provides excellent power with low emissions.
Lightweight (Lightest in its STIHL Farm & Ranch class)
Lightest saw in its STIHL Farm & Ranch class.
Easy to Use
The lightweight and easy-to-use MS 151 C-E minimizes fatigue, allowing users to work longer and get more done.
