MS 162 PETROL CHAINSAW: IDEAL FOR PROCESSING WOOD IN HOME GARDENS – The STIHL MS 162 petrol chainsaw is a reliable petrol chainsaw for homeowners. Whether you are processing firewood, pruning or felling small trees, the MS 162 is an ideal entry-level choice that packs enough power to get the job done.
Powered by a STIHL 2-MIX engine, the MS 162 has great cutting performance and low fuel consumption. It’s fitted with a 12” guide bar and 3/8″ P saw chain which has high cutting performance thanks to the narrow kerf. The STIHL anti-vibration system reduces transmission of vibrations to the handle, which relieves strain on your muscles and joints. The MS 162 has single-lever operation and is effortless to restart after interruptions thanks to the combi-lever. It’s also fitted with a transparent fuel and oil tank, so you can clearly see when the chainsaw needs a fuel or oil top up. Re-tensioning the chain is safe and easy to do too, thanks to the practical side-mounted chain tensioning.
Instruction is necessary to recognize or assess the dangers of a chainsaw. Please wear protective clothing and equipment.
Exterior design of STIHL guide bars are subject to change. Technical specifications remain the same.

COMBI LEVER WITH STOP FUNCTION
Only one start position is required on the combi lever. Thanks to the stop function, once the machine is turned off the control lever immediately moves back into the operating position. This allows a warm machine to be restarted immediately.
SIDE CHAIN TENSIONER
The tensioning screw can be found on the side of the chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.
1-in-4 channel technology. The economical STIHL 2-MIX engine with 1-in-4channel technology features a high torque over a wide speed range. The chainsaw provides fuel savings of up to 20% compared to STIHL two-stroke engines in the same performance class without 2-MIX technology. Exhaust emissions are reduced by up to 50%.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL’s effective anti-vibration system dampens the oscillations from the machine’s engine which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn’t need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.
TRANSPARENT OIL TANK
With the transparent oil tank, you can easily and quickly check the fill level of the chain oil. This means that you always know when you need to add chain oil for efficient work over long periods.
ADVANCED COMBUSTION TECHNOLOGY
Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. The result is lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range.
