The lightest top handle chainsaw, the MS 151 T C-E is perfect for use up trees.
If you are looking for a petrol chainsaw for all those aerial tasks, then the MS 151 T C-E really is the one to buy. Ticking all the boxes, it’s great for cutting down small trees, sectioning firewood, or pruning tasks.
Additionally, it’s super simple to control with all the operation controlled by a single lever which adjusts the starter, choke, throttle and stop. Manoeuvring the chainsaw is effortless too, being a super lightweight at just under 3 kilos, will help reduce fatigue for long periods of use. Around the chainsaw is a loop-handle grip to ensure maximum control and reduce kickback.
Furthermore, Stihl has introduced an anti-vibration system to the MS151T C-E which dampens the oscillations through the chainsaw and into the handle. This helps prevent the long term effects of stress when using power tools in the fingers and wrists.
A genuine advance in easy starting, Stihl ErgoStart (E) cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one-third of the normal force. All it takes is 2 fingers and gentle pull action.
More powerful but extremely economical
Stihl has designed this MS 151 T C-E semi-pro chainsaw with efficiency in mind. Benefitting from a highly powerful 2-stroke petrol engine with a 2-mix system, it results in a 20% lower fuel consumption and greatly reduced emissions compared to other 2-stroke models.
What’s more, the fuel and air ratio is controlled by an advanced compensator. This prevents the carburettor’s fuel-air mixture becoming rich in petrol and the air filter becoming clogged. Only the right amount of fuel is delivered depending on the volume of air being sucked in, resulting in constant engine power. This Stihl chainsaw also benefits from a pre-separation air filtration system, which means longer filter life.
Finally, Stihl has produced the MS 151 T C-E chainsaw with its Ematic chain lubrication system. To make the chains last longer and reduce friction, the system lubricates the saw chains links and guide bar rails, resulting in less wear and up to 50% less oil consumption.
