Stihl MS 271 is a semi-professional saw from the Stihl company and is very attractive for hunters in terms of price and good properties. In addition, t is ergonomically built and optimally balanced. The MS 271 chainsaw is powerful and immediately accepts the accelerator. The lids for fuel and chain oil can be opened without tools. This worked perfectly even with heavy soiling.
The test device did not have a fuel pump ball, but it still started well even after long periods of inactivity. The long-term air filter system results in a long filter service life. In combination with the Stihl compensator, a control system in the carburetor, this is a clear advantage. The air filter only needs to be cleaned when the performance drops. Long maintenance intervals are possible. In general, the saw is easy to clean. To attach the housing cover,
Stihl used large screws that can be opened with a Torx or the slot on the combination wrench. Unfortunately, the felling marks are in the same color as the case and therefore do not stand out optically. The carburetor can be adjusted from the outside.
Stihl MS 271 Who is the product suitable for?
With a blade length of 37 centimeters, the MS 271 petrol chainsaw from Stihl is one of the all-rounders in this product category. It is just as suitable for professionals as a maneuverable second saw as it is for discerning hobby gardeners who need a lot of saws.
Strengths and Weaknesses
With a net weight of 5.6 kilograms, the chainsaw, which is no longer light, justifies its weight with the powerful, 2.6-kilowatt single-cylinder engine, which, thanks to improved air inflow, is said to be highly efficient and particularly environmentally friendly. It is less suitable for use in a noisy environment, the sound power level is a very high 115 decibels.
The anti-vibration suspension of the drive is intended to relieve the joints, especially in continuous use. In order to allow maintenance intervals to be as long as possible, the sucked-in air is centrifugally pre-cleaned and the carburetor adjusts itself automatically to changes in the airflow. The design of the guide bar and the saw chain are intended to enable particularly economical use of lubricants.
Stihl is not a tip for budget-conscious casual hunters. Rather, it offers users with high sawing needs sophisticated and up-to-date sawing technology that is well processed and can come up with appealing technical key data.

- Comment: The chainsaw bought at an incredibly low price, the purchase amount was refunded shortly afterward without any explanation.
- Comment: The chainsaw is easy to start and has power. The only downside is that the operating instructions are not included, otherwise, all parts are available I would buy the MS again.
