Saws


If you’re looking to choose a chainsaw for work around your home, you’ve come to the right place. For one, it’s hard to imagine a better selection of chainsaws than STIHL. What’s more, many of our chainsaws are German-engineered and built in America.** To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, B = Quick Chain Adjuster, E = Easy2Start™, and Q = an additional chain braking feature.

A chainsaw designed for firewood cutting – with a great power-to-weight ratio.

A step up from the MS 230, the MS 250 is light enough to move through smaller tasks like clearing or cleanup but packs a powerful enough punch to cut through small limbs and trees. A combination of features and a high power-to-weight ratio makes this one of the best homeowner chainsaws on the market.

Model Features:

  • IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor 
  • Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers
  • Master Control Lever™ 
STIHL recommends #3610 (61 PMM3 55) OILOMATIC® saw chain and 16" 3005 000 3913 EMATIC™ guide bar combination. The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length depending upon which power head it is installed.
