Stihl MS 162 - Homeowner- 30cm Chainsaw


The NEW STIHL MS 162 petrol chainsaw is a reliable petrol chainsaw for homeowners and gardeners. 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.
