The Stihl MS251 C-BE chainsaw with an 18 inch bar is the most powerful of the property maintenance chainsaws from Stihl and is perfect for cutting fire wood or felling smaller trees. At Masseys we class the MS251 C-BE as the top of the range saw for heavy duty domestic use.
Masseys are open 7 days a week and we have the chainsaw in store to view.
The Stihl MS251 C-BE has a powerful 45.6 cc engine that produces 2.2 kW / 3.0 hp power output. The machine weighs only 5.2 kg without the bar and chain. The chainsaw has a Stihl 4-MIX engine that gives outstanding power to weight ratio and yet falls within the stringent EU regulations on emissions. The chainsaw has a number of featires including Stihl ErgoStart. This reduces the amount of effort and pull needed on the recoil and it means the recoil will pull much smoother. The secret is an extra spring in the recoil system.

Features of the Stihl MS251 C-BE chainsaw
Pre-separation air filtration system – long-life air filtration systems with pre-separation achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional filter systems.
Compensator – This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged.
Manual fuel pump (Purger) – A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.
Single-lever master control – All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.
Ematic chain lubrication system – The Ematic system can reduce bar oil consumption by up to 50 percent.
STIHL ErgoStart (E) – Reduces 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 a gentle pull action.
Chain Quick Tensioning (B) – Can be adjusted without tools
Purchased from Masseys – If your chainsaw was purchased from Masseys and it develops a manufacturing fault during the warranty period, simply return the chainsaw to store and our mechanics will repair the machine free of charge. A warranty repair is when the machine has failed because of improper material or workmanship, under normal use and maintenance.
Purchased online – If you chainsaw was purchased from elsewhere, then we charge an initial £29.99 inspection charge to look at the machine. This will be refunded if the fault is a warranty issue and when the manufacturer has processed and accepted the warranty claim in full. Warranty for non-Masseys customers is 4-12 weeks as we have a duty to ensure our own customers are prioritised first.
Masseys are open 7 days a week and the chainsaw is on show to view. For more information about the saw then please refer to the owner’s hand book.
