Stihl MS162 Chainsaw Features –

Here are some of the great features you will find on the Stihl MS162 chainsaw –

STIHL Quickstop®

STIHL chainsaws are equipped with a chain stopping system designed to reduce the risk of injury in certain kickback situations. It is called a STIHL Quickstop® chain brake. The STIHL Quickstop® chain brake is designed to stop the rotation of the chain if activated by the operator’s hand or by inertia if the saw kicks back with sufficient force. In some working positions, the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake can be activated by inertia, stopping the chain within fractions of a second.

Side-Access Chain Tensioner

The side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw.

Anti-Vibration System

STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.

Translucent Fuel Tank

Allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work.

Master Control Lever™

The Master Control Lever™ is an easy to use single lever, operating the choke, starting throttle lock, and on-off switch. The operator must pull the throttle trigger before moving the Master Control Lever™ to the choke position.

Easy-Access Air Filter Cover

Easy to remove for fast and easy filter cleaning or replacement.

Front Hand Guard

Designed to reduce the risk of injury.

Rear Hand Guard

Reduces the risk of injury as well as provides a wide area for foot placement during starting.


Features specially engineered grooves designed to channel oil to critical wear areas.

Throttle Trigger Lockout

Must be depressed before the trigger can be activated.

Spark Arrester Muffler

Has large baffles which reduce noise level and contain a screen designed to reduce the emission of sparks.

Bumper Spikes

Help prevent pull-in and provide better control, making cutting easier.

High-Tech Polymer Housings

Housings are lightweight, withstand greater impact, and are corrosion-resistant.

IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor

The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the air/fuel ratio when the air filter becomes restricted or partially clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM. IntelliCarb™ uses air from the clean side of the air filter to control the diaphragm and flow of fuel. As the air filter becomes dirty and less air is available for the carburetor, the IntelliCarb™ system adjusts the fuel flow to compensate for the decrease in air flow. This is in contrast to typical carburetors that utilize this air from the “dirty” side of the air box.

Easy to Use Homeowner Chainsaw

Featuring powerful performance and lightweight convenience, this homeowner chain saw gets the job done when it comes to yard maintenance and cutting firewood.

Reduced Exhaust Emissions

Features reduced exhaust emissions allowing you to make less of an impact on your surroundings.
