, , ,

The Stihl MS 211 C-BE chainsaw with a 14 inch bar is a powerful saw that is ideal for cutting firewood and general property maintenance.

  • As we PDI and register your chainsaw you can be sure you WILL get your 2 years domestic warranty.

The Stihl MS211 C-BE Chainsaw is recommended fro someone that is looking for a powerful domestic chainsaw that is ideal for cutting firewood and general property maintenance, but with the added benefit of being easy to start and having a tool less chain tension system. The engine is a Stihl 35.2 cc engine that produces 1.7 kW / 2.3 hp. It’s not too heavy either as it weighs 4.6 kg. As with all the Stihl chainsaws, it is on display in our store in Swadlincote.

The C-BE version means that the chainsaw has both Stihl Ergostart and the Stihl quick chain tensioning system. Stihl Ergostart halves the force required to start the engine and reduces the speed at which the starter cord must be pulled. The Stihl quick chain tensioning system allows you do not need any tools to re-tension the chain when out in the field.

The chainsaw features the environmentally friendly Stihl 2-MIX engine which provides plenty of torque and yet save around 20 percent on fuel compared to standard Stihl 2-stroke engines. The chainsaw will be assembled and tested in our Swadlincote store by our Stihl approved team. We will also show you how to use your chainsaw.

Here are some of the features of the Stihl MS 211 C-BE in detail:

Stihl MS211 C-BE Features

Advanced combustion technology – the fuel-air mix is swirled before ignition allowing for optimum combustion

Anti-vibration system – an effective anti-vibration system which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

Pre-separation air filtration system – long-life air filtration system with pre-separation

Compensator – This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged.

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{d09b12be51a7a6a48787a7bc3312473190ccc1fdbfe07795db7f7cb91fdca1cd}.

STIHL ErgoStart (E) – A genuine advance in easy starting. STIHL ErgoStart (E) cuts 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) – After releasing the sprocket cover the chain can be adjusted using a thumb wheel without the need for tools.

Tool free filler caps – Special catches on the fuel and oil tanks for easy opening and locking without the need for tools.

You can see all of our Stihl chainsaws, or see the normal Stihl MS211 or the slightly larger Stihl MS231.


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.

The Stihl MS211 C-BE is on display in our store in Swadlincote and we are open 7 days a week. For more information you can refer to the Stihl owner’s hand book.
