STIHL MS180 Chainsaw with 14" Bar
The STIHL MS180 Chainsaw with 14" bar is a fantastic compact saw for cutting firewood, domestic pruning and grounds/property maintenance at a great price. This more powerful model has a longer bar and is capable of cutting thicker logs and branches.
The STIHL MS180 Chainsaw is lightweight and well-balanced yet delivers excellent power output (1.4kW/1.9hp) for a chainsaw of its size. It's low-emission STIHL 2-MIX engine is economical as well as being environmentally friendly. The easy-to-use side-mounted chain tensioner provides a simple approach to basic maintenance/adjustment.
The 2 mix engine is extremely economical featuring 1-in-4 channel technology, and offering high torque across a wide speed range. 2 stoke engines without this technology will give up to 20% less fuel economy. In addition to this exhaust emissions are reduced by as much as 50%.
Advanced combustion technology
Before ignition fully occurs, 4 overflow channels mix the fuel and air, giving optimum combustion and maximum efficiency. This will result in lower fuel consumption.
Stihl has developed the anti-vibration system like the one in the MS180 Chainsaw, in order to drastically cut down the risk of the long-term effects on the hands and arms when using machinery which vibrates. It works by damping down the oscillations from the engine of the saw.
The mixture of fuel and air is prevented from getting richer by the controller located in the saws carburettor as the air filter becomes clogged. The quantity of fuel being delivered to the carburettor is distributed according to the amount of air passing through the filter. The ratio of fuel to air is kept consistent, hence the power in the engine. There is no need to clean the filter until a noticeable drop in power becomes evident.
Single-lever master control
There is a single lever system controlling starting of the saw, choke, throttle and stop function.
Side chain tensioner
The chain is tensioned from the side of the saw via the sprocket cover, therefore no contact with the chain is required.
Ematic chain lubrication system
.Stihl's ''Ematic'' lubrication system gives an efficient application of chain oil onto the chainsaw chain and guidebar rails. The system leads to far less oil consumption than other more conventional systems. Infact this system can improve chain oil consumption by as much as 50%!
How to prepare your chainsaw for long periods of storage
Your MS180 chainsaw ( or any other model) may go through long periods of time throughout the year when it is not in use. If not stored correctly this can lead to issues further down the line when the saw is taken out of storage for use again. Watch the instructional video below from Stihl to get tips on how to minimise the risk of any issues arising from long periods of 'downtime'.
- Fill up the chain oil chamber to the top - this will eliminate the possibility of oxidation.
- Completely drain the fuel out of the saw. Stale fuel can cause issues within the machine.
- Once the fuel is drained completely, start the saw and run it until it stops - this will drain any last drops of fuel left in the tank.
- Clean the saw with a suitable cleaner like varioclean, remove any debris or dirt from the body of the chainsaw.
Remember Safety When using a Chainsaw
Always take great care when using chainsaws, as they can lead to serious injury or even death. We sell a great range of chainsaw protective clothing to help keep you safe if something goes wrong.
