Two of the most popular STIHL chain saws, the STIHL MS 251 WOOD BOSS® and MS 271 FARM BOSS®, are the latest to bear the Boss titles.

“These chain saws are built in America* and include some of our latest innovations,” said Kent Hall, senior product manager at STIHL Inc. “These two hardworking saws have the power and performance features that our customers want, at a price point that fits their budget.”

MS 251 WOOD BOSS®

Power meets high efficiency to make quick work of felling small trees, pruning, thinning and cutting firewood. Packed with 45.6 cc of legendary STIHL quality and dependability, the MS 251 WOOD BOSS® makes work go faster so homeowners and professionals can move on to the next project on their list. Boasting up to 20 percent better fuel efficiency,** this affordably-priced workhorse also saves money at the pump.

Its pre-separation air filtration technology boosts the efficiency of the engine’s filter system resulting in less frequent cleaning and replacement. In cold temperatures, the winter/summer shutter can be switched to “winter” to help the saw operate at optimum temperature and prevent carburetor icing.

MS 271 FARM BOSS®

A true powerhouse, the 50.2 cc MS 271 FARM BOSS® takes charge when it comes time for felling, cutting firewood, or storm cleanup. It tackles cutting jobs with a low-emission, fuel-efficient engine that gets the job done with lower fuel costs. A powerful legend in the making, the FARM BOSS® produces 50 percent lower emissions, reduces fuel consumption and delivers up to 20 percent longer run times on a tank of fuel as compared to similar traditional 2-stroke STIHL chain saws. Its pre-separation air filtration system can extend filter life up to five times longer.

Designed with comfort in mind for farmers, rural landowners, and tree farmers, the FARM BOSS® is equipped with a compact design providing optimum control when working. An advanced anti-vibration system provides comfortable operation and reduces fatigue.
