Stihl MS 171 review

Launched Reviewed

Typical price

£210.00

Stihl says that its MS 171 chainsaw is great for occasional use in cutting and trimming around the garden. But for over £200, you'd expect a lot more from a chainsaw. We've tried it out on railway sleepers to see if it's up to larger tasks.
Is it worth your money?
Or is it a waste of cash?
