SOURCE: Chain Saw, Stihl Model 011, cutting off

I've been messin with my poulan 2150 that was doing the same thing. Good, fresh gas, good spark,etc. I noticed whenever I loosened the fuel cap it would literally spray gas out! alas, I removed the muiffler assy and the darn thing fired up the first pull! I've got the muffler parts soaking in gas right now and I'm sure this the problem. It just makes sense especially if you use the same 'mixed fuel' can for weed eater, blower,etc. Check your's out, it could very well be your problem too! GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: stihl ms170 keep running in off position

Remove the cover and on the multifunction switch there is a wire with a metal connector on it in the multifuntion switch that when in the off possition needs to make contact with the metal contact that is mounted to the houseing and extends to right above the multifuntion switch usually they get stuck under the switch instead of on top of it.

What is the best chainsaw for a female to use, need easy start, no electrical?


None, they are too dangerous. You need strong arms in case of kick back.

But if you must, a national and well known brand like Stihl or Husquvarna. The Stihl MS170 might suit you.

"I am very satisfied with every aspect of this saw and love how light weight it is. It starts easily and runs great. I have cut up to 16 inch diameter oak, and it did a great job, considering the size of the saw. The local dealer was very knowledgeable and very helpful."

-Dick44

The STIHL MS 170 is the perfect lightweight chainsaw for homeowners seeking a great value. Compact, lightweight with just the right amount of power, the MS 170 makes quick work of trimming or cutting small trees, fallen limbs after a storm, and other tasks around the yard. And even at its great price, the MS 170 has many of the same design features the professionals depend on.

Please make sure you also get the safety gear. Vibration proof gloves to stop 'white finger', hard hat, visor, ear defenders, and most importantly chainsaw pants which has carbon fibres to jam the chain rather than cutting your leg off.

Chain saw dies when cutting into wood


Is the saw oiling correctly? need to check the RPM's at full throttle with bar and chain on to see if it is running right with a tachometer. I suggest taking it to a dealer to have them do the STIHL Engine Check List to determine the exact cause

How do I replace the oil pump on a Stihl MS170 chainsaw


The oil pump is pressed in from the bottom. There is a special bolt and bracket to make sure the pump is set to the right depth. Your local dealer should bea able to get the tool for you but it will be cheaper to have the shop do the work.

PS it is more common on this saw to have a dull chain act like it is not getting enough oil than to have a bad oiler.
I am gold certified and have been doing repairs since before the ms series. I have only replaced two oilers in that time.

Good luck
