There is no spec as such although Stihl will probably argue differently. Because the clutch goes on as left handed thread the direction of the motor running means it will tighten the clutch to a suitable torq when the tool is used.

If the silver rating label is still on the safety brake lever, it should be on there. If not, look at teh housing to the left of the exhaust by the 'teeth' on the body, or on the housing below the exhaust. It is normally stamped into the plastic.

SOURCE: chain oiler replacement

If it is Stihl 025 the chain oiler is on the bottom.First check if the worm gear(under the starter)is in good condition.Replace the starter(blocking the piston in the cilinder with a rope with many nods,that rope entering in the sparkplug hole).On the handle there are 4 screws on the right side (under 4 black plastic plugs,at the bottom 2 screws.)CUnlock them and take off the handle.At the bottom you can see the chain oiler( under the hose) the mark for right possition is there.Take off the oiler using a screw(lock clockwise into the oiler)and then pull it out.Clean with compressed air the oil hole.Put back together .Succes!

Brand new stihl ms 170. started ran for 5 min chain came off. stopped put chain on and it won't turn. chain won't slide through the guide in the bar. what is the issue and how do I fix it


if the chain wont slide on the bar id say the bar is damaged now. always check chain tightness before using any saw and make sure you have plenty of bar oil too.

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
Kelseyville, CA

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.

http://www.stihlusa.com/products/chain-saws/homeowner-saws/ms170/

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.

Have a stihl chainsaw that's probably 10 yrs old. Will start ok but the chain won't move when given gas. It revs but won't move.


I guess the first thing to look at is chain free to move ?, do this with saw off ! and not running , if its not free to move give a good look at the chain brake , if chain moves free with a gentle push , then your clutch is in need of replacement good thing as stihl makes parts for there old saws still too , now if your saw was 20 yrs old your clutch is rebuildable

The saw runs but chain doesn't turn and it starts t smoke, is the clutch bad ?


Sounds like you haven't read the manual.! Is the chain brake still on.?? The chainsaw has a centrifugal clutch, the more the saw revs, the harder the clutch grips. Sounds like you have the chain brake applied and the clutch is trying to turn the drum which is being held by the brake band

Ms 170 leaks bar chain oil out bottom, no oil on chain


Your clutch drum bearing has gone bad, letting the clutch drum to move around and cut into the oiler behind it, so now it just pumps the oil out that hole. You have to get that fixed to use the saw, otherwise you're going to cause catastrophic damage to the saw very soon.
