MS 150 C-E

MS 150 C-E
One of the lightest gasoline-powered chainsaws on the market and includes innovative STIHL features.

Product Description

Great things come in small packages. For chainsaws, that means the STIHL MS 150 C-E. This lightweight powerhead weighs only 6.1 pounds and is loaded with exclusive STIHL features, including Easy2Start™ technology. Ideal for landscapers, arborists, tree farmers, or anyone in need of a mobile, low weight saw, the MS 150 C-E chainsaw is easy to handle, resulting in less operator fatigue than heavier saws. Combined with reduced exhaust emissions and enhanced fuel efficiency as compared to traditional 2-stroke engines, this is how ultra-lightweight chainsaws should be made: the STIHL way.

Model Features

  • STIHL Easy2Start™ (E)
    The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products easier. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.

MS 150 C-E is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight chainsaw, Starts flawlessly. would buy another. I love this ultra light weight chainsaw. Runs and starts flawlessly. I have cut down trees up to 10 inches with this chainsaw, Great for pruning or limbing up trees, Once you learn its operating range you will love this little chainsaw. Recently used this saw to help in cleaning up storm damaged trees at my neighbors. This saw out performed every other chainsaw that day. It starts so consistently on the first pull that the guys quit counting at 30 one pull starts without a stall. Can't say enough good things. It is small and if you need a bigger saw then buy one. A 12inch saw can cut down a lot of trees and do a lot of clean up with out having to carry much weight. It is easy to clean and maintain. I do use stihl premix fuel and chain oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to saw for 80% of cuts When clearing trees, this saw gets used most of the time. At 7 pounds, it saves a lot of wear and tear on the back and I can get more done without getting tired. You can cut up to 10 inch logs, but the saw will bog down on the thicker stuff. It’s strength is pruning and trimming. It is work horse and is not a gas guzzler. Can cut for about 45 mins before you need to full up.It is my #1 saw and goes everywhere with me in the truck. Wish I would have bought it sooner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless for hurricane cleanup. Can't start it. We purchased our saw to clean up trees felled by Hurricane Florence. No one can start it it. It simply will not work. And we bought it from Taylor's Do It Center where you can't get your money back. After paying a lot for it you'd think it would at least start. But the same is true for a Stihl weed eater a cousin of mine owns. He can start it after MUCH effort, but I have never succeeded in getting it started. Stihl seems to be prouder of its products than it deserves to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice saw I use it for trimming tree branches and cleaning saplings and brush out of fence lines. A little pricey but after using it is well worth the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It has not worked from the beginning This saw has never worked. I have taken it back to the dealer three or four times without any positive results. I am a retired Wildland Firefighter. I am a certified sawyer. We always used STIHL . I cannot believe this a Stilh saw. I will return it on Monday. I believe that it has a defective carburetor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a champ This chainsaw is great for what I bought it for. I needed a small lightweight chainsaw to take care of some large shrubs and some small trees on my property. It starts up without any problems and has yet to give me an issue after about 8 straight hours of usage. I even tacked a VERY large tree without having to borrow my neighbors larger chainsaw but would not recommend this one for larger trees as it took quite a bit of extra effort. Overall I'm satisfied with the fit, finish, and power of this saw.
