    More information

  • 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.
  • Quick Chain Adjuster (QCA) (B)
    The Quick Chain Adjuster (QCA) (B) allows the user to adjust the tension of the chain without the use of tools. This allows for easy chain adjustment.

  • IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
    The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the air/fuel ratio when the air filter becomes restricted or partially clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM. IntelliCarb™ uses air from the clean side of the air filter to control the diaphragm and flow of fuel. As the air filter becomes dirty and less air is available for the carburetor, the IntelliCarb™ system adjusts the fuel flow to compensate for the decrease in air flow. This is in contrast to typical carburetors that utilize this air from the “dirty” side of the air box.
  • Winter/Summer Shutter
    The Winter/Summer Shutter allows the carburetor to operate at optimum temperature year-round and helps to prevent carburetor icing when working below 50°F (10°C).

Reviews

MS 211 C-BE is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 163.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw! Picked this saw up to replace a 20yo Craftsman that finally died. Luckily, I was able to use the craftsman case as the Stihl one is way over priced.Saw fires up in two or three pulls, once warmed up cuts like a champ.Bought a maint. kit so I dont have to hunt it down when the time comes. Also got an extra chain. Wanted the heavy duty chain until I saw the shocking price tag. I'll just burn through 6 of the regular chains, as opposed to paying for the HD version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good homeowner's saw This is a good, light weight saw with easy starting and good power. Good power and torque. It handled a 30" diameter tree with no problem. The chain tightening was super easy and the fueling and bar oil reservoirs are easy to access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets my needs perfectly. I like this saw very much, it is lightweight and easy to control. I also really like the easy start which saves my shoulder from pulling too hard on the starting cord.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Handle broke Was disappointed that the bottom spring mount broke and had to replace the entire handle.. I only use 5-10 days per year and am not a heavy user.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again Bought this for the easy start.Every time I go to use I have a problem!Back to the dealer it goes againHave many Stijl products but this by far is the worst!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I bought this song to replace an older one. I had several trees come down during an ice storm and it performed very well. I have two large trees and two smaller trees come down and it cut through very well. I did dull one chain but I bought a spare to finish up.One thing that was annoying is the upper cover seems to come loose every once in a while when I am cutting and I have to push it back into place and slide the locking mechanism back into place.
