  • STIHL M-Tronic™ 
    This product features M-Tronic™ (M) - a new generation of Intelligent Engine Management that eliminates the low and high speed carburetor adjustment screws, compensates for dirty air filter and changes in elevation and fuel quality for optimum engine power at all times.

    More information

  • Pre-Separation Air Filtration System
    This time-saving technology boosts the efficiency of the engine’s filter system, doubling the time between air filter cleanings. Air drawn into the engine is first separated via centrifugal force, ejecting the heavier dirt particles before being routed to the air filter. This pre-separation means less dirt to be captured by the air filter, resulting in less frequent cleaning and maintenance.

    More information

  • Anti-Vibration System
    STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
  • Decompression Valve
    The decompression valve, also referred to as 'deco' or 'deco valve', vents compression in the cylinder for easier starting. The decompression valve temporarily reduces the compression in the combustion chamber during cranking and helps reduce the effort needed to pull the starter rope. It is opened manually and closes automatically as soon as the engine fires.
  • Side-Access Chain Tensioner
    The side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw.
  • Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers
    Simply lift the lever and twist the caps to remove or tighten. There‘s no need to use a tool to tighten or loosen.

Important Information

WARNING! The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw. STIHL uses a green and yellow color-coding system to help you select a powerhead, bar and chain combination that complies with the kickback requirements of ANSI Standard B175.1 (gasoline-powered saws) and §30 of UL 1662/ ANSI Standard B175.1 (electric chainsaws). Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus (Q) additional chain braking feature, STIHL reduced kickback bars and STIHL low-kickback saw chains.

STIHL recommends the use of green reduced kickback bars and green low kickback chains on all STIHL chainsaws.

WARNING! Improper use of any power tool may cause serious or fatal injury. Read, understand and follow carefully the operating and safety instructions in your instruction manual before using such products.

STIHL products sold through U.S. STIHL Dealers are for distribution in the United States only.

Reviews

MS 241 C-M is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top saw in its class After testing all of the professional saws in the 40cc range, I found this to be the overall best one currently available in North America. The M-Tronic carburetor adjusts perfectly when using the saw at sea level or high altitude, saving the time and trouble of having to manually adjust it at different altitudes. Additionally, this saw is light, maneuverable, and cuts great with plenty of power. The MS 241 would be the perfect saw for homeowners and occasional users for all the above reasons, and of course having a STIHL dealer vs. buying some inferior product at one of the big box stores--with no meaningful product support or service.Even though Stihl will never get me away from my 372XP, they've created a slam dunk winner of a saw with the MS 241 C-M. nice job STIHL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I hoped for! Researched this saw for a long time before purchasing in summer of 2016. It's a true workhorse in a light, very powerful platform. I wanted a smaller saw to accompany my 361, but I end up turning to it all the time. It is a pretty amazing little saw. Never fails to start, very dependable, and comfortable to use. I think its a hidden gem in the pro series line up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw Just took my new saw out today for first time .I was really pleased with this saw.The power to weight ratio is great.Saw starts easily. Cuts through red oak like a knife through hot butter. I am very happy that I can buy a quality product like this and keep my fellow Virginians working

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight saw! Have been “home” cutting for years. Both for firewood for heat and keeping the property neat. Have a PM610 that I bought new. It still cuts great, but needed something lighter, that was reliable and powerful. The MS 241 met those requirements. The self-oiling chain and compression release are nice features. The electronic controlled carb is great with me living over 7000 ft above sea level. It is easy to start, cuts great and at 10 lbs is easy on my back. I look forward to enjoying the Stihl reputation with this saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only stihl saw I ever liked My dad bought me this saw as in addition to my landscaping business. I use it all the time but it still does not compare to other competitor brands. The power is too low and stalls in Bigwood. I would recommend this product to any arborist as long as they aren't cutting too big of wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to saw I heat my home and water with an outdoor wood boiler and also sell firewood during the heating season. I have had this saw for 3 years now and with only changing the spark plug, fuel filter, and air filter each year I have had no problems with it. I use my MS 440 for falling and trunking and this saw for everything else. I would recommend this saw to anyone.
