  • Zoom
    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.
  • Zoom
    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.

    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.

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.

Are You Ready for a STIHL?

MS 241 C-M is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect all around - light weight saw for homeowners After much research, I recently purchased a MS 241 C-M with the 16" bar for a homeowner saw and am very glad that I did. This saw may cost a bit more than your average homeowner saw, but I believe it to be money well spent. And the more I use it, the more convinced I become. I'm only through my 6th tank of fuel with it, so I haven't had it long enough to speak to it's long term reliability. But so far, I couldn't be more pleased with it. Starting this saw is effortless. It starts with one to three pulls when cold, and then with one pull (every time) after that. It's very light, maneuverable, cuts great with plenty of power to spare, and it's fun to use. It's perfect for trimming and felling small to moderate sized trees. And although I'm confident that this saw is more than capable of felling larger trees, at my age and skill level they're best left to the professional. I consider the MS 241 C-M to be a perfect all around saw for homeowners. So, if you're a homeowner looking for a high quality, light weight, easy to use saw, with enough power to handle most anything you that you will need to throw at it, buy a MS 241 C-M. You will not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chainsaw I had two Poulan Chainsaws in the past and they just could not handle it; were getting bogged down, hard to start and quit on me several times. I decided to upgrade and got the STIHL MS 241 C, and I am glad I did. This saw is powerful, light and cuts through trees like they are butter. I needed to clear 15 medium size trees, cut them up and haul them away. This saw works like a dream and made the job a lot easier. There is plenty of power to easily handle the 18" bar and the saw never bogs down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size and weight Just the saw I need for my liming and bucking needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little workhouse saw I have 10 acres to maintain. I wanted something lighter for clearing good size fallen limbs/canopy cleanup. I also needed a more dependable starting saw. This is it.This saw also cuts like butter and doesn't feel under powered at all. Great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy start Little srtange to get started but easier to start once I change how I was doing it . Cuts well Price seams high compared to other saws , will see if extra money is woth it in long haul . so far happy with it and did by pemixed fuel for extra warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little saw! I needed a small, professional series saw for logging out trails and clearing fences. After having a baby the old 026 was feeling pretty heavy, but I can pack this around a fenceline and it has all the power I need. My coworker laughed at it at first--now it's the one he reaches for, and the 360 stays in the shop. This is the second year I've had it, and I love how it fires up every time. (And I'm not that strong anymore!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chainsaw Great chainsaw. The easiest chainsaw I have ever started!!!!! I have never had to pull the cord more than three times to start. I have used it to take out 10 trees so far and not a single problem. Had to have chains sharpened. I can't recommend this enough. I have owned six other saws (Not Stihl) and this one is by far the best.
Date published: 2017-03-29
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!
