STILH was good enough to send out there California rep Kevin to drop off and make me a little more knowledgeable about STILH products. He went over some the history of STILH and the chainsaw it self, which was really interesting to know and that's when he pulled out the MS 210C along with some safety equipment which he also properly introduced me to as well STILH is a company that firmly believes that some common sense and the proper safety gear you can be cutting fire wood and clearing land in no time without ending up in the ER at your local county general.
Following the success of the STIHL Easy2Start system on the STIHL HomeScaper Series of landscaping tools, STIHL began using the innovative starting system is now available on the MS 210 C chain saw too. The first time I saw him start it without barely a tug I was blown away, I mean through the years I had my share of experience with pull starting a fair number of things and let me tell you there are a few of those that had my arms about ready to fall off from exhaustion while all the time getting no more than the tiniest of pops
Whether cutting firewood or felling small trees, the MS 210 C is an ideal chain saw for homeowners and occasional users. With the new Easy2Start system, these jobs can be completed easier right from the start.
Engine compression has to be overcome when starting a chain saw with a standard starting system. With the STIHL Easy2Start system, all that is needed is a smooth and gentle pull on the starter rope ' quot; Easy2Start takes care of the rest, requiring 50 percent less force and 60 percent less speed for the engine to start reliably. And it also reduces resistance and jerks felt as compression is created in the engine's cylinder.
Other MS 210 C standard features include a Quick Chain Adjuster, tool-less fuel and oil caps with retainers, a carburetor preheat shutter for summer and winter operation, and the STIHL Quickstop® chain braking system, designed to reduce the risk of injury in certain kickback situations.
Optional features available include STIHL's comfortable ElastoStart'¢ starting grip with built-in shock absorber, a 14' guide bar, and a STIHL Picco'¢ Micro'¢ chain.
