How big is a Stihl bar for a MS 170?
What size bar for MS 170? The MS 170 is a small but capable 30 cc homeowner saw. According to the first table, the MS 170 has the small 3005 Stihl mount and will therefore clearly take 3005 mount bars. The second table tells that the MS 170 has a chain pitch of 3/8”P, but the gauge may be either .043” or .050”.
How big are the bars on a Stihl 250?
The MS 250 carries yet another surprise in recommended bar length range: Stihl websites give the range as one length only – 18”. I am uncertain whether this is as intended, since Stihl’s online bar & chain selector tool gives both 16” and 18” bars, and the fairly similar MS 251 with the same power rating is also given a 16” to 18” bar length range.
