Even the toughest pickup truck can use a comfortable seat. The same principle applies to the STIHL MS 250 C-BE chain saw. We took the rough and tough MS 250 and added features that deliver comfort and convenience, including the STIHL Easy2Start™ system that makes starting this saw almost effortless, and our Quick Chain Adjuster that makes adjusting the saw chain even easier. Cut your workload down to size with the MS 250 C-BE.
