What do the model numbers on a Stihl Chainsaw mean?
Before 2000, STIHL chainsaw model numbers began with a 0. For example, STIHL carried 017 and 025 model chainsaws. This changed around 2000 when they added MS to the beginning and moved the 0 to the end. The 017 became MS 170, 025 became MS 250, and so on.
