Very lightweight, professional cordless arborist saw for use in noise-sensitive areas. Thanks to its powerful engine and a chain speed of 16 m/s (40% higher than its predecessor the MSA 160 T), the MSA 161 T also accelerates very rapidly and delivers fine, extremely precise cutting. The saw comes with a high-quality ¼” P cutting attachment and captive nut on the sprocket cover as standard.
Side chain tensioner: The tensioning screw can be found on the side of the chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.
QuickStop Super Chain Brake (Q): The additional braking system for extra safety. Users can trigger the chain brake directly at the rear handle. The chain stops in seconds whenever the user lets go of the rear handle and whenever there is sufficiently strong kickback or when the front hand guard is activated. This unique safety feature ensures even more user protection in all working positions.
Toolless filler cap: The tank can be filled quickly and easily using the toolless filler cap.
STIHL Electric Motor (EC): The STIHL electric motor (EC) is extremely energy efficient, lightweight and compact. It runs quietly, generates very low vibrations and does not require servicing.
Brake lever with improved catch: Ensures clear tactile feedback at chain brake attachment or removal.
New operating concept: With lock button on the side and extended throttle trigger lockout, the new operating concept makes the saw even more comfortable to use
