Features

MS 881

Standard features

  • HD2 filter Zoom
    HD2 filter

    The HD2 filter is made from polyethylene filter material with up to 70% finer pores than fleece and polyamide filters to trap even very fine dust. In addition, it is oil and water-repellent and thus very easy to clean. The PET-covered filter cartridge with quick-release lock enables the filter to be assembled and disassembled in next to no time, without using tools.

  • Decompression valve Zoom
    Decompression valve

    The decompression valve is part of the easy starting system. The valve should be pressed before starting to reduce the compression pressure when starting, as well as reducing the effort needed to pull the starter rope. The decompression valve is semi-automatic; it must be pressed manually before starting, but then closes automatically.

  • STIHL ElastoStart Zoom
    STIHL ElastoStart

    STIHL ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. The compression shock is taken away from the user's joints and muscles through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle.

  • Side chain tensioner Zoom
    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.

  • Variable-displacement oil pump Zoom
    Variable-displacement oil pump

    Allows a precise, demand-based delivery of oil. It's possible to reduce oil production by up to 50% in the E position. For very long cutting attachments or very dry wood, an additional volume of oil can be added by the user. similar to illustration.

  • Tool free filler caps Zoom
    Tool free filler caps

    Special catches on the fuel and oil tanks for easy opening and locking without the need for tools.

  • Anti-vibration system Zoom
    Anti-vibration system

    Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

  • Single-lever master control Zoom
    Single-lever master control

    All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.

  • Compensator Zoom
    Compensator

    This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.

  • Ematic chain lubrication system Zoom
    Ematic chain lubrication system

    The Ematic chain lubrication system ensures pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails. When used with STIHL OILOMATIC saw chain, it will provide maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication. The Ematic system can reduce bar oil consumption by up to 50%.

  • Carburettor heating (V) Zoom
    Carburettor heating (V)

    By changing the chain saw from summer to winter operation, the intake air is pre-heated over the engine fins. This ensures that the carburettor does not ice up and you can continue working in freezing temperatures.

Cutting Attachments

    • Rollomatic ES .404 Zoom
      Rollomatic ES .404"

      The STIHL Rollomatic ES (STIHL Ematic Super) is composed of a solid and particuarly rigid bar with a bar nose which can be replaced entirely. It is therefore ideal for most demanding professional tasks and is used chiefly on heavy duty machines for felling and bucking. Elliptically fomed, angled oil holes increase the flow speed of the chain oil, delivering optimal lubrication and even longer service life for the guide bar.
