Selection AP System Chainsaws

NEWMSA 300 Cordless Chainsaw

STIHL's most powerful cordless chainsaw, designed for demanding professional use

Overview

STIHL's most powerful cordless chainsaw, designed for demanding professional use. Three available operating modes enable optimum battery efficiency across a range of applications such as felling, delimbing and cutting to length. Highly ergonomic and comfortable to use over longer periods of work thanks to a compact, balanced design and the STIHL anti-vibration system. The LED display allows for intuitive operation, giving the user notifications on oil level, chain brake position and power setting. Mounting point for the STIHL Smart Connector 2 A on the power tool housing. Other features include integrated cooling air filters, captive nut on the sprocket cover, an adjustable oil pump and .325" – RS Pro saw chain for excellent cutting performance.

Designed to only be used with the AP 500 S - the most powerful AP battery from STIHL.

AP 500 S features power laminate technology which means it has double the number of charging cycles of a typical STIHL AP system battery with cylindrical cells. Approximately 253 charging cycles per year (253 working days, excluding weekends and bank holidays in UK) means the battery will last close to 10 years without the typical capacity loss of the battery cells. Integrated Bluetooth® interface for STIHL connected allows the battery to be managed like a power tool.

Features

MSA 300

Standard features

  • Intuitive controls and a bright LED display Zoom
    Intuitive controls and a bright LED display

    The MSA 300 features intuitive controls and a bright LED display. Three speed settings limit the chain speed to 20, 24 or 30 m/s, meaning the user can maximise battery life when completing less intensive tasks such as snedding or brashing. Status of the chain brake and temperature warnings are also displayed in red.

  • Soft grip control handle Zoom
    Soft grip control handle

    Thanks to the soft grip on the control handle, the MSA 300 sits comfortably in the hand and can be operated safely. In addition, the users grip is improved by the soft material, which helps when using the MSA 300 in wet conditions.

  • Fleece filter Zoom
    Fleece filter

    The fleece filter in our new MSA 300 guarantees consistent performance – even in extreme conditions. Its extraordinarily finepored filter material keeps even very fine dust and dirt away from the power electronics and electric motor. To clean it, remove the fleece filter and spray it with STIHL Varioclean, briefly leaving it to work before rinsing out with warm water and letting the filter dry. Then it is ready to use again.

  • Two-handled operation Zoom
    Two-handled operation

    The ergonomically shaped handle and rear control handle with comfortable soft-grip component ensure safe working in all operating positions.

    • Light 04 Zoom
      Light 04

      The Light 04 is the first STIHL guide bar model to feature this new name and innovative design. The new Light 04 features a special construction that means you benefit from improved balance and therefore less fatigue when sawing, because this tool's slim contour means it weighs up to 200 g less than existing guide bars. The result is easier manoeuvrability during cutting, and agile chainsaw work. And the new design is more than just easy on the eye, as you can also read information about its properties and features directly on the bar. So you can always find the right combination of bar and chain for your STIHL chainsaw.

    • STIHL Smart Connector 2 A Zoom
      NEWSTIHL Smart Connector 2 A

      STIHL connected is a smart fleet management system that enables professional users to digitally manage machine fleets and work assignments.

      Smart Connector 2 A connects directly into the control module of selected professional AP System battery machines. As well as runtime, Smart Connector 2 A also collects information on the operating speed, the status of individual electronic components and ambient temperature. Also features a real time clock, meaning the data is collected accurately regardless of how often the connector syncs with a smartphone, so you can see when and for how long the tool was used. Pressing the button on the Smart Connector 2 A gives a quick indication of the status of the machine via an LED light, and highlights if a maintenance task is due. The LED can also be used in conjunction with the STIHL connected App to identify individual machines (by lighting up a LED on the connector) in large fleets.

      Smart Connector 2 A offers entirely new functions and services, as a basis for device management both in your garden using the STIHL connected App, and for managing your machine fleet using the STIHL connected Portal. The STIHL connected Portal gives you a detailed overview of the status of your fleet of tools, as well as information such as duration of use on a particular work assignment.

      Here’s a few reasons why STIHL connected can help manage your fleet of tools:

      • The Digital Fleet Management keeps a record of all tools and their service record
      • You get prompts when a tool needs servicing, so you never forget to change the plug, filter or just carry out maintenance
      • You can see how many hours a tool has done, so you can plan which tools to use, replace or buy more of
      • At the end of the day, you can open the app and see which tools are next to you so you can tell if something is missing
      • Book a service with your nearest STIHL Approved Dealer and give them access to see what work will be needed in advance.

      STIHL Connected is an intuitive way to manage your machine fleet and workload intelligently and efficiently. Visit: STIHL connected FAQs to find out more.
