MSA 161 T Cordless Chainsaw: Top-handle cordless chainsaw for professional use, with a choice of bar lengths

The MSA 161 T is the next generation in cordless top handle chainsaws. This light weight chainsaw features a 40% higher chain speed and 15% increase in motor performance over its predecessor, the MSA 160 T. The low profile, ¼ P chain reduces chain chatter for a smooth and precise finish. The battery-powered chainsaw features a trigger side-lock button for added safety, a large throttle interlock lever and carrying ring for attaching the saw for aerial use. The cordless nature of the new saw means that the MSA 161 T is so quiet in operation that ear defenders are not required while working.

NOTE: For purchase by certified arborists only.

Exterior design of STIHL guide bars are subject to change. Technical specifications remain the same.

You can find videos showing you how to fill your machine with fuel and oil, fit bars and chains and start your chainsaw here.
