STIHL MSA 161 T Top Handle Chainsaw

The Stihl MSA 161 T is a lightweight, specialist chainsaw for trained arborists. With its precise handling & optimum ergonomics, it is perfect for cutting branches and crown reduction. Being a battery powered tool, it is suitable for use in noise-sensitive areas. Working time with the recommended AP200 battery is up to 42 minutes.

The 1/4″ P – Picco Micro 3 (PMS) saw chain makes for a smooth & efficient cut. Includes captive nuts on the sprocket cover. The tensioning screw is accessible through this sprocket cover on the side of the chainsaw. This Side Chain Tensioner eliminates the need for direct contact with the sharp saw chain.

With the QuickStop Super Chain Brake (Q) 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 one-of-a-kind safety element provides even greater user protection in all operating positions.

The STIHL electric motor (EC) is incredibly energy efficient, lightweight and compact. It runs quietly, has extremely little vibrations, and requires no maintenance.
