An innovative cordless chainsaw, with excellent cutting power.

This saw meets even the highest demands for performance and working comfort. With a 12 inch / 30 cm bar length and sold as a shell only, you will need to purchase a battery and charger to be able to use the machine.

Excellent cutting performance

The MSA 160 C-BQ uses a new, low-vibration, low-kickback 1/4 inch PM3 saw chain, which, when combined with the 12 inch guide bar, allows you to cut branches and small trees with a maximum diameter of 20 cm. It is an ideal saw for property maintenance, horticulture, cutting firewood and sawing work in enclosed areas, thanks to its outstanding performance and comfortable operation.

Simple, comfortable operation

Two operating handles make handling this machine simple, with one ergonomically shaped and the other a rear control handle with a comfortable soft grip, providing excellent safety in all working conditions. This model also uses STIHL's Quick Chain Tensioning, which allows you to easily adjust the chain tension by releasing the sprocket cover and turning the knob, with no tools required. Weighing just 3.1kg (excluding battery) and with low noise and vibrations, the MSA 160 C-BQ is a great tool to work with.

Embrace cordless efficiency & convenience

STIHL's electric motor that powers this machine is extremely energy efficient, lightweight and compact, running quietly with very low vibrations and no need for servicing. Without having to deal with petrol fumes, complicated starting, loud operating noise and expensive maintenance, you will really appreciate the freedom these tools can provide. As this is supplied as a shell only, you will need to purchase a battery and charger separately.

Please note: This is for the shell only. Battery and charger sold separately.
