A cordless arborist chainsaw for licensed professionals
The MSA 161 T is STIHL's cordless top-handle chainsaw for use by licensed arborists only. This particular model comes with a 12 inch bar and chain. It's a desirable saw offering the highest performance and greatest energy efficiency whilst also giving ultimate flexibility for use.
Superb performance and efficient maintenance
Featuring a powerful but lightweight and extremely efficient electric motor coupled with the smooth and efficient 1/4" PM3 saw chain, the chainsaw gives a consistently high performance every cut. Maintaining the saw has never been easier with features including a side chain tensioner which eliminates contact with the chain itself, and a tool-less filler cap for hassle-free refilling.
Packed full of safety features
A new side-lock button remains locked until the button is engaged for increased safety. A hand guard ensures clear feedback when engaging with the chain brake. The QuickStop Super Chain Brake is an additional braking system for improved safety; the chain stops in a matter of seconds when any of the triggers are activated offering further protection in all working positions, these triggers include: directly at the rear handle, when there is strong kickback, and when the front hand guard is activated.
Reap all the benefits of battery power
Being battery-powered, the MSA 161 T saw has numerous benefits over a petrol/electric machine. For starters, there is no cord to restrict movement or get in the way during use. Operation is much quieter and emits no harmful emissions making it suitable for use anywhere at any time of the day. The chainsaw is also part of STIHL's AP System where one battery conveniently fits into a fleet of machines, which not only is financially beneficial but also space-saving during transport and storage.
Battery and charger sold separately
The MSA 161 T is recommended for use with the AP 200 battery and the AL 300 quick charger, sold separately. However there is the option to choose from other AP batteries and chargers to suit the needs of the user.
N.B. Ron Smith & Co has a duty of care to ensure anyone who purchases a top-handle chainsaw holds a valid climbers license. We will require a copy of your license before collection/dispatch.
