STIHL's strongest power saw.
For the most demanding challenges and extreme conditions, the MS 880 is designed to handle big timber harvesting with its robust design. Available with a 30 inch (75 cm), 36 inch (90 cm) or 48 inch (120 cm) bar length.
With a 6.4kW engine, this chainsaw has an excellent power to weight ratio, making it one of the toughest saws on the market and able to cope with the most difficult jobs in the forest. On top of its high power, you can also rely on consistent performance, thanks to a compensator in the carburettor that prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The fuel/air ratio and engine power is maintained, so you only need to clean the filter once a noticeable drop in power takes place.
An easy & efficient tool to work with
Despite its high power, the MS 880 has several features that make it a pleasure to work with. Topping up fuel and oil has the hassle taken out of it, thanks to tool-free filler caps, and the side chain tensioner means adjustments can be made without contact with the saw chain. All of the unit's important functions can be operated using a single lever, reducing fatigue while working, and the HD2 filter not only guards against even very fine dust, but is easy to clean. STIHL's saws also use the Ematic chain lubrication system, which provides pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails, saving up to 50 percent on bar oil consumption.
STIHL have excellent anti-vibration technology that they use in their machines, and the MS 880 is no different. The saw's engine oscillations are dampened so that vibrations at the handles are significantly reduced, while ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. A decompression valve also helps in this regard, while additionally minimising the level of force necessary to pull the starter cord.
