The MSA 161 T cordless chainsaw: An ideal choice for professional arborists.

This top-handled chainsaw, weighing just 2.5 kg (without the battery), is a favorite among arborists for its lightweight design and powerful engine. With a rapid chain speed of 16 m/s and the precision of the STIHL 1/4'' PM3 saw chain, it excels at making precise cuts. What sets the STIHL MSA 161 T apart is its suitability for noise-sensitive environments, such as residential neighborhoods, schools, or hospitals.

Tensioning the chain is a breeze and can be done safely from the side, avoiding contact with the saw chain. The STIHL QuickStop Super braking system halts the chain within seconds in the event of a kickback or when the rear handle is released. You can also engage or disengage the chain brake using the handguard, which clicks audibly into place.

WARNING: This specialized chainsaw is intended for use by trained tree maintenance professionals only. Operating this tool without proper training may result in serious injury.
