The convenient MSA 161 T special cordless chain saw sets new standards in the field of professional tree maintenance. Thanks to its weight of 2.1 kg (4.6 lb), it facilitates both an ergonomic working position and a high level of agility when the job entails climbing or working from a bucket truck. The MSA 161 T, with state-of-the-art STIHL battery technology, allows quiet and emission-free working at the touch of a button. It is ideal for use in noise-sensitive areas and ear protection is not required.
The additional braking 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 unique safety feature ensures even more user protection in all working positions.
