Stihl MSA 161 T Cordless Chainsaw (Shell only)

Stihl MSA 161 T Cordless Chainsaw (Shell only)


The Stihl MSA 161 T battery-operated top handle chainsaw designed for professional tree maintenance. It offers all the features needed by a trained arborist: consistently high performance, the greatest possibly energy efficiency, and the best possible ergonomics and flexibility in use.

This light weight chainsaw features a 40% higher chain speed and 15% increase in motor performance over its predecessor, the MSA 160 T.

The low profile, ¼ P chain reduces chain chatter for a smooth and precise finish. The battery-powered chainsaw features a trigger side-lock button for added safety, a large throttle interlock lever and carrying ring for attaching the saw for aerial use.

The cordless nature of the new saw means that the MSA 161 T is so quiet in operation that ear defenders are not required while working.

With a run time of up to 42 minutes with the AP 200 battery.

Please Note: For purchase by certified arborists only, you will need to produce a climbing license.
