STIHL MSA 161 T 36V Cordless Professional Arborist Chainsaw SKIN ONLY (1252-200-0044)




Very lightweight, professional 36V battery arborist saw for use in noise-sensitive areas. Thanks to its powerful engine and a chain speed of 16 m/s (40% higher than its predecessor the MSA 160 T), the MSA 161 T also accelerates very rapidly and delivers fine, extremely precise cutting. The saw comes with a high-quality ¼” P cutting attachment and captive nut on the sprocket cover as standard.

  • Brake lever with improved catch
    Ensures clear tactile feedback at chain brake attachment or removal.
  • EC motor
    The STIHL EC motor is extremely energy efficient, lightweight and compact. It runs quietly and generates very low vibrations, which ensures you and your machine can work comfortably for prolonged periods of time.
