The Stihl MSA 140 C-B Cordless Chainsaw is a perfect tool for pruning branches and cutting firewood, the MSA 140 C-B has all the features of the MSA 120 C-B with up to 25% more cutting performance. Powered by a maintenance-free EC motor and 36 V Lithium-Ion technology, this compact saw will ease its way through sawing jobs around the garden and property.

Weighing in at a low 2.6 kg and perfectly balanced, the chainsaw is comfortable to handle, even for extended periods. The Quick Chain Tensioning system allows for tool-less and hassle-free tightening of the chain. Simple operating controls make this a versatile choice for all users. The saw also features a soft-grip handle, a QuickStop Super chain brake and a transparent oil tank with viewing window. The high cutting performance and precise finish is due to a 1/4″ PM3 saw chain.

Quiet technology
The STIHL Compact Cordless System tools are so quiet you don’t even need to wear ear protection.

STIHL Quick Chain Tensioning (B)
The STIHL Quick Chain Tensioning system (B) makes it very easy to tension the chain. Simply release the sprocket cover and turn the thumbwheel to set the optimum tension. No tools needed.

STIHL Electric Motor (EC)
The STIHL electric motor (EC) is extremely energy efficient, lightweight and compact. It runs quietly, generates very low vibrations and does not require servicing.

Ematic chain lubrication system
The STIHL Ematic chain lubrication system provides maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication. The oil consumption can therefore be reduced by up to 50%.

QuickStop Super Chain brake (Q)
The additional braking system for increased safety, designed by STIHL. The chain does not only stop if kickback is sufficiently strong or during active actuation of the front handguard, but also when you release the rear handle. Chain over run is stopped within seconds, helping to protect the user.

Neutral battery position
The battery can be inserted into the tool in 2 stages. In the first neutral position, the battery is secured in the tool but does not connect with the contacts, allowing for safe transport. In the second operating position, the battery is completely inserted allowing for full operation of the tool.

Transparent chain oil tank
The transparent tank allows the chain oil level to be easily checked without having to remove the oil filler cap.

Comfortable control handle
The soft black rear control handle ensures a safe and secure grip when in use. The control lever features an interlock system for added safety.

Designed for comfort
The ergonomically shaped front handle and soft rear control handle allow for a comfortable and stable grip in all working positions.

8 reviews for Stihl MSA 140 C-B Cordless Chainsaw 12″ (Unit Only)

  1. Denis Oram (verified owner)

    An excellent piece of kit and at a good price from this site. Handles beautifully and is very light, so not much strain to use. Very satisfied. PS I rarely give five stars because that accolade cannot be bettered! This just did!

  2. Ian (verified owner)

    An excellent piece of kit. Great to have a small saw that can be used where no mains power is available but without all the problems of small petrol engines. I also have a lawnmower that shares the same battery which kept the overall costs within reason for top quality equipment. Delighted with this tool.

  3. Ben (verified owner)

    This was the cheapest price I could find for this chainsaw. After cutting 25 cm diameter black birch logs with ease I am very impressed with this saw. These logs are heavy, hard wood and I was expecting more resistance. I would have liked the model above purely for more power (to make me feel like a big man) but in hindsight this would have been unnecessary as this saw will more than fulfill my needs. An excellent bit of kit. Only 4 stars given as I’m not convinced I’m getting 45 minutes of continuous cutting, as claimed by Stihl, from a single charge. Although I have been cutting hardwood so time will tell as I move onto softer pine.

  4. Mark Davis (verified owner)

    Very pleased with the purchase of this item. Assembly was straight forward. Worked perfectly after charging the battery as is required. 1st class service from Radmore & Tucker as was also the case from previous purchases. Would not hesitate to buy from them again.

  5. Mrs Jean Jenkins (verified owner)

    A great saw. Light enough for me, a 70 year old to use. Easier to use compared to a petrol one. Very good delivery service – to my Devon address

  6. John Morton (verified owner)

    Brilliant chainsaw for occasional domestic use. Light and well balanced. Currently using with AK20 batteries I already had for hedge trimmer. Be careful filling with chain oil. Gently does it, it doesn’t take much as I found out the hard way :-)
    Radmore and Tucker’s price lowest I could find by some way. They are an approved Stihl dealer, they use, in my view the best courier in the UK, DPD. Chainsaw arrived the day after ordering. Brilliant product, brilliant price and brilliant service. No doubt in giving 5 stars.

  7. Robin Borton (verified owner)

    Very good little saw, powerful and light to use and buy the larger battery it’s worth the extra
    Very speedy delivery too and very competitively priced …. what’s not to like.

  8. Alan Webster

    Much lighter and far quieter than my petrol chainsaw. Much easier to chain tension too and no messing about with carb adjustment screws. The blade is very sharp and cuts through timber like butter. Can’t fault it though not ideal for very large trees as it only has a 12′ bar. I highly recommend it to anyone for light work and occasional use.
