The MSA 161 T is the next generation in cordless top handle chainsaws. This lightweight 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.
This 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, this cordless chainsaw is a perfect addition to the fleet.
The MSA 161 T is part of the AP System PRO Cordless range of tools, with interchangeable batteries – it is not compatible with the AK batteries in the COMPACT AK Cordless System.
- Run time on AP 200 battery: Up to 42 minutes
- Run time on AP 300 battery: Up to 50 minutes
- Run time on AP 300 S battery: Up to 62 minutes
The tensioning screw can be found on the side of the chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.
QuickStop Super Chain Brake (Q)
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 handguard is activated. This unique safety feature ensures even more user protection in all working positions.
New operating system
Side-lock button for increased safety remains locked until this button is pushed in.
Toolless filler cap
The tank can be filled quickly and easily using the toolless filler cap.
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.
Ensures clear feedback when engaging or disengaging the chain brake.
