MSA 200 C-BQ

MSA 200 C-BQ
A more powerful, more capable Lithium-Ion chainsaw – ideal for noise restricted areas. Batteries & chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.

Product Description

No pulling on cords, fuel mixing or complicated startup procedures. With the MSA 200 C-BQ chainsaw, just squeeze the trigger and start cutting. In addition to easy starting, our Lithium-Ion tools produce zero exhaust emissions and are quieter than their gasoline-powered counterparts, making them an ideal choice for areas with emission or noise restrictions. Powered by an interchangeable 36-volt STIHL Lithium-Ion battery, this chainsaw delivers the speed, cutting capacity, and run time to take on just about any cutting job on your property. The STIHL MSA 200 C-BQ is a cordless chainsaw tough enough to carry the name STIHL.

Batteries & chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool. The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length based on which powerhead it is installed on. Run time may vary based on battery type, charge level and capacity, model, operating style and conditions.

  • STIHL Quickstop® Plus (Q) - an additional chain braking feature
    STIHL offers an additional, manually-activated chain brake on some models. This system is designed to engage when the operator’s right hand completely releases the rear handle, stopping the chain within one second. Available on some models.

  • STIHL Electric Motor
    Lightweight and compact, STIHL electric motors require minimal maintenance and feature low noise levels and reduced vibration.
  • Ematic™ Lubrication System
    The Ematic™ guide bar, when used with STIHL OILOMATIC® saw chain, will provide proper lubrication and less oil consumption than conventional methods. The system works because two ramps, strategically placed in the guide bar rail, help contain the flow of oil and direct all lubrication to the sliding faces of the bar and chain links as well as the rivets and driver holes, which in turn can reduce bar oil consumption up to 50%.
  • Coast-down Brake
    A controlled braking device (Q) to stop the rotating chain when the trigger is released.
  • Quick Chain Adjuster (QCA) (B)
    The Quick Chain Adjuster (QCA) (B) allows the user to adjust the tension of the chain without the use of tools. This allows for easy chain adjustment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the thing for light work We recently bought a piece of property that had been logged about 10 years ago, so the re-planted trees aren't that big yet. But there is a lot of downed wood and we wanted to make a path through the underbrush. The battery powered saw is perfect; lightweight, but cuts very well. Bought an extra battery so we don't have to stop in the middle of the 20 acres and work our way back up to the house. I'm disabled and my wife is pretty small, so this works great for both of us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product from a Sceptic First off. I have owned several Stihl products and have loved the quality and performance of all of them. Now for the good stuff. This is my first electric battery powered chainsaw. I was a huge sceptic at first, knowing that I needed a new chainsaw, but was afraid to venture out to something with new technology. The weight is fabulous! Very light and very nimble. I opted for a 14" blade which does all of my yard work and most of my 4-Wheeling downed trees across the trail. The power is something considerable to a 300 series gas when in altitude except there is no loss of HP even at 11,000 ft! The batteries tend to last about 30-40 mins when constantly cutting but will last me all day when working outside. I carry 2 batteries and charges take a little over an hour each from dead. I would recommend 3 batteries if your going to cut non-stop all day so they each have time to charge. One note on the batteries though, is that 3 or 4 bars equals full power but 1-2 has limited torque and can only be used for cutting small branches, etc. The best part of the saw is the ability to just pick it up and cut...then set right back down...no starting or yanking the cord constantly and shutting off or waiting to warm up. My only real complaint is that I wish they made a slightly bigger saw for larger trees with a 16" or 18" bar but so far...I have only ran into needing a larger blade once. I also wish I had a better selection of chains to choose from as there is only one. If does cut very fine and sometimes I need a chipper.Overall. I would say, buy this saw if you want to carry on your ATV or Jeep or need a small saw for working around your property.(No keeping extra fuel onboard and risk of leakage). I would not buy this for a primary wood cutting saw but everything else. Ill leave those days to my 460!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful little saw I've had this only for a little while. So far done trimming of saplings in the yard. Easy to get down close to the ground. I think that it will be essential to have the 300 battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Chain Saw. First off, It's a really great saw. I use the ap300 battery with it. I've used it on small and big projects. Recently helped build a fence with this saw. Cut 36 6x6 fence post tops and about 30 1x6 boards and it still had 50% charge! No, it's not gonna cut down 3 or 4-foot wide trees all day. Yet it's 'still' a really good saw for trimming and felling anything under 25-30 inches. The only thing that I wish was better is the bar length. 14 inches is the maximum length for Stihl. If it was maybe say, 18in, then it would be the perfect saw.
