Battery Power. Made By STIHL.

Redefined Boundaries with Another First from STIHL

Looking for a saw that combines the power of gasoline with the benefits of battery? Get your hands on the first lithium-ion top-handle chainsaw in the STIHL battery product line. The MSA 161 T provides the lightweight design and quiet performance professional arborists need to tackle in-tree work -- including maintenance and tree surgery -- as well as other cutting work in a wide range of environments. Take a closer look at the saw that allows pros to go higher, cut quicker and get more done than they can with heavier saws. 

 

Low Weight. High Performance. 

With a powerhead that weighs just 4.6 pounds, the MSA 161 T packs pro-grade performance into a lightweight, portable and compact design, giving professional arborists the balance and maneuverability they need for in-tree cutting tasks. 

Quieter Operation

With a lower noise output than its gas-powered counterparts, the MSA 161 T chainsaw makes it easier for in-tree workers to communicate with ground crews. It also allows jobs to start earlier and take place in noise-sensitive areas such as hospitals, schools, and suburbs. 

Real STIHL Innovation

From its game-changing STIHL battery technology to the STIHL exclusive 1/4" STIHL PICCO™ saw chain, this tool leverages cutting-edge STIHL innovation to provide professional arborists with a saw that delivers performance they can depend on.
