Stihl MSA 161 T Chainsaw 12″, tool only


The MSA 161 T is the next generation in cordless top handled chainsaws.  This chainsaw features a 40% higher chain speed and 15% increase in motor performance over its predecessor, the MSA 160 T.

The low profile 1/4 P chain reduces chain chatter for a smooth and precise finish.  To improve safety the MSA 161 T features a new side-lock button, which has to be engaged in order to operate the chainsaw.  For improved handling, the throttle interlock lever has been lengthened to cover a larger part of the handle.  The cordless nature of the new saw means the MSA 161 T is so quiet in operation that ear defenders are not required while working.

Stihl feels that the best service to customers is achieved through face-to-face contact with their local Stihl dealer. This ensures that you are sold the correct machine, with proper instruction, and you are familiar with all the important information regarding the safe operation. Unfortunately, this hand-over policy does not allow us to sell Stihl machines online.
