The Number 1 Chainsaw brand's proven know-how has gone into the new STIHL cordless Chainsaw, along with innovative electric motor and battery technology. The Chainsaw thus provides powerful cutting-edge technology in top-class STIHL quality, in every detail. These features make sawing jobs comfortable, quiet and clean as well as reducing operator fatigue.
160 Wh Lithium Ion Battery
The powerful lithium ion battery with a 160 Wh energy storage capacity works with the EC motor to give the cordless Chainsaw a long running time and correspondingly high cutting performance – up to 35 minutes or 150 cuts in square spruce timber (10 x 10 cm)*. Straightforward release system for quick battery changing.
* The cordless Chainsaw's cutting performance depends on the individual operator.
New and exclusively from STIHL: 1/4" Picco Micro 3 (PM3) saw chain
This low kickback, low vibration saw chain has been developed specially for light, compact Chainsaws. It combines great cutting power with high cut quality and operator comfort. This is the result of its flat, narrow shape combined with the small chain pitch.
The motor housing has smooth surfaces and rounded edges to prevent snagging on the machine or catching on branches. The Chainsaw repels most dirt and is easy to clean.
Front Hand Guard
Like all STIHL Chainsaws the MSA 160 C-BQ has a front hand guard mounted on dual ball bearings. Actively squeezing the front hand guard applies the chain brake manually, thus preventing unintentional chain movement.
