The STIHL MS 881 stands as a true powerhouse, delivering an impressive 6.4 kW (8.7 hp) output. It proudly holds the title of housing the most potent STIHL 2-MIX engine across the entire STIHL chainsaw lineup and is recognized as the world's most formidable chainsaw in series production. This chainsaw has been meticulously crafted with the specific needs of forestry professionals and sawmill experts in mind, excelling in tasks such as felling, precise cutting to length, and longitudinal sawing.

Safety and user-friendliness are paramount in its design. The STIHL MS 881 petrol chainsaw ensures effortless starting with features like the decompression valve and STIHL ElastoStart. The convenience of a single-lever master control places all essential functions at your fingertips, allowing your right hand to remain firmly on the handle. Furthermore, the STIHL anti-vibration system expertly minimizes handle vibrations, safeguarding your muscles and joints from strain.

Enhancing its functionality, the polyethylene HD2 air filter efficiently captures even the finest dust particles, preserving the engine's cleanliness. Maintenance is a breeze, as the filter can be easily cleaned and replaced without the need for additional tools. The thoughtfully positioned chain tensioning screw on the side prevents potential contact between your hand and the saw chain or claw stop. With a stop button for straightforward shutdown, the STIHL MS 881 returns promptly to the starting position once stopped, ensuring a hassle-free and swift restart when needed.
