Stihl ms 880 discontinued?

Recommended Posts

I am new to this forum. 
Just thought I would see if I am right in what I have heard....

Today I purchase a new STIHL ms 880. The rep who I deal with said he couldn’t find it in the 2020 catalogue. I then went online to a website and it said ‘discontinued’ So it appears to be true the 880 is going!? Emissions I heard?

A theoretical replacement for the 880 is in field testing/development stage at the moment .....

Discontinued for European emissions regulations is what I heard.
Biggest Saw available new is a stihl 661 I believe.

You were lucky to find one from a dealer.

If you're lucky you might find a uk dealer who has an 880 left.
Or can get one in from somewhere.
Ask your local stihl guys.
