MS161T and MS161 C-B require an extra drive link.

Recommended Posts

The smaller top handled and battery saws are all mainly excellent but the chain and bar combos they run are getting harder to understand by the day!


Latest is the MSA161T and MSA161 C-B which sport a 10 tooth drive sprocket [assuming this is for extra chain speed]. But the disadvantage is this means you have to use a chain with an extra drive link over and above what is listed on the bar.


8" - usually 50 drive links = 51 drive links for the MSA161

10" - usually 56 drive links = 57 drive links for the MSA161 etc etc


We've set this up on chainsawbars to reflect this and a short video here:
