sthil ms 261

Recommended Posts


400 grams heavier is fine.

Remember it has reduced vibes, 20% improvement on fuel efficiency, 40% less emmissions and a third of a horse more powerful!

Just upgraded to an MS261 from a non-pro saw and the difference is vast.


Only had a couple of tanks full through it so far, but it seems strong, smooth and almost none of the normal 2 stroke stink. Great torque. Even if you burry the bar, the revs drop a wee bit then it just settles down and cuts.


Not quite a manic as the 346.


Go for it...
