    STIHL has launched a new cordless arborist saw that offers professionals an enhanced cutting performance through the use of a higher chain speed and a more powerful motor. 


    Introduced to supersede the popular MSA 160 T, the new lightweight saw boasts a 40% higher chain speed (16 m/s) and a 15% increase in engine performance, making the MSA 161 T ideal for removing deadwood, crown maintenance and light reductions. 


    Designed with easy handling in mind, the MSA 161 T not only has an improved response of hand guard during activation and releasing of the chain brake, but also utilises a precise cutting behaviour to ensure a clean and smooth cut. In addition, the operating system has been enhanced with a sidelock for added safety and extended interlock for comfortable use. 


    The cordless nature of the new saw means that the MSA 161 T is so quiet in operation that ear defenders are not required while working, keeping any disruption to an absolute minimum and ensuring the machine is the perfect choice for use in noise sensitive areas. 


    The new MSA 161 T is powered by STIHL’s range of 36V AP batteries. Using the recommended AP 200 battery and AP 300 charger, the new saw affords professionals an impressive run time of up to 35 minutes on a single charge. Using STIHL’s AP 300 battery, users can benefit from a 50 minute run time.
