A cordless chainsaw with outstanding cutting power.

This innovative saw from STIHL fulfils even the highest demands for performance and working comfort. With a 12 inch / 30 cm bar length, this saw is sold as a shell only, so you will need to purchase a battery and charger to be able to use the machine.

Superior cutting performance

The 12 inch guide bar combined with its 1/4 inch PM3 saw chain (offering low-vibrations and low-kickback) means the MSA 160 C-BQ can deal with branches and small trees with a maximum diameter of 20 cm. It is a fantastic option for horticulturists, anyone working in property maintenance, cutting firewood or doing sawing work in enclosed areas.

Easy & comfortable to use

This saw benefits from STIHL's Quick Chain Tensioning system, which makes it very easy to adjust the chain. You just release the sprocket cover and turn the knob to set the optimum tension, with no tools needed. The machine is operated with two handles: one ergonomically shaped handle and a rear control handle with comfortable soft-grip to ensure safe working in all operating positions. It also features a tool-free filler cap, so you can top up the oil quickly and easily, with less chance of spillages. A weight (without battery) of just 3.1kg and low noise and vibrations mean this is a great tool to use.

Cordless freedom at your fingertips

When using STIHL's cordless tools, you don't have to worry about where the nearest power supply is, or deal with petrol fumes, loud noise, high vibrations, expensive maintenance and complicated starting. Instead you can work where previously you might not have been able to reach, or where power tools might otherwise be too noisy. With STIHL's electric motor powering the machine, excellent energy efficiency, a lightweight and compact design, quiet running and low vibrations are all assured, with no need for servicing. As this unit is sold as a shell only, you must purchase a battery and charger to be able to use it.

Please note: This is for the shell only. Battery and charger sold separately.
