A compact, cordless chainsaw with everything you need to get started.

Ideal for pruning back small branches or cutting up smaller logs, the MSA 120 C-BQ has a 12 inch / 30 cm cutting length.

STIHL's excellent cordless technology

The MSA 120 C-BQ is brilliantly lightweight, just 2.5kg excluding the battery, while being so quiet that you don't even need to wear ear protection while using it. Without petrol fumes, spillages, costly maintenance or power cables to think about, these tools really do give you a sense of freedom.

Efficient performance

This saw uses STIHL's Ematic chain lubrication system, which provides maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication. It offers the added benefit of up to 50 percent reduced bar oil consumption. The electric motor that this machine is powered by is also extremely efficient, lightweight and compact. The quiet running is only possible because of STIHL's intelligent engine design, while it also gives out very low vibrations and requires no servicing.

Easy, comfortable operation

STIHL's Quick Chain Tensioning system makes it extremely easy to adjust the chain's tension. You simply need to release the sprocket cover and turn the thumb wheel to set the optimum tension with no tools needed. The combination of clever design, light weight, low noise and low vibrations make the MSA 120 C-BQ a brilliantly easy tool to handle.

Battery and charger sold separately

The shell only does not include any battery or charger, for if you already have a compatible battery and charger from another STIHL machine. You may purchase these separately, or included in the MSA 120 C-B set or promo kit. 

The AK 20 battery will run for up to 40 minutes or do 120 cuts with one full charge. The recommended charger is the AL 101 standard charge, which will restore the AK 20 battery to full power in 180 minutes, and has a useful LED indicator, a velcro strap for containing the electrical cable, and it can be wall mounted if desired.
