The successor to STIHL's MS 460.

This powerful 4.4kW high-performance chainsaw is perfect for thinning work in medium and high density stands. With a choice of bar lengths between 18 inch (45 cm), 20 inch (50 cm) and 25 inch (63 cm).

Powerful performance

With its 4.4kW 2-MIX engine, the MS 461 offers performance you can count on. You can also enjoy the benefits of fuel savings of up to 20 percent, and exhaust emissions reduced by up to 50 percent, when compared to non-2-MIX equivalents. A compensator in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged, maintaining the engine's power as well as the fuel-air ratio, so that the filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.

A comfortable saw to use

Anti-vibration technology from STIHL helps to dampen the engine's oscillations so that vibrations at the handles are significantly reduced. This helps to guard against the potential long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms caused by power tools' intense vibrations. The MS 461 also has an ergonomic design that ensures all important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated using a single lever. With STIHL's ElastoStart system also present, the shock caused by the compression of the engine is taken away from your joints and muscles, and a decompression valve can be used to make it easier to pull the starter cord.

Easy & efficient operation

Ematic chain lubrication and a variable-displacement oil pump work together to drastically reduce oil consumption. The Ematic system provides maximum lubrication and longer wear, thanks to pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails. A HD2 filter traps even very fine dust particles, while being easy to clean, assemble and disassemble. The MS 461 benefits from tool-free filler caps to make topping up an easier process, and a side chain tensioner, so you can avoid contact with the sharp saw chain.
