The MSA 161 T is the next generation in cordless top handle chainsaws. This light weight chainsaw features a 40% higher chain speed and 15% increase in motor performance over its predecessor, the MSA 160 T. The low profile, ¼ P chain reduces chain chatter for a smooth and precise finish. The battery-powered chainsaw features a trigger side-lock button for added safety, a large throttle interlock lever and carrying ring for attaching the saw for aerial 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. With a run time of up to 42 minutes with the AP 200 battery, this cordless chainsaw is a perfect addition to the fleet.


NOTE: For purchase by certified arborists only.

    Great saw have used for 2 months many charges, find it just as good as my small petrol top handle saw. Lacks the absolute grunt of ms201 . I’d recommend it for light professional use.
