Even the best deserve an update: That's why STIHL has further optimised its MS 261 C-M chainsaw now. The power output is even higher, despite the reduced weight. With an extra 0.1 kW engine performance, the MS 261 C-M has the best power to weight ratio in its displacement class. Its highest possible performance is unleashed in combination with the STIHL M-Tronic (M) engine management.


Great for working in low-density and medium-density stands. Single start position and stop button function mean easy starting. Long-life air filter system with HD2 filter for only occasional cleaning, and captive nuts on the sprocket cover. With a Light 04 guide bar in an innovative design as well as the new .325" RS Pro saw chain for improved cutting performance.
