MSA 160 C-B Skin Only



Whether you want to saw firewood, fell fruit trees or do some woodwork: With the STIHL MSA 160 C-B battery chainsaw, you are ideally equipped for work in domestic environments, horticulture and landscape maintenance or in trades. As the engine is quiet and emissions-free in operation, you can use this powerhouse in noise-sensitive areas and even enclosed spaces.

The STIHL MSA 160 C-B chainsaw is a powerhouse among battery chainsaws. The direct transmission of power to the STIHL 1/4" PM3 saw chain, along with the intelligently controlled engine performance, ensure excellent cutting power, even for thicker branches and beams. Designed to have a small number of electrical components, the saw is impressively lightweight considering the performance it offers. It weighs just 3.1 kg (without the battery), ensuring you can work effortlessly even for longer periods. Other features of the STIHL MSA 160 C-B battery chainsaw:

  • With STIHL Quick Chain Tensioning, you can tension the chain safely and easily, even without tools.
  • While the QuickStop Super braking system increases safety at work.

In our overview of STIHL battery life and charging times, you can see how long you can work with your STIHL MSA 160 C-B battery chainsaw and how long the battery takes to charge.

All battery power tools within the STIHL AP system have been designed for professional users and daily work, including in adverse weather conditions.
