Now here's a game changer in chainsaws. Lightweight. Powerful. Easy to start. Quiet. With no mixing. No cords. And almost no sound. (Your neighbors will love this saw as much as you do.) And that's just for starters. The STIHL MSA 160 C-BQ is the first cordless chainsaw tough enough to carry the name STIHL. Powered by a STIHL Lithium-Ion battery, this little workhorse starts instantly, delivering 36 volts of power from its commercial-grade, high-torque brushless motor. Enough power to take on just about any cutting job in your yard. And the Quick Chain Adjuster allows you to adjust the chain tension without tools for added convenience. Each charge of the AP 300 Lithium-Ion battery gives you up to 50 minutes of cutting time for storm cleanup, carpentry tasks and firewood cutting.
Batteries & chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool. The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length based on which powerhead it is installed on. Run time may vary based on battery type, charge level and capacity, model, operating style and conditions.
