MSE 210 C-BQ


VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The high performance, lightweight STIHL MSE 210 C-BQ 1,900-watt electric chainsaw delivers the power do-it-yourselfers and contractors need for projects, such as woodworking, carpentry, and firewood cutting, without fuel costs and engine maintenance. The convenience of plugging into a 20 amp outlet makes it easy to use and means no exhaust, so it can be used for indoor projects.

“Users will like the MSE 210 C-BQ because it’s powerful and easy to operate; neighbors will like it because it’s quieter than the gasoline-powered equivalent,” said Kent Hall, STIHL Inc. senior product manager.

With a powerhead weighing in at just 9.4 pounds, the MSE 210 C-BQ features a soft grip handle and large trigger switch, making it comfortable and easy to operate. The toolless Quick Chain Adjuster makes tightening, loosening or replacing the chain almost effortless. Approved guide bar lengths range from 12 to 16 inches.

The MSE 210 C-BQ is equipped with the STIHL Quickstop® Plus coast-down brake, an additional chain braking feature which stops the rotating chain when the trigger is released.
